I need to tweak my memory voltage and timings ect.
I found this guide.
But there's no information about Timing.

MY spec:
Asus 9800gx2 (
p5e3 deluxe (
Processor Quad core Q9550 (
Corsair CM3X2048-1333C9DHX (2x4GB) Yes i know they are not in the vendor list for my Motherboard but they work and have been since 2008 :p 
650W+550W = Total 1200W Power Supply (antec performance one p190) [...] 6811129028

When I overclock, I let the board choose the timings. Even though the speed may be a little lower, the system runs smoother. You won't notice the speed difference as much anyway. 775 doesn't take full advantage of the faster ram speed like newer 1155 cpus. I also prefer the ram to run at spec by reducing the speed by about the same percentage as I increase the cpu speed, so the net ram speed is around the ram spec. So, for 1333 ram, I set it manually at 1066 and if the cpu fsb is normally at 200, I bump it up to 240 or 250 so the net ram speed is 1333. But can try for higher ram speed if your asus board can handle it.

I could game almost 20 min before the comp freezes and gives me sound loop.
Does providing Event viewer logs help ?
