Problem setting RAM to default timings

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi, I have a problem setting my RAM timings to stock indicated timings. I bought 2x G.Skill F3-12800CL7D-4GBXM RAM modules with stock timings of 7-8-7-24-2N @ 1.5V. The problem is that when I went into the BIOS and set primary timings to those I just specified the PC freezes and doesn't POST. I tried boosting voltage to 1.6V but it still didn't work.

I don't have much experience with RAM, so I have a hard time trying to find out what is wrong. It is clearly indicated on the package that those are the timings of the modules however when entering the BIOS I find that everything is on AUTO and the timings have been set to 9-9-9-28-2...

I'm using a Asus Maximus V gene + I7 3770k.

Here are some images of the settings:







Here is a link to the RAM page:

Any help would be sincerely appreciated.

Edit: I forgot to mention I set the frequency to 1600Mhz rather then on AUTO.

Have you tried loading the XMP profile?

When you set 7-8-7-24 at DDR3-1600, try fixing Command Rate at 2T, Ref Cycle Time at 100 and CAS Write Latency at 8 to see if it yields more stability.

Thank you for your reply.

What I did was reset to BIOS defaults, then I:

1- Loaded XMP profile, saved and didn't work (continued showing black screen, wouldn't POST)

2- Loaded defaults again, used your recommended settings and then saved but that also didn't work (won't POST)

3- Loaded defaults again, loaded xmp profile and also changed to the recommended settings but that also failed =(

I still have no idea why this is happening. Do you have anymore suggestions? It's disappointing that it won't run at stock timings =S
