RAM timings and voltage help (BIOS)

My system is crashing because of the Atikmpag and Atikmdag. Some say I should check my BIOS for my ram timings and ram voltage and make sure it's ok.

I checked the timings and from what I gather, the top 4 were 9-9-9-24 like people suggested but I don't know how to change the voltage. I found the location where it says DRAM 1.5v but when I go in the options I just see 1.64 and 1.66. The 1.66 and beyond is pink font. Should I got to 1.64 or 1.66 when people say it's 1.65v? Does the pink font mean it's dangerous at that level?

Here is my system:

  1. Atikmpag and Atikmdag are related to your video card. Make sure you have the latest ATI drivers. Check the card's speeds in CCC (ATI Overdrive), you may want to reduce them a little.
  2. I have 10.6 CCC from ATI.

    The first XFX 5770 I had ran default speeds of 400/1200 for some reason. I know they are supposed to be 157/300. I RMA'd that one and now have a Sapphire 5770 and the default is 157/300.

    You are saying I should reduce* them? I was told the opposite, to actually increase the idle to 200/400.

    I haven't changed them yet.

    Please help.
  3. There seems to be quite a lot on the web regarding these driver-related issues. Here's a link to the AMD forums, which also may help. I know AMD has sold a lot of HD 5770's, but that card seems to be the most affected. Reducing the clock and MEM frequencies MAY help.
