That memory calls for 1.9v I would change that first and see what it does to the timings

Yes it will do that especially if the memory is not getting enough volts which at 1.55v it is not, 1.9v should give you the correct timing or at least a lot closer than what you have

It should accept at least that setting since it is 1600MHz memory, so you can try it, what is it saying the MHz is now

ok, i changed the freq. to 1333mhz and it wouldn't post. i'll probably have to adjust the timings on it in order to get 1333. any thoughts? btw, thanks for the advice so far! :notworthy

You might try kicking the voltage up and see if it posts
