Cas latency in AMI BIOS 3.31a

Hello everyone,

I try to setup the cas latency of my RAM memory in AMI BIOS but I can't. I know that it is under the Advanced Chipset Features menu but I don't see anything about Cas Latency. In my Advanced Chipset Features menu, I have tose settings:

LDT to AGP Lokar (upstream) "16bit"
LDT to AGP Width (downstream) "16bit"
LDT to AGP Lokar frenquency "800Mhz"
Memclock mode "auto"
Memclock value "DDR333"
bank interleaving "auto"
Node interleaving "disabled"
bust length "8 beat"
Vlink 8 x supported "disabled
AGP mode "auto"
AGP fast wright "enebled"
AGP apperture suze "128MB"
OnChip VGA Frame buffer size "64MB"
CPU Direct access onchip VGA FB "disabled"
Boot Device select "CRT"

I know that Cas Latency is set to 3 because I can see it at startup. I would like to change it to 2.5.

Thank you

Hey Luc,

I got a chance to check on that memory part number. Most of the sources that I ran across were outside of the USA (and there were very few of them). Was this memory purchased from an online vendor or over the counter at a brick and mortar store?

Here's the thing - I can't find any listings for this memory module on ebay which is odd because generally you can find anything by punching its part number into ebay and a lot of the time you get more detailed specs on the part thru ebay than you would thru a regular web search. I did determine that the specs you posted were pretty much right but I couldn't get any more advanced specs than what you provided.

You may want to source a diffrent module(s) for your unit using the specs I posted a link to before and going with the PC3200 mods. Just make sure you match the CL and voltage detailed for your machine.

I wish there was a better answer for you but if I can't verify the validity of the memory you're trying to use than I have to recommend going with a different module altogether.

Post back here with your progress on this, I'll be curious to see how it turns out.

First of all, why do you bother to change all these spec? Secondly, since your screen flicked, I would suggest you just leave them like that. Your PC is just as old as mine, don't mess around with it too much.

1. Does your new SATA hard drive can be seen in BIOS or POST. if yes 2. Does this new drive shown in "my computer" it should be no or under device manager is should be yes. 3. Use disk management.
To start Disk Management:

  1. Log on as administrator or as a member of the Administrators group.
  2. Click Start, click Run, type compmgmt.msc, and then click OK.
  3. In the console tree, click Disk Management. The Disk Management window appears. Your disks and volumes appear in a graphical view and list view. To customize how you view your disks and volumes in the upper and lower panes of the window, point to Top or Bottom on the View menu, and then click the view that you want to use.

To create a new partition or logical drive on a basic disk:
  1. In the Disk Management window, complete one of the following procedures, and then continue to step 2:
    • To create a new partition, right-click unallocated space on the basic disk where you want to create the partition, and then click New Partition.
    • To create a new logical drive in an extended partition, right-click free space on an extended partition where you want to create the logical drive, and then click New Logical Drive.
  2. In the New Partition Wizard, click Next.
  3. Click the type of partition that you want to create (either Primary partition, Extended partition, or Logical drive), and then click Next.
  4. Specify the size of the partition in the Partition size in MB box, and then click Next.
  5. Decide whether to manually assign a drive letter, let the system automatically enumerate the drive, or do not assign a drive letter to the new partition or logical drive, and then click Next.
  6. Specify the formatting options you want to use by using one of the following procedures:
    • If you do not want to format the partition, click Do not format this partition, and then click Next.
    • If you want to format the partition, click Format this partition with the following settings, and then complete the following procedure in the Format dialog box:
      1. Type a name for the volume in the Volume label box. This is an optional step.
      2. Click the file system that you want to use in the File system box.

        You can change the disk allocation unit size, and then specify whether to perform a quick format, or enable file and folder compression on NTFS volumes.
      Click Next.

  7. Confirm that the options that selected are correct, and then click Finish.
The new partition or logical drive is created and appears in the appropriate basic disk in the Disk Management window. If you chose to format the volume in step 6, the format process now starts.

To format a partition, logical drive or basic volume:
  1. In the Disk Management window, right-click the partition or logical drive that you want to format (or reformat), and then click Format.
  2. In the Format dialog box, type a name for the volume in the Volume label box. This is an optional step.
  3. Click the file system that you want to use in the File system box. If you want, you can also change the disk allocation unit size, specify whether you want to perform a quick format, or enable file and folder compression on NTFS volumes.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Click OK when you are prompted to format the volume. The format process starts.

Thanks, looking forward to fix your problem, just give a feedback if this helps.

GA-7VX memory error

Kingston manufacturer code on side of Ram Memory module, please. Need to know if it's compatible. Post back in a Comment.

Should be;

SDR Sdram at 133MegaHertz. (PC133)
LOW-density, unbuffered, Non-ECC, 3.3 Volt, 64Meg X 64 chip configuration, Cas Latency of 3.

Suspect Ram Memory you bought as the problem; especially if it is ECC, high-density, SERVER computer ram memory, sold on Eb** all the time.

Getting rid of surplus inventory, that NOBODY really wants.

Awaiting reply;

I bought a new 1GB ram(DD2) when i insert it it nt work bt whenever i insert it with old 512MB ram then its work bt in bios setting only show the 1GB ram

Maybe 1GB is the maximum amount of memory that your system will hold. And maybe your system likes memory to be in pairs, so when you put the 1GB in by itself it didn't work, but when you put it in with a 512MB it works.

Hi, what RAM can I or can't I add on my GA-8I945PM ?

No, *********** board only supports DDR2 Ram thus the PC2 in your current RAM. Also the maximum capacity of your motherboard is 4gb. So if I were you I would recommend going to 4 1gb PC2-4200 modules. This would reduce latency as opposed to 2 2gb sticks. Also I recommend the 4200 rather than the 6400 or anything else as that is the optimal speed for your motherboard. Kingston is a good company to buy from, I am currently using 8 Kingston FB 2gb DDR3 sticks in my MAC Pro.

Why does my comp didn't run Dual channel ?

Go into your BIOS and activate dual channel mode.

please also note that several motherboard required you to put the modules in certain slot configuration (such as in slot 1 and 3 or 2 and 4) but if you got only 2 slot then forget about this slot configuration.

Memory Issue

You could try lowering the Cas latency. Just boot into the bios and try lowering the cas latency up by .5 For example, if it's running at 2.0 change it to 2.5 or 2.5 to 3.0 Yes this will slow down your system, but it may be a more stable speed for the ram to run at. You could also have bad ram, or maybe your problem isn't ram related at all. It's possible your motherboard is the cause of all of your problems. Peter

Overclocking failed

Hi, If you have overclocked: 1. CPU or motherboard not up to it - run at default speed; or 2. Memory - try using other memory; or 3. Video Card - see if you can run the Video card at default speed and not with overclock speed; or 4. You may need to up the CPU B+ a bit. If not overclocked: a. Set BIOS/CMOS to default settings; or b. Disable any overclocking feature (even if not used); or c. Lower you CAS latency. Hope this be of some help/idea. ood luck and kind regards.

Ram problem

1)not all rams are dual compatible 2)did u try both sticks separately? (1 may be damaged) 3)are they exactly the same? CAS, voltage, etc..? Sometimes different CHIPS cause trouble 4)try changing to 333 mhz if it works, go back to 400 and try either CAS 3.0 (assuming auto is 2.5 or lover) if not working yet, try the "T" seeting to "1". If your BIOS doenst show this setting and is AWARD, after getting into it with DEL, press CTRL+F1 and then look which setting came from the dark... (hidden settings) on Gigabyte boards for ex. it has to be done.
