Hi, so i have 1866 ram on my pc, but cannot for the life of me get it to run at 1866 without pc having problems. Now, it is probably a speed, timing vs voltage issue. can only get it to run stabily at 1600 mhz.

can anybody give me some advice and talk me through it.

pc: GTX 950 strix asus
amd fx 8350
asrock 970 extreme 4
8gb ram (2x4) crucial ballistix 1866
750 ts xfx psu
crucial 240gb ssd bx 200
cooler master 212 cooling fan

thanks

Hi there,

When you have your RAM at 1866, you're running everything in default settings right? I mean, you don't change the voltage or CAS timing latency settings right?

Does that RAM meet the specs of RAM listed on the motherboard's Memory QVL?

You mention timings, see note 6 where it says,
Quote:
Note6: When overclocking, some AMD CPU models may not support DDR3 1600 MHz or higher frequency DIMMs.
I agree with DB and you should reset all your clocks to the defaults, then see if your RAM will run at full speed.

Go here and check your memory for compatibility.
ASRock > 970 Extreme4
I see that board can go to 2000 so if you can;t make that happen then most likley your memory really isn't totally compatible however to be honest you wouldn't even notice a difference between 1866 and 1600 anyway, if it runs well why not just accept it. Also as Bill said here already the cpu may not accept even 1600 or higher frequencies.
