Ram timming

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi new member here not sure how to use this site yet. Hopping this is in the right spot. I just finished my second gaming PC build but my first one was just really cheap parts nothing like what I have now. G1.Guerrilla MB. I7 950 processor and two 8 gig sticks of ddr3 ripp jaw ram at 1866. I'm trying to get my ram at 1866. It took me some time but I now have it at 1865.4 I don't know y its not 1866 its only .6 off is this normal?
Using CPU-Z the dram freq is 932.7 in dual mode. Do I x2 this number? The timing looks right. NB freq. is 3730.6.As for as the CPU the buss speed is 133.2 MHZ This probably don't tell u much but I don't want to put a bunch of irrelevant info.I haven't had any blue screen scene i had these settings but my son told me that it posted twice on him before booting up. Its never done it to me.Any advise would be help full and if i can give more details let me know and i will.

A 0.6 MHz difference in RAM speed is within standard deviation.

As for CPU-Z's reported numbers, you always multiply those by two since you're using DDR (Double Data Rate) RAM. So if CPU-Z is at 932.7, that means it's running at an effective rate of 1865.4 MHz.

Everything else you reported seems normal enough, perhaps it was a one-off glitch causing the double-POST boot.

It's normal. as you are running a 1866MHz RAM, CPU-X will report it as 933MHz (theoretically). Practically it will be reported anything in between 930-935MHz.

Thank you all for the reply. I'm learning allot. I'm going to keep these settings sense it seems to be running fine. Running games like far cry 3 on max with no problem.You know when I first built and bought the ram I saw in the reviews that I needed to set the timing on the ram. So I just went in bios and set timing to what the ram said to. 10-11-10-30 Not changing anything else I went to gaming and got a blue screen about a week after. Then after weeks of trying dif things and leaning how to reset bios to default. lol I found that bios would not take the settings tell I updated it. So I did and seems to be working good now. Really liking this mother board and will try to do some overclocking later with it. I'm sure I will be back on here with many questions when I make that leap. lol Just thought I would share what I found and wanted to say thanks. This is an awesome and very helpful site. Glad to be a member.

I made a video if you all want to check it out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yDHToSz6Mew
