    I wanted to ask if anyone knows if i need to setup my RAM in the bios to the right settings for it to run at the correct speeds. The RAM ive got installed is the GeIL 512MB (2x256MB) PC3200 Value Dual Channel Kit CAS2.5, in the bios i have got the RAM setup as auto will this effect the proformance of it, if so can you tell me how to set it up correctly...

    Thanks in advance

    Best settings for Geil Value will be:

    CAS 2.5 (you can try 2, see if its stable, if its not put it back to 2.5)
    tRP 3
    tRCD 3
    tRAS 7

    Vdimm 2.7V

    Thanks for the reply, I tryed the settings that you recommended and my computer would not even bootup, just kept beeping without monitor turning on, the bios logo didint even come up.... i thought i had naffed me computer for a second then opened it up and saw the jumper next to the cmos, that brought it back to life, THANK GOD!!! :(

    I aint messing with anymore overclocking at the moment, my computer is fast enough for most games and it seems pointless trying to get more speed when i dont really need it. Plus chancing frying my parts ... haha
