Please try and set the Dim Voltage to 2.7 Volts and you can use this as a reference for the timings.

CAS Latency CL=2.5

Row Cycle Time tRC Bios Default

Row Refresh Cyc Time tRFC Bios Default

Ras# to CAS# delay tRCD 3

Row to Row delay Bios Default

Min Ras# Active Time tRAS 8

Row Precharge Time tRP 3

Write Recovery Time Bios Default

Write to Read delay Bios Default

Read to Write Delay Bios Default

Enable 2T Timing Enabled

Then test the system with http://www.memtest.org and make sure it's stable!

Thanks alot for the fast replys,it makes things go alot smoother!

The bank enterleave, cant set to auto, it's enabled or disabled,and if I select enable,I have a choice of 2way or 4 way.

I think it's going to be alot better with the setting you posted, I just think I need to find out what the interleave setting should be.

Thanks Again
