I just built a new PC using the following motherboard and memory. The MB sees the full 6gb and functions as normal, except the timing is off of course. Its running at 1066mhz as I've read it will till I OC it to the rams recommended timing.

I have been through the bios now and I cannot find what timing settings I need to change to get this ram to its recommended timing (7-8-7-24 2N @ 1.5 volts). There is way more memory options in this bios then my previous.

Could someone explain what needs to change in the bios to setup my ram.

Set the timings for the first 4 options(DRAM CAS# Latency-DRAM to CAS delay-DRAM RAS PRE TIME-DRAM RAS ACT TIME)

Hi.

I just bought the same motherboard but some different ram. I was wondering if I could get some help on setting up my bios aswell.

The ram I bought is : CORSAIR 6GB DDR3 INTEL I7 DOMINATOR GT 2000MHZ CL8 (3X2GB)
I thnk they're unique name is : CMT6GX3M3A2000C8

When I look at the bios I see so much new stuff I hardly know where to begin. I don't understand the answer Maziar gave so I hope someone could be a bit more specific.

Thanks :)

Ok this is what the stock timings show to be on your ram: 8-9-8-24 @ 1.65v

What Maziar mentioned was the settings in the BIOS where you input those timings.

ie. 8-9-8-24 (DRAM CAS# Latency-DRAM to CAS delay-DRAM RAS PRE TIME-DRAM RAS ACT TIME)

or better put:

DRAM CAS# Latency: 8
DRAM RAS# to CAS# Delay: 9
DRAM RAS# PRE Time: 8
DRAM RAS# ACT Time: 24

Hope that helps :)

That makes sense :)  Thanks!

There's a lot of settings in the bios so I thought I had to mess with a whole lot of parameters to get this to work. This almost seems to easy...

I noticed I could choose some non-auto settings about my ram speed but that 2000 MHz was not an option. I suppose entering those timings will override the other default settings then?

More than likely they will. The time speed sets your ram to a specific speed. By increasing/decreasing your timings with the combination of increasing your voltage you could increase your ram's speed. Which is easier for most users. You can manually increase your ram, than waiting for your BIOS to do it for you.
