Corsair Dominator GT [CMT6GX3M3A2000C8] Settings Issue

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi there guys!

I'm new to the forum, and i hope you could help me out with this annoying issue with my Corsair RAM.

First of all this is my gig:

Intel i7 2600K Processor
ASUS P8P67 Deluxe [B3]
Corsair Dominator GT CMT6GX3M3A2000C8 3x2 GB / 6GB Total <--
Windows 7 Professional 64Bit.

The main issue i've got which i don't even know if it's a RAM problem or Windows 7 issue. I just can't seem to get the "Memory Frequence" running higher than 1333MHZ. It should run at max of 1866MHz right? Everything above 1333MHZ Windows just refuses to boot up, and hangs at the Windows logo for eternity. Funny thing is that only the "Auto" Memory frequence setting in the BIOS is working, if i put it manually on 1333MHZ it won't work either.

like this:

Do i have to raise the BLCK/PEG Frequency from 100 to.. ?
What RAM timings do you have to set?

This is driving me nuts to be honest. Since my Noctua Cooler is blocking RAM slot 1, i'm using slots 2 , 3 and 4. I guess that's not part of the problem, Is it?

If you need more information , please ask!

I hope you guys could help me out here.

Probably, according to the manual Asus doesn´t recommend to run three sticks, either one, two or four sticks.

Try to run two sticks in slot A2 and B2.



Is the reason you run 3x2 a left over from a previous X58 system or?

Dutch link, but you can see the three sticks. Well what do you think is faster.. 4 GB on max speed or 6 GB limited to 1333 MHZ?

4GB on rated speeds for sure. Unless you need the extra 2GB, take that extra stick out. When you run 3 sticks, they're all being run single-channel. You need 4 or 2 sticks to run dual-channel.

Damn, i've taken one stick out and it just won't work with one stick in A2 and one in B2! Same problem that Windows is still hanging at the boot screen. Could it be Windows that just won't accept sudden changes in RAM settings? Have to stick with 6 GB 1333 Mhz i guess. Or wait for a new BIOS update.

You have bought ram that are intended to use on a X58 chipset board, X58 chipset board are tripple channel, you have a P67 chipset board, P67 chipset board are dual channel.


Ram speed doesn´t matter that much with the Sandy Bridge, so 1600C8 or C9@ 1,50v is good enough unless you´re into benchmarking.

You can get 8Gb for less then those Dom GT cost.


I suggest you return those Dom GT ram and get some proper dual channel ram for your P67 board.

Like these

or these

http://www.informatique.nl/455101/corsair-vengeance-8gb-1600mhz.html

or these, should match your board pretty good

or these, match your board pretty good too

Which ram speed did you run?

What timing?

What voltage on the ram?

I honestly didn't know i've bought X58 Chipset memory back then, i thought it was all compatible with eachother. They were purchased a while back so returning them is unfortunatly no option. Putting them for sale on the dutch Ebay "Marktplaats" for a fair price would be the best thing to do i guess. My own damn fault, but i'm sure i can get rid of them. Thanks a lot for the help! Will look into new RAM then lol.
