Yep, read the thread carefully and see second to last post. 7,7,7,20 and the rest auto. If you're unsure or dont want to risk it. Best thing is to take in a shop and do it with them...know you might not want to hear that but it is very difficult to give you warranty kind of help from this distance....

My Patriot ram has specs like this:

DDR2 800MHz
5-5-5-12
1.9v

each stick is 2GB and i have four of them.

i understand that its hard to provide help from a distance but this is new turf for me. i dont know if some settings can break the ram or other parts. what would you recommend to change to get the ram working.

I just set my timings from 5-5-5-12, to 5-5-5-15. I was borrowing my brother ram a while ago and it had those timings. His ram didn't cause problems so I figure I will see if the same timings will work for me. I didn't change and voltage. I'm running prime95 to see if my PC still locks up.

Those last setting failed to fix the problem. I'm trying 7-7-7-20 now. The voltage is 1.99.

7-7-7-20 with voltage of 1.99 was also unsuccessful.

I have an idea. Tomorrow I will set the timings and voltage to match my backup ram and see if that works. Although the back up ram is single channel and my patriot ram is duel. I don't know if that makes a difference with how I should set the timings but I give it a try.

5-5-5-31 is the timing of my back up ram, when I set my patriot ram to those timi g it seams to be stable. However, it was very much slower lol. I took a look at my brother's ram spec and it turns out I was wrong about his timings. His are 5-5-5-18 @ 2.1v. If my timing on my patriot is default set to 5-5-5-12 @ 1.9v, wouldnt it make sense to up the voltage to 2.1 or more? I'm gonna set my ram timings to 5-5-5-18 @2.1v and see what happens.

I talked to ASUS and they said that the ram IS compatible with my mobi. I also talked to my computer repair guy and he said that it might be that the ram is getting to hot. A new case might be a good idea.

I'm back to 5-5-5-12 and I think I found a voltage that is stable, 2.110. I haven't locked up. I'm gonna let memtest86 run all night to check the ram after I messed with the voltages. It appears that the ram just needed some more juice lol. I'll post tomorrow.
