Corsair Vengeance Heat

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Ok a quick question about Corsair Vengeance RAM. I have 8GB of 1866Mhz in the system listed in my sig, but at the moment it is running at 1333Mhz, not what is listed on the box. (this is the first system i've built which isn't dead simple) I'm just wondering if I turn the memory frequency up to the 1866Mhz it should be in the BIOS could it mess up the system/the RAM burn out/produce too much heat?
At the moment I only have an intel stock CPU cooler, my H70 listed in sig had a dead pump so I was worried about heat in CPU, so its only running stock at the moment.
Basically I'm asking did the system select 1333Mhz for the memory frequency due to higher frequencies failing/being more likely to break or something?

My old HyperX set used to run hoooooooooot lol. Really not a problem with my Vengeance set, barely even get warm tbh - regardless of what timings or voltages i run them at, the heatsinks are pretty great.

Don't know why the system chooses 1333mhz as default but it's the same on my rig (and most other peoples as far as i know). It shouldn't be a problem whatsoever to run them at 1600 or 1866. Just have to set it manually in the bios and away you go.

It has nothing to do with your system downclocking your ram in order to protect your system.

No. Thats just the mainboard's default setting. Go into bios and set it to the right specs. You should be fine. I slight overclock of your cpu may be required to get your ram to 1866, but just check your cpu temp afterwards (with real temp or similar) to make sure that your stock cpu cooler is up to the overclock.

There should be a setting in the motherboard to up the speed to 1866....it defaults to 1333 because that is the default speed that the processor can handle.

Most DDR3 nowadays doesn't get hot even under load. Voltage is so low anyways.

Thank you, for all replies, I fiddled a bit and found that the XMP profile was set to something other than the RAMs profile1, put that on and it is now running at correct frequency without an overclock.

One thing though, I really don't see any difference, I kinda hoped it would speed up boot up, I was hoping for a fast boot up on my machine seeing as how much it cost, but its quite slow, can be a minute or two before it reaches the desktop :S any reason for that?

Even for a HDD 1-2 minutes boot up time is way too much time. Doesn't sound ram related.

How many programs and what kind of programs are you running on start-up and in the taskbar? In my experience you can sometimes get program conflicts which can slow boot time, especially when running various programs that monitor temps and stuff like that. I've had a lot of trouble running things like speedfan for example. May even be somehthing in the bios that needs changing (perhaps something in the sata/hdd section).

Only other reason i can think of is that you have a heavily fragmented HDD.

Probably worth starting a new thread in a relevant section if it's really a problem!

The ud4 still has a standard bios, the uefi bios I had with an msi p67 board was much faster getting to the desktop, I kinda hope GB still comes out with one to try.
An SSD also makes the boot faster once it hits loading windows.
As far as heat on the modules at 1.65V they don't even really need heatsinks. I took the spreaders off a dominator kit & they've been running in the folding rig for months, no warmer w/o the heatspreaders than they were with them on.

Ok, well it can be faster/slower from time to time, the system is very fast once booted.

The system is a week old and doesn't have much data on it, its got oblivion, AVG antivirus, COMODO firewall, apart from that theres google chrome, all stuff that comes with windows 7, drivers that came with motherboard, drivers that came with graphics card and MSI afterburner. Thats everything I can think of, I don't think i've even put flash player or quicktime or anything like that on it yet.

EDIT : I forgot CPU-Z thats on there too, and TES Oblivion.

ANOTHER EDIT : Could Windows 7 updating have anything to do with it?

After the post is where an SSD makes the difference, programs & services almost load like they were running in the background.
For example the balls that spin up to make the microsoft logo, with an HDD the logo forms & pulses a bit then it goes to desktop, with a good SSD I go to the desktop before the logo even forms up.

Right, I'm planning to get an SSD sometime after summer and then moving operating system to it but for the time being I want to know whats causing my system to boot slowly on an HDD at this early stage.
