Odd Timing Problem

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I've never heard or seen this issue before and I can't find any information about it anywhere, so here I am. I have this ram

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004GUT34E/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

And the Issue that I'm running into is trying to get the CAS latency higher than 9 so I can push the Mhz further. For some odd reason my mother board refuses to even POST when I set the my CL any higher than that. I've tried a bunch of different things to set the timings to run such as increase the rams voltage and such. It works fine at 9-11-11-31 and can definitely run lower timings than that but as soon as I set it to 10-X-X-X it won't post. Thoughts?

what mhz are you running with? whats your mobo/cpu platform... might not like higher frequencies

Currently using a AMD FX-8350 on an ASRock 990FX Extreme9 motherboard the ram is currently running at 1912Mhz Oc'd from it's XMP profile of 1866 at 1.65v with 9-10-10-29 timings.

I have had this issue in th epast when the memory is not officially supported by the board. I think they were hynix sticks.

The board would run with 4x 2GB sticks of 1333mhz ddr3 and run them at 1066 with the totally wrong timings. I couldn't even change the mhz +/- 1 or any timings, nothing without the system refusing to post.

Ended up buying different Ram from Centon, System would do whatever I wanted after that.

not sure if its the same issue for you, but you might check the RAM QVL sheet to see if the RAM is at least close to something on there.

Hope this helps!

they might just not be binned that well. raising cas and going higher freq won't make the pc faster

It could be that, but the thing is I'm pretty sure it's stable where it's at right now. I know it won't make my pc faster by raising the timings and having a higher frequency, I want to do it so that I can raise my FSB even higher. I'm positive it's the memory that's holding me back. On the note of the QVL sheet, My ram isn't on the list but it supports much higher frequency ram. makes me think I should have stuck with a Asus or Gigabyte board if I thought it was going to be picky about the rams brand! rolleyessmileyanim.gif
