16GB 2400MHz Overclock Failing?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just received my new "Avexir" Ram kit.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA0ST09A9868

Installed and running at 2133 (What my previous 8GB was at) just fine. When I tried to take the XMP profile to 2400 however it told me "overclock failed" after the restart and forced me to change it to the lower value I have now.

Does this need a voltage bump? Could the ram be bad? Do I need a BIOS update? Thanks.


Pic related: I know the case is messy, the blue alternating cycling LED's on the ram are actually really cool in person.

If you are running a SB 2600K... then DDR3-2133 should be ~ max for your setup. SB cpu have weaker IMC than IB.

IB cpu 3570K/3770K with a good Z77 chipset motherboard can run higher speeds.. 2400/2600/2666(+)?? but higher speeds can also depend on the quality of an individual chip's IMC.

You won't get 2400MHz with your 2600k. Be thankful you can get 2133MHz at all.

The IMC of the cpu just can't do the speed, plain and simple. I'm sure the ram is not faulty.

Don't feel bad that you feel like you wasted money on new ram only for it not to work at full speeds. You can carry the new sticks to a future build that can run the speeds later on. And it's always nice to have extra set of ram just in case.
