It's when i have 2x1gb sticks of ram in....

is it easy & safe to change the timings ??

can it cause any problems to leave it at 5-5-5-18.... ?

thnx for the reply.... Hixx


i do have 4x1gb of domminator pc8500... 2 matched pairs... but one is 2.20v the other is 2.10v !!

causing my system to crash constantly... so taken 1 pair out...

Things have been stable for a day or 2... :o: .. got into the bios-changed the timings to 5-5-5-15... 1066mhz

this is for 2x1gb sticks of ram... gonna put 4x1gb in & change to 800mhz-5-5-5-15

rather have 4gb running stable... @ 2.20v... & see what gives... thanx again for all your help & guidence... Hixx ;):
