Solved Ram runs too slow Tags: Overclocking Corsair Dominator RAM Last response: June 25, 2013 4:40 AM in Overclocking Share Yesamo June 25, 2013 2:30:03 AM Hello guys! First off all, i recently built a new pc and i wanted to try out some overclocking for the first time. My relevant specs are: Asus Maximus V Formula i7 3770k Corsair Dominator Platinum 1866 (16gb) My CPU runs stable at 4.7 GHz at the moment. (Btw, does this look okay?) But my RAM somehow refuses to run at 1866 mhz.. it stays like this all the time: I tried enabling the XMP profile but then my CPU doesn't go over 3.9, and when i try to change the target frequency my PC crashes before even firing up Windows.. Could you please help me? More about : ram runs slow Reply to Yesamo aatje92 a b K Overclocking June 25, 2013 2:32:30 AM Could you also post a SS of the SPD tabs?

Maybe try to add a little of DRAM voltage when you enable XMP profile, try and see if you can get it over 3.9ghz? Reply to aatje92 Yesamo June 25, 2013 2:49:24 AM Nailed it, looks like somehow it's working now.. Thanks a lot! Reply to Yesamo aatje92 a b K Overclocking June 25, 2013 3:50:57 AM Nice! Awesome overclock btw, altough that core voltage does seem a little high doesn't it? Reply to aatje92 Yesamo June 25, 2013 4:40:29 AM Okay, I lowered it and it's still stable after half an hour of prime95.. I'm satisfied The temps don't even go past 70°.. considering that Ivys are known to get hotter than Sandys maybe I could get it even higher, but I guess that wouldn't make much of a difference.
