how to overclock ram to 2133MHZ for MSI z77a-GD65

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hello. This is my first build and I recently just added 2 more 4gb Corsair Vengeance sticks (2133MHz) for a total of 16gb. When installing them I noticed in the bios that my previous 2133MHz ram was only at 1333MHz.

I changed the dram setting to 2133MHz and the system gets hung up and even BSOD sometimes.

I very new to overclocking, and i tried enabling the xmp setting as well and it still does not POST. When I switch is back to 1333MHz the systems POSTS.

I have an i5 3570K NOT overclocked at 3.4gHz. System says I have 16gb ram installed but its not overclocked to 2133mHz. Does anyone have any advice to stabilize my system at 2133MHz. Do I need to adjust voltages? Any help would be appreciated.

Again I'm new here so I just wanna get the frequency out of my ram that i paid for. Thanks. I called MSI and they said go to the forums (customer support at its best)

It is always recommended to oc them by youself. Set the timings, voltage etc.
But I think I know what the problem is. On Corsair's homepage the kit of ram only get 1,5V at 2133 and I don't think it's enough. Try to set the voltage to 1,65V if they not already are set to this by themself when enabling X.M.P.

But some people are more experienced than me, so this is maybe the problem, but im not sure.

Edit: Are you sure it's 100% the same model?

Thanks Zillerella.

Your right the my bios says its approx 1.5 volts for the dram. I will try enabling xmp and setting it to 1.65. And all four ram sticks are the exact same model.

Okay, try that and then report back pls smile.gif Or try to tweak the ram by yourself, because the timings can be better smile.gif
or start with adding a little bit of Voltage and then go up that way

Im a bit confused with this motherboard. There options to set frequencies and then there is this "My OC Genie" where you can also set cpu, gpu, and ram.

First I turned the xmp on and it automatically showed the adjusted dram frequency at 2133MHz with the timing of 11-11-11-30. At this time i had OC genie off. I then enabled OC genie and dram frequency was at auto so I changed it to 2133MHz. In the OC genie menu I also switch voltage to 1.65

I saved and rebooted and the system hung up and didnt even go to bios. I'm just confused on where I need to make the adjustments in the regular section and leave OC genie off or turn OC genie on and leave the previous section to all "Auto"

Hope this makes sense.

Sounds like conflicting settings when you turn on OC Genie. I dont like "Genies" or Auto settings, or Easy Overclock tools.

Set your RAM manually for speed, voltage and timings and if it boots, leave that Genie stuff alone.

Sounds like you are setting the RAM manually, then turning on Genie which is then goofing up the settings somehow, then its crashing, which is basically what I would expect it to do if that is what is going on.

Thanks Baskt_Case

I turned OC genie off and slowly kept upping the frequency. I have is up to 1866MHZ just with manually setting it. I also have xmp on.

When I went from 1866MHz to 2000 MHZ the system did not start. Does this mean I should not try upping the voltage manually? Thanks again

You need to manually set the voltage and timings to what the RAM is rated for on its packaging.

For example, if the RAM is rated on its packaging for 2133 @ 1.65V @ 10-11-10-26, then those are the exact settings you need to use. Dont expect RAM rated to run 2133 @ 1.65V to run at 1.5V. Not saying it wont happen, but thats not what it was designed to do.

Do you have a link to the exact RAM you are using? And are all the sticks identical part numbers?

But funny enough they are rated to 1,5V but I really dont believe that... What you say Baskt_Case?

If they are rated at 1.5v but wont run, I would double check all the timings, then try one stick at a time.

If it takes a voltage bump to hit rated speeds, thats a faulty product in my eyes. Theres plenty of RAM rated to run 2133 at 1.5v. I've got my G.Skill Sniper 1866 sticks running at 2133 @ 1.5v.

It absolutely wouldn't hurt a thing to try them at 1.65v, but thats just besides the point.
