Riskitall,

Why didn't you get some faster Ram? Say 15000 or 16600? Those i7's have "Real" DDR3 IMC's. These AM3's only have DDR2 IMC's that's what's limiting the Ram speeds it seems. Unless they're just calling them DDR2 Standard IMC to ensure that ppl know that they can use DDR2...

I will be honest that seems a little wierd to me. Have you noticed any change in Bootup time when it does boot? One thing that I did experience with this board was that the MSI logo screen at boot held for a max of 2 seconds when I first got the board. Suddenly after the first 2 months it started holding for 4 seconds. I didn't really think anything of it until I started having more issues with my Ram. Erros, BSoD's And here's what tipped me off on the Problem....

I could change my tRP settings below 8. And when the MSI logo screen start holding for longer, I realized after a couple of hours of trying to get the tRP to go below eight and failing, that there was something wrong. I tried to do a BIOS update and got the ROMID Mismatch and didn't realize that it would brink the board. I RMA'd the board and they ttold me that there were a couple of broken circuits on the board.

Low and behold, I got the board back and was able to change tRP setting below 8 once again. So it might be something to look into with MSI because that doesn't sound right that you can't get 7-7-7-24 with your Ram.

Can you try to hit 7-7-7-24-31 @ 1333Mhz? If you can't then I would be calling either MSI or GSkill... Did you try setting your CPU, CPU-NB and HT all to stock speeds and still keep the 1.4v on the CPU-NB? Becuase if you haven't and you have the others OCed, it will be harder to hit the CL7 at 1600MHz.

My Ram is Rated at 2000MHz 8-8-8-30 @ 2.0v You not being able to hit 7-7-7-24 @ 1333Mhz with stock timings of 9-9-9-24, is like me not being able to hit 6-6-6-30 @ 1600Mhz, which I can and also get 5-5-5-21-26 @ 1333Mhz - 1475MHz+ with these sticks.
I can hit 7-7-7-24@1333 but i cant goto CAS6@1333 or CAS7@1600..I think its just that i got some bum RAM or just the synergy with this RipJaw lineup isnt that great.

They have both DDR2 and DDR3 IMC's.

Which set of Ripjaws did you get? You may have said it in a previous post and I just don't remember seeing. I know the set I have can easily do CAS7 at 1600 so I just wonder if there is another limiting factor.

Anyway, why did you succume to the Dark side? lol- You left us! Obi Wan may have died (actually killed) but he still visited Luke from time to time... )
I had a lot go wrong with my AMD setup and just needed to get away really.

I got the ram at a real sweet price Plus they will run at 1750 no probs

If theres any settings or anything you wanna see in my bios i got a camera and would be more than happy to snap some photos

edit..Something i forgot to add was when i put the ram at CAS7@1600 when i rebooted i would get cmos bad checksum error then it would clear the CMOS to stock then i would have to press F1 and load all my settings again.

Risk, nice on the Ram. Does that chip have the DDR3 IMC or DDR2?

Dir d,

Youmight wan to call MSI and Have them look at it. Like I said, Mine was acting funny and MSI found a couple broken connections that they fixed and it's been fine since.

I'm not sure if you saw this question before. But are you OCing your CPU, CPU-NB and trying to Run Ram @ 1600? And you can't hit those timings?

Is this the scenario? Or is Everything else stock EXCEPT the Ram being @ 1600?

Got a quick validation for you!

http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=791774


P.S. Dir d,

What does the SPD tab in CPU-Z say for your "JEDEC Timings Table" does it give JEDEC Settings for CL5,6 or 7?

Here are my SPD settings for my OCZ Flex EX. It does JEDEC SPD's from CL5 to CL8. Granted they are for much lower speeds but it still is supported....

The ram I have now is a Tri Channel kit for my i7 which only has a DDR3 IMC

Had the CAS 7 Kit of them on my GD70 and they were awesome too
