My computer restarts itself when playing high intensity games or having multiple programs running at the same time. I have checked a bunch of issues and pretty much am left with a problem with the ram.
This depends on the specifications of the RAM (for the different default timings) - and it depends on the motherboard having the necessary settings in the BIOS to change them to be the same.
Finally, the best test of this is you - How does the computer work? Does it seem to work properly and be fast enough for the amount of RAM you have installed? If so, and you're not getting errors, I'd just leave it be!
Here's some information on RAM timings: http://www.pcguide.com/ref/ram/timing.htm (It'll take several pages to get into the "meat" of the issue)
This one's a little more straightforward: http://www.andrew.cmu.edu/user/fma/P4tweakRAM2.htm
