Help on RAM overclock

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

I've been trying to overclock my RAM to no avail. so I come to you guys in search of help!

I have a 2x4GB set of these http://www.gskill.com/products.php?index=355, I've been trying to get them to 2133Mhz 9-10-10-28-1T (tried 10-11-11-28 with no results), I've tried upping the voltage to 1.65 (is that safe for these?) and VCCSA and VCCIO voltages to 1.1v and 1.12 respectively, but no matter what I do It won't even post.

Is there something I'm doing wrong? or I'm asking too much for that set?

I'm not the most qualify to advise but I read a lot that the 4th timing might be 1t+2t+3t - 2

try running 10-11-11-30 and if that works try 9-11-11-29 and so forth
someone mentioned in my thread that the first and third timing seem to have the greater effect

what i personally did with mine was i looked a higher rated version copied the timings and voltage and started tightening after

what you could do is
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231468


DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000)
Timing 11-11-11-30
Cas Latency 11
Voltage 1.5V – 1.6V

Give it a try, try 1.6v 11-11-11-30 and work your way down cas11 seems really bad but im sure you can get to cas9 smile.gif

Wish you the best of luck with your OC, im having troubles of my own hopefully we both get through it

Still a no go, 11-11-11-30 at 1.6v won't even post...

Do I need to touch any other voltage besides RAM? could there be an option causing it to not post if it's not at XMP settings? I'm completely lost.

Getting memory to run at DDR3-2133 with an Ivy Bridge normally does not involve adjusting any of the secondary voltages. So if it doesn't work - there's nothing that you're doing wrong, most likely memory simply can't do it.

Oh well, I'll be sure to grab some 2133+ sticks next time I upgrade, thanks for your input guys.

Try 1.65 volts, if you can't get the speed your wanting try a lower speed n tighten your timings a lot more 1600 at cas 7 is possible on some
