Hello folks,
I just finished puttin' together my new compy and whaddya know, the RAM is runnin' slower than normal. 1333 MHz right now I believe. It's rated for 1866 MHz and I believe that my motherboard is as well but these things tend to occur as recent google searches have told me. Anyways, Here's a screenshot and my specs

AMD FX-6200 - 3.8 GHz

Corsair Dominator Platinum 2 x 4 GB DDR3

ASUS M5A99X EVO R2.0




If somebody would be able to help me with the voltages, timings, and speeds it would be greatly appreciated

your ram should already have the settings you need stored under the XMP profile. that is to say assigning a new speed for the memory should automatically set the timings. the settings can be assigned under AI tweaker in bios. If you do not know about this feature I strongly recommend you read a number of guides online about overclocking, most reliable of which can be found on these forums under overclocking sections relevant to your cpu socket/generation.

I though 1866 was for the APU's ?......... anyways, go into the BIOS and look for ram timings and set to what they are supposed to run at. ( 1600 ) hit F1 and then enter. this will save settings and reboot machine.

make sure ram is in correct sots ( see mobo booklet )

The voltage, timings and speeds are listed on the dimm's themselves on the sticker.

Go in bios and set to those specs.
