Well there are a fwe tweaks that you can make to fine tune your system i generally dont use them very often as if youve got optimised defaults loaded on a good mobo they are mostly done anyway just a few more risky or hazardous ones are left out.

No harm in trying though as long as you dont mess with the voltages, you can always reset the CMOS, the performance gain isnt huge but if you feel confident you can give it a try.

Means the board's been set up to set all that CAS Latency and stuff automatically. I really wouldn't argue with the board on this one, as its asked the memory what its optimal settings are and used them. They might not be the fastest but they're the ones that definitely work.

You may have to set a jumper on your motherboard in order to change those settings. Please refer to your motherboard manual or your manufacturers webiste for information.
