OCZ Reaper PC9200 Cant Run At Stock Speeds

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My memory modules are supposed to be running at 1150mhz stock. I cant even get them to run at 900mhz. I have tried everything i can think of to get them to run at their rated speed, but just cant figure out how. I am starting to think i just have a faulty MB at this point. I can get them to run SLIGHTLY faster than 800mhz, but anything over this and it gives a long BEEP and wont boot. I have tried Linked, Unlinked, doesnt matter. Can anyone shed some light on what may be causing this please. System specs in sig.

I remember reading about problems with this board and RAM past 800Mhz. The description of the RAM it supports has always been a grey area. Saying it supports DDR2-800 up to SLI-Ready DDR2-1200. I remember some people got DDR-1066 to work on it with a BIOS update but most people couldn't get it to post with RAM higher then 800Mhz.

I would probably just return the RAM and get DDR2-800 or downclock that RAM.

IMO, you wouldn't see too much if at all any real-life performance improvement anyway.

Realistically, i should be able to easily run this RAM at 1200mhz, on other systems ive worked with, i have seen noticeable gains in game fps when overclocking ram. Ive seen other people have success overclocking ram on this MB, but for some reason, mine doesnt like it.
