In reference to:

I'm having some trouble with my RAM performance and bsod. I've got my ram set to ddr31600 I've followed
some of the guide above this paragraph but have some questions. It says to set my DRAM frequency to DDR3-1600
but I don't see that option anywhere on my motherboard bios settings. I also have an option
on my motherboard to set the "CPU-NB Frequency" but it doesn't allow me to select 2400MHZ or anything...
the only options I have are [AUTO] [4.00x] [5.00x] [6.00x] [7.00x] [8.00x] and so on...
What setting would I put for that..???? Yes this is for the CPU/NB Frequency. I've tried to google this and
I really can't figure out what to set it on.

I do have the Front side Bus (FSB) set to [240]. I did check the HT link freq setting in the bios but the highest
it will go is up to 2000mhz, there is no option for 2400mhz. I have set the
correct timings to the ram section 9-9-9-24 dram voltage 1.50v MEMORY CLOCK MODE set to 667 MHZ.

What should I put for the CPU/NB Freq? What should I set for the HT Link?

If I'm missing anything else please let me know... I'm having a hard time trying to get my ram to be stable and achieve performance. I'm trying to get
the right settings for my bios and setting my ram speed to ddr31600


Thanks

J.Martin

After reading your manual, your motherboard does not support memory speeds over 2000MHz. It also possibly might not like your RAM very much if you are getting BSODs at lower speeds. If you are trying to overclock RAM past 1600MHz, you might need more DRAM voltage as well.
