I'm having an issue with my BloodRage BIOS changing the memory timings when XMP is disabled and I have manual timings selected. Specifically the tRAS is changing by itself regardless of what I set.
Currently I'm running a mild overclock to 3.2 (3.5 with turbo on) the memory is at 1604 Mhz using a 160 mhz FSB
I have Mushkin Redlines 991692(998692) DDR3 1600 the ones with the extra wide heatsink. They should run at 6-7-6-18. The problem is that the 18 changes itself to a 16 after a reboot-no matter what I do. If I change it, I can verify the setting stays in CPU-Z but as soon as I restart the machine or power off it changes to 16. It did this in the P09 BIOS and now is also the same problem with the G32. Have tried clearing CMOS etc etc to no avail.
It wouldnt be too great of a problem but 16 tRAS will not pass Prime95 and ocasionally crashes when I'm gaming.
I'm completely stumped on this as Im using manual settings....
