Need some tuning help for TWIN2X2048-8500C5D


Recommended Posts



I've been running my memory at 999 MHz (using a FSB/Memory ratio of 1:1.50). By default the BIOS reported it as 1067 MHz but the system would not resume from sleep properly unless I underclocked it.


My CPU is not overclocked and running at factory 3 GHz. The memory is using the default voltage and SPD timings as well, on a MSI P35 Platinum Combo motherboard.


I'm one part stuck and 2 parts confused as I can't get the memory to run at 1066 MHz. I've tried changing the timings to 5-5-5-15-2T and upping the memory voltage to 2.1V, but when I do that the system will not even POST.


Presently the 999MHz is the highest I can run and maintain stability. I don't understand how to tune the rest of the settings:


CAS# latency

RAS# to CAS# delay

RAS# precharge

RAS# activate to precharge







Any suggestions for upping the RAM speed? All under an AMI BIOS v. 2.61
