Ram reset frequency to 1333mhz on restart

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I have just finished a new build with msi mpower z77 and have installed 16gb mushkin blackline ram 4x4gb at 1600 mhz and 9-9-9-24 timing's. The ram is an upgrade from my old dual channel kit had the 2x 4gb sticks and upgraded to another kit that was the same.
I have changed the ram frequency in the bios settings to 1600mhz . I boot into windows and open cpu z and my ram shows 800.7 frequency which is cool but when i restart windows its back at 670 frown.gif
I have also been running 3D mark 11 to check out my GPU and it shows that the ram in dimm slots 1,3 are at 1333mhz and 2,4 are 1600mhz, If you hadnt noticed already Noob here any help would be awesome. Will update sig rig soon if it helps.

If it is resetting back to 1333mhz on boot, it sounds like the overclock is failing in POST (could be the memory or cpu failing).
For 3dmark systeminfo just looks at the jedec specs of the memory, not the actual speed, so no matter what speed the memory is running at it always says 1333 or 1600 in the 3dmark link, or a mixture of both with 2 different kits.

The ram always resets whether i have stock cpu or if overclocked to 4.5ghz. Do i need to increase ram voltages or somthing?
post #5 of 18
You shouldn't have to increase voltages for stock, if the kits are rated at 1.5V or 1.65V it should work at 1600Mhz with that voltage. The VTT & vccsa voltages may need a bump up from auto.
Have you tried the XMP setting to see if that boots & reboots normally?

Wheres the best place to look for accurate ram frequency is cpu z ok?
post #8 of 18
Yes, the cpu-z memory tab is accurate for seeing the memory speed in windows.
Not sure why it would be resetting on system restart. If it boots into windows with the overclocked memory after setting it in the bios, it should be all good on a restart.
It is pretty obvious when it does fail the overclock, the system will start to boot then hang & restart a couple times before a failed overclock message comes up, doesn't sound like you are seeing that...

2 of my ram modules are these http://www.mushkin.com/Memory/Blackline/991995.aspx and they show 1333mhz in cpuz . And the other set is http://www.mushkin.com/Memory/Blackline/996988.aspx and they show 1600mhz.
Could this be the problem?
