    Posted updated BIOS settings on page 3!!

    Shall I revert to optimized or continue?

    bottom line is, you didn't know what he wanted to do in the first place.

    Now we do :D Not really OCing my memory, just making it work correctly ^__^

    Then we can start PCing my CPU (Thats what I mainly want)

    All settled guys? GROUP HUUUG

    @Chike, you gotta be more through man LOL A little vague. So disable Turbo for Performance Enhance...but what about the BIOS setting creamsoda posted? Do I still fill in those?

    When you done some stress to see that it;s stable.

    As for the need for speed, you may try copy a tamplate, it may work or not after poking around, with the likely chance you could have done better, or you can do it yourself, in steps, smaller or bigger and get the best from your computer like you said.
    The great added value that will come with it is knowledge (that as we know is power)

    BTW post your settings and captures of easytune voltages and memset main screen.

    ok first of all.. you need to leave your standard timings for the RAM on AUTO

    even if it sets the timings to 5-5-5-15, it don't matter for now as long as it's stable.

    Also, why did you change your DRAM voltage? You probably set that too high. Change it back to AUTO or 1.8-1.9V

    If you set the DRAM voltage too high, it will be very unstable.

    Oh, all I changed was the Latency timing for the Memory...everything else I left default from the default bios settings.

    As for copying others templates...a little risky though hahah

    You obviously didn't set the same exact settings that I told you in my template. You listened to Chike and changed your timings to 4-4-4-12, no wonder your **** was so unstable & lagging/crashing.

    Incase you haven't noticed, Chike is running a P43 board & E7xxx CPU.. far from what WE have.

    It's written on your DRAM EPP#1 profile, G.Skill guarantee it works at 4-4-4-12 at 2.0-2.1v, it is now below it's specs, if it works fine if not raise to 2.
    Wouldn't dare tell you to set your DRAM voltage if I didn't knew it's spec.

    Run some prime or orthos, maybe LinX (watch the temps) if it fail you can try DRAM votage 2.0-2.1 if that doesn't help than the MCH Core 1.2-1.26v.
