    Default How to get proper ram timings from within windows 7 - X58a UD3R rev2 issues

    Ok, I have Patriot ram that is DDR3 2000mhz, but I am only running it @ 1600mhz. I have manually set the timings in the bios @ 7 7 7 20 1T. Now, when I am in win7, both CPU-Z and Everest Ultimate are giving me two different readings as to what the current ram timings are? CPU-Z shows 6 7 7 20 1T and Everest shows 9 7 7 20 1T? What the heck is going on?
    GA-X58A-UD3R rev.2, 6GB 2000Mhz Patriot ram, MSI 5870 eyefinity 6, 930 @ 4.3 so far 1.28v water cooled

    EVGA 750i FTW, E8400 @ 4.45 1.35v on water, 4GB 800Mhz Patriot ram, EVGA 260GTX c216

    Everest and CPU-z will show you the actual set/in-use timings, you just need to look at the right place.

    In CPU-z the actual timings being used are shown in the "Memory" Tab.

    In Everest the actual timings in use are in "Motherboard > Chipset > IMC"

    Both shown here so you can see what I mean in Everest.



    You can also use CPU-Tweaker as well if you want, but the above apps you mentioned will show you correctly too.

    I realize that both Everest(AIDA 64) and CPU-Z will show you memory timings. The issue I am having is both report different values! Your post was not helpful at all. Here is what I am seeing:

    Maybe I will try the gigabyte easy tune to see what it shows. I am ready to give up though! This is just stupid already!

    +1. It does show the correct 7 7 7 20 1T as I manually set it to, but I was hoping there was a way to read it correctly in Windows. Oh well, it doesn't matter that much.

    Even back in DDR2 days, some timings were displayed offset, especially in Memset. The X58 version of that is CPU tweaker. Just remember the difference between what's in bios, and what you're reading, and that the difference stays the same. Then u can use CPU tweaker to play with ram timings. Better to set them in bios though.
