Dell Workstation_Ram Memory_Set proper timings

This is a follow up question from this one:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Hardware/Components/Memory/Q_26010032.html

Nobus and Callandor suggested me to " look for the proper timings, and voltage for them, and set them accordingly."  ,  "  I agree with nobus that 4 modules may be causing signal degradation; you can compensate by relaxing the memory timings in the BIOS, but you would have to experiment to find the best settings. " ....

So, i dont know how to do this, and if this will solve my problem, can someonte help me with these? Nobus? Callandor?  

I went onto BIOS setup, (F2, F12 ... i dont remember) , and there was NO option to do this, the only thing on Memory is MEMORY INFORMATION, nothing that i can change...  I guess DELL locks this features... Can there be a workaround for this??

thanks

if the bios does not provide options to change Ram timings - you can't;    sorry

Yes, I agree, if Dell doesn't provide the ability to change memory timings, you can't do anything but use fewer RAM modules.  The timings have to be set at hardware initialization, so that means in the BIOS.

Thank you guys, you have been very helpful in this and the other questions.

By the way, i have tried using fewer Ram modules (I tried 4 and also 2) but always i have the bad results with Memory Diagnostics... The only time i get no erros with Dell Diagnostics is when i use 1 Module... but i can not work with only 1 module because of my heavy 3D applications).

note that you may have  one or more bad rram slots - the only option then is to install the max allowed sized sticks
