i am a fresh DIYer. i just got CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory from Newegg and the timing should be 4-4-4-12 at 2.1V (model: TWIN2X2048-6400C4). My MB is Gigabyte P965 DS3 Rev 1.3 (Bios F10) also got from Newegg. From CPUZ i found they were working at 5-5-5-18. I want to know how to set up timing to 4-4-4-12 in Bios. I don't know what is the default voltage of this MB for memory and how much voltage i need to add to memory. Appreciate your help!!

That board runs 1.8v Vdimm stock so +.3 will give you 2.1v. As far as the timings, hit CTRL+F1 to reveal the hidden portion of the bios and the section for changing the memory timings.
