Hello everyone.

A couple of months ago i used this video to help me out with my overclock Overclock 2500K.
The only difference i've got from that guide is the "C1" which i had to enable or my cpu wouldn't donwclock when in idle and my Ram timings/voltage as it is on the ram sticker.

I've got

Asus P8P67 B3
Intel 2500k with Zalman CNPS11X Extreme
Asus GTX 460 Top 1Gb
Anteq Truepower 750 Blue
Samsung F3 1Tb

and i had 2x2Gb G.Skill RipjawsX 1600 CL6 6-8-6-24 1.5v

no problems so far, but yesterday i got a new pair of identical DDR sticks, and with that BIOS config i can't turn the pc on i had to change the DDR to 1333.

How may i get it back to 1600 stable? Should i increase Ram voltage or something else?

Thank you all.

Try to increase DRAM voltage and see what happens.

So i've switched to 1600 and increased the DRAM voltage from 1.5v to 1.55v and got BSOD before reaching windows, then with 1.6v and BSOD and then with 1.65v and again BSOD.
Just switched back to 1333 and 1.5v.

Changed back to 1333, with "6-8-6-24 2, 1.5v"(Ram sticker values)
and CPU-Z shows me this Posted Image

So before doing what DrDeath said i just wanted to know if this is normal, mixed frequency and timings...

Its normal. (see the values in XMP column)

But, the whole thing is not normal. You should get 1600MHz @1.5V

:pfp:

Go to the Memory tab in CPU-Z...

Increase your VCCIO a little until you're stable. You most likely won't be stable with 4x2GB at 1600MHz, even if your timings got loosened to 9-9-9-24-1T. If you really want to see if you're stable at 1600MHz, loosen your timings. Once you're stable, you can tighten the timings a little and keep testing for stability.

How can I overlook that? :blush:
I think OP should try CL10 @1600. :dunno:
