milomir did some testing with prime95, memtest64 and super pi and it seems to be stable

white owl It's not really about what the ram can take, it's about what the memory controller can take. Though I never hear about people degrading them so who really knows?

mattliston HCI Memtest is free, easy to use, and, well, no ad wall.




I didnt say get rid of ram. I simply meant remove the fast ram for the duration of testing overclocks with the slow ram.


Once you find what it is capable of, you can have some fun.


Or you can leave it at 1600mhz for both kits.


DDR3 ram is specifically required to survive 1.9 volts, though it is NOT required to be STABLE. That is ACTUAL voltage, and not "BIOS set" voltage. example, 1.65v in my BIOS (asus crosshair v formula z) is actually about 1.635 volts at the ram as tested.

tatmMRKIV to test for memory stability.... this specifically, without torching CPU

open that link with an adblocker though! adblockplus is great

white owl Yes, use a custom test and set it to use about 70% of your ram. I'd use 26.6 or disable AVX but that's up to you.

i don't need more than 1600mhz tho
what should i use to test stability? is prime95 good for the job?

milomir i've no idea *** i'm doing but i just upped the dram voltage to 1.5 and changed ram frequency to 1600mhz and it works?
can this kill the ram?
is there any way to monitor ram temperature?

it's using the same timings it used when it run at 1333mhz

milomir getting rid of the ram is not an option. i need 16gb of ram and this is the only kit i could get as i'm broke atm.
i'll just run it at 1333mhz to be safe then

thanks for the help guys
