>> Re: Memory timings problems
You guys seem like you really know this stuff. How about helping me out please? I built a dedicated system for trading because no vendor (Dell, HP, etc.) sold what I wanted. I am having problems understanding timing of memory, cpu, etc. and I experience a freeze from time to time, then mess with the BIOS until I break it some more, then mess with it again and it eventually works so I stop messing with it until it freezes again. So I've looked on the net everywhere, but everywhere I go all I find is "overclocking" but I don't want this thing screaming and melting; I only want what I intended to build and that is a super-duty rock solid dependable system at any cost which will never let me down. You see in trading, if my system goes down it can literally cost me tens of thousands of dollars in a split second; much more if it takes me a few minutes to get back up running. I don't want "overclocking" but I just want "proper clocking" or "proper timing."

So here's what I built:

Intel QX6850 (quad) Core2 Extreme 3.0 ghz 1333 fsb 8mb L2 cache
4 gb OCZ Platinum DDR3 1333 (2x(2x1gb dual channel sets))
Asus P5K64WS mobo 1333 fsb, onboard Raid, dual gigabit ethernet, etc. 4xPCIe-X16 for 8 monitors max
2x EVGA GeForce 8800 ultra
4x Vizio 42" 1080p lcd tv's for monitors.
5x Seagate ES series 250gb drives
2x Asus lightscribe dvd-ram/ dvd-rw
950 w power
Full Tower case w/ 2x 240cm fans in the side w/ stupid blue lights.
Just stock fans and nothing more and this thing runs steady 45c in my 70f home office (I like it cool in S FL). On rare ocassion it gets to 50c and I speed up the fan to cool it off, but usually if it's hot I have a program hanging.

Again, all I want is this thing to run stable 100% of the time. It is oversized. What is the most stable settings I could use here and what theory applies to this? After I get this thing set I'm going to build 1 or 2 backup systems so I have plenty of redundancy. Anything that helps me understand memory/ system timing will be much appreciated.
