Recommended Posts

I recently baught this ram and it wont even do what its rated, 2-2-2-6 @ ddr500...while using 3.3-3.5v's....here is my setup i tried all kinds of timings still no luck passed 225...everything else wont boot after it says backing up cmos it just freezes, blinks and doesnt do anything, ive tried higher voltages all auto settings, ive read other people with the same memory reaching speeds of 260...all the reviews i have read on it people have reached very high speeds, but my setup for some reason will not....i dont know if its my cpu or not...here is how my setup looks like...if someone could help id apreciate it..... this ram uses the UTT chips...i think so

make a sig.

does this ram really require all that voltage? I don't know.

All those other settings on auto, probably not right. You'll probably have to tweek them all to get em running good.

Do a search for your ram, here in this forum, or if your memory manufacturer has forums, and try others' settings.

Then report back here with all your settings, maybe someone will notice something out of whack.

Have you tried running them with the CPU Multiplier low and a high buss speed- i.e., instead of running 12x250, try 8x250 to make sure that your CPU is not the problem? Have you tried lowering your LDT multiplier? Do you have your RAM actively cooled?

I don't know your ram specifically, but I would try changing:

 

7 to something higher like 10

14 to something higher like 16

and the 6, 4, fast to 8, auto (or 5.5), normal.

 

Also, what voltage does the manufacturer specify? You may be using too much.

 

EDIT: Another couple real important to stability settings are the dram drive and data strength's. Have you looked in the OCDB here, to see if anyone has used that ram, and what their settings are? Try 8, 1??

Or you can scratch the underside a bit, and say they are non-functional and RMA it :P lol jks

 

But seriously, if its not performing at advertised speeds, then you should return it.

But don't you agree that no matter what ram you throw in these boards, most of them require a little tweeking? I'd rather try tweeking a little or even alot, rather than go w/o and wait for RMA.

oh no, by all means tweak it and all, i totally agree with that.. but if its not doing what its supposed to, even after playing around with all the possible settings at your disposal, then theres a reason to RMA
