Memory Speed and System Temps

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Yesterday i upgrade to the P8P67 series Asus Motherboard. I LOVE the new UEFI bios setup! Question is, I purchased G-skill Ripjaw memory running @ 1600 MHz but my bios says its defaulted at 1333 MHz. I have Zero experience in OC, so what can i do to bump this Memory clock speed up to 1600 MHz? (easy way)

Oh one more question. Are these temps ok for this set up? This is NOT underload.

To get the memory to run at the proper timings you need to change them in your bios. Restart your computer and hold down delete to bring up the bios. I don't have an asus so i don't know exactly which heading it will be under so you may have to root around a bit but want you want to do is either set the timings yourself (if you know them) or enable the XMP profile for the ram which should do it automatically. If you can't find it take a screenie of your bios, post it here and we'll take a look : ]

edit: Also those temps look a little bit high for a 3.3 ghz clock, whats your ambient temp?

Do you have both fans on the cooler and are they running at near max? And I believe that's a nice roomy case with plenty of airflow and your Vcore seems decent... I dunno, I hear some chips run a bit hotter than others, it shouldn't be a problem but it may limit your overclocking headroom should you plan to go that route. If it "Bugs" you, you may want to try to reseat the cooler on the chip after cleaning off the old thermal paste : ]

Funny Anywho, no my Cpu fan is not running at max, actually according to my Bios its running at about 35-40%. I did go into an option menu called AI Tweaker and it has an option to "Force the memory to a Higher Frequency" I simply selected 1600 MHz and saved. I have the option to set it to 2400 MHz, you think that the memory would run way hot? What kind of difference would i notice?

Heres a screen shot of Temps after about 15 mins of my Rig being on.

Whoa, Your temps shot way up if you are still idling! It looks like your vcore setting went up which can cause higher temps. You are still well away from the danger zone of about 75-80C though. If you want a cooler chip you can turn the fans up but that comes with a noise trade-off.

Also i wouldn't recommend running the memory with anything higher than the rated frequency as that could cause problems with stability and data corruption.

Im going to take a deeper look into this bios but currently i don't see an option for CPU fan speed control. Not worried about noise.

Just be careful, make a note of any settings that you change so if you have problems or your system won't boot you can change back without resetting your whole bios. You may want to check out the manual that came with your motherboard for any specific settings that you are looking for.

Now that you have your memory settings changed you may want to post a more specific question in the air cooling forum, maybe someone there will have some experience with your specific CPU cooler and be able to compare temps with you.

Thank you. The only option i saw was CPU profile. I set it to Turbo so it would max out my fans if needed.
