    Default OCZ RAM Timing

    I have read countless tutorials on how to set RAM timings in the P6T BIOS but I cannot do it myself. My RAM is OCZ3G1600LV6GK. The ASUS memory QVL says to set it "8-8-8(1066-7-7-7-20)" And also "8-8-8(1066-7-7-7-16)" So how do I do this?

    QVL (qualified vendor list) don't tell your RAM specs. It's a compatibility list, use CPU-Z to check your RAM specs.

    Go into DRAM Timing Control menu to do the changing.

    I believe your RAM timing is 8-8-8-24. It's not as you listed above.

    that's untrue, if you set it at AUTO then then bios will run your RAM at stock timing, which you should keep it at unless you are really OC it then you loosing up its timing.

    For example; if you crank up its Freq to 1800mhz or so then you need to keep the timing at 9-9-9 or so but if you run it less than 1600mhz then you can tighten the timing to 7-7-7.
    You have to spend sometimes to figure it out which setting give you the stability. RAM Ocing is a little nuance to do than with CPU, if you are not experience then it will take longer time to get it stable.

    This is the reason we first keep the memory run at stock, get the CPU rock solid first then work on Ocing the memory later. This will take the CPU unstabiity out of the equation when you working with memory.

    Thanks for your replies Deton. I'll never learn if I don't try this out.
