Default AMD X2 +4200 E4 & Corsair 2048 3500LLPRO

I need Bios settings for these two pieces of hardware...

SPECS

AMD X2 4200 E4 Manchester
ASUS A8N32SLI Deluxe
Corsair XMS 2048-3500LLPRO
Dual BFG 7800gtx in SLI
Antec Truepower 2.0 SLI READU 550w

-----------------------------------------------

DRAM Clock??? I do not see this setting in the BIOS ver 1103...? Is it under a different name since most BIOS are different on different mobos.

otherboard make and model: Asus A8N-SLI Premium
Each pair is tested and packaged together using the following settings:
CPU External Frequency: Manually set to 217MHz
DRAM Clock: Manually set to 1:1 or 400MHz
SDRAM CAS Latency: 2.0T
SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T
SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 2T
SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 6T
SDRAM Bank Interleave: 4 Bank
SDRAM VDIMM: 2.75
Command Rate 1T
All other settings are motherboard defaults.
Maximum recommended VDIMM: 2.9

that is the information i have seen RamGuy post along with pictures to the bios... But my processor is different so i would like to know the correct settings for my processor and memory.

I will post screenshots as well







PLEASE HELP!!! With anything you see that is incorrect... Those screen shots were my settings from all the information i have pulled off the net. But i recently went back to default settings cause i was growing insecure as to if they would blow up in my face!!!

Thanks

Frog

No the memory clock Value should always be set to 200 MHz, If you want to Over clock you should set the CPU Frequency at the desired Frequency and leave the memory set to 200 MHz, so the memory is running in sync with the CPU.

Thank you again Ramguy

Your replies are always informative!

Is there any information or Lit that you can direct me to that will teach me the ins and outs of Bios RAM and the cpu.

Thanks again

Thanks Wired

Those links are very useful. Can you see anything else wrong with my bios settings with the hardware information above and the screenshots i have posted?

So how do you set the corsair ram at whats its advertised as? Or so how do you over clock it?

Your question has already been answered, but I will try and put it a little different. The memory frequency setting is a divider setting and setting the memory frequency at DDR400 will set the memory frequency Ratio at 1-1 with the CPU, so when you over clock the CPU frequency to 217 MHz it will automatically set the memory frequency at the same frequency as your CPU.

I hate to bump this again... Cause you have been very clear and helpful as well.

But, i was reading on the website that my particular memory is tested at 418mhz... How do i get my RAM working fully to its tested ability?

And thanks again

Yes that should be fine except I would set the Command Rate to 2T with the CPU you have.
