Hello,

Sorry if this post seems a little redundant, but go easy on me, im new here.

I have 3 sticks of Patriot sector 7 DDR3 1600mhz ram. But, when I go into AMD overdrive, it says my ram runs at a slow 533mhz. (X2, so 1033) I payed the extra $$ to have a much higher bandwidth.

So after realizing my ram was running insanely slow (And without sufficient voltage) I brought up its clock to 800mhz (at 1.725v, normal voltage being 1.65) However when I do this, I get BSOD after BSOD after BSOD.

Im a bit confused as to why my ram runs slow, and why I cant O/C it to the proper speeds? From what ive gathered, it ties in with the FSB somehow.

Can anyone clarify this whole situation and let me know how to bring my clock speeds up to the manufacturer speed?

Thanks!
-Jason

You're running 3 sticks of memory on a board that can only handle 2 sticks at DDR3-1333. Yes, that's right. AMD's fastest default speed is DDR3-1333. Put 3 or 4 sticks in, default is DDR3-1066. You're getting BSOD's because you're unstable with that high of a memory multiplier.

That's a bit high for those RAM's.
Lower the voltage to 1.65 again because high voltage kills RAM really easy.

Try with one stick at a time since you may have gotten a faulty stick.

um no. ddr means double data rate, which is why it is x2
