MB Underclocking ram?

January 20, 2013 10:53:35 AM


First off I'd like to say this site contains tons of useful info that has helped me numerous times in the past. Now in my second thread I'm hoping for the same!

My system:

Asrock extreme4
I7 3770K
2x Corsair CMZ16GX3M2A1600C9

Running at 45x multi
turbo +0.012
offset +0.05

Ram settings:

manualy to 9-9-9-24
base clock reference 133Mzh
xmp set to auto ( can only choose auto or profile 1 which is 1400Mhz)

The problem

Since first boot or after bios update the default uefi settings for my ram has been 1333Mhz.
Somehow my pc, as seen in pics, thinks the CMZ16GX3M2A1600C9 are pc3-10700 dimms instead of PC3-12800 who should run stock at 1600Mhz.

As a result my pc, aldow capable of doing +12h prime, LinX testing, does from time to time crash with ram related bsod codes.


So yeah I'm a bit puzzled..
