witchbutter Posted April 30, 2009 Share Posted April 30, 2009 I just shelled out quite a bit of money for RAM I can get up to high speeds, but sadly I am unable to get it to work. The fastest I can get it to run stable is 1333 with 9-9-9-24 timings. I know that SPD is supposed to set it to 1866 automatically as long as I set the voltage to 1.65. However on automatic settings it runs at 1066. I have tried setting it at 1600 with automatic timings--this fails memtest. I have tried setting it at 1866 with automatic timings--this does not post. I have tried clocking up the FSB to 165 to get the timings up to 1600 from 1333. This will run for a few hours before bluescreening or exhibiting other nasty windows behavior. I have not had any heat issues with the processor, and while the gpu runs hot, I keep the fan cranked to make it always below 60C. And I should point out, that since I installed this ram to replace my Cheapo 1066 memory Prime 95 always causes my system to bluescreen no matter what ram settings I use. Can anyone help me on how to configure this bios to use this ram? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
