Just finished building my first system and I need some help with the bios (I apologize if this is the wrong thread). System is as follows...
4 gigs Kingston Hyper X-1066
2 samsung 500gb HDD, raid 0
2 HIS IceQ turbo 3870's in crossfire (I think)
Coolermaster 1000w ps
Vista Ultimate 64
yada yada, everything else shouldn't be all that relevant.
I can only get the ram to boot up at 800mhz instead of 1066mhz. In the cell section of the BIOS, how do you adjust the timings? It has been recommended to set the timings to 5-5-5-15 @2.2 volts to achieve 1066. In the BIOS you have the choice of auto, both, dct0, dct1 and then a long list of cas, trcd,trp,trtp,tras,trc,twr,trrd. etc etc. In which sections of the list do you select 5-5-5-15? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I didn't find much help in the manual.
in the bios where it says auto ram voltage, just press the + key to adjust the voltage. As for the timing, you have to turn the ram settings off auto, then adjust the trcd, trp, and tras timings to appropriate. I dont remmber the setup but the first three seetings you set to 5 then the fifth setting should be 15.this should help as well
