Can't overclock?!? (I don't know where to post this)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've looked all over the internet for a solution to my problem. I haven't found it yet. So I'll ask it here because I don't know where to post this.

I have a MSI Z77A-G45, i7-3770K, and G.skill Ram said to be capable of DDR3 2133. I really want to overclock the ram to 2133 to see it's potential. I know this might not make a HUGE difference, but I want my money's worth from all my components. I can overclock my i7 somewhat well. But whenever I try to overclock my RAM in the bios, my system will not boot. When I restart, my system will just keep turning off and on. So whenever it does this I must turn off the power switch on my PSU and turn it back on for my computer to work. You can see that this get's annoying.

So, I'm wondering if there is a software, or a person who has dealt with this problem before. I really want my RAM to see full potential.

NOTES: My RAM is currently running at DDR3 1600.
My RAM part number is: F3-17000CL11-4GBXL. Or so that's what CPU-Z tells me.
CPU is running at 3900MHz if that is important.

So what are you actually doing when you're trying to get your RAM to run at the correct speeds?

Have you entered all of the speeds, timings and voltages manually?

Did you enable the memory's XMP profile in the BIOS?

I have went to the bios and enabled XMP, and I went to the bios and set the RAM speed manually. Everything else is on auto.
