help evalueating ram speed/timmings and determining if I bought crap

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So I will provide you with my specs first.

It's kingstone hyperX ram
I got 2x2G stick in a dual channel setup.

The speed is 1333MHz
The timings are 9-9-9-24

I was able to OC them to 1600MHz but without increased voltage it turned out to be to unstable to run WoW.

Now I read that these timmings and the cripple speed of 1333MHz would hold back most systems.

The thing is that I never bothered to change Ram timings and do not know if this ram is worth keeping, is it?

I've had this computer for over a year now and I am considering bringing some upgrades and I think ram has a prio over other things so if I would be better off buying new sets of ram please say so

I could buy an 8gig 1600MHz 9-9-9-28 set for 49 euro

though I am confused by the mobo;s specs

4 x 1.5V DDR3 DIMM sockets supporting up to 16 GB of system memory (Note 1)
Dual channel memory architecture
Support for DDR3 2000(OC)/1333/1066 MHz memory modules

means it can run 1600MHz right?

1333 9-9-9-24 is basically generic RAM
Since it's JEDEC/generic standard don't expect an OC out of it... ever. The RAM could be binned so low to the point where the ICs will really not manage an overclock.

DDR3-1600 is as cheap most of the time anyway.

I just fiddled around with the timings and it's 8-9-8-24 now and it ran prime95 for 15 minutes straight without crashing.

Its just saying you cant manually set 2000mhz in the bios for ram speed, you have to OC to get it on AMD systems, it's also saying your board can hold a max of 4 Ram slots at a max of 16gb total, so if that 8gb stick is single i don't no if it would work.
