Corsair XMS2 Voltages & Timings


Recommended Posts

Hey hey..


I have a EVGA 680i motherboard with 2x Corsair XMS2 TWIN2X2048-6400 RAM.


What are the recommended voltages and timings for this ram.


My comp freezes often and I am checking to make sure the settings are correct in BIOS.


I've heard that the BIOS defaults can be lower that the recommended settings.


Hopefully if I set them correctly it will stabilize my comp.


I'm new to this stuff but any help appreciated!

Please make sure that you have the latest bios and load setup defaults and then set the memory Voltage to 2.0 Volts then set the timings manually to the tested settings for the specific module you have, and test the modules one at a time with http://www.memtest.org to be sure one is not failing. 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. In addition, with some MB's (Mostly ASUS) you have to disable legacy USB in the bios when running any memory test.
