Default RAM timings

i was thinking about getting this RAM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227293
but a lot of the reviews said you had to adjust the timings in order to get the advertised ones. I'm kind of a noob so if anyone could give me instructions on what specificlyto adjust and to what settings that would be great.

Thanks

P.S. this is for a new build so i dont know what BIOS i'll get yet (it dosent tell you in the motherboard specifications)

That's some good stuff. . .

You may have to manually set the correct timings in the BIOS. It really not that big of a deal. The motherboard manual will describe how to adjust the timings and where they are located in the BIOS.

I typically do not recommend over-clocking to the novice builder. It will void the warranty in a lot of cases, so be sure to check on that. I would also recommend not starting a computer build from a memory module. What kind of computer are you building? Home-entertainment? Gaming? Sound-reproduction? Business? Are you going to use RAID? These types of questions will help you choose the motherboard, processor, hard drives, and remaining hardware components.

Thanks, Atomic! Nice looking system Well, if it's over-clocking or bust, Atomic already has you on track.
