Need Help with set up of PC2700 RAM

Hi, I am new to here but would like your input.

I just built a Soyo KT333 dragon lite and Athlon X 2100+ . I am using the GEIL 512MB PC2700 333MHZ ULTRA RAM that’s rated CAS 2 5-2-2 1T. I am not sure what the CAS number means.

I installed it and put it in the default settings.
Check WCPUID and gave me a reading of:
CAS# Latency 2.5 clocks; RAS# to CAS# Delay 3 clocks; RAS# Precharge 3 Clocks; Cycle Time (Tras)6 clocks;

(here’s a link to where I bought this memory) http://www.buyxtremegear.com/geil2700512u.html

How do I set this properly to make it CAS 2 5-2-2 1T? I would like to manually set this in the bios. I need help on deciding which numbers work best!

Here is what my BIOS has and the choices.

DRAM timing – By SPD; Manual

DRAM CAS – 2.5; 2

Bank Interleave – Disabled; 2 bank; 4 bank

Precharge to Active (trp) 2t; 3t

Active to Precharge (Tras)- 6t; 7t

Active CMD (Tred)- 2t; 3t

DRAM Queue Depth- 2 Level; 4 Level; 3 Level

DRAM Command Rate - 2T Command; 1T Command


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  1. Go with the lowest numbers, except for DRAM queue depth and bank interleave. If you can't boot or are unstable, increase the numbers.
