Memory specs all blank and Greyed in cpuz...

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
This memory is fishy I think. First if run in Xmp profile it causes restart issues, and cpuz doesn't even see it on the memory tab. Only thong it shows on that tab is the amount of ram. And then the SPD tab does show undo about it like the jdec and Xmp timings.

I'm thinking of getting other ddr3 to test with, any recommendations for this sig rig set up? I'm open to suggestions about speed vs timings. I was thinking either another set of these 1600mhz cl8 or 2000 cl9's. Has to be 2x4gb though

Cool that worked, funny I thought I had most recent build. Anyways now to figure out these memory issues. off the bat, looks like cpu-z shows ram running at 1T command rate, where the specs say it should run in 2t. However, the restart issues Ive been experiencing are when the XMP profile is enabled, and when thats enabled the command rate is 2t, and that has issues. So what gives, im running the ram at 1t with no issues, but the xmp profile sets it to 2t (same other timings) and the rig shuts off while restarting... wierd.. I kinda want to test it with KG ram, but don't have any spare ddr3 anything. If I were to order some more, would you recommend sticking with these CL8 1600mhz jobs, or go higher like 1866 with cl9 timings? not too keen on what intel machines like...

What memory do you have exactly? My motherboard thinks that my memory's XMP is 9-10-9-28-2T while CPU-Z shows 9-11-9-29-1T. So naturally, I manually entered 9-11-29-1T because 1T is faster and it works very well. smile.gif I haven't tried 2T yet.

So I recommend manually entering the timings that CPU-Z shows in its SPD tab for your XMP profile instead of trusting the motherboard.

I think both of us have the best memory. I only chose this kit because Newegg was out of stock of the 1600MHz CL8 version. Well, I also figured that I'd probably get the best possible performance by a tiny bit over the 1600MHz kit according to this:

[bit-tech] The Best Memory for Sandy Bridge

I mean, prior to seeing this bit-tech article, I was looking for the best of the best and so I ended up being torn between these two kits (thanks to everyone's help here on OCN):

I have a feeling that the blue kit is the exact same model that you have. wink.gif If it is, then I'd stay with it because I think it's a badass kit!

Yuppers I got that one. It was the lowest timings i could find for 1600mhz ram. as far as the timings go, I did manually set them to 8-8-8-24-1t, disabled xmp in bios, set memory setting to standard, instead of turbo (still not sure what that is), and no weird restarting issues any longer. And man this 2600k is beast. 4.5ghz no voltage increase yet smile.gif
