i7 and TR3X6G1600C8D Voltages


Recommended Posts

I am trying to get the most out of my TR3X6G1600C8D. The BIOS setting are all default. I just need to know what settings I need to change in the BIOS. I have already seen the thread with the screen shots of the BIOS settings, the closest board is the T3eH6. I need to know what are all the specific settings I need to change. I know the ram says 1.65v at 8-8-8-24. Won't just setting dram bus voltage to 1.65v like recommended throw off the QPI voltage since they need to be in sync, or can the other voltage remain the defaults when dram bus is set to 1.65v. Please tell me the exact settings I need to change. Thanks for any help.

Am I suppose to copy all the setting? or just the ones that are highlighted? Sorry, I am afraid of screwing something up. Thanks.
