Hi there I have a Gigabyte GA-770TA-UD3 board with some OCZ3X1600LV4GK memory in it. The memory is listed as:
XMP Profile 1:1600MHz 8-8-8-24 1.65V
XMP Profile 2:1800MHz 9-9-9-28 1.65V
Available 4GB D/C Optimized kits
Unbuffered


However when i change the timing to 8-8-8-24 and change the multiplier to make 1600 MHz I cant boot into my XP I get a blue screen.

There are a million different things in the bios. How do I go about doing this properly?

Set the timings as shown:

CL - 8
tRCD - 8
tRP - 8
tRAS - 24
CR - 2T

Also, make sure your vDIMM or memory voltage is set at 1.65V.

This. Chances are you didn't increase the voltage, and less likely but still possible is that the CR is on 1T instead of 2T (although mine say 2T but work just fine at 1T).

Slightly less likely even is that the more advanced timings are too low such as WtR, RtR, WtW and all the other ones. Your best bet is to enable XMP, save and restart, then go into the BIOS and disable XMP but keep the settings, and then you can change your BCLK or OC stuff whatever just make sure the memory speed and timings don't change.

ahhh since i've fixed this i have been having issues with my ATI 5770, whever I run a game it says VPU recovery and crashes my computer.
The two causes of this that apply to me are bad RAM settings and faulty card.

I mem-tested my ram and it didnt say anything (finished crazy fast!)

so in case its just other bad setting I posted the bios pages, thanks for any help

Well that sounds like a GPU issue. Have you OCed it? If so, it's not stable. If not... might be a bummed GPU.
