Corsair Vengeance 1600 running as 1333

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello Guys, How you doing?
I tried to search for are solution but all I could found was solutions on newer motherboards and as I'm running a 3 years old motherboard I don't know what to do.
First of all my MOBO is an Asus M4A77T.

Also I already had 2x4GB G.SKILL RipJaws running. As I did some research I saw that I could plug in the CORSAIR Vengeance as long as they had the same Voltage, Speeds and both are 9-9-9-24... so I did It. But when I checked the speeds the G.Skill is still running as 1600 but the vengeance shows only 1333mhz.

Also with the research I did I saw that this is common problem with the Corsair Vengeance.
I went to the BIOS to try to change it but I could not find anything releated on my MOBO Bios...

Can someone help me?

Thank you!

Cheers,
Lucas

I don't think it's possible to have 2 sets @ 2 different speed.

They all scale to the lowest if I remember correctly.

Yes I know that but they are the same speed. They both are 1600mhz, 9-9-9-24 and 1.5V.
But the Corsair Vengeance is running at 1333.

If you google "Corsair Vengeance 1600 running at 1333" you will find a lot of feedback but I can't find any with my MOBO...

Also I just changed at the BIOS the DRAM from auto to 1600mhz but it did nothing.

You can't run two sets of ram together on the same board. They have different drive strengths for one and different advanced timings. Its not just about the regular timings. This is a common issue for people trying to run two different vendor sets of ram. Sell off one set or the other and go with one type and problem will be resolved.
