Default gigabyte UD3P + 8 gig Mushkin Redline Timing/Speed

Hi,

I just finished building my computer...

I have a Gigabyte Ga-Ep45-ud3p with 4 x 2gig mushkin Redline (8 gig)
in my bios ram is detected (auto) at 5-4-4-10 @ 800hmz.

Normally this said should be running at 5-5-5-12 @ 1000mhz.
How do i set them to the rated timing / speed ?

PS: I'm total noob about overclocking, playing with timing, voltage, this such of thing... so i want to be sure before changing some setting. i do not want to screw up something!

Thank for any help!

With just a board and rams its kinda hard to give timings.

Its best you give us some specs about your CPU. Overclocked ?

Remember that to run the redlines at 1000mhz you need about 2.0v, but since your using all 4 sticks you might require more juice.

And also i dont see the point of running the ram at max settings unless your doing benchmarks or doing a lot of encoding or compressing/extracting.

My cpu is a Q9650 and not overclocked.

When i go the bios i can see the ram at 800mhz with timing 5-4-4-10.

Here is a reply I got from Greg awhile back that may help:


tCL (CAS Latency): 5
tRCD: 5
tRP: 5
tRAS: 15
Command Per Clock (CMD): 2T
** Advanced Memory Settings **
tRRD: 4(3-4)
tRC: 31(26 if maximum value)
tWR: 6(5-6)
tWTR: 11(9-11)
tREF: Auto (7.8us)


Memory: 2.0-2.1v
SPP Voltage: 1.28-1.40v if experiencing instability

1066Mhz - 1080Mhz should be in reach, depending on bios though, you can get limited to 1066Mhz.

Maculosa,

No guarantee that you'll be stable with 8Gb @ 1000MHz

Try these settings:

Performance Enhance: Standard (Higher can provide additional performance, tweak later)
Extreme Memory Profile (X.M.P): Disabled
(G)MCH Frequency Latch: 266 or 333Mhz
System Memroy Mutliplier(SPD): 3.0 for 1333FSB cpu
CAS Latency Time: 5
tRCD: 5
tRP: 5
tRAS: 12

>Advanced Timing Control
tRRD: 4(3-5)
tWTR: 5(2-5)
tWR: 6(4-6)
tRFC: 60(50-60)
tRTP: 6(4-6)
Command Rate(CMD): 2T
>>>>>> Channel A
Static tRead Value: 9 (6-8)
tRD Phase(0-3) Adjustment: Auto
Trd2rd(Different Rank): Auto
>>>>>> Channel B
Static tRead Value: 9 (6-8)
tRD Phase(0-3) Adjustment: Auto
Trd2rd(Different Rank): Auto

DRAM Voltage: 2.0V - 2.1V
MCH Core Voltage: 1.30-1.40v if experiencing instability
