Dominator Platinum 4x4 GB 2133 Mhz [SOLVED]

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello OC, im fairly new to all this OC and stuff, so bear with me if i sound like a complete newbie.

So i just build myself an entirely new rig and tbh. It's really awesome.
With one exception tho. The Corsair Dominator 2133Mhz ram i bought, is only running at 9xxMhz when i look in CPU-Z.

So i hopefully can get a little help in here smile.gif.

Link for CPU-Z: http://imageshack.com/i/1x6p95p

Specs:
Mother board: msi z87-gd65
CPU: I7-4770k
RAM: Corsair dominator platinum 2133mhz 4x4gb
GPU: Radeon 6950
PSU: Corsair HW1050W
SSD: Samsung Pro series 840 256gb
HDD: Seagate barracuda 3TB

Mine does that to my friend smile.gif look in your bios for an accurate measurement. I have never had an accurate memory frequency measurement in cpu-z.

Well, when i run 3DMark11 my ram is also running at 666mhz (now 9xx after i overclocked them alittle)

So i guess CPU-Z is reading it correctly?

I still dont think it is. My RAM on my laptop is reading 532.1Mhz. It is 1066 speed RAM. My desktop does the same thing and reads differently. If your RAM speed is set to auto in bios try changing it to the set speed of 2133. That might do it. If it is already set to 2133 (or anything but auto) it should be running at that speed. Someone might want to correct me if I am wrong here?

It's DDR memory, so the effective speed reading will be "half" of your rated memory speed. DDR3-1600 RAM runs at 800Mhz... DDR3-2400 RAM runs at 1200Mhz, etc.

That memory should have an XMP profile that your motherboard should detect, and that will automatically tune the settings to make the RAM run at it's recommended specs.

Your correct. it does have a X.M.P setting, but unless i turn the "auto" frequency to 2133 it will only run at 6xx Mhz even tho it says "adjusted frequency" 2133Mhz. but now that you explain it only shows half.. after turning the "auto" part to 1866 they run at about 9xx Mhz so that work's atleast..

But now i have another problem... everytime i turn my ram up to 2133 adjusting the Mhz myself, then i get BSOD everytime i boot up. "5 seconds after windows has started"

Well, if the motherboard isn't completely loading the XMP profile, check the timings and the voltage specs for the memory. It's possible you may need to manually set all of that stuff for it to be stable...

God.. all that stuff i have no clue how to do properly.. and touching voltage and stuff.. i don't feel like wrecking my new gaming rig tongue.gif

I downloaded an updated X.M.P profile which solved the problem for me! smile.gif
