Hi, I have 16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 and I was looking for help to safely overclock them. 4X4GB.

CPU-Z:


RAM:

I'm very grateful for any help

It says, on the website the timings are 9-9-9-24 if thats any help

The memory is rated 1600MHz why does it only say 446MHz?

Have you tried setting the XMP profiles in your BIOS? I had that issue with mine originally, the XMP *usually* fixes it right up to normal amount + best latency at 1.5V but I dunno if it'll work with two seperate kits.
Oh and DDR means Double Data Rate *I think* basically you double the MHz its reading to get the speed its actually at

You are running at about 900Mhz (CPU-Z memory frequency is halved from what the actual frequency/data rate is due to "DDR" (dual data rate)); you need to get to 1600Mhz by changing your RAM multiplier, something that may depend additionally on your bus clock. Available options are x4, x5.33, x6.66, x8. Do the math; 200 x 8 = 1600Mhz. 240 x 6.66 = 1600Mhz..... so on.

How exactly do you set up XMP?

Had a little play around in the BIOS and managed to get the max OC:



Its almost double speed but I still don't get a increase on WEI. Does anyone know how to increase it from 7.6?
