Is 1600 Ram really 800? And CPU temp.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Ok, so I have had my computer for about 6 months now. I have never figured out the RAM issue i have been having.

Is DDR3-1600 Ram supposed to read at 800MHz? Check my sig for the specifics of my system.



And also, two programs say my CPU is on fire, but the one that came with the mobo says its ok. Which should I trust?

1 - Yea that's normal.

2 - Your CPU is not on fire. If it was as hot as those programs said it would be fried. Trust the motherboard program. Also, try HWMonitor. It seems to read accurate temps.

ohhh right. So does that mean 1600MHz is just a lie? Or... haha...

Oh I wanted to ask about timings too. I looked at some other posts. 7-7-7-20 seems popular, with about 1.8V ... but Idk. didn't notice much of a difference when I adjusted them. The sticker says 8-8-8 @ 1.65v so thats what I threw it at right now. with a 2t command rate. Read 1t is better as well as ganged mode.

You times it by 2, so 800 x 2 = 1,600mhz. That is why they say it is double data rate ram. This should help you out.

Don't wanna make a new thread about this so I'll just ask on this one.

RAM, I wanna buy more. Which is better?

I think the first one is better, but I just wanna make sure it is worth the 10 more bucks. You know?

Better: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820178265

Or better? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820178238

Again I think the XLR8 is the better option, just wanna double check

yup, the XLR8 is better in every way. better Mhz, and tighter timings.

The XLR8 1600 CL8 would be much better even for the increased price. I suggest you go for that. Mixing performance 1600Mhz memory with other performance 1600Mhz memory (especially with the same settings) is certainly a lot better than mixing the performance memory with some generic 1333Mhz memory.
