    Theres some great guides on these forums which will help you a lot.But to make it easier for you id advise upgrading your memory, if money dosent allow this then do some extensive reading up on overclocking and give it a try.

    I thoguht id bring this one back.....i bought some corsair xms2 memory on waynes reccomendation of upgarding but as i dont earn alot of money i bought the slower timing 5-5-5-12 ram, however my ram isn't actually running at these latencies but slow, there running at 5-5-5-18-23 timings which seems a bit slow really.


    so how can i adjust these timings to the stock or faster? im upgrading to dual core very soon (tuesday) so could this maybe help solve this?

    also whilst anyones reading this how hard is it to change a motherboard?

    Hi i found out which to adjust to make them timings stock and its much faster that way. tried to change timings down to 4-4-4-12 but had the biggest scare as it wouldn't boot and even crashed in the bios!!! is there a safe way of finding the best timings you can get with ram? i dont what that experience again i must say!

    im not quite sure what that 23 figure is and what the 1t/2t means either.are they something that makes a big difference or should i just leave it?
