Yea, the numbers after the four main ones are called secondary timmings and they are far less important. So don't worry about the secondary timmings.

So change the 6-6-6-18 to 5-5-5-15.
What is the RAM your using btw?

I'm using OCZ platinum

NCIX.com - Buy OCZ Platinum XTC PC2-6400 4GB 2X2GB DDR2-800 CL5-4-4-15 DDR2 240PIN Dual Channel Memory Kit - OCZ2P8004GK In Canada.

I set the timings to what i'm told, memory 2:0, +0.1v mch/memory, 1.34v cpu, fsb 333, no post. What the heck.

Has your Bios been flashed to most recent version?

Be right back, i'll get on that. Would having an older BIOS really give me this much trouble?
