I have 2, shall I disable CFX?
No shouldnt have to.
Windows 7 64bit runs perfectly fine on 2Gigs 16 isnt needed but ram is cheap so why not. 8gigs runs great but mix slow ram with fast u will only be able to run at slow ram speed
As far as your RAM if you mix ram it will clock to slower ram speeds. Nature of the beast, just runt the 1600. you don't need 16GB of ram, I think?!?!?!? I don't at least!!!![/QUOTE]
Was that directed at me?
I've decided to go with 8gigs of the 1600. Its ripjaws X. I'm gonna try and push up towards 1866 or higher if I can. I saw a couple of reviews that made it to 2133.
I run my RipjawX's at 1866 effortlessly and they are rated at 1600's.
Cool. So it can be done.
Or you could just buy 1866 sticks and see what it takes to get them to boot at that.
I'm kindof going for price here. Ripjaws X are 29.99 right now.
And I already bought em. They should be here tomorrow or the next day.
I really should learn to read more. Good luck with the oc
Are you new to the site?
You could say that. Been lurking for awhile, finally decided to start posting.
Welcome to TPU
Thanks, I thought you were going to direct me to posts for new people to not seem dumb on the forum lol.
LOLOLOLLL, you stole the words from my fingers.
Haha! Welcome DerP! Feel free to post you system specs so we can put you under the microscope
Welcome to TPU derp!
Been playin around with Superspeed Supercache. Really does make a difference with all around use
Hey guys, a quick question - will my athlon II 640 work with 1600MHz memory? I mean, will the memory run at 1600 speeds rather than athlon's prefered 1333 at stock cpu clocks? Or will I have to overclock the cpu to read those memory speeds? The ram kit is Corsair vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) 1600MHz 9-9-9-24 1.50V ver 2.12
Noone can really give you a y/n answer to that. Its overclocking the IMC and every chip is different.
As Jr said, it depends on your hardware setup. However, I detect that you have a question about memory dividers?
setting the ram speed is mobo dependent
And FSB dependant!
Well im sayin with ram dividers etc. Current boards such as 800/900 series chips u can set the ram to op at intended speed
oh so it's okay then, tomorrow I'll be picking up a Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3. thanks for the answers.
I run mine at 2200 but those are 2000CL9 rated
