Dell Optiplex 980 SFF
Intel core 2 duo 660 3.3, 64bit
BIOS version A 16 (latest) and reset defaults.
W7 pro

I bought this Optiplex refurb on ebay and it works pretty good with 4 gigs of DDR3-12800 ram. After removing the old memory I installed 8gb Patriot Signature series (2x4)and it works better and shaved a few seconds off boot time. Now I need to set the timing but I cannot find the settings.

I've set the timing on other computers (mostly with Asus motherboards). I've searched the BIOS over and over and Googled everything I could think of but nobody ever mentions where the settings can be located. I've checked the Dell tech and user manuals until I have sensory overload but still no luck.

Since this was a business computer could they have eliminated the ability to tamper with the memory settings?

Anyway, if someone would be kind enough to just steer me in the right direction so I can ascertain if they actually exist I would be most appreciative.

In Dell BIOSs there isn't a way to set your own timings. You are stuck with what the BIOS sees to be the best option.
