I have just rebuilt my PC and was wondering if you can help me out for the initial bios set up. PC has posted and have run Memtest86. No propblems so far. I will be loading Vista 64Bit SP-1 later in the week Here are the System Specs.. I would like to possible overclock later on after I have a stable 64 bit SP-1 system.

    I exported the Template to excel and made my changes, when I paste it back in the message body it says that it is 49252 characters long and must be shortened to 10000. I have no clue about that.

    Thanks again, Riley810

    Thank You LS, I will report back on my progress. One quick question, Should I make limited number of bios changes then save, or just change all at one time.

    Thanks Again, Riley810

    Change Voltages, and Static Tread to high and then MCH and reboot to change the rest.

    Ohh, and Set performance enhance to standard before you change MCH and static tread as well. Most of the time you can do all changes at once, but since you do not have MCH latch set already you may have to do a few with it then the rest... Maybe not

    F11 is save on the MAIN page of the BIOS and F12 is load, just incase you want to save a few profiles

    Hi LS, I made all the changes that you suggested. But I am not sure about this screen, Channel A & B. Please look at the pic, zero values for some??

    Static tRead Value.........................: 6 10 This box is red color
    tRD Phase0 Adjustment...................: 0 Auto< Leave for all below as well
    tRD Phase1 Adjustment...................: 0 Auto
    tRD Phase2 Adjustment .................: 0 Auto
    tRD Phase3 Adjustment..................: 0 Auto

    0 numbers, that can't be good?

    Not sure I check all the settings, thanks.

    Yes, those should be all left in Auto. They are only for super fine tunning

    What do you mean by "Red Color" Can you post a pic? And that does not have to be 10 either, you can likely lower it I just gave you those timings (All of them) as ranges with highest being stable for sure likely and lower being best performance. And you can likely lower all of them just test as you go. 7-8 for static tread would be best.
