If you have any reservations about adjusting timings in the BIOS then, as I said, don't attempt it. I've looked up the manual for your motherboard and while it does offer the option to adjust your DRAM settings I would advise reading up on the subject first.
The following links will help you first to understand memory timings, and what all the numbers mean: A Shortcut to Understanding Memory Timings - The Essential Guide To PC Memory | Roundup | PCMag.com Understanding RAM Timings | Hardware Secrets
While this link has a lot of the above information broken down in a far more readable way: Info: Ram Timings For Dummies.

This is not going to be something you'll be able to look at straight away but it something that you will have to read up on for a couple of days, taking time to fully digest it before trying to change any settings. If you feel too daunted to even give it a try, don't worry! The majority of system owners, even advanced ones, don't bother with messing with memory timings unless they need to fix something.
A slightly easier alternative you could try to fix your Hypertransport problem would be to step down the HT Link Speed, also in the BIOS. If you press DEL
(the true delete key, not the same as the backspace) while the system is booting then you will enter into your BIOS. From here, enter into Cell Menu
Toward the bottom of this new screen you'll see HT Link Speed
, and setting this to Manual
by pressing the + or -
key will allow you to change the number. I don't know what it will say to begin with (it may be for example something like 1800), but you are best off only reducing it by one button press, again with + / -.
If this doesn't work I have seen reference to adjusting the HT voltage, but unfortunately this isn't supported with your board, and so we might then have to enter the rocky road of BIOS updating.
