    It appears the motherboard set the memory to the slower timings which is the norm. Anytime you have matching memory but one is lower than the other in speed/timings the motherboard will automatically set all memory to the slowest that is installed.

    Are you getting any system crashes, etc.?

    No problems so far. But in the past I have gone days without a bluescreen.

    I will, so I should just leave the latency/timings alone for now? Speaking of updates Biostar still haven't replied to me about lowering the voltage, and I don't think they are going to.

    if stability is present at this time just leave as is.

    As for Biostar, since this board is rated for memory voltage 1.95 and higher I doubt they have anything in place other than a BIOS update that will allow the lowering of memory voltage.

    Well one week on with my new RAM and I'm happy to say I've had no bluescreens, I've kept everything as you said and my computer is running fine. I have had some problems with a certain game crashing, but since it was only this game I'm just going to assume it's not a problem on my end. I just thought I would update you on my status and add closure to this thread, Route44 I cannot thank you enough, I feel as if you're the reason everything is finally working as it should be. You've been a huge help and once again I thank you.

    Excellent to hear! Glad it is working out and glad I could be of help. If you continue to get system crashes with that one game it probably means a driver issue, but see how it works out over the course of time.

    Thanks for the update.
