EVGA P55 LE
2- 2GB G-Skill DDR3
Windows 7 64-bit
Ive recently OC'd my i5 750 to 3.6ghz with BCLK at 180 and multiplier x20
I left all the voltages at auto turned off speedstep and turbo mode (Cstates on) The OC seemed fine no problems at all though i did not use any stress test however I didn't feel the need to since 3.6 is a known stable OC for the i5 750. Throughout the day i realized that the ram was only 2gb of the 4gb i have installed.
Heres the odd part did some research on it and no one seems to have the problem that i am having because all the other threads I've looked at had solutions (ie. 32bit instead of 64bit, msconfig max mem on/off, bios)
For my bios setting i have mostly everything on auto and for the
Mem gap (auto)
Mem remapping (auto)
PCI Allocation 4gb to 2.5gb*
Mem hole (off)
As for the msconfig solution i already had the max mem unchecked therefore that was of no use to me.
And running windows 7 64-bit theres no reason as to why the os wouldnt support 4gb considering I've had 4gb up until the OC.
I wonder if this has anything to do with the OC memory target of 1444mhz
while i believe the memory is 1333mhz.
I'd greatly appreciate any comment pertaining to my condition.
Is there anything wrong with the times or clocks on the memory? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I am sure this is the g skill I have, I am new to OC'ing but looking at the times would that affect it somehow. ( I thought it wouldn't since I didn't touch the times I left them on auto)
Alright so i tried out that ratio lowering but that resulted in a failed OC (PC wouldn't respond after power up), therefore I reset my CMOS, the loss of ram was definitely related to the OC because after I reset the CMOS the 4gb appeared again. Also my ram is DDR3-2000 PC3-16000.
