Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD4P and 2 kits of TR3X6G1600C9


Recommended Posts

I have the same mobo and memory, but with 2x 6GB kit, and it won't run at 1600. I tried setting everything back to failsafe, then it says it's 1066 (133*8) with CPU 2.66GHz (133*20) which works fine.


But when I enable XMP (Profile1) it won't boot. I set the Performance thingy back to Standard (as opposed to Turbo or Extreme).


My BIOS is the latest (F8), the only newer version is F10b, but that's beta. Should I try it ? I doubt it will help.


Anything else to try to get it to 1600?


And one other thing. I played around a bit, and set it up like this: CPU 166*16 (=2.66Ghz) and DRAM 166*8 (=1328MHz), and it seems to work, and the mobo didn't complain. Is this considered overclocked ? Everything else is on Auto, I didn't mess around with the voltages either.


In the mobo's manual it says "Support for DDR3 2100/1333/1066/800 MHz memory modules". Does this mean it DOESN'T support 1600 modules?? and is this TR3X6G1600C9 1600 even? Because memtest says there are 6 PC3-10660 CM3X2G1600C9 in the slots.


I'm confused. Any help appreciated. Thanks.
