I have CORSAIR 400MHZ DDR NO-ECC 2048M TWINX C2
rated 2-3-3-6

but in my BIOS when set to auto it show

CAS # latency (tcl) 3 ( I know I have to change this on to 2 but what about the rest?)
min ras # activetime (tras) 8t
ras# to cas# delay (trcd) 3t
row precharge time (trp) 3t
rowcycle time (trc) 11t
Row refresh cyc time (trfc) 13t
read-to-write time (trwt) 5t
write recovery time (twr) 3t
1t/2t memory timing 2t

Cas(tCL) 2 or 2.5 for AMD (mine works at 2)
min ras# activetime (tRAS) at 6
1t/2t memory timing 1T

leave the rest stock. I know I dont have the same board as you but a BIOS update fixed the Mem. menu so they had autos insted of numbers (it used to be like that for me too on the 1013 BIOS, now on 1014). They will probly fix this in the next BIOS for your board, I take it your already running the latest being that you got an X2 CPU.

1t/2t memory timing 2t

CAS # latency (tcl) 2
min ras # activetime (tras) 6t
ras# to cas# delay (trcd) 3t (you can prolably try 2 here)
row precharge time (trp) 3t (you can prolably try 2 here)

1t/2t memory timing 2t - This depends on if your using 4x512MB then leave it at 2T, if your using 2x1GB than change to 1T.

Leave the others as is.

I also tried 2-2-2-6 & 2.5-2-2-6, I couldn't boot. I read the 1024 sticks are a little harder to OC with. Its true with mine.

@ Zerocool - make sure your Asynclat is @ 6ns and your read pre-amble @ 5.5ns

also try knocking down TRC & TRFC to 7 & 9.

A64 tweaker is your friend here as it lets you try out bios settings from the Windows enviroment thus saving on lots of re-boots and CMOS clearing!!!!!!!

I wish I could run 1T :-(

maybe next year ill get 2x1gb modules.

1t vs 2t isn't that big of a deal. you will really only see a reduction in synthetic benchmark memory bandwidth, and at most a 1-3% drop in performance in actual applications. I'd take extra memory and increased cpu speed over 1t anyday
