Memory Settings for Intel D975XBX2 and Dual Core E6700


Recommended Posts

Hello... I'm looking to make sure that I have the appropriate memory configuration for my memory and my board... As expected, I want my premium memory to be running as fast as possible with as much stability as I can. I run VMWare Server on the workstation, so it gets quite a workout...


I have four CM2X1024-8500C5D modules (2 2gig kits), and Intel D975BX2 motherboard with an Intel Core 2 Duo E6700.

Currently, according to CPU-Z, the memory is running at the following:

Frequency: 533 mHz

CAS Latency: 5.0

RAS# to CAS#: 5

RAS# Precharge: 5

Tras: 15

Trc: 22

Command Rate: 2T




PS - In the BIOS, I have the following in the memory overrides section. All the rest of the items are default (nothing overclocked)


Memory Correction: Non-ECC


Performance Memory Profiles: <AUTOMATIC>

Reference Frequency: <DEFAULT>

Memory Frequency: <800 mhz>

tCL: 5

tRCD: 5

tRP: 5

tRASmin: 18

Memory Voltage: 1.84

With that MB I doubt it will run one set at 1066 with out way over volting the Chipset and CPU but with 4 modules you would need to run the memory at DDR667 and I would set the memory Voltage to 2.1 Volts and you should be able to run the timings at Cas 4-4-4-12.
