How to set memory timings?
This is the memory configuration screen for my mobo. I can't figure out how to set the memory timings to 7-7-7-21.
I am trying to upgrade my memory with G.Skill F3-10666CL7D-8GBRH. Tried many different combos, but only the original sticks will boot.
I thought if I manually set the timings with the old sticks, then shut down and rebooted with the new I could get it going, but it won't work.
I have cleared the CMOS.Asus M4A785TD-V EDO, Phenom II X4 945 Deneb 3.0GHz 4 Gig DDR3 1333 Win7 64 Home

I found some information on which settings I needed:
still will not post.
I initially bought 16 gig of DDR3-1666 which did the same thing (four sticks of 4gig). Returned those and bought DDR3-1333. Set the clock speed to 667 and the timings to 7-7-7-21. My system posted with the original four gig, even though the timings were wrong. I put in the new sticks, just two at first, then all four.

Several hours of research leads me to believe that the memory is not compatible with my mobo. Further digging leads me to believe that few 4gig sticks will work. Crucial has some, but did not find on NewEgg. I'm abandoning the idea of going to 16gig and simply ordering a second set just like the original, expanding to 8gig instead.
While playing around I decided to see if my original sticks would run at DDR3-1600, and it did.
I'm wanting to speed up Lightroom 3, it seems the best upgrade for it is as much ram as you can. I'm working with 18megapixal images.
Perhaps the next upgrade would be to a SSD. Some of my wait is due to loading files.
It seems that TechIMO is not what it use to be. A few years ago a post like this would have gotten many replies.Asus M4A785TD-V EDO, Phenom II X4 945 Deneb 3.0GHz 4 Gig DDR3 1333 Win7 64 Home

I wish I could help but I have no idea how to set timeings for RAM. Maybe when Shyguy checks in he will know. Some of the members I know that would know don't check in as often.
