having ram problems and lots of confusion..

Recommended Posts

Ok so im running a 1055t (3.99ghz)on a GA-890GPA-UD3H and ive got something not right here.. i think..


at the moment im running el cheapo Kingston Value ddr3-1333 running at 1519mhz (7-7-7-20) and the cpu at 3.99ghz with a fsb 285


voltages r 1.56 for Dram, 1.36 for NB and 1.4 for CPU and its super stable and from benches, super fast..


but i wanted to reach over 4ghz.. but my current ram seems to limit that.. as soon as i go the next step 286mhz FSB with gives me just over 4ghz (4.004) it crashes constantly..


no matter how much i up the voltage.. i guess they just cant cope.. so i went and got some g.Skill ripjaws today.. the 1600mhz CL9 variety.. and i was assured it would run awesome..


bull crap i says.. it doesnt even get to 3.5 stable anymore.. voltages do nothing.. as soon as i move away from the 1600mhz rating, they produce errors like mad in memtest86+... im talking 4608 errors to be exact.. so back to stock i got.. 1600mhz and bench it.. to see if they atleast run faster than my el cheapo kingston....


fail... they run slower.. wtf..


i called them (shop) up and they said possibly dud sticks.. but i dunno... im not convinced..


im returning the sticks for a refund and id like to try some other brand.. but im a lil cautious now as they arent exactly cheap...


maybe i should stick with my el cheapos as they seem to perform perfectly..


any ideas?
