I'm looking for some help with my memory on board.

Alright these are my specs
AMD Phenom II x4 955 Black Edition 3.20 GHz
MSI 970A-G45 - motherboard
GSKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 1GB DDR5
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler
SilverStone Strider 500W, 80 PLUS, Active PFC Power Supply ST50F-ES
Antec 300 Illusion
2TB Seagate and Hitachi

I added an extra 4gb that are identical to the ram i had before, they both have the same descriptions so in total i now have 8gb of ram but the 2 new modules i added are underclocked from 1600 to 1333.

Whats strange is that my ram that i had before are operating at 1600 while those 2 are operating at 1333.

If anyone can help me figure this out It would be awesome. Here are some pictures of my bios.]shadowsun86

    You'll need this guide to configure settings properly:

    It is difficult for 4 modules to operate DDR3-1600 with AUTO settings.

    Keep us posted on the results. If you have questions or issues, just let us know and we can help.

    Thank you
  2. Go into your bios and manually change the ram speed and then reboot.I use Gskill Sniper Series in my rig and i had to go into my bios to bump mine up to 1866 , because it auto set it at 1600.
