Little problem...
I've been getting a lot of BSOD often, and I think they are memory related.

When I bootup my pc, I see 4gb registered, but at 5-5-5-31 timings... It used to be 5-5-5-15

And it says is should be at 4-5-4-15..

This is the memory I have(4 sticks)

if bios settings are on auto, try and set using manual....?

Try to reset the CMOS. Mem86 test it. Then go manual and input the desired latencies.

What app is telling you 5-5-5-31, EVEREST used to tell me 5-5-5-2 when my timings were at 5-5-5-18, CPU-z would report it correctly. Now my timings are at 4-4-4-12 and both apps report the same results. EVEREST would give false readings for some reason!

You most likely need to increase the RAM voltage and possibly the NB voltage as since your running 4x1GB.

What hardware are you running?

I actually have been having similar problems with my rig. Was getting a bunch of BSOD's and ended up bringing everything back down to stock and even removing 2 of my 4GB. Then after a failed reboot I shut it right down and gave it a few minutes, turned it on and my memory also gave timings of 5-5-5-31. And that was on the initial BIOS screen. It stayed like that until I went back into the bios and set the timings manually. Since then it seems to have been good.

So once I get a chance, (maybe tonight) I will try with the 4GB again, and this time increase the voltage a bit to see if that helps. But as for the incorrect timings, once I but it back to manual it reports it fine.

4 sticks put a lot of stress on the NB - you have to adjust voltages (Vmch and Vram) accordingly.
