hi, i want to change the timmings of my ram in the bios, because i noticed in CPU-Z that the timmings are 2.5.3.3.5 when i have Corsair CMX512-3200XLPRO which should run at 2.2.2.5 when i changed them manualy i could not restart windows xp. it will only start if i set the bios to auto, which gives me slower timmings..?? can anyone help? :sigh!:

Please set the Dim Voltage to 2.8 volts and then set the timings manually to the tested settings for the specific module you have, XMS3200XL Cass 2-2-2-5 and then test the module/'s one at a time with www.memtest.org! If you still get errors, please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it! However, if you get errors with both modules that would suggest some other problem and I would test them in another system or MB to be sure.
