    Here is my BIOS options (Asus P5Q Pro)

    Ai Overclock tweaker
    CPU Ration setting
    FSB strap to north bridge
    DRAM Frequency
    DRAM Timing Control
    1st info: 5-5-5-18-3-42-6-3
    2nd info: 8-3-5-4-6-4-6
    3rd info: 15-4-1-6-6
    DRAM Static Read control
    DRAM read training
    Mem OC Charger
    AI Clock twister
    AI transaction booster
    DRAM Voltage

    Here is spec sheet http://www.corsair.com/_datasheets/TWIN2X2048-6400C4DHX.pdf

    Just change the first four numbers to 4-4-4-12, that should be about it.

    P.S. if your not certain on what to do, leave it as it is, its not exactly slow.

    P.P.S Playing with the BIOS can damage your system etc, so don't blame me or Bit-tech if anything goes wrong ;)

    It is currently running at the correct settings. If you want to lower the timings, find the 5-5-5-18 in your bios settings and lower it to the 4-4-4-12. Set your voltage to 2.1v in the dram voltage setting and it should work. Should being the key word here.

    I have the exactly same motherboard and exactly same RAM (but 8GB of it) as you and I did that right away and I must say it works like a charm. And the modules are only warm to touch.
