On Monday I start my first build and thank the community for their help with component selection. I'm reading all the guides and tutorials I can, but thought I'd check here for any input.
What BIOS settings should I be checking and what are the ideal numbers for my build? (temperature, voltage, speeds, making sure all the hardware is detected). I do not plan on overclocking right away. This computer is meant for gaming. Comments on any of the areas, like (Ram - should show X, CPU should show Y, Vid card should show Z) would be great...or any other tips/suggestions/guides.
Size: 8192 MB
DRAM voltage: 1.5V
DRAM frequency: 667ish
CAS# latency (CL): 9
RAS# to CAS# delay (tRCD): 9
RAS# Precharge (tRP): 9
Cycle time (tRAS): 24 or 27
Those are the defaults for RAM, your link is broken so I can't see what your timings are supposed to be but you can manually adjust it or use the xmp profile.
You can fish around the bios to find these values as well. Motherboards don't refer to the same items with the same terminology like Core clock is called gpu clock in gpu-z. But that should be what your items are roughtly.
