Running ram with all sockets filled help!!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I previously just had 6GB of GSkill ram (3x2GB) and needed to upgrade to 12GB because of some intense 3D software that i am running so i went and bought the exact same 6GB kit. What changes will i have to make because i am now filling all 6 memory slots?? like will i have to increase my voltages or can i leave them safely where they are at now?? i have them oc'ed to 1600MHz and i would like all 12 to be running at this speed as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!!

you may have to bump up some voltages for stability.

If it's two sets of 6Gb DDR3, you may have to bump the DDR3 voltage. I have 1.5V DDR3 1600 memory, but 3 dual channel kits. I had to bump the DDR voltage from 1.5v to 1.64v to avoid intermittent memory BSOD errors.

Just for example, I have 1 6Gb set of (3 x 2Gb's), it runs at 1.60v

I also have a 12Gb set of (3 x 4Gb's) & it runs on 1.55v

The major difference between the 2 are there timings.

6Gb set - 9-9-9-24
12Gb set - 9-10-9-28

The 12Gb set is the Blue Ripjaws.
So you may be able to run them at there rated voltage.
But I would bet you'll need to loosen there timings.

I know this might be a little over your head since it's a bit more advanced.

But when running multiple sets of ram (ex running 2 sets of 4gb ram for a total of 8) even if they are the exact same model... they will slightly differ in latency and other settings

To insure stability... you might need to increase vtt/qpi some (memory controller voltage)
Something more advance you can do if you run into problems is increase the stock tRFC (which is a timing you should be able to change in the advance ram section of your bios)

you dont have a severe overclock on that i7 so you should be ok.

However overclocking with 6 slots filled is always harder on the northbridge.
