Ok..
So, I have been OCing for quit a while now and am trying to get to GGG.
I use the OCDB to find similar setups and use those as a starting point for my rig.

One thing though. Whenever I see a reference to DRAM drive strength, It always from level 1-8...

In my BIOS "704-2bta" The options are as follows.
level 1 weak/normal
level 2 weak/normal
level 3 weak/normal
level 4 weak/normal

Now this is 8 levels but im not sure what each equals?

Eg.. Lets say a post said DRAM Drive strenght level 7

What would the equivelant in my BIOS be?

Thanks to anyone that can clear this up for me...

Weak4. In the other bios's level 7 is the highest weak level.

Ask G.SKill Technician over on the XtremeSystems forums about DRAM Drive Strength for your RAM.
