Hi everyone. OK, I know quite a bit about PC hardware, including programming tiny mundane crap as arcane as registers in the Northbridge and peripheral chips and at one point I could name all the pin signals on the old Pentium Pro. So yes I am a dork. But, One thing I never really got is RAM timings. I understand theres a front porch and back porch, and what all the terms mean, RAS-to-CAS delay, etc etc. What I cannot find for the life of me is what these are supposed to be set to in my current machine. I have a Shuttle SX38P2 with an X38, and 4x1 GB of Corsair XMS PC6400. I believe it is supposed to be set to "4-4-4-12" but what does each number refer to? The four numbers I know about are tRcd, tRp, tRAS, and tCAS. I'm assuming that 4-4-4-12 means CAS4, tRcd=4, tRp=4, and tRAS is 12. Is this correct? Also, ram is listed as 2.1v but the x38 defaults it to 1.8v. Should I manually set this? Yes I know there are like 100 threads about this already but none of them confirm this information for me to any degree. Help!?!?!
