Changing timings

hello,

i recently bought a AMD X6 1090T CPU along with a Asus M4A89GTD mobo.

The ram which i've installed is a G.Skill F3-128000CL6-2GBPI....

Now the problem is that when i assembled and started the pc it accepted the Ram at 1333 Mhz with timings of 9-9-9-25

I changed it to1600 Mhz from bios settings but I couldn't change the timings as i dont now how to do and what all parameters to change ??

This is the actual specs of my ram:

DDR3
Intel P55
6-8-6-24-2N
4GB (2GB x2)
DDR3-1600 (PC3 12800)
1.6 Volts

Unbuffered
Non-ECC
240-pin DIMM

Now how should i change the timings to 6-8-6-24-2N...pls. guide me as i want to use its full potential.


Now even after changing it to 1600 Mhz then too why is it still showing 667 instead of 800 in CPU-z main window ??
Pls. explain......








And also why is the multiplier always fluctuating in CPU-z from x4.0 to 8.0 to x16.0 and then again back to x4.0 every 2-3 secs..... this leads to always changing of core speed from 800.xxx to 1600.xxxx and 3200.xxx Mhz's...why so ?? is it because of its turbo core feature or sumthin ??



And also the core voltage is fluctuation every 2-3 secs. from 1.176v to 1.164v and back again....



pls. serious help needed...m worried :(

Find the settings in the BIOS, should be under Memory Settings, then Timings or so. If you really can't find it then look for it in your board manual.

The CPU scales back to save power, it should stay there unless your loading the processor up. If you load it up it will stay at full speed and not change. This is the same for the voltage. This is known as "CoolnQuiet"

Thank u very much....

i found the settings of timings, but should I change it to max i.e. 6-8-6-24 or can i put any value like 7-7-7-24...m asking this question as this memory isnt't there in Asus m4a89gtd's QVL....and in its qvl there was no memory with the timings of cl6 only cl 7, 8 and 9 mems were on the list....

And what if the timings of 6-8-6-24 dont work and my pc refuses to start...would i be able to revert it back to 9-9-9-25....there's also a mem OK switch on the mobo...

Thanx again...

Yeah your memory is just rated down to those timings. I got my G.SKill Ripjaws C7 1600MHz to 5-6-5-20 1400MHz.

6 is rather rare as its more high end. It should start at 6-8-6-24 as thats what the memory is rated for...

[EDIT]
Yes you can revert it back by resetting the CMOS.
