DRAM Timing Control
Posted on 2004-11-30
I have had this issue before, and I would like to attempt the same solution again, but I need help with the settings.
I worked with a level 3 techie from mushkin, and he helped me determine the proper settings in this part of the BIOS and it fixed my problem. I, however, was never told what the options meant, and thus cannot figure it out for myself. In my opinion, the auto timing for DRAM sucks on most BIOSes, and I prefer if it is manually set.
I will give you the specs, and options in the DRAM Timing Control:
The processor is a Pentium 4 - 2.8ghz
The BIOS is a Pheonix-Award Workstation BIOS
The RAM is one DIMM of 512MB DDR PC3200
The Power Supply is a 420W ATX
The options in the BIOS are as follows:
DRAM Timing Control - (By SPD, Manual)
DRAM CAS Latency - (2T, 2.5T, 3T)
RAS Active Time(tRAS) - (6T, 7T, 5T, 4T, 8T, 9T)
RAS Precharge Time(tRP) - (3T, 2T, 4T, 5T)
RAS to CAS Delay(tRCD) - (3T, 2T, 4T, 5T)
DRAM Addr/Cmd Rate - (Auto, 1T, 2T)
I would appreciate any help in getting the right settings here... if you need more info, please let me know...
