I have 2x1gb of OCZ platinum DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) and a MSI P45 Neo2-FR LGA 775 intel motherboard. When I use system information for windows it shows this:
DRAM frequency: 243.0MHz
memory timings: 5-7-7-18
memory type: DDR2 (PC2-5300)
speed: 333MHZ (DDR2 667)
memory timings: 5-5-5-15-19 at 333MHz at 1.8 volts
I have been told that if I go to bios and set the voltage to 2.2volts that it will magically fix everything. Can anybody confirm this or give me their expert opinion to get this memory at least running at 800mhz if not 1066?
As one of the review said, you need to change the settings in the BIOS so that the board will use SLI mode of the memory. this is what the guy said:
Pros: Booted 1st time no problems, loaded bios and set timings manually and enabled SLi and now it screams.
Cons: 2.3v to run SLi (1066Mhz) on a 680i-TR - needs active cooling (FANS over the ram)
Other Thoughts: In order to get this ram to run at 1066Mhz on a 680i you have to manually set the timings (Expert) then where it shows "SLi read memory = Disabled" press enter and scroll all the way down to "Expert", save and reboot, and you're done. <<
Please try this above suggestion, and let us know. Thank You.
