Running RAM at 1600 MHz - Page 3

post #21 of 23
Thread Starter 
Ok, I used the quick settings, too much settings could be changed, only changed the 1st four options of the timing to 10-10-10-30, leaving everything else at auto, good enough?
Also, why is my RAM read as PC3 10700 under SPD tab in CPU-Z?
If I try to get better timings, what program should I use to test its stability? Also, how can I monitor the RAM temps?
Thanks in advance.

Setting it to 10-10-10-30 with the rest at "auto" should be just fine, hardly anyone messes with the other settings (except for 1T vs 2T, which I wouldn't recommend altering in your case anyhow).

The reason that your ram SPD reads PC3 10700 is because "The SPD is programmed to JEDEC standard latency DDR3-1333 timing of 9-9-9 at 1.5V." (quoting from Kingston's data sheet). PC3-10700 is another way of saying DDR3-1333, BTW. Don't worry about that, because Kingston has tested it to run @ DDR3-1600 using 10-10-10 timings, and will work reliably as such.

Programs to test RAM stability include Prime95 and MemTest86+. Monitoring RAM temps can be done via HWiNFO64.

Hi, I have this ram, Kingston Hyper X 1600 107000? I run mine at 9-9-9-24 @1600mhz. For some reason I don't have a XMP for my ram -- it is greyed out in the BIOS Memory section, so I adjusted it manually.
