Hello guys, I'm experiencing a problem with my RAM. I had Hynix 4 GB DDR3 1333 MHz CL9 and it worked fine. Recently I got Cruical 8 GB DDR3 1600 Mhz CL13 and decided to put it in another slot to see if it works. I managed to boot and computer worked fine for couple of minutes and it froze. This happened all the time, so I had to restart it manualy. I went to BIOS and tried changing some of RAM timing values, and managed to make system stable by setting RAM multiplier to 1066 MHz instead of 1333 MHz but now my memory has frequency of only 1066 MHz. Can you tell me is there any possibility to have stable system on 1333 Mhz by changing certain values?

My specs are:
Intel Celeron G1620
Biostar H61MGV3

With these settings I have stable system:

14087276_10208853385104992_2010536291_o.

 

These are timings of Hynix 4 GB 1333 MHz RAM:

 

14114495_10208853385945013_2137429543_o.

 

These are timings of Crucial 8 GB 1600 MHz RAM:

 

14114670_10208853386105017_398995181_o.j

 

Thank you in advance smile.gif

Please post the part number of these two modules.

 

Modules with different speeds will always run at the slower module's speed.

It's quite common that same memory is sold with higher MHz but bigger latencies. So that 1600 MHz memory is not necessarily any faster than 1333 MHz memory.

 

Try tRCD 10 and tRP 10 first. Also speed difference between 1066 and 1333 memory is usually negligible.

Well, in that case I'm satisfied with stable system at 1066 MHz. Thank you very much for your  replies.
