OCZ 2GB (2x1GB) PC2-8500C5 1066MHz SLI-Ready Editi

  cortez© 20:35 08 Aug 2008


I have just bought some OCZ 2GB (2x1GB) PC2-8500C5 1066MHz SLI-Ready Edition Dual Channel DDR2 RAM to put into my Abit IP35Pro mobo with a Quad 2 Core CPU.

CPUz reports my memory as it being PC2-5300 (333MHz). Exactly what bios settings do i need to alter to get my RAM running at the correct speed.

Many Thanks

Thanks for replies.

I actually have 4 x1 1GB sticks of these. I'll try your settings though.

update, set voltage to auto or 2.1 if it's stable, if this knocks the timings out enable sli memory to auto or on.
from ocz:
If you have purchased or received one of the above mentioned kits{PC2-8500 / PC2-9200 / PC2-9600 Memory Kits} since Jan. 1, 2008, check your ram voltage. There is no need to always run 2.3V on these kits, some kits will run just fine at 2.0 - 2.1V at their rated speed, maybe even less.

If you are currently running 2.3V through your ram, please test at lower voltages for stability. We have made a revision to the modules and high voltage is no longer necessary and could be detrimental to the health of the dimms.

Thank you.
