Windows 7: Windows 7 random freezes: memory timings

Windows 7 random freezes: memory timings

Hey guys,

I've been having a very annoying problem lately: my computer keeps on freezing, very randomly (after taking back from sleep mode, when just on the internet, when just writing something in word, really randomly!). So I read somewhere that the default BIOS settings for some memory do not produce a stable computer. They said that you had to check the QVL list from Asus to find the right timings and speed, but there is no Patriot memory on the Asus QVL list, so I was wondering if anyone knows which timings I should set?? The memory is ddr3 12800 with default timings of 9-9-9-24 (but I've tried this already, didn't work.. Sometimes you have to set the timings lower than the default for your RAm Asus recommends for for example OCZ memory which is on the QVL list).

Thanks for reading through all this..

Cheers,

Amplid

Is the patriot memory compatible with the mobo? Have you checked?

Memory Timings?
I've never really checked to see where the memory timings are displayed in my BIOS/CPU-Z, I changed some "memory timings" options in my BIOS to"5, 5, 5, 15, and Auto, and now CPU-Z is showing this under memory: Am I correct in assuming that those are the "5-5-5-15" values that are advertised...
