Timing for G.Skill F3-10666CL8D-4GBHK

So, my GigaByte GA-880GMA-UD2H set my memory in auto to 9-9-9-24 x. Got a WEI of 5.9, either ganged or unganged.
Tried setting it to G.Skill specs of 8-8-8-21-2T, wouldn't post due to "over clocking". Huh?

Didn't change anything else.

  1. Go into BIOS and raise the DRAM voltage to 1.6v (it's safe, don't worry). When you tighten timings it takes a little more voltage.
  2. Thanks Noworldorder.
    Don't really understand the 1T vs 2T thing yet though, but I will.
    My understanding is that these sticks are good to 1.65v, so I'll try. The "overclocking" bit gave me pause.
    This my first build. Figured I have some room to tweak, but it's pretty quick now, and holding at 32c.
    Never going to do any gaming, this is a pure business apps machine, with a little growth potential. Or so I thought when I chose hardware. Hence the onboard HD4250. Sufficient to run dual 20" LED/LCDs, w/ excel and Peachtree, etc.
    The rig is a gift, so I don't want to stress it. Wanted it to comfortably idle along, but do so quickly.
    Thanks again
  3. Just thought I would let you know that the 5.9 ram score is due to the onboard video card using system ram; it slows it down. If your HD 4250 has the 128MB of sideport memory (not all of them do, but my asus M4A88TD-V EVO did, it will say in the manual, on the box, or on the newegg description) try going into bios and switching it so the card only uses that. The video performance will take a hit but your ram score should improve. Or you could just put in a cheap discrete card and that will slove the problem as well. My 4GB 1600Mhz 9-9-9-24 went from a 5.9 to a 7.3 once I changed the bios settings. Although I wasn't satisfied with the video performance so I bought an HD 4770 off ebay for 45 bucks and it works great. Just a side note: WEI scores are junk even though my score went from 5.9 to 7.3 there was absolutly no noticeable differance in performance. I had the same issue with my first and second build and I didn't solve the problem till the second build since the first didn't have the sideport memory. Good luck I hope this solves the problem for you
