View Full Version : DRAM Setup - Does this look right?

Hey Hey,

First build trying to get all the glitches out

Running with
Intel i7-4770K
Maximus VII Formula
G.Skill F3-2400C10D-16GTX
No GPU as of Yet,

Have some issue with my RAM Tweak in Bios, and the system has become unstable a few times, looking for a good timing setup
Current timing is as follows based of forums on the web:

2400Mhz, 10-12-12-31-2
trrd - 8
ref - 314
RI - 7936
tWR - 27 (this may need to be 17)
tRTP - 10
tFAW - 26
tCKR - 4
tWCL 8
2 channel 8gig sticks,
Supply voltage set to 1.65v

XMP is on, my two DRAM options are:
Profile. 1 2401Mhz,
Profile. 2 2399 Mhz
Was running on Profile 1, up until today when it would not boot up and has become unstable, seems stable on profile 2.
AI3 seem to show the DRAM consistently running at 2391.5Mhz while running in my OS.

Since am new to really bad a$$ computing, i was wondering - What is a good score on Mem Tweakit? mine is currently coming up as 38629, i tried to regerister it online but it keep coming up with a 532462766 error but that for another day.

any help would be great thanks.
