What's the correct BIOS settings?

Hello,

 

It appears I have the same type/amount of RAM and problem as this guy: http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?t=79869

 

The only difference is I have i7 930 with Asus P6X58D E Motherboard. I could not locate the NB/MCH/SPP Voltage in my BIOS -- so what should I change instead? What settings in the BIOS do you suggest to solve the freezing problem?

 

 

Here's how the BIOS menu looks. NOTE: THIS IS NOT MY SETTING. I DO NOT OVERCLOCK. EVERYTHING IS ON DEFAULT. THIS IS FOR REFERENCE ONLY.

IOH Voltage............................[1.14]

IOH PCIE Voltage.......................[1.50]

ICH Voltage............................[1.20]

ICH PCIE Voltage.......................[1.50]

Please describe your issue in your own words. When does it freeze? How often? At boot, or in the OS?

 

Thank you for the reply.

 

On default settings, it freezes anytime with in a minute if not seconds -- both in the BIOS (at boot) or in OS. However, I adjusted my ram timing to 9-9-9-24 and upped the voltage to 1.70v and changed the frequency to 1333mhz.

 

Now, the freeze occurs after 30-60 minutes into the computer's running time. When it freezes, things appear to be running fine in the background (for example, the download continues even though my screen is locked up) So, I am looking for the optimal setting (timing, voltage, etc) for the RAM in bios. Thank you! :)

 

Edit: After 200+ reboots and trying different settings -- I have given up on the RAM. I finally have decided to RMA this to the who I brought it from. They will charge me re-stocking fee. :(
