Solved Help w/Performance DRAM Timings Tags: MSI-Microstar Dram Motherboards Last response: January 23, 2010 12:11 AM in Motherboards Share GenXer January 22, 2010 1:19:35 AM I have everything up and running: MSI NF750-G55 AMD Phenom II 550 BE 4GB Corsiar Dominator GT for Phenom II's (1066/1333/1600 O.C.) EVGA GeForce GTX 260 FSB RAM=1:4 Dual Channel Mode Timings: 9-11-11-29, 1T @1600MHz, 1.68v I cannot reach the Manf. recommended timings for this RAM. 7-7-7-20, 1T @1.65v without BSOD everytime. This RAM cost $$$. Each stick was shipped in different pks. Maybe, they should have been together in the same pack? This would make sense if they were tested together. That's what they advert. If, I understand timings and freq correctly... Higher freq's are only better if you have faster timings with DDR3? Anyone have an idea or this issue before?

I called Corsair and Tech SPT recommends increasing my CPU-NB-VDD slightly. Hopefully, this will help stablize the freq increase at those timings. I did as they suggested and I have not BSOD as of yet. | Report abuse Upendra09 Motherboard Expert January 22, 2010 10:20:05 PM nice ope it runs smooth | Report abuse GenXer January 23, 2010 12:11:10 AM Best answer selected by GenXer. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Motherboards>Help w/Performance DRAM Timings> Related ressources: ForumHelp with DRAM Timings ForumOverclocking DRAM Timings ForumFSB: DRAM And RAM Timings issues!
