g.skill ram asus motherboard

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Ok, please bear with me since overclocking ram is new to me. My configuration currently is:

CPU - Phenom II x4 955
MB - Asus m4a78t-e
Ram - g.skill 8g (4 x 2g) F3-12800cl9d-4gbnq CL9-9-9-24 1.5v

I am currently running at 1333 and want to overclock ram to 1600mhz. I have already changed the dram in bios to 1600mhz and it crashed. I changed back to auto (which sets at 1333mhz). I don't want to overclock using the AMD Overdrive due to not sure how this will effect my machine if something goes wrong.

The problem is that I don't know how (in bios) or what exactly (in bios) to change. I'm learning but my exp with computers is more the network side (servers and such). Hardware I'm trying to get more involved with.

Anyway, can anybody help with my overclock situation?

Thanks,

Chris

just up the ram multiplier one step and boot and see if its stable (prob wont be). then you up the dram voltage until the thing is stable.

Your other option is to up the fsb but this then overclocks the cpu nb etc and takes alot more to get stable. Go with option A.

also can you give me a link to your ram? if its 1600 mhz by default just set everything manual (timings, ram multi, and ram voltage) and you will run 1600 and it technically wont be overclocked.

Thanks,

This is the link to my ram:

Like I said i'm new....so, by "ram multiplier" what do you mean. Is that the option i will be looking for or will it most likely say something else in bios? Also, what timings would I change it to?
post #4 of 13
so take ur ram of auto first off so you can see the different options. then set the timings to 9-9-9-24 as the ram is specified to run at. you do this for any computer. Never use auto timings on a real mans rig.

Once you set the timings set the dram voltage to 1.5v so thats your still under spec from gskill.

then lastly look for the ram multiplier or the dram multiplier and change it to whatever makes the ram speed 1600. it should be 8x

on AMD systems they see more improvement from tighter timings then they do with frequency, if i where you i would leave it at 1333 and see if you could get the timings down to CL8

this is true but the man says he wants it on 1600 so lets get him to figure out how to even set ram settings manually first

Ok, I did read about setting the frequency to 1333 on asus and then overclocking which I'm up for doing too. whichever will get me a better performance out of my ram/cpu.

I went into bios and can change dram voltage from 1.5v - 2.5v. I will manually set to 1.5v. Next, the timing I can't find a way to manually change. The option i get is auto, t1 or t2 (t1 or t2 being the 9-9-9-24 setting or something like 7-7-?-? whichever. I'll look again when I go back in.)

And then third, I can't find the multiplyer setting unless you are talking about the cpu ratio.

you need to just play around with options. once you take the ram off auto settings it will have a section for ram settings or ram timings. it will be in there

look for things like cas to ras and thats where the timins are.

if you dont have that use t2

Download ASUS Updater for your motherboard and then update your bios. After doing that my G.SKILL ram was set by my motherboard right the first time.

Next do your research and search around to see what other poeple are doing and how it works for them.

Thirdly you should see DRAM timing under PCIE to change your RAM speeds and CPU Bus aka FSB.

DO NOT USE ASUS UPDATER.

if you want to update the board download the bios file, boot into bios, choose ez flash utility and flash that way. If for some reason you cant do that I guess use asus updater but a bios flash through windows is not the best way to flash a bios.
