How do i get a TA75M+ to use 1866 ram settings ? Every time i think that it is set it shows as 1600 after i reboot. i am using dual channel f3-14900cl9d-8gbxl. Biostar can only tell me to make sure to upgrade my BIOS(it is the newest). I have changed and used different settings given in threads/forums etc. GSkill has wished me a happy Chinese new year. Cpu is a A8-3870K. I have checked my speed with CPUZ.

I'm sure you are saving your settings after you exit the BIOS? Also have you adjusted your RAM voltage to accommodate the faster speed? Your motherboard definitely supports that RAM speed, you may need to OC your CPU as well to make sure if can manage your RAM at that speed.

I thought 1866 was supported w/o OC. I did OC the CPU and that pushed the RAM up some from 1600. Biostar stated 2000(maybe) if OC but OC was not specified on the 1866. My bad. I wanted to buy a Gigabyte anyway. Thanks. I used Biostars "generic" overclocking program.

a lot of times manufactures say that they support higher speeds but in order to achieve the desired speed some tweaking is still needed. I would definitely adjust your RAM voltage, depending on what type of RAM you have you will need at least 1.65v maybe even 1.85 to reach 1866. To be completely honest though the difference between 1600 and 1866 isn't going to be noticeable expect for benchmarking applications, and probably some software programs.
