Quick noob question

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have a 3570k and I am new to the over clocking world. I ran my RAM At 2133 and 1.6v for maybe a few hours before returning it back to 1.5v and 1600. My question is, did that short time at 1.6 do anything bad? And if I have CPU trouble in the future would Intel deny my warranty because my ram is rated 1866 even tho its running at 1600?

Sorry if this is dumb or has been covered

You set the DRAM voltage to 1.6V? If so, that's no problem.

And no, you won't have any warranty issues no matter what speed RAM you are running.

You did not hurt anything by using 1.6v for your ram. If it is rated at 1866 then you can just use XMP settings and that should put the manufacturer’s suggested voltage, timings, and speed into bios.

I can suggest a cpu oc guide, but you don’t have your rig in your posts so I don’t know your mobo. Here is how to do that:

It won't boot if set to xmp. If I manually set voltage to 1.5 and 1866 it won't boot.

Then you have a problem with something. Either the other bios settings are incorrect or it is bad/incompatible ram. Go to stock defaults in bios, then try XMP so that is the only thing you have changed. If that won’t boot then something is wrong. You should be getting some sort of error code to tell you what is wrong.

Will try that. I ran me test when I first got my rig and it passed 12 passes

Rebooted and restored bios to defaults and then set it to xmp. It booted right up. I don't know what was up before. So can I leave it on xmp with no ill effects?

Certainly. XMP should automatically fill in you bios settings with the numbers printed on the ram sticks (what the manufacturer says the voltage, timings, and speed should be). It should run perfectly that way.
