    Default Problem with RAM in EP45-UD3P

    Trying to get my Kingston RAM (HyperX PC-8500 KHX8500-D2K2) up to speed. This ran at 1066 in my evga 780i board with manual settings and upping DRAM V to 2.2V.
    I've tried various settings with this board and no luck getting it past 533 (it should at least run at 800)

    I'm running mild OC on the e8400 (3.6) and just can't get the RAM right. I've clocked the RAM back to the settings I had on my 780i after multiple attempts with different settings. Looking for a little help

    CPU-Z (1.51) shows:
    DRAM Freq: 533.3 MHz

    CPU-Z shows RAM clock DDR2 rate is double the clock so you're ok with 1066, you'll need to set standard timings manually to manufacturer specs.

    @Chike
    I thought CPU-Z did that (couldn't remember for sure *brain-fart*).
    LOL, looks like I was there and didn't know it.
    Well at least it got me up to speed with the BIOS options.

    Like Chike says, but to expand if you're running the 2.66D strap with a FSB of 400 MHz then you’re are running 1066 (1064) MHz. What you can do is multiply the fsb by the strap and poof! You got your memory frequency. But you knew that...

    CAS Latency Time [5] [5]
    tRCD [5] [5]
    tRP [5] [5]
    tRAS [18] [15]

    Reset CAS, tRCD, and tRP from "Auto" to "5" and it's now where it should be in CPU-Z.

    Most your voltages are left on auto while you are overclocking, some might be over volted.
    If you post a screen capture of EasyTune advanced voltage ppl who knows what's what may be able to tell you if they are set to safe values.

    Easytune wouldn't run in Win7RC x64 for me, the exe would start but the GUI wouldn't come up. I haven't tried it in RTM yet. I have the latest from the support site and the ver from the CD that shipped with the board. I'll try it later tonight...

    Include the following in your screen-shot:
    Memset using the SPD and ">>" tabs
    cpu-z main screen
    EasyTune6 --> TUNER tab --> ADVANCE tab --> VOLTAGE tab

    This post has a sample screen-shot.

    With your 400MHz Cpu Host Fequency, Static tRead Value = 7 for both memory channels (A & B) will increase your memory's performance by 3% and should be stable.

    EasyTune6 won't run in RTM either, GUI doesn't load (GUI.exe runs in 32-bit mode). Any other Apps that capture same/similar info.

    Here's the other 2:
