    Default EX38-DS4 - OCZ Titanium 1150MHz - Can't set it right!

    Hi all.

    I have a new memory that I want to set it right and I can't seem to understand the Gigabyte x38-ds4 bios.

    This is what I have: OCZ Titanium DDR2 2X2GB @ 2.15v
    CAS/RAS: 5 5 5 18

    Intel E8500 @ 3.16Ghz (not OC).
    Multiplier: 9.5 (Stock)
    Bus Speed: 333.3Mhz (default)
    Rated FSB: 1333.3MHz (default)

    MB:


    Mem:


    and the BIOS (not my settings):


    I don't understand this MCH strapping.

    My mem can work at 1150MHZ but even at 1111MHZ it is not stable. I managed to play and work with the computer but today the OS didn't load and I guess it's because of the mem. So I messed up with this MCH thing to get 3.33C which gives me 1066MHZ which is also fine by me but I don't believe that my system is stable...

    How should I set the speed correctly? Can it get to 1200 or to 1150 as OCZ states?

    I have C1E and EIST enabled.

    Thanks!

    Disable C1E and EIST for sure at 500+ FSB


    You are also going to have to use 555-15 or 555-18 for timings, 444-12 is NOT going to work anywhere near 1000Mhz

    I suggest you try the B and or D multipliers, at 500+ FSB your NB is not going to like A or C multi's most likely

    You will need to set your own ram voltage to spec, and set MCH to 1.20-1.26 likely as well.

    I am confused by your post so I will wait on your response before advising with full settings. I am confused because you say no OC / Stock CPU, but you are showing 500+ FSB in your BIOS.

    If you are just wanting to use 333 FSB, you will need to make the above mentioned changes and then set Memory Multiplier to 3.33D for 1108Mhz. To get higher than that you will need to adjust your CPU

    The numbers don't add up. What FSB do you use with the 3.33C multiplier? 3.33 x 333 = 1109 not 1066.
    Please post the settings you try and fail using the template in this post. Ignore the values in it, just replace them with your own settings and post them back.
    Having your system specs including memory part number in your signature is also helpful.

    Hi thanks for the reply but you got it wrong. The BIOS screenshot is not mine, I just posted it as reference. My settings are described above the screenshots.

    Aha so you managed to confuse us... one brownie point for you.
    So it must have been 3.20B multiplier you were using.

    EDIT: BTW In the link you posted to the ram voltage spec is 2.2v with 2.25v EVP, what's on the sticker?

    I'm sorry for the confusion, my settings are stated above the screenshots, the BIOS screenshot is just for reference and I found it on google.

    Currently I'm operating on the following settings:
    E8500
    Core Speed: 3.16GHz
    Multiplier: 9.5
    Bus Speed: 333MHz
    Rated FSB: 1333MHz

    Dual 2X2GB OCZ Titanium DDR2 1150MHZ
    DC mode: Symmetric
    DRAM: 533.3MHz
    FSB:DRAM: 5:8
    CAS/RAS: 5 5 5 18
    tRFC: 72
    CR: 2T

    Voltages etc.? Please use the template for the full settings.

    Ok, then!

    Please try the suggestions I made concerning voltages and your memory multiplier for 333 FSB using 3.33D memory multiplier and then and you should be good to go.

    If not, you will need to provide us with your full exact settings using a template from the link in my signature

    Chike: On my mem it says 2.2volt.

    Lsdmeasap: We have a problem :)

    I don't have 3.33D I only have 3.20B (the closest setting) and currently running at 1066MHZ instead of 1150MHZ or OC to 1200MHz.

    In addition, I don't know where is the MCH voltage reading in order to know how much should I set it to.

    Strange, did it set it to 2.2v by itself? Could you post MemSet spd(click spd) window screen capture?
    Unfortunately the 3.2 multiplier is the highest for DDR2 for FSB333, so to run it as DDR-1150 you'd have to overclock it to FSB rate that will allow with a compatible multiplier to run it at 1150.
    Alternatively you can run it at lower speed with tighter timings, as DDR-920 for example it should be able to run with 4-4-4-15 timings without a problem.
    A moderate overclock with FSB360 with 3.2 multiplier is another option, leaving CPU on 3GHz with 8.5 CPU Ratio or overclock it too to 3.4GHz with 9.5 CPU Ratio
