As a rule, the parameters of modules of RAM are installed automatically immediately after they connect to the motherboard of the computer. But using the BIOS menu you can configure the RAM is more subtle.
Turn on the computer and immediately after that press the Del key. Appears the BIOS menu. Usually find settings for the memory in the Advanced tab. Next you need to select CPU Configuration and go to the tab Memory controller. But depending on the motherboard model and version BIOS settings memory can be in other tabs.
When you open the menu and configure the settings of the computer's memory, you will see that almost all parameters set to "Auto". This means that the system automatically configured the RAM. You will see that the memory settings a lot. Actually you don't have to fully configure all parameters manually, you only need the basic settings.
One of the main parameters of the memory is the Memory frequency that is a clock frequency at which your memory. Select the row of Memory frequency, and it is the parameter Manual. This means that you can now independently change the frequency of OP. Now set the frequency of the RAM. The value that will appear immediately after you select the manual tuning of the memory speeds, it is considered by default you can increase this frequency.
Also you can increase the speed of issuing the signal read, to do this, locate the option Speculative Leadoff (not supported by all models of motherboards and enable this function by selecting Enabled. Then find the value of the Turn-Around Insertion and also enable this feature. This should slightly improve memory performance.
Advice 2 : How to increase frequency of RAM
No matter how fast was your computer or laptop, since his power no longer enough and he can no longer cope with the desired task. Then there is the idea of the dispersal of its components. A relatively decent performance increase can be achieved by driving the RAM of the computer. Just remember that acceleration leads to a decrease in the stability of your computer, so it must be carried out with caution and only when absolutely necessary.
You will need
- - Computer with Windows;
- - CPU Stability Test.
So, in order to increase the frequency of operational memory, go into the BIOS. After this, go to advanced settings (can they be called Advanced Chipset Settings or some other similar way). To change the timings to find the field responsible for it (Current Latency or similar) and put the minimum value. For example, if is 3, place 2.
Now try increasing the frequency of the memory. To do this, here, find, responsible for the speed of the system bus. It might be called FSB Speed or similar. Put frequency of the bus is 1 step greater than that which is you now. It is better to change the frequency at minimum value, no more than 5 MHz.
After changing the bus frequency in the BIOS, save settings, load the operating system and run the program to test stability of CPU and memory. In this respect, well-proven program CPU Stability Test.
If the test utility showed no problems, feel free to go back to BIOS and increase the frequency of the system bus (together with the processor and operative memory) in a step. Then again, save settings, load operating system and test stability. The cycle should be repeated until, while it will not show the instability of the current configuration. In this case, you should return to BIOS and revert at a frequency of 2 steps back.
Usually overclocking the RAM is to increase the system bus frequency or reduce timings to a minimum. Timings determine the response rate in clock cycles your RAM. Not all motherboards allow you to change the system bus frequency with small increments (1-5 MHz), if so, better give up overclocking. With increasing frequency of the system bus at the same time increases the frequency of the processor. If this occurs abruptly without proper testing, it is a high risk of disabling one or both of these components of the computer.
Advice 3 : How to change the memory timing
If you want to improve the performance of RAM without having to install new strips of RAM, then reduce the timings available. This should be done very carefully, so as not to damage the computer devices.
You will need
- - Riva Tuner.
First test the installed memory modules. In the operating system Windows Seven has a built-in utility for this process. Open control panel and select "System and security". Now open the "administrative tools". Go to menu "Windows memory diagnostic". Now select reboot and test the memory".
Now restart the computer and open the BIOS menu, press Delete. Press Ctrl and F1 to open the advanced options menu work on the computer. Go to the Advanced menu. Now let's examine the data located below the line Memory Frequency. There are four points: Latеncy CAS, RAS Resid dеlay, RАS to CAS Delаy and Active Resid Dеlay.
To reduce the timings need very carefully, each time changing only one parameter at a minimum "unit". Start out the first paragraph of CAS Latency. Usually it is reduced by 0.5. Return to the main menu of the BIOS. Select Save & Exit and press the Enter key. After the computer restarts, repeat the procedure for entering the menu of the RAM testing.
In that case, if the program showed improvement, continue to reduce the timings by changing the value of the next item (RAS Resid dеlay). To avoid constant reboots of the computer during the memory test, use special tools.
Install memtest or Riva Tuner. Using these utilities test the performance and stability of RAM. The latter program, incidentally, has a function of reducing timings. Remember that it is recommended to perform this process is through BIOS, because it will allow you to quickly restore the factory settings of the computer in case of failure.
