Windows 7: Work out RAM timings

Work out RAM timings

Hey peeps,

In a pickle here.

I cannot figure out, or find anything about, setting timings on RAM.

Now this is what OCZ say about mine - (OCZ DDR3 PC3-16000 Reaper Low-Voltage Triple Channel OCZ Technology)

But as you can see, thats to set speed at 2000mhz, i want to run at 1600mhz for the moment and those timings seem a bit loose for that.

SO..... What is the best way to work out, any eqautions or what not?

Any help greatly appreciated

Lucky

Hello Luckystar, I believe this is your ram?

What does the SPD tab on CPU-Z show for timings?

Like A Guy says, check the CPUZ SPD tab.

It will likely have the timings for 1600 MHz.

You should be able to get 8-8-8-24, or even 7-7-7-20 @ 1600mhz
