    Yeh 7 premium 64 should be ok,
    Any progress or is it different memory time? I wouldnt wait too long if things arent working out.Did you consider 2 sticks of 8? or even just 8G total?

    For me myself and I, IMO, and using what you have, if I could get it running 1600 and not have to go through the hassles of returning it, I myself would.

    Unless you're into synthetic benches, the real world gains are negligible between 1600 and 2133. Not saying there isn't a gain, only that it's not what one would expect.

    And as kick alluded to, four sticks at 2133 on SB will take some doing. Timing and most likely voltage wise. At 1600 1.5v you'd get some tight timings.

    ____If you are overclocking, underclocking, or undervolting any parts, informing us of this and their values would prove beneficial in helping you.

    I looked and it seems that the board is not compatible with the RAM my computer runs the RAM but only sees the first two sticks not the other 8 gigs and also only runs it @1066 or 1333.... is there anything i can do beside buy new ram


    Thanks in advance
    You do know that no memory runs at its clock, all memory will underclock until you set it.

    As for your pic, it is set to XMP, so the memory is running at 2400.

    Did you run the board with one stick at a time, have you swamped them around ? I would.


    Can you post one shot of the memory tab (page), not the SPD page.


    **** After you installed the new sticks, did you run windows experience index, if not you need to.

    Post the Memory tab of CPU-Z and let's have a looksee at what the BIOS is doing with 'em.

    And are you comfortable or uncomfortable with taking them off XMP and instead setting them manually?

    The SPD/EXT shows his BIOS is running XMP 1.3, that means it should be running at 2400.

    "should be" You don't exactly sound certain there.
