Hello,
Will the Patriot Signature 2 GB PC3-12800 DDR3 1600MHz PSD3216002 be compatible with the Asus P7H55 M-Pro motherboard. It is not on the motherboard's QVL. I have the motherboard but not the memory stick.

Well, generally if it fits it works. The RAM I'm using wasn't on the motherboard's QVL either, but it still works.

Installed the RAM and it is working. However, it is only running at 1333mhz. So it is compatible. It's just not running at 1600mhz

Easy to overclock. 1333mhz is the JEDEC spec so the mobo picks that as default. 1600mhz is considered an overclock, even tho it's officially supported by your RAM. You should be able to easily set it with XMP Profile 1 in your BIOS. No hassle, and you'll even get a slight CPU OC too (BCLK will go from 133 to 160).

I used the DOCP setting on the mobo and the cpu was automatically overclocked but CPZ shows the ram running at 803MHZ.

that's right. ddr=double data rate, ie: 803x2 so 1606mhz. :)

Thanks wolfram23, all's running great. I added an extra exhaust fan, an intake fan and getting nice temps.

QVLs not updated as often. Therefore, newest RAM modules may not be in the list.

One should compare the voltage, size, speed, and the construction of RAM modules to those specified in the M/B manual. If they match, they work. And they do.

But there is something wrong in your system. CPU-Z must show 1600, not 803. No math needed ( 803x2=1606 )

Maybe your M/B needs a BIOS update. Or you may have to define your RAM module manually in BIOS. Please just check your M/B manual.

Sorry suat, but that's wrong. Here's a pic I took not too long ago, my RAM running at 1400mhz showing 699

Thank you for the clarification. I think I misinterpreted the information. Sorry for causing you inconvenience. I must confess you had good screen captures.

Best regards
