Ripjaws Speed Issues

Capture.PNG 33k .PNG file Hi there,

I really hope this is an acceptable location to post this and of course if it's not then moving it to the proper location or giving me a guiding hand in where to post would be much appreciated. It's been a rather long time since I've posted anything in the sort of a technical question but I've finally got my rig where I want it and I'm encountering what I see as a huge problem. For the record my Sig-Rig is up to date.

I am running two sets of These Ripjaws in dual channel setup. I ran into some stability issues with Games crashing periodically with my CPU nudged up to 3.8ghz via AMD Overdrive as well as the RAM just slightly to where I thought it should be (1600mhz). After I lowered the clocks/voltage a bit everything smoothed out save for speeds are, of course, a bit slower but it's now stable. I took a look at my RAM and noticed that it was not nor had ever ran at it's proper speed. I'm generally seeing around 733-800mhz and I should be running double that I would think?

I'm competent in building and repairing but when it comes to overclocking I can bump up the multiplier and that's about it. I'm pretty sure I have a setup which should be able to support and be stable under moderate clocks but I just don't exactly know where I'm moving towards when it comes to the RAM. So, a little insight on how to properly get these Ripjaws to run at their proper speed would be lovely. I just moved up to an HX750 PSU from my old Galaxis 600 which seemed to have been dying on me and was giving me erratic voltages in my monitoring software where as this one seems muuuuch more stable, so I'm sure that was a contributor to the issue.

Anywho, any insight would be appreciated. I'm scouring the net right now trying to read up on everything but I just feel like there's nothing better than direct feedback.

Thank you.

I actually figured it out. I was reading the CPU-ID information wrong and wasn't taking into account that the frequency should be doubled and that is what the RAM is running at.

Also resolved my stuttering issue with video players/youtube by dropping the Core and Memory clocks of my GPU by 10mhz each. Guess enough reading will save you. smile.gif

Glad you got it sorted!
In future try to add an Image with the Image button (Looks like mountains and a sun) instead of attaching them. It will add the image directly to your thread and save people wanting to help from having to download it thumb.gif
