Windows 7: Question about RAM timings

Question about RAM timings

So I had to replace one of my RAM sticks because I had a faulty one causing BSODs. Upon changing them I'm noticing the numbers in tRC are different in the new stick compared to the three others. I'm wondering if this may be a possible reason I have been experiencing random restarts while playing CSGO. Here is pictures of CPU-Z showing the differences in the tRC. I've looked through the MSI bios but can't seem to find where to change them.

To me it appears to be a pretty significant gap in some numbers between the the slots. Any help is appreciated.

It is always best to replace all ram sticks.

If you look at the part numbers for the ram you will see they are not the same ram. Therefor you have missed matched ram.

I do agree with Nigel.
I would recommend buying a matched set of ram modules.

I have to agree with rich and Layback Bear. Replacing all the RAM modules is your best move.

If you can't do that, then at least make sure that the RAM is running on the loosest timings possible. That means the timing for your slowest RAM sticks is the one to use. I also would not use the XMP profiles while you have mismatched RAM. That might cause instability.

Rodeo, you should replace the bad module with the same exact brand and speed as the others.

If you have a matched set of 4, Corsair will replace any faulty modules, free of charge.

Just start an RMA with Corsair, you have nothing to loose.

What set do you have, post a link if possible.
