Ok, I have this ram right here:
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820145575
it says that its timings are suposed to be 2-3-3-6.
But, it isn't set to that in my bios.
my BIOS says:
Tcl: 3, Trcd: 3, Tras: 8, Trp:3

CPU-Z says:
CAS# Latency 3.0
RAS# to CAS# 3
RAS# Precharge 3
Tras 8

All I'm wondering is in my timings, 2-3-3-6 what is the 6?
Is it Tras or Trp? or what?

I just want my ram to run at what its suposed to, and I know its not running to its value right now.

Thanks for any help.

yes setting them manually is the right way to go...then benchmark the memory...try lots of settings and benchmark them ...keep logs for comparison...sometimes looseing them will actually show a speed increase...its time consuming and the results are only good for the computer your doing it on...if there is a pattern I haven't seen one yet

There was also an issue with late series motherboards that caused memory to downclock and change timings when you had 4 sticks in the machine. It's generally solved by a BIOS update.
