RAM showing correct speed

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have an x3 on an MSI 770-g45 mobo with corsair xms3 1600mhz ram. But the RAM is only running at 1460mhz. I can't figure out what I am doing wrong to get the RAM to run at stock speed or a bit higher.

I am not all that knowledgable when it comes to overclocking etc, could someone point me in the right direction please.redface.gif

what x3 do you have?

Are ocing by refclock?I looks like you are.

The ram defaults to 1333,so you have to set it manually to the next higher setting in the bios,but if you are ocing by ref clock then you will need a ref clock of 250 +/- to get to 1600.

Check out this graph to see how reference clock affects Ram/HT/NB speeds http://www.overclock.net/t/594829/phenom-ii-cpu-northbridge-ram-chart-am2-am3

Good luck
