Sabertooth Z77 1600MHz CL8 RAM proper settings

November 21, 2012 10:54:57 PM

Hi guys,

I've just finished my new build, however I'm pretty new to putting a system together like this one:

ASUS Sabertooth Z77
Intel Core i5 3570K
Corsair Vengeance 8GB 1600MHz CL8 (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C8R)

When I first turned it on, I knew what I should expect when I entered the BIOS. I found that the RAMs were running at 1333MHz instead of 1600MHz and nor the timings were set as a CL8 memory's settings should look like. So again, they are currently running at 1333MHz frequency by 9-9-9-24 timings. This Corsair memory's timings are basically 8-8-8-24 and should be running on 1.5V. Yet I'm quite unsure how to set the clocks and stuff properly and I'm looking for helpful people who are familiar with it. I just want to avoid things like ruining anything or overclocking the processor unintentionally since I'm not really an expert and because I only have the stock cooler on the CPU yet. I don't know which setting affects what and this is why I started this thread.

Thanks in anticipation :)
