Maximus Formula and 8500C5D - best non-OC settings and a weird problem?

Recommended Posts

Hi There,


I have a Maximus Formula motherboard and TWIN2X2048-8500C5D G memory version 2.3 (not 2.2). Quad Core 2.4 G0.


Timings are set manually to to 5-5-5-15 and the command rate to 2T. Memory voltage has also been manually set to 2.1V.


For some reason, when I run CPU-Z or Everest, it shows that the memory SPD reported as CM2X1024-10000C5D. The same is reported when all settings are set to "Auto".


Is there something wrong here?


I do not want to over clock my PC - what are the best settings I should use for this motherboard and memory?


Conversely, if I did want to overclock my PC in the future, what would be the best memory settings?

These modules may have been programmed with the wrong part number in the SPD. This is not going to effect any performance or compatibility. Can you tell me what the EPP settings are listed as in the SPD tab of CPU-Z? These modules are tested at 5-5-5-15 at 2.15 volts to operate at 1066MHz. Any overclocking settings beyond our tested settings could not be guaranteed, however you can test on your own and see how far you can push them!
