However, the RAM won't run above 1600 and the Freq won't go above 3400. The only thing that performs at the rate I'm expecting is the HT.
If I try to adjust the CPU clock speed to 233:
Freq goes up to 3946
RAM goes up to 1864
HT drops to 2074.
I suppose I'd be okay with those numbers, but the problem is as soon as I reboot I get a "System has suffered boot failures" message (not BSOD), but gives me the option to load the OS anyways. I drops the CPU Clock back down to 200 (which , resets the RAM to 1600, and resets the HT to 2600, and the CPU Freq goes back to 3400).
If I load the OS and run CPU-Z right after:
RAM is running at 2013 MHz nb Freq (Win 8 says its 1600)
HT is running between 1900-2020
Core Speed sits around 800MHz
So what am I missing here? It seems to me that, considering everything (with the exception of upping the voltage on the RAM) should be a plug and chug sort of move, why isn't my RAM giving me it's maximum output according to what the board supports (w/o OC)?
