    tRD 6 or even 5 may be possible, for the gains run benchmarks.
    Is there a reason MCH/DRAM Ref set manually?
    MCH Reference is at default anyway so realy no reason not to leave it on auto.

    The only reason I was setting things manually was cos I was using someone else`s template to get me going again after all the blue screens i was getting. I`ve just been concentrating on lowering the advance memory timings and running Memtest86+ to make sure things are ok. I`ll go back into my BIOS and put them on auto, also when I`ve got my timings right I`ll lower my DRAM voltage a little at a time, it`s rated at 2.0 - 2.1v.
    I`ve been making small gains each time with Maxx Pi so at least I`m going in the right direction.

    Memtest86+ is not sufficient, run 8+ hours Prime95/Orthos blend to be sure, and 5-10 runs of IBT/LinX if your temperatures allow it.
    tRFC is a bit tight, if increasing it don't hurt performance set it 52-56.

    I ran Intel Burn test on standard for 10 runs and passed and then ran it on high for 5 runs and passed. I ran Prime 95 for 7 hours on blend and passed and ran Memtest 86+ test No2 for fifteen minutes without errors and then ran test No5 for an hour and fifteen with no errors. I know I need to run some tests for 24 hours and will do when I have the time but this will do for a start.
    Incedently all the settings in the advanced memory timings are set at whats in the EPP which is why tRFC is set at 48, seems to work ok though ;-)

    tRFC is 48 in the EPP? I find it hard to believe, not for the 533MHz profile.
    If it works it works, but if there's no gain setting it so low I'd set it up to the point it start effecting performance.

    Setting it to 52 does affect performance but only by the smallest margins so I`ll take your advice and raise it.

    tRC is not tRFC (missing F) lol check ur EPP with MemSet or in CPU-Z text dump.
