I would be grateful if you could help me with the following..
I have an MSI 790FX-GD70 M/B with 2x2Gb DDR3-1600 Black Edition OCZ sticks of RAM..
From what I can see (for exampe in SiSoft Sandra), the speed of my memory is 1066 MHZ...
Now, I am not too crazy about overclocking, however, I understand that having a speed of 1333 MHZ is not exactly overclocking in this case, as both my M/B and RAM support this speed...So I have these questions:
1. What settings should I make to get this memory speed?
2. Would I be better off by increasing the speed to 1333 (but changing the timing from 1t to 2t, if this is necessary)?
3. Would the system be stable?
Thank you in advance
Welcome, I am running that same memory. You should be able to set it to 1600Mhz, 8-8-8-24-1t @ 1.68v. Yes, the slight voltage increase will probably be necessary, and won't hurt it at all.
If you want to run it @ 1333Mhz, then set the timings to 7-7-7-21-1t, @ 1.68v.
