Sandra OC Concern

the products I bought is here: and my mobo is:

I recently changed my timings in bios to what they should be because my cas was at 9 and my clock speed was really low, i finally got the settings correct but my oc in sandra says im at 733%, there is no XMP setting in bios.

What should i do?

Run CPU-Z and see what it reports. Also, keep in mind that if Cool and Quiet is enabled, you will see lower speeds reported when the system is idling (not being stressed).

Good luck!

what should my timings and voltage be set at with these two products?

Your memory specs are: 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1600MHz Non ECC Unbuffered XMS Heat Spreader Kit, 1.65V / 240-Pin / CL7-8-7-20 / Corsair CMX4GX3M2A1600C7.
Your mobo supports these settings.

Did you run CPU-Z? If so, what settings did it report?

Last, I wouldn't worry too much about the lack of XMP settings. Just allowing the mobo to run at default settings in the BIOS will allow the system to run reliably. If you want to manually set to the specs listed for your memory, that should be fine.

I actually have them set at CL7-8-7-20 with 1.65v... my computer specs are: 1055t x6 amd with 700gb harddrive and nvidia 460gtx with a 500W powersupply.

Are my voltages to high for my powersupply? and is 733% OC on sandra bad?

Your voltage is fine. I have no idea what 733% OC means. Sandra really isn't widely used. That is why I have been asking you to install CPU-Z to report what it shows.

However, sounds like your system is running well so you have nothing to worry about.

Good luck!

Yeah I have CPU-Z and my spd for xmp-1600 says 7-8-7-20-41-2T should I set it at those settings?

Sounds like you are already there. What does CPU-Z report on the very first page in terms of memory speed?

Looks like you are good to go. Double you DRAM freq and you are exceeding your 1600Mhz rating. Is the system stable?

it is but my motherboard temp is always high even without clocking

How high? What temps are you seeing (CPU, GPU, and mobo)?
September 4, 2010 4:08:37 AM

cpu 30 gpu 30 mobo 50-60

How are you measuring temps? In the BIOS or with hwmonitor?
September 4, 2010 5:10:39 PM

hwmonitor is that high for mobo?

also what should i manually set my timings to?

Because your CPU and GPU temps are good, I wouldn't worry about it. It may just be the temp sensor on the motherboard. Is the system performing well otherwise? Also, it could be a matter of less than optimal airflow. I don't believe you need to change your settings at this point in time.
