Hello everyone...been reading all over this forum and cant seem to find what i need...so i was hoping you guys can help me...

 

ok, heres the thing:

 

im using 2x1gb CM3X1G1600C9DHX wich according to this:

 

http://www.corsair.com/_datasheets/tw3x2g1600c9dhx.pdf

 

should run at 9 9 9 24 1600 with 1.8v and its supposed to be Pc3-12800

 

i updated my bios, and changed manually to make it run at 9 9 9 24 leaving in auto the rest, including the voltage.

 

when i run cpuz, and go to the SPD tab the voltage is at 1.5v and the max bandwidth is PC3-8500F (533 MHz)

 

on the other hand in the memory tab, the frecuency is 803, is running at 9 9 9 24 and the tRC is 33, and the CR is 1T

 

heres what cpuz shows:

the questions are:

 

1-) is this allright? i ran memtest for 3 passes no errors whatsoever.

2-) should i rise the voltage to 1.8 ?

3-) is there anything else i need to do to ensure my system is 100% stable?

 

 

thanks in advance...

1. Looks great to me, you are at 803.5MHz which = DDR 1607. 2. If it is stable at less than 1.8v, leave it alone. Less is better. If it's not stable, raise it in small increments till you are.

3. See #2 above.

 

That's the SPD setting, not the actual frequency your system is running.

 

You are operating at the frequency shown on the MEMORY tab.

oh thanks, i had no idea that those 2 were different, thanks again :D!

 

Also, the memory in your specs is different than the memory in this post.

 

just fixed it, heh.

 

i wrote what was in the pdf at the website, thanks :D

 

 

 

oh yeah, i forgot to ask should i change any of the auto ones to something ? because what im doing is:

 

Memory Clock Mode .. (Manual)

Memory Clock Value .. (800)

DRAM Timing Mode ... (DCT 0)

tRWTT0 ........................ (AUTO)

tWRWR ......................... (AUTO)

trDRD ......................... (AUTO)

TCL ......................... (9 CLK)

TRCD ....................... (9 CLK)

TRP .......................... (9 CLK)

tRTP ......................... (AUTO)

TRAS ....................... (24 CLK)

TRC .......................... (AUTO)

tWR .......................... (AUTO)

TRRD ........................ (AUTO)

tRWTTO ..................... (AUTO)

tWRRD ....................... (AUTO)

tWTR ......................... (AUTO)

tWRWR ....................... (AUTO)

tRDRD ........................ (AUTO)

tRFC0 ......................... (AUTO)

tRFC1 ......................... (AUTO)

tRFC2 ......................... (AUTO)

tRFC3 ......................... (AUTO)

overvoltage...................(AUTO)

 

 

and considering my specs, should i run with 1600? or lower? im mostly gaming heh but everything in my bios is set to auto even the OC part should i leave it like that? ... thanks for all guys i know im a pest, but just jumped from a Pentium III to this and i feel lost in time heh

All of the other settings should be left at their current AUTO/default settings where they are now. Leaving your memory as is at 1600 is the best option in my opinion unless you want to start OCing the CPU. Basically, if you want to OC, change stuff. Otherwise, if it is stable follow the old "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" rule.
