  1. I don't understand what your asking if your not OCing.
    Go into bios and change the ram setting to the rated timings, frequency, and voltage and don't change anything else.
  2. Ok ... so you are saying my ram is ok ... I just need to input the data in bios ... no conflicts?
  3. you didnt list your mobo. and since its intel it might support XMP then all you have to do is select that and it does all the work.
  4. Yes ... mobo ... asus p7p55d-e Pro ... and I guess that is where I read the following ... which confused me ... "According to Intel CPU spec, CPUs with a core frequency of 2.66G support maximum Dimm frequency of up to DDR3-1333. To use Dimms of higher frequency with a 2.66 G cpu, enable the DRAM oc profile feature in bios." ... so is it just a bios setup issue ... or more complicated ... thanks
  5. thats the same mobo I'm getting with an i5 760 using DDR3 1600.
    DDR3 1333 Cas 9 is the default for p55.
    So all you should have to do is go into bios and set the timings and voltage manual. Basically, just read and copy the specs, and if the options not listed on the specs don't touch it.
  6. Off of newegg: "Memory Standard:
    DDR3 2200(O.C.)/1600/1333/1066"
    Review from a guy on newegg using DDR3 1600 RAM:
