Thread: Ram Capped @1600 on Fatal1ty H97 Perfomance ???

    Default Ram Capped @1600 on Fatal1ty H97 Perfomance ???

    For the life of me I cannot seem to get my Ram to its rated spec speed of 1833MHz on this board.
    I found the OC tweaker dram settings in the BIOS and clicked on the XMP profile for 1833, all fields get the blue dot, but the speed doesn't stick.
    Timings seem correct, but the speed is maxed at 1600. There is nowhere to set the SPD manually it seems.
    (I just migrated from a Z77 MSI board which was really easy to set the rated speed of my ram.)
    Seems ridiculous that the ram speed would be intentionally capped.

    any help with this would be appreciated.

    System build specs:
    4790-k I7
    8 GB DDR3 G-Skill 1833 (capped @ 1600 on this board)
    H97 Fatal1ty Performance
    Windows 7 Pro 64bit

    I wanted to add that I updated BIOS to the lastest version, which didn't help this issue.

    I'm sorry to tell you, but with a H97 chip set there is no overclocking of RAM and CPU possible. If you want to do that, then you need a motherboard with a Z97 chip set. That's why it was working on your Z77 system.

    it might be the limitation of the h97 chipset? this was the case for b85/h81/h87

    you should be able to oc the cpu though

    In the mean time I found this review of your mobo. Overclocking of the CPU is possible (the guys at Intel won't like this), they run a i7-4770K @ 4.6 GHz. But memory speed is limited to 1600.
