Windows 7: Help with Memtest-86 v4.10 & memory problem

Windows 7 Pro 64bit SP1

OCZ support had me set cas as 5-5-5-18 ? These settings were confirmed in Windows via Speccy and Cpu-z. Is this an issue ?

Set Processor - NB Voltage to {1.35 volts} [ +150 mv]
Set Memory Clock Mode to {Manual}
Set DRAM Timing Mode to {DCT0}
Set Memory OverVoltage to {2.1 - 2.2 volts}
Set Memory Timings to 5-5-5-18 (TCL-TRCD-TRP-TRAS)
Set Memory Hole Remapping to {Enabled]
Set DCT Unganged Mode to {Always}
Sorry...I know I typed this but must must have edited out by accident before posting. The specs/bios settings were supplied by OCZ support..specifically on the timing ( cas ? ) as follows:

Set Memory Timings to 5-5-5-18 (TCL-TRCD-TRP-TRAS) per OCZ support
Memtest reports the following on all tests: cas : 8-5-5-18

The TLC setting is different here. Is this an issue ?

I don't know all that much about memory - but I'd expect that if it's correct in your BIOS, then it's MemTest that's reading it wrong.

Take Windows out of the equation here - check in the BIOS to see what the settings actually are. If they're wrong in the BIOS, change them to the OCZ setting. If they're right in the BIOS, then Windows and Memtest is probably wrong.

Try the Windows memory test and the - Memory Diagnostic to double check things. V3.5 of the doesn't work with 4+ gB of RAM - use the version 3.4a instead (if you have 4 or more gB of RAM.

Memtest and missing (PCI) memory addresses
If I place a single 4GB stick in my machine and run memtest, I see it's testing only 3.7GB. I assume this is the PCI memory map taking 0.3GB. Does this mean I'm not actually testing all the memory or am I missing something?
