Hi, i recently built a computer for the first time and i dont seem to be having any problems with it yet (however i get the feelin that it should be runnin faster) and im wondering if someone could help me with my RAM. Im new to overclocking or anything like that so go easy. I have corsair dominator 8888 ram which is currently running at 800 mhz at 5-5-5-18 which i dont want, i would like it at 1111mhz at 4-4-4-12 as specified, but i dont know how to get this or how to enable the EPP function, i have looked everywhere for help but hav found nothing, if someone knows how to make the ram run at the correct speeds please let me know.

Ram timing is set in the BIOS. Most of the bios on motherboards for high end gaming computers have setting where you can change the timings. The cheaper motherboards do NOT have these settings so you can't change them. Quite a few enthusist motherboards have utilities that you can use so you don't need to get into the BIOS. If you can change the timing you also may have to up the voltage for the ram slightly to keep the memory stable.

i have an evga 680i motherboard, it has an ntune utility where i can configure timings, adjust fsb etc. in the bios it has options to enable sli memory, i tried it at cpuocmax and it got me the perfect settings, however the fsb was increased and the cpu was from 2.93 to 3.05. i rebooted the computer and it came up with an error sayin it was in safe mode and i had to change the settings back default to boot my computer again. it automatically adjust voltages to cater for the speeds. i have never overclocked before so i dnt want to risk anything. wat i want to know is how to overclock the ram to get it stable.

It may be that you cannot change the ram that much. Heres some articles.

So, read up and learn what you can do. I would test every configuration you make with Memtest86 before trying out on the computer. You can use a bootable CD for this.
