How to get RAM to run at advertised speed
i have a phenom ii x 3 720 unlocked 4 core and adata ddr3 ram rated at 1600 MHz 9-9-9-24. My problem is I cannot get the ram to run at 1600 MHz. Right now I am running it at 1333 MHz 7-7-7-20 at 1.5 V. I have gotten it to 1600 MHz 9-9-9-24-1T at 1.6 V but BSODs after an hour. I have tried increased voltage to 1.68 V but no difference. Is there anything else I can try? I read that phenom IIs dont support 1600 MHz ddr3 RAM. Is this true? Would it help to increase CPU-NB VID? what is the safe limit for this? right now its at 1.2 V.
