Aha... That is nice to hear. It will definitely make an update worthwhile.
Thanks again.

Thanks eclipseaudio4 and Kokin for your help. I will change the voltage back down and change a few things around.

Sometimes I want to put this ram into the MSI board to play around. Have had it up to 1750 6-6-6-18 1T. Hypers are incredible.

Evening, everybody!

This is my first post here and I do not have that much knowledge yet about how RAM works, so I am hoping you can help me out. I just bought this MOBO:
MSI 790FX-GD70 AM3 AMD 790FX ATX AMD, found here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130223.

I also bought this RAM for the MOBO: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231333

When I boot up the computer, I can get to the BIOS, but it does not boot any further than that. Is there something I need to change in the BIOS for this new RAM to work with my MOBO?

Also, not sure if this is relevant, but this is my cpu:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103808

Any assistance you could provide would be extremely helpful!

Thank you,

Taylor

that ram should work but not at its rated speed. im not a ram guru so anything i say would be pure speculation. did you manually set the dram voltage? timing? try fail safe settings?

Try manually setting the timmings and voltage for the ram. As far as speed it will NOT run @ 2133, 1800 maybe.

Really? That's good to know I'm definitely going to try this tonight when I get home. I was always annoyed that I couldn't enable it when changing the multiplier.

I do that in the BIOS right? Any idea which voltage / timing I should try? Will I cause any damage if I choose the wrong ones?

yeah, in the bios. your ram is rated for 1.65v so i would go with that for voltage. the timing is cas 9, so again, i would start there. i would try 1333, then 1600. you may be able to run it at 1600 cas7 but thats down the road. get it booting and stable first.

Exactly what the Doc said. 1.65v 9-9-9-27 @ 1333 for starters.
