I recently installed new ram: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231209

 

The ram is rated for 4-4-4-12, but when I installed it, the software 'Speccy' shows that it is actually running at 5-5-5-15.

 

I'm wondering why it is running at this higher rate, and how to make it run at the rated spec instead. Thanks for any help!

Go to BIOS and adjust memory timings.

Is there an official guide to doing so? I've never adjusted memory timings in the BIOS, so I don't want to just go in there and guess.

It just depends on what BIOS and what motherboard, so there is no official guide on how to adjust on that motherboard. Motherboard manual may help.

 

Also speed difference between specified timings and current timings is negligible.

OK, I will look for the motherboard manual. I agree, the timings are pretty close to the rated spec either way.
