good day to all! i think my tech issues will come to an end and i thank guskz for his valuable insights.
i would like to ask you guys to help me out. there seems to be a compatiblity issue between my msi k8ngm-v and kingston ddr 400 512mb and this is why i experience crashes once in a while. however, there is still hope if i can tweak the ram and the problem is i am not knwoledgable about ram timings at all. i cam currently using a kingston ddr400 and its description reads 512MB 400MHz DDR Non-ECC CL3 (3-3-3) DIMM. how do i tweak this in the bios. my msi board has the AMI bios. i noticed in the menu the following:
memclock mode (auto/limit)
mct timing mode (auto/manual)
user config mode (auto/manual)
read preamble [9.5 ns]
asyc latency [11.0 ns]
CMD-ADDR timing mode [2t]
bank interleaving (auto)
burst length (4 beats)
hardware memory hole (disabled)
Aslo i saw in the "Onchip VGA Frame Buffer Size" reads 64mb. what happens if i change this to 128 or 32? which is better for performance?
now, going back to my question again. from these settings, how can i tweak my ram settings to optimum perfomance? i was able to adjust the voltage but what should i do with the timing, etc. thanks a lot for the help!!!
