    Default GA EP45C DS3R problem with Corsair ddr3 2x2gb 1600 mhz

    Hi, I have a problem with my computer and searched alot for my problem.

    The problem is that my computer randomly freezes totally and I have to restart manually. I think it is my memories that don't are right timed with my motherboard.
    Can someone please help me with this settings in bios?

    Cpu : Intel E8400 3.0 ghz
    Memory : Corsair ddr3 1600 mhz cl9 2x2gb
    hdd: seagate baracuda 500 gb sata
    motherboard : Gigabyte EP 45C DS3r
    gfx : XFX 9800 GTX+ 775mhz 512mb
    os : vista 64 bit swedish

    I need help with right timings, voltage and the "speed", in my bios it says the memory only runs in 1066 mhz when it's supposed to be runned in 1600 mhz. HELP!

    What settings are you using now? Please use one of the templates you find in many threads here.

    You also can't run the the RAM at 1600MHz without overclocking the CPU's FSB from 333 to 400 as the highest RAM multiplier is 4.0 (so with 400 FSB x4 you can get those 1600MHz)

    Also download Memset from tweakers.fr please and post a screenshot of that. It will show us your actual RAM timings in Windows.

    Ok I have to clock for 1600mhz :(, but can I run the memory in 1066 and don't get the f0kking freezes with some easy settings? I don't care if I'm running the memory in 1066 or 1600. I'll be happy just to get my computer working properly without system freezes

    Ok man, here is what you should use for that memory. With the CPU at stock you can only run 1333Mhz ram speed

    MB Intelligent Tweaker(M.I.T.)
    Robust Graphics Booster ...............:auto or fast
    CPU Clock Ratio ..........................:9x
    Fine CPU Clock Ratio.....................:.0

    Advanced Clock Control [Press Enter]
    CPU Clock Drive...........................: <<< 800 (See below note)
    PCI Express Clock Drive.................: <<< 900 (If you see 700/700 for these, please load optimized defaults and then save/apply and reboot BACK to the BIOS. You MUST go back to the BIOS first before windows so you can set your SATA/Disk settings again, DO NOT FORGET!!!!)

    CPU Clock Skew (ps)....................: <<<
    MCH Clock Skew (ps)...................: <<


    DRAM Performance Control

    tRCD .........................................9
    tRP'...........................................9

    You can later use 777-20 or 888-20 above if you plan to stay at this ram speed, because you are underclocking your ram so 999-24 would not be needed

    I do not use messengers as they distract me

    As for those two settings you mention, You should leave them in Auto

    okey, Thanks again very much for the help! Do you think my problem is solved now? :D I've changed everything as you said and it works nice

    Do you think I can lower my timings to 7-7-7-20 And will this give MORE performance or is it just not worth it?

    Well your ram is 999-24 @ 1600 right? If so, then ya you can likely use 777-20 at 1333Mhz, maybe even lower

    And yes, it would be worth doing it for sure

    Thanks alot for the help LSdmeasap!! but I had one last question.
    I wonder why some programs says that my memory only gets 1.5Volt and the other program says 1.79V
