I had a stable 3.5ghz/1.21v overclock on 1333mhz ram running at 1.5v.
I decided I wanted to higher and bought some 1600mhz ram rated at 1.65v.
Every time I run Prime95 pretty much on any settings I get failures. Memory dump after memory dump. I set the dram voltage to 1.64v. I set the timings to 8-8-8-24 just like the Corsair Dominator is rated for and I don't even run it at 1600mhz. I run it anywhere between 1400 and 1550 and no matter what I set the vcore at I get failure. Hell, even if I set it to 1.21v and try for 3.5ghz on the Dominator it fails. What am I doing wrong with this RAM?
loosen the RAM timings to 9-9-9-25, it will make the ram more stable resistance, if the ram is stable settings( under test stabillity) re-tighten your RAM timings 8-9-9-24 test again .....again , until you get the most stable settings for the system
Both motherboard and memory should support XMP profiles, so enable that in BIOS, and adjust frequency to your preferred level (XMP profiles tells the motherboard the settings for QPI/DRAM, DRAM voltage and latencies).
