Hi all! I'm hoping you guys can help a noob out...
I finally got all the components together and built my new pc! I took it for a test run and everything seems to be working well, but I don't feel like it's running to full potentiol. Considering that this was (in my opinion) a big step up from my old computer, I thought I'd double check with CPU-Z to see if I could find anything out. I see some low frequency numbers on the RAM and GPU tabs and I start to get concerned. I don't know enough about this stuff to really tell though, so if anyone could help me out I'd really appreciate it!
Hopefully I did those right. If anyone can point me in the right direction, whether everything is fine and I don't know how to read these things, or if something is not set up properly and can explain how to fix it. Sorry for all the questions.... :S
Again my biggest concerns are with the RAM and GPU but if you spot other things wrong feel free to let me know
I went into the BIOS and moved the RAM settings a bit, to get it to 1333MHz which is what the RAM is rated for, also tried to move the latency numbers to what was on the box (7-7-7-18 I believe). Is there anything else I need to do to get my RAM to where it should be? I don't want to OVERclock anything, I don't see the need, but I at least want to get as much as I payed for. I'm completely new to moving things around in BIOS. Thanks for all the replies so far though! Any recommendation/tips?
True, and I have a decent cooler and a HAF 922 with an extra 200mm fan keeping everything nice and cool, and I might overclock in the future. But since this build is under a week old, I want to get everything up to where it should be first before I push it any further. The only thing I've done (pretty sure anyway) was what I said above about RAM, increased the multiplier to get it to 1333MHz, and upped the voltage a hair (still under 1.6V I think) and the CAS latency numbers, or the first four of the anyway. I don't know what to do with anything else in there.
