Hi, I recently purchased the following.
AMD ATH II X3 435 AM3
GSKILL F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM (2X2GB)
SAPPHIRE HD4850 512M
I cannot seem to get the clocking for the ram right in the bios.
I tried changing the timings 7-8-7-24 2N and voltage to 1.6 with no luck.
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM
Cas Latency: 7
Multi-channel Kit: Dual Channel Kit
Model #: F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM
Item #: N82E16820231303
What should I try next?
I got the same exact RAM and I am able to set it at 1600Mhz & 7-8-7-24 and even able to set it at 1T. But I got an X3 720BE and an MSI 790FX.
Could it be possible that the Memory controller of the X3 435 is holding the RAM back?
In the BIOS, DRAM config.
I changed the DDR3 timings to manual.
Then I changed the settings from 9,9,9,25 to 7,8,7,24. I didnt change any of the trfc's, delays or times.
Then I set the system voltage to manual.
Changed the DRAM voltage control to 1.6. I also tried 1.62 and 1.64.
1.66 was RED so i didnt try that.
The lowest value was 1.5.
None of these settings worked for me but I am not sure if I did anything right!
Update. This is Gamerx07. I forgot about that account info long ago but work PC must of had the info saved.
