I finished building my first computer a few months ago and i had 4gbs ram. I just got 4gb and installed today. I have them set to 1600mhz in bios which they are supposed to be running at. I don't know much about ram timing so this is where i need help. They are supposed to be at 9-9-9-24 and in bios there is a string of numbers that are 11-11-11-29 in memory timing. Should I change the first 11-11-11-29 to 9-9-9-24 and leave everything else on auto? If not, what should i change them to?

Here are photos of the RAM timing menus in BIOS:



















Just let me know what you guys think i should change, I'm not trying to overclock them, just run them as advertised.

here is that RAM i bought:

Assuming the RAM is compatible wit your MOBO and they're installed in the correct slots the set the CAS 9-9-9-24-2T, and DRAM Voltage 1.5v.

Q - What MOBO and what slots is the RAM installed in?
Q - Besides the 2 sticks of {F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL} is there any other RAM installed?

Q - are they ALL the SAME 2 Kit of F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL? Also, if they're the same you need to install as follows {DO NOT MIX the Kits}:

KIT 1 A1 & B1
KIT 2 A2 & B2

From the picture {top}
11-11-11-29 corresponds to the 9-9-9-24, and it's the BIOS 'safe' guess. So change from Auto to the 9-9-9-24 the 2T is the DRAM Command Rate and the 24 is the TRAS.

I bought 1 kit of 2 (2x2gb) first, then another on black friday, they are the same kits and i didn't mix them, one kit is in A1 and B1 and the other is in A2 and B2.

Thanks for your help, I'm sort of new to RAM timing.

The AI Overclock Tuner 'may' require {Manual} to set the Speed {DDR3-1600}, Timings {9-9-9-24 the 2T}, and DRAM Voltage {1.5v}.

the voltage and speed are both correctly set, i know how to set those, it was just the timings i was iffy about. Thanks for your help though!
