NF7-S V.2.0 400 Sapphire 9600pro 128mb XP 2600 333 DDR Corsair 2*256 cmx256a-3200LLPT real happy with my corsair, do not want to change anybios settings thats gunna melt summuts, wot voltage should i have going to my Ram?. should i alter the Ram timings in bios from speed to aggressive?. was wandering if i can slap a stick of 512 in (as i only have 3 dimms) or would i be losing benefits of DUAL????? and get no real gain for my money?. and could u advise on what would be compatible with what i have, i just wanna find all the options that are available to me. thx for ya time

Welcome to the forums, [WP]DusteR! Alrighty... NF7-S, I'd set the timings to "MANUAL" and enter them in as: CAS - 2 RAS to CAS Delay - 3 RAS Precharge - 2 Cycle Time - 6 DDR Voltage - 2.7x As for adding another 512Mb's, I'd buy a single CMX512-3200LL module and put it in DIMM slot 3 with the two 256Mb modules in DIMMs 1 & 2. This'll give each memory controller 512Mb's to use and you'll still have Dual-Channel enabled! However, if you added this third stick, I'd set the timings to: CAS - 2.5 RAS to CAD Delay - 3 RAS Precharge - 3 Cycle Time - 6 DDR Voltage - 2.7x PLUR CK

thx for the welcome and info CK!, not into benchmarking but i think im squeezing a few more FPS outta my games :) , as for the upgrade advice as soon as i got the 100 quid that extra sticks mine. Oh yeah would u run ram at 400mhz even though my processor is at 333mhz?

Please try and set the timings manually to Cass 2-3-2-6 with the Rass to Cass set to "3" and set the Dim Voltage to 2.7 Volts and then run [url]www.memtest86.com[/url] to be sure it's stable!
