HyperX Predator Ram

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, I'll spit out my question straight up.

What speed should I be setting my ram to so that I can utilize the full potiental without overclocking it.

My issues are as such, My mobo is supposed to be able to handle up to 1866mhz ram (http://www.ebuyer.com/269076-asus-m5a78l-usb3-amd-socket-am3-8-channel-hd-audio-atx-motherboard-m5a78l-usb3)

My CPU is the AMD FX-8320, I have 8gb(2x4gb) of this ram, http://www.kingston.com/us/memory/hyperx/predator.

My CPU-Z is showing this after setting my ram frequency in the bios to 1866mhz,


I saw that my ram is supposed to be dual but is running single?

Could anyone give me some insight on this please?

Thank You

Ian Kettlewell.

That memory is designed for AMD A75, A87, A88, A89, A78, and E35 chipsets, and your motherboard has an AMD 760G (780L)/SB710 chipset.

But it should work just fine. You may have to make some BIOS changes to do what you want. Check the SPD tab in CPU-Z to see the default settings for your memory. Set your BIOS accordingly.

Running in single channel is most likely due to the memory sticks being in the wrong slots. See your owner's manual.

I had a M5A97 that would do the same thing.Sometimes rebooting would change it back,but I think it's Asus DCOP or auto memory function thats the cause.Setting all your timings manually should solve it.Check you have the latest bios.

Thanks for the info lads.

I checked the mobo booklet and it states that AMD FX series CPU's can handle 1866mhz ram.

I was looking at the ram slots, they were named as such, Blue: Dimm_a1, Black: Dimm_a2, Blue: Dimm_b1, Black: Dimm_b2.

It states that you should put the ram sticks into the correct corrosponding slots, a1 to a2 and b1 to b2 then later states to use the blue slots for better overclocking.

I placed the ram into the slots and it then produced a dual result in CPU-Z.

Now my question is, should I keep the auto select clock off in the bios and keep it set to 1866mhz?



What frequency is this running? I've still yet to fully understand how that works.

Thank you again.

DDR means double the data rate,so 910Mhz is an effective 1820MHz.You are slightly lower than it's rated speed of 933MHz (or 1866MHz.). You could leave it there or bump up your fsb or ref clock to reach 1866,but you may need to adjust CPU and HTT as well if you change the ref clock.
