purity Posted October 20, 2008 Share Posted October 20, 2008 Dear RamGuy, I never have stability problem or BSOD, but when I check my system with CPU-Z yesterday, I was surprise to see that my system DRAM speed is so low. The Timings on CPU-Z show : DRAM Freq: 592.1Mhz FSB:DRAM 1:2 CL : 7.0 Clocks tRCD: 7 Clocks tRP : 7 Clocks tRAS: 20 Clocks Command Rate : 2T on the other page called SPD, it show information per slot. at SLOT1 (all other slot look exactly the same), it said Module Size 1024MB Max Bandwidth PC3-8500F (533Mhz) ??? I tought mine will be at least 1066Mhz since that is the FSB speed of Q6600??? manufacturer: Corsair (of course :) ) Part number CM3X1024-1333C9DHX then the timings table... and I notice at the bottom the Voltage is 1.5Volts. for the CPU, the clocks on Core#0: Core Speed (keep changing) from 1776.3Mhz to 2664.7Mhz Multiplier x6.0 Bus Speed 296.0 Mhz ??? Rated FSB 1184.2 Mhz ??? My questions are: a. I think my system is not optimize to the full capability available... since I leave all the BIOS setting on Auto except some setting where I put "stronger" I forget which one is that, and another setting I put "High performace" or something like that... b. I do not mind reasonable Overclocking if needed to bring the system to it's best/optimal performance/stability c. I have the latest 1406 bios from ASUS and all latest update from Microsoft.Well I never experience any issue with older bios ... but I suspect that because my system is so UNDERTUNE. d. Would you mind giving me spec I need to change on the BIOS to bring my system to it's proper speed? I think my Memory would not be able to run at 1333 Mhz since my Q6600 still at 1066FSB right ? but at least my Memory should run at 1066MHZ and not at lousy 592.1Mhz??? again I am newbie, please tell me which option on the bios to choose. I am not really familiar which menu correspond to latency etc etc... When I got early lesson from you, I am sure I can learn more optimizing by my self later on.But I need to get the most basic lesson on this one... oh yeah, one last thing, I change the jumper on the Motherboard, so it allow for higher voltage(following the owner manual book)... but I did not know how to actually set up the voltage in the bios in the first place.... Thank you for your kind help in this matter Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
