Hello,

I have a GTX 670 and added a second GTX 670 because I bought a larger monitor. My memory used to run at 1600Mhz but now it's only stable at 1333MHz. Do you know what could be causing this? Could it be related to the power supply? I currently have a OCZ 700 PSU.

Here is my other specs.
I7 2600K at 4.2Ghz
4 x 4 GB Corsair RAM
1 x 256 SSD
2 x 2 TB traditional hard drives in a RAID 1 configuration
1 x standard SATA DVD drive


Thanks,

David

since you have 4 ram sticks i would raise the voltage a bit and see if that helps it run at 1600

Hi, the voltage is at 1.50 V. How high should I rise it? Thanks.

That voltage is pretty standard for 1600 mhz ram. Very strange. I would do what Scout said, go to the bios and change it to 1600, should fix your issues.

dont forget that you work with intel cpu so raising memory voltage it at your risk

Hi, I enabled XMP in the BIOS and everything seems to be stable. I haven't had any BSOD yet running the memory at 1600Mhz. Thanks for all the advice.
