Hello,

Running DDR3 1600 Corsair Vengence. Is there any better memory you can recommend for fast graphics and high in gaming.

Also Bios shows 1333 memory not 1600. When I change it in ASUS easy Bios to 1600 after reboot it resorts back to 1333.

Is there anything better then Corsair?

Thank You

Jaye Fayed

Corsair Vengeance and G.Skill Ripjaws/Ripjaws X/Sniper are the kinds I recommend. There really isn't any better for fast graphics and high end gaming.

If you actually have 32GB of RAM, that might be a mainboard limitation. Some boards will slow down the RAM when you install the maximum amount. Or it could be something with the BIOS -- do you have the newest BIOS revision?

Give us a list of your system's hardware.

I have new Sandy Bridge Core 7 3.4, EVGA GTX 580 card, 16 Megs of Corsair Viengance Ram, Titanium HD THX Sound card, new ASUS P87Z67 Pro Motherboard.

Why is my bios saying I am running 1333 when I am running 4 4 Gig sticks?

Thank You

You haven't configured your ram properly that's why.

Go in bios, set voltage, speed and timings manually according to the sticker on the ram.

By the way, gaming doesn't even use 6gb of ram, let alone 16gb.

Your motherboard probably maxes at 1333 without overclocking the RAM frequency so you would have to manually disable that feature and do what the above poster said.

We don't know that though because he failed to tell us what kind of motherboard he has.

Anyone seen that memory review from Anand that I've been posting on here? I wouldn't even bother, won't make any difference. Leave it as it is.

Like I said the sweet spot for Sandy Bridge is 1600mhz, so set it to that and leave it alone.
