Thanks man! I will get on it tonight. Hopefully it will be pretty simple.

if you're having trouble getting it stable, drop it down to 1600, or even 1333, and tighten the timings. you'll see bigger gains on the AM3 platform with tighter timings at any rate

So here is an update, i got my ram to 1600, but im not sure how to get it to 2000. The voltages look right, but there isnt an option i can see in the bios to get it past 1600. Any thoughts guys?

No way you're getting to 2000mhz on AM3

Do 1600mhz, and tighten the timings. You should be able to get around cas6 or cas7 or cas8 at 1600mhz. Then just up your NB multi a few notches if you can.

So what should my timings look like? like 7-7-7-24? And, since 2000 isnt an option, would it make sense to return this ram for some native 1600 ram?

And thanks for the help!

Well it really depends on how you can clock them. I've heard they clock really bad on AMD platform but ericeod got the same triple channel kit to 6-7-6 1600mhz @ 1.65v on i7. On AMD I heard you can only get cas8 at 1600mhz, so start doing some tweaking.

Keep your divider on 1600mhz, put your NB voltage at 1.3v, CPU-NB voltage at 1.35v, memory voltage at 1.65v and start messing with timings. Try 6-7-6 and run memtest. Start loosening timings if it doesn't boot or fails memtest86+. Let me know how they clock, I was looking into getting them.

If the sticks clock really bad on AMD, get these sticks.

So I got my cpu oc'd to 3.5 on stock voltages last night very easily, just upped the multi to 17.5 and had no issues in prime95.

I am gonna work on tightening my timings tonight, but I am a lil nervous. I have only done one overclock b4, and that was on my 6000+ which was super easy. I haven't messed with ram timings before at all so we will see how it goes. I appreciate all your help guys, so great to have a forum full of super smart peeps to help a brotha out!

Tried this and it wouldnt boot, gave me a checksum error. (well, i tried at 7-7-7-27 anyway)

So I am curious, why wouldnt i get the ram you linked since it has tighter timings and i cant get to 2000 on these sticks anyway? Seems like a no brainer, is there something I am missing?
