Bluescreen with new RAM at 1600MHz

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
My new Corsair RAM gives me a Blue screen when I play games at 1600MHz. 1333MHz seems to work fine. I am using the rig below.

How can I get it to stay stable at 1600MHz? Also, what is XMP? It seems to appear in my motherboards menu, and I know it has something to do with the RAM.

do you have the Voltage set manually? if not i would suggest that as i had problems with mine when it was set to auto, manually setting mine to 1.65fixed it.

Could have damaged sectors or something so maybe do a MemTest run on them as well just to make sure

This is the RAM btw: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145345

Won't it be dangerous to set the voltage that high? I don't want the sticks to fail or anything.I think at default it is at 1.5v. Should 1.65v do the trick?

Use the XMP profile so it sets the timing correctly and uses the right voltage, thats what its there for

Set voltage to 1.55V, because there may be little "voltage drop" on your ram slot. Or set it at 1.5V and check in bios, if its dropping.

My bios is set to auto and has my ram at 1.65.

I have a question though about the same ram the op has. When I run 3d mark 11 it says my ram is at 667. Is this right or should it say 1600?

Also my board recognized my ram as 1066 so i just changed it to 1600. Was there anything else I should have changed?

I think most people with i5/i7 just set their RAM voltage to 1.65. You *DONT* want to go any higher though, and most motherboards will warn you at 1.66.

Most DDR3 2000+ RAM runs at 1.65 which is pretty much just hand selected versions of your RAM that are overclocked at the factory.. so I don't see how it would be bad, I ran mine at 1.65 for 2 years now.

But he have sandy-bridge motherboard. Isn't the maximum voltage supposed to be 1.5v?

@OP, I have the same problem when I had AMD, I fixed it by setting the voltage to 1.65v.

XMP is a profile. In your case, it'll set the RAM at its designated, advertised specs.

For instance, my RAM is supposed to run @ 1600MHz on 1.5v with 9-9-9-24-2n. In the BIOs, it won't recognize the advertised specs -- you'll have to either manually adjust it or use the profile. Choice is yours.

As for the BSOD: I would STRONGLY recommend running Memtest using the DESIGNATED specs. They released a bootable-USB version, so now it's much more accesible.

Heck, whenever you get new RAM, always run Memtest.
