Ok! I was hoping for that picture to have the memory speed in it but we'll get that while testing stability.
So your memory is the G-Skill Ripjaw F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL Model
. On the specification tab of the vendors site they say your timings are 9-9-9-24-2N. If we look at the info from Rimmer's Understanding, Identifying and Upgrading the RAM in your PC
and match up our numbers we get this.
The first number (9) is CL, the CAS Latency.
The second number (9) is TRCD, the RAS to CAS delay.
The third number (9) is TRP, the RAS Precharge delay.
The fourth number (24) is TRAS, the Active to Precharge delay.
The last figure (2N) is the Command Rate.
Ok, on to the settings part!Please note: Read this entire post before making any changes! Changing these settings has the potential to be dangerous. Consider these modifications to be "unstable" until tested with the diagnostic tool listed at the end of the post. I encourage you to research this topic yourself to verify that I am not leading you astray, or making any mistakes!Only change the settings directed!
- Go to the "DRAM Timing Configuration" page in your BIOS.
- Change the setting "DRAM CAS# Latency" from [Auto] to 9.
- Change the setting "DRAM RAS# to CAS# Delay" from [Auto] to 9.
- Change the setting "DRAM RAS# PRE Time" from [Auto] to 9.
- Change the setting "DRAM RAS# ACT Time" from [Auto] to 24.
- Change the setting "DRAM Command Rate" from [Auto] to 2N. (If 2N is not available then leave it as it is.)
After changing only those settings mentioned
double check that the settings changed are set to the settings specified, and that all other settings are on [Auto]. Once you have verified all the settings on the "DRAM Timing Configuration" page are correct exit the BIOS saving changes
After saving the changes do not boot into Windows! Immediately test your memory following Billy O'Neal's Tutorial "How to Test your RAM"
. While the diagnostic tool is running take a picture of the screen (make sure that all of the information can be clearly viewed). Be sure to have the test run at least 1 full time before booting into Windows. I encourage you to leave the diagnostic tool running overnight if possible, the tool will run until the machine is restarted.
Keep me updated with your progress! Good luck!If there is anything that you do not understand completely in this post then let me know before you take any of the steps outlined in the post!
