I built my wife a computer and it is the first time I have ever done this. So far it has worked as expected but I don't think the memory is going at it's full potential, and I am not sure what to tweek to boost it's performance and not start raising heat isses or stability.

Mobo-Asus p67 deluxe
CPU-i7 k 3.4
Memory- corsair vengeance 2x4 GB DDR3 1600
Psu- enermax revolution 85+ silver 920W
HD- WD 1T, 7K,64M
CD-light on 24x internal cd/dvd writer
Vidio- xfx 6950 2GB
Case- CM 690 II

I set the memory to xms . I was hoping I could edge out a little extra punch with out getting into crazy oc'ing and having heat issues.

  1. Her ram 'should' be running at 800Mhz or thereabouts, download cpu-z to get some more info on the rams speed and timings and the chip and mobo's exact model,
    post back those details for us and we'll see what, if anythings up,
  2. Will do. Thanks.
  3. Ram- cmz8gx3m2a1600c9 tlc9-trcd9-trp9-tras24-trc 411.5v xmp
    mobo- asus p8p67 Deluxe revision B-3
    cpu- i7 3.4 k 2600
    IT is reading it as XMP 1600 MHz on the set up page in bios ,but in the systems info on AI Suit it is reading it as max bandwith as 667 MHz on the jedec #4 profile
  4. The jedec profile info is just a guide, not whats actually going on with your ram per se
    I'd change the trc in your bios to a lower setting, should get it to 31 I reckon, then see how the systems running,
    Off to work now but I'll look in in the morning man,
  5. thanks for the input. Will try and let you know what happens.
  6. looks to be set to 31 already.
