But just to be on the safe side I would like to know how you have yours set up thanks for your help ceaddar
I had to go into the BIOS last night because I thought I'd disabled stupid Core Unlocker feature when I was in the BIOS after swapping CPU. So I reminded myself what I had done when I first got my RAM.
Had to use GoButton to get system to identify the RAM.
Set OC profile to D.O.C.P. which defaults it to 1333.
However you can go into another section and disable CPU IMC and that will allow you to run 1600.
I thought I was running stock voltage on my RAM but I was mistaken. It's running 1.654 on Auto. Runs fine for me but RAM isn't cookie cutter manufacture. Could be your Ram likes a lower voltage than mine. Of course since I disabled the IMC in BIOS, I might be able to lower my voltage now too. Not really sure about that.
I'm considering also of changing from 1T to 2T. My thinking is maybe I can get a couple of the timings down 1 notch. Not really sure but I thought I would give it a try.
Now for a really worrisome issue. The other day I was on watching the game(NFL) and my +3.3v bottomed out to .03v Everything seemed to be running just fine but not knowing what +3.3v is specifically for and understanding that voltages fluctuate I thought that it was still rather odd that it went THAT low. My PCP II alarm went off an I was
Anyone know what specifically +3.3v powers? And is it okay to fluctuate to that level for the short term; which was no more than a minute or so.
