Just did my first build last night, trying to access my RAM timings and FSB in Cntrl+ F1 and cannot access these in the Bios Setup Screen. Everything else seems fine, is there a trick to this ? Any insight would be great.

GA-P35-DS3L F6 Bios
Intel 6750 CPU
CORSAIR CMPSU-550VX PSU
CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800
GIGABYTE GV-NX88T512HP GeForce 8800GT 512MB
Win XP 32 bit Home

This has been somewhat frustrating for me (1st build) and any help is appreciated.
thanks, stevedino

thats strange. u sure u pressed ctrl+F1 at the main bios menu? it works fine with me.

i press that. then i go into MIT (not sure if thats the name thing). then i start tweeking the RAM timings.

Thanks Night wolf - I found my manual settings, I do not need to hit Cntrl-F1 as it in the MIT on the fromt page of Bios.

Now I gotta figure out how to up the voltage to 2.1v for my Memory.

lol. thats funny.

but u need to press Ctrl+F1 to change any RAM timings!

changing FSB, or ram frequency multiplier, voltages are all in the MIT default one.

btw, the ram voltage by default is 1.8v(im 80 percent sure. just do double check it). so if u want to make it 2.1v. u have to add 0.3v.

hehe, yeah, I found out how to access my ram timings via CTRl+F1, thanks for help, I adjusted ram timings/voltage, we'll see how it goes.

thanks, for your help !
