Help with my 1600 Mhz DDR3 RAM

I have 1600 MHz DDR3 RAM and the speed was running at 1333 MHz so I changed the ratio in the bios to 1:4 to make it run at 1600 MHz. When I checked my speed to make sure it was running at 1600 MHz with CPU-Z it says that it is running at 1999.9 MHz, can this cause any problems?

  1. Set frequency in BIOS manually to 1600MHz, you've probably set XMP to 2000MHz, set XMP to 1.3
  2. I cant change my frequency in the BIOS, I can only change the ratio. I looked it up and people were saying that 1600 MHz's ratio was 1:4, I did change the ratio in the BIOS though.
  3. What frequency shows BIOS?
  4. In BIOS it says it is set to 1600 MHz.

    I believe more to BIOS than CPU-Z
    So i think nothing bad will happen to you!

  7. Hi,

    If it works don't fix it.
    Do you have slowdowns or hickups, are you satisfied with the speed of your computer ?
  8. Yes, I noticed my computer start to run slower so I wanted to try this to help get going as fast as it was.
