Im new to overclocking, I recently overclocked my cpu where it is stable, but by doing, it lowered my ram to 1444mhz because i changed the SPD to 8 to reach my stable cpu overclocked.
When nothing is overclocked and i enable xmp it does read correctly..
My Ram is corsair xms3 rated at 1600 8-8-8-24 @ 1.65
CPU-Z shows it at 1444 mhz and 8-8-8-20. I do not want to overclock my ram i just want it to be stock at 1600.
I did read the manual for my mobo which is ga-x58a-ud3r, which it did say to enable the xmp profile to get correct ram speeds.
So all i really want to know is how to put my ram at 1600.
I am stable at 3.78ghz with temps on full load around 67. I was playing around with some of the numbers, and i could get to 3.8ghz with 19x200, with the ram being exactly 1600. I will try this tonight and run prime and post the results. I am a little confused though between the cpu multiplier and the blck frequency, as if lowering the cpu multiplier and raising the blck frequency changes anything. I will post tomorrow the results.
I could also try 20x190=1520.
All these the spd would be at 8.
I appreciate your reply.
I ran it at 19x200 which gave me 3.8ghz and 1600 mhz on prime95 for 10 hours with 0 errors or warning so i am all good now. Cpu-Z is showing all of the correct timings as well.
Thank you for all of the help
