    So I Have followed your guide LSD and I have a few questions-

    There are 2 things I cannot match you on on memset-
    tREF & Performance level

    Peformance level is a 6 for you but 15 for me
    tREF is 3117 for you but is 3120T for me

    Also, I'm confused on the FSB setting- you either have 399 or 401, I'm currently set at 400.

    The driving strength- why is it at 1066 instead of auto?

    Last note- I cannot tell a difference between the two (default BIOS settings for the ram and the Specification settings) So which do you recommend? The 444-12 2v 400mhz or the 555-18 1.8v 480mhz? Which is better for the life of the ram etc.?

    Sorry I'm a complete noob to RAM settings-last questions I promise.

    Peformance level = Static tRead Value in BIOS, what have you set it for?

    I just got back from my BIOS. I set both channels to 8, so now it is showing up as 8 in memset

    Also I set my voltage to my Vcore to 1.2, but before with the auto setting it was showing 1.3. Is this ok? I guess since its running now...

    You must realise that timings are not fixed values they must be addjusted for different memory speeds, 5-5-5-18 @ 480MHz are the same as 4-4-4-12 @ 400 MHz (not exactly but BIOS rounds them up).
    With the XMP profile and DRA< Voltage you had set to auto I doubt DRAM Voltage was set to 1.8v, it was probably set to 2.0v. What you see in BIOS as default is not always the value aoolied, check BIOS HW Monitor or EasyTune monitor tab.

    There;s no questions limit, ask away.

    Oh. So timings aren't separate of themselves but are related to the FSB speed?

    I wouldn't set vcore below default VID, certainly not when overclocking. Is LLC (Load Line Calibration) enabled or disabled?

    Not directly to FSB speed, but memory clock (which is half of Memory Frequency shown in BIOS, that is rated DDR not real clock frequency)
    The timings you see in MemSet spd, standard or EPP, are actually given in time (nano seconds) and MemSet converts them to cycles for the different clock frequencies.

    Oh ok.

    Load-Line is disabled. I just bumped my Vcore up to 1.3v after reading your post- still displaying 1.25v in CPUID though....

    This is perfectly normal, under load it will get even lower.
    All this was taken into account when intel set 1.3v as default VID.
    The vcore in my sig is what CPU-Z shows under load, in BIOS it is set to 1.25v.

    You will need to run some stability tests to make sure your OC settings are stable. What kind of CPU cooling you have?

    Filling yor sugnature with your system specs, including a link to the ram specs may also be helpful.
