no settings adjustable settings available in bios.
Motherboard says PC1600 and up is exceptable.

  1. Then try settting it manually. All 1155 boards that I know of use 1333 as the default ram speed.
  2. being an hp board....it may not be possible.....the bork the boards to stop overclocks........and some boards ram speed is tied into the overclock......not so sure on a p7 tho


    a better place to look may be an hp forum???

    Really?
  6. Revurg ur one ram's speed is 1333.
    and one ram's is 1600
    so motherboard automatically adjust the speed of slower ram.
    so i suggest u if u try with only ur 16gb ramn check whether ur geting 1600 speed
    and try upgrading ur old ram to 1600
    hope this will help you!!
  7. The other poster is correct; hp boards have no adjustments for the ram speed. It will only run at 1333 max.

    I have removed the PC 1333.
    Only using PC 1600.
    Why would morherboard manual say
    PC 1600 is compliant if it won't read it?
  9. Won't hurt to run with 1600 ram; sometimes it's actually cheaper on sale. But I doubt you can adjust the ram speed in an hp bios. 1333 is normal for your chipset, and hp boards won't overclock the cpu.
  10. Ok thanks, guess I'll work with what I have.
    That being the case. Would I be better with 4x4GB Corsair 1600 at 1333 or 4x4 Hynix (original ram) can get 8 Gigs on ebay.

    No difference with your board settings. Both are probably CL9 with the same timings.
  12. Thanks again.
