Advice on timing setting - NewB

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am using 2x 2048 - pc2-8500 c5 sticks. My mem ddr freq is 1053.

 

I have had some issues with stability during my OC but have found that my problems have gone away now that I have relaxed the timings. Although I currently have stability, my timings were just a guess by reading in some forums. My original timings were 5-5-5-15 @2.1 volts. When I went to

6-6-6-18 @1.9, I gained stability. Now I would like to creep them up a bit if I can.

 

I was wondering is if someone could provide me some timing suggestions to tighten these up until I lose stability. I am just not confident nor knowledgeable enough to provide a good engineering approach to this. I do wish to get the best possible performance, but not sure of the numbers to try.

 

Regards

BG

Can you tell us the make and model of MB and the CPU you have installed and it’s FSB as well? In addition, please tell me the bios settings you have set for both CPU and memory and any performance settings that you may have set?

I would need the exact settings you have set in the BIOS not what is shown in an application and that looks like you are over clocking the CPU to almost 400 MHz and if so that is normal you may not be able to get the memory up to full speed because of loading on the memory controller.
