    Default HELP what's wrong with this ram?

    Hi there,

    I bought a ddr2-800 pc6400 2x2GB kit from AData Vitesta G Series and mount them into my EP35C-DS3R motherboard, the timings of the manufacturer are 5-5-5-12 1.9-2.1V.
    I didn't make any changes to BIOS and i run the cpuz just to get: 400Mhz 5-5-5-18 1.8v (maximum rate).

    What's the wrong here, is it the sticks incompatible or should i make some adjustments in BIOS?

    Could some one help me please with the BIOS adjustments since i'm newbie?
    In first place i wanted to run the memory at 4-4-4-12. Is that possible or just dreamin?

    Thanks in advance...

    Probably nothing wrong with the RAM. Your bios has set it to a standard setting and you will have to manually adjust it to the proper ones. The 400mhz is prolly correct as the reallity is 400mhz x 2 and your reading does not include the muliplier. I'll leave someone else to point you in the right direction to adjust your bios as I do not have your board .... or you could check out the manual..... .

    Thanks PrairieDawg,

    I was ready to RMA the RAM, i guess i have to find the right settings. To be honest i bought that RAM but i'm not sure for it's reliability. I was between Geil Black Dragon 2x2gb KIT and the above. The factor that Geil was w/o heat seankers was a negative since the price was the same.

    If someone else (like you said) can post some settings for my mobo i will be greatful.

    Thanks again...
