My CPU is designed for 1333 RAM, but I bought 1600 G.Skill RAM, as recommended by banthracis here.

What I think I want to do is run the 1600 RAM at 1333 with better timings than I currently have. CPU-Z reports that my RAM is set like this: 669.7 MHz (3:10) @ 9-9-9-24. What should I change the timings to?

You have to set your ram manually in the bios to run at its advertised speed and timings.

Hi.

The only thing that u need to do is enter to the BIOS and set all the specs of ur ram manually in the BIOS.

Do I need to change the voltage too?

Okay, so this is what I was thinking. My CPU is 1333.

The RAM's specs are:
Speed of 1600.
7-8-7-24-2N
1.65V

I'll set my ram to 7-8-7-24-2N with 1.65V and leave it at 1333.

Does that seem reasonable?

Grr, I can't run memtest86 because my Ubuntu live cd and Hirens CD both refuse to boot correctly on this system.

Should I run the memory ganged or unganged? I thought ganged was better, but my bios claims unganged gives a performance increase.

Okay, my RAM is now at 7-8-7-24-2N. I left the voltage at auto and the clock at 1333. I ran memtest86 from a USB flash drive and completed with no errors. I think I'm set! Thanks!

If the RAM isn't stable u also need change the voltage if is stable don't change it.

According to memtest86 it's stable, so I guess I'm done! Thanks for the info though, in case something goes wrong later.
