gigabyte Ga-m57sli-s4


Recommended Posts

i have read the post about the memory and this board... but want to ask a question anyhow... what i need to know is this:


i bought 4gigs of Gskill 6400 and was only able to run 2gigs stable... so i think its the ram...


i want to know what corsair memory you all would recommend i get for this board.. i would like 4gigs since i am running a 64bit vista...


also: i am a beginner so therefore not sure about how to set timing and all those detials of ram, if this needs to be done, please inform me and let me know how, or share a article about this... i really want to stabilize my pc and get better ram...


i should have gone corsair to start but took the cheap route and i got burned..

It is advised to drop the speed of the DRAM when you populate all four banks.

Download Memtest86+ V2.01 from--->

and extract the ISO image. Burn the ISO image to an CD-ROM disk.

Download CPU-z from

If you have the DRAM still, insert a stick, restart the system and enter your BIOS. On the main BIOS screen press Ctrl + F1. You will see the screen flicker. Next select the MB Intelligent Tweaker option. On that screen you will see many additional settings that were not there before and now you can change your DRAM settings.

MB Intelligent Tweaker (M.I.T)
CPU Frequency (MHz) = 200
PCIE Clock (MHz) = 100
CPU Clock Ratio = 14
Robust Graphics Booster = Auto
DDR2 OverVoltage Control = +.2v
Chipset/PCIE Voltage = +.3v
HT-Link Voltage = +.1v
CPU-HT-Link Voltage = +.1v
CPU Voltage Control = Auto

DRAM Configuration

Set Memory Clock = Manual
Memory Clock = DDR 667

DDRII Timing = Manual

CAS# Latency = 5T
RAS# to CAS# Delay = 5
Dram RAS# Precharge Delay = 5
Precharge Delay (tRAS) = 15
Command Timing = 2T
Command Delay = 3T
Trfc0 DIMM1 = 105 ns
Trfc2 DIMM2 = 105 ns
Trfc1 DIMM3 = 105 ns
Trfc3 DIMM4 = 105 ns
Write Recovery Time = 6
Precharge Time = 3
Row Cycle Time = 24
RAS to RAS Delay = 3
CKE Power Down Mode = Enable

Shut the system down and insert the other sticks. Boot to the Memtest CD. Run Memtest for two full passes. When assured of stable DRAM, then enter Windows and Run CPU-z and post screenshots of CPU-z's CPU, Memory and SPD tabs.
