Help! Kingston HyperX DDR3-1600 on Asus M5A99X rev2.0

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
First of all hello to everybody, that is my first post so I will try to provide as much info as I can.
My build is:

FX 8350 - 4GHZ
SAPHIRE HD RADEON 7770
KINGSTON KHX1600C9D3K2/8GX - 2X4GB
ASUS M5A99X REV 2.0
WD GREE 1TB
CROSAIR CX 750W
COOLER MASTER ELITE 431 - MIDTOWER CASE


The thing is - I build a PC, wanted to put Crosair vengance as a RAM but from the shop I was building it told me that these were only for notebooks (maybe they had some specific models) so they proposed me Kinston HyperX Blue DDR3 12800 at 1600Mhz, after checking it in the web I agreed to install it. Now the thing is when the PC arrived the RAM speed was only 1333Mhz, after checking different forums about the topic found that is the mobo that sets those values. Ran memtest86+ for about 18-19 hours w/o errors, then i decided to change the timings and voltage as tested from Kingston to 9-9-9-27 at 1.65v, done that got a windows error fail to boot so chose the "Start windows normally" option and the ram was still running at 1333mhz 1.5v. After digging some time in the Asus UEFI BIOS i got 1600mhz with 9-9-9-27, with 1.65v again fail to boot. Last night i left memtest86+ again first for about 9 hours and again after for another 3hours w/o any error.

The memtest pic is from last night - why is written 320mhz and CAS 1-3-3-3 ??


The thing now is being afraid not to damage something in the PC I turned all the Ram setting I have changed on auto. Boot as usual w/o errors, but now the timing of the ram in CPU-Z is 10-12-11-30 at 1.5v, but 800mhz. Is that a bad thing, should I be worried about it? And what is the easiest way to OC the ram for at least 1600 w/o worrying about the CPU?

Thank you in advance!

Memtest sometimes reads the memory settings wrong, I would not worry about that.

Have you tried this? Go into your BIOS, goto the AI tweaker tab. Change Ai Overclock Tuner from Auto to D.O.C.P. This should load the correct memory profile.

You can download the manual for the motherboard here if you need help navigating through the BIOS.

Just did that, set the timing values to 9-9-9-27-36 with auto voltage in D.O.C.P. In CPU-Z SPD still shows 9-9-9-25-34 with 685mhz and 1.5v.
Why show it differently in Memory and SPD? Which one is the correct one?



Thanks

The SPD tab is the settings saved on the RAM that the motherboard uses to configure the RAM. The Memory tab is what your RAM is running at. Your RAM is actually running at 1600Mhz. DDR stands for Double Data Rate, so your RAM is running at 800Mhz x2, CPU-z just displays 800Mhz.

It looks like it's running at the correct speed now. Have you tried running memtest again to see if you get any errors?

I will run it tonight for 10-12h approx. and I'll post a pic tomorrow. Now the strange thing is when I launch SIW software i get SDK mutex locked. Could it be something from the ram settings ?

Ok I ran memtest86+ for 16 hours w/o any error. Now I think I'm experiencing a bit high Vcore voltage - in the pic below are the stats. The CPU is idle now and I'm running a stock cooler. Should I be worried?
Also why the CPU-Z has named my CPU Zambezi and not Vischera? I thought Zambezi was 8150.

I think the high voltage is from AMD's turbo feature being enabled. My motherboard sets the CPU voltage to 1.4V with turbo, with it disabled it's at 1.3V. I'm not sure how to disable it on your motherboard.

Done, but I think there is no change in the voltage. I still reach 1.404 w/o even playing a game.
