Bios wont post after changing ram timings

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've got an MSI 870A-G54 that's been working great for me so far but I just got a pair of 2GB DDR3 1600 G.SKILL Ripjaw series listed as having timings of 6-8-6-24. I plugged them in and ran them through memtest for a few hours and they were working fine but in CPUz and in the BIOS they list as 9-9-9-28. I've been trying to manually set the timings to the listed 6-8-6-24 but everytime I do the computer wont boot and then I have to clear the CMOS settings to get the BIOS to post. I need help

Raise your CPU/NB voltage by a couple clicks.

I've been jacking up the cpu/nb voltage bit by bit and it isn't working. it still just black screens after i save and exit BIOS and then i have to clear the CMOS to restore it again.

dont forget to up the memory volts as well....and it is likely your memory kit was rated at those timings for intel platforms, not AMD, and therefore you may not achieve the "rated" specs on them.

I've upped the memory volts as well, up to 1.72v and I'm not sure I want to go any higher.
