    Ya, I set what Vcore I want to use, but if these guys have been teaching you DVID then you may want to stick with it for a while and just increase it that way.

    Well your memory is 1600, so it should for sure be able to do 1750 and 1800 (I'm sure it can do 2000+), you must have just had timings too tight or not enough voltage before?

    Begin with benching the memory at both settings. This not gonna aid stability so it better be orth in performance.

    EDIT: if you are going to use static vcore make sure the result in CPU-Z is the same under load.

    i just tried raising memory multiplier to 10, to get to 1750........computer wouldn't even boot to bios........just beeps.........probably needed to change timings or voltages ?

    hmmmm, maybe i should just get stable at what I have first ?

    hmmm, something weird just happened. when my computer rejected the memory mulitiplier of 10, and wouldn't boot to bios, beeps..........i rebooted, reloaded previous, working settings....but, got a blue screen memory management error.............then reboots keep kicking me back to defaults

    Timings for 1750 9-9-9-27.
    Yes I would get what you got stable first, save stable BIOS profile then tweak further if you wish.
