ASUS P5E3 Premium, E8400, XMS3


Recommended Posts

Hey Guys - noob question here. I have this mobo and paired it with the E8400 and 4GB of CORSAIR XMS3 DDR 3 RAM (1333), which the settings in the mobo is set to auto, but is rated at 9-9-9-24. The bios is set to auto set the timing for the memory, but I really want to manually set them myself, but the bios seems much more involved than what I am accustomed to.


Can I get guidance on how I can set the memory settings manually for this board? Any recommendations or suggestions would be great.


Again, sorry for the nooby question, but this mobo is rather involved.
