OC's of the world unite! I need your help! What's happening to my computer?!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I had a problem a while a go where my screen kept on freezing and I'd have to restart. I posted a forum and loads of people responded saying it's to do with your CPU OC so I set my Bios to factory defaults. It still happened. Then some Ultra-nerd said it's to do with your RAM timings. He said try 11-11-11-30-2T It worked like a charm so I put my OC back and it still RAN smooth as butter since.

Today though I went into my BIOS and my target ram speed was 1600MHZ I wanted more just like any nerd out there and set it to 2133MHZ like it said on my RAM. Surprise surprise my screen doesn't even turn on after reboot. So I reset my CMOS and BOOM I'm getting the occasional freezing again. I have been tweaking since and now I have a stable non freezing computer. DRAM is reading 800Mhz in CPU-Z. Perfect biggrin.gif

I have a hunger for 2133Mhz though! How do I get my RAM at 2133 without it going wrong? thanks guys biggrin.gifthumb.gif

Voltage. What is the rated spec for the voltage of your RAM and what did you have it set to. Put it at 1.55v to start.

my RAM is at 1.7V now. Rated 1.5 - 1.6V

11-11-11-30-2 is on the box for the timings
post #4 of 7
1.7v is NOT SAFE.

what is safe then? what Voltage do you predict will run 2133Mhz? My BIOS had it auto at 1.66 :S
post #6 of 7
Im not sure, but 1,66 is safe, anything over that is "not safe"
Hope you reach your goal!

Set your RAM at its rated voltage, frequency and timings, and increase VTTCPU a couple notches.
