Newb has a few questions about RAM 1866Mhz

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
G.SKILL Trident X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C8D-16GTX
8-9-9-24
1.6V

It was running at 1333 at first so I started to mess around with the bios and got it running at 1866. At least is says that when it boots up.

1.When I am using OverDrive, it says: Frequency (932.95Mhz) per stick. Is that telling me I am not running at 1866 or is that per RAM stick? *Edit( In CPUZ, under SPD, it says Max Badwith PC3-10700 667 Mhz Per stick, but when I click Memory its saying DRAM Frequency is 933.3Mhz. So confusing to me... redface.gif)

2.Are these normal, or should I improve them in bios?
Row Cycle Time: 46 clock
Row Precharge time: 9 clock

3. I put the RAM sticks in the correct slots according to the motherboard, but when I am using OverDrive, it says I am using slots 2&3. In CPUZ its slots 3 &4. Can this cause a problem?



Specs if needed:
Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD5 AM3+ AMD 990FX (Latest firmware F11)
CPU: AMD FX 8350 Eight Core Processor (4.5Ghz)
GPU: XFX Double D FX797GTDFC Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 with core clock 1050Mhz/Memory clock 1500Mhz, 288.0Gbyte/s
OS: Windows 7 SP1
SSD: OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III (560MB/s read 90,000 IOPS) (510MB/s Write 120,000 IOPS)


Thank for your help in advanced!

DDR is double data rate. So 933 is 1866.

What about the RCT and RPT?

2. These values are normal.
3. Overdrive probably uses slot labelling starting from 0, while CPU-Z labels slots starting from 1. As long as you're in dual channel - you're fine.
