Patriot RAM to 1600 Mhz from 1066 - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
It cold boots! And boots to Windows! And ran a Prime 95 Blend Test without issue! Temperatures a whole 2 degrees C cooler than with the XMP too (70C as opposed to 72C).

Those last suggestions did it. Turned it down to 4.800 GT, and and disabled overspeed protection, and BAM, working.

Now, we'll have to see if it CONTINUES to work, but for now, I am very pleased indeed

I was willing to try turning down the RAM to 1333, but I just don't have the money for a new Motherboard when the old one works perfectly otherwise. Couldn't justify it to myself.

Anyway, Amaterasu (comp) and I thank you deeply, Cyrious, for all your help.

Feels good to have a stable build running.


Well, with my luck, i'll be back in the Intel forums in a few days, moaning that it doesn't work with my attempt to get it to 4.0 GHz, but that is for another thread.

P.S. If anybody needs a listing of the final settings in BIOS, or the generic ones I started with, i'll be happy to post those for you, just add to the thread and ask.

Now you know why its generally not a good idea to leave settings at auto.

Ok, I admit, it was a dumb idea to upgrade so soon after getting it stable. But I couldn't resist. There was an H100i Corsair water cooler on sale, so I snatched it up in preparation for overclocking the speed. Installed it without any trouble.

Changed a few fan speed settings, put in some new fans (though used the EXACT same placement as with the old ones, same places on the mobo and such, and took out 2 up top to make room for the ones that are part of the water cooling unit). All other settings, speed, RAM speeds, voltages, etc are the same.

Now, attempts to cold boot fail miserably, and while it'll run at the settings if I set the BIOS and then let it boot, it certainly isn't stable. My friend, who helped me with the install, suggested that, since we had just plugged in another item directly to the PSU, it might be affecting the voltages, since when it boots, it starts with fans and such full blast, until BIOS tells it to drop to the speeds I have selected.

I'm not sure whether there is an initial voltage discrepancy or what, and I'm not sure what to tweak to fix it. I'm posting this here because Cyrious is familiar with my problem already, and settings regarding voltages and such have already been posted. The 3 new fans are all Cooler Master Sickle Flow 120s, replacing the 2 old Xigmatek 120s I had previously, and a crappy 120 In Win CeraDyne I had, at the back and side of the machine, and in the front by the drives, respectively .

I'm happy to start a thread in the water-cooling section if that'd be more appropriate.
