    Default RAM Speed in H61 boards.

    I have a GA-H61M-S2PV rev 2.0 board, max speed 1333.

    But I noticed other similar boards depending on the rev they can OC to 2200.

    Exemple GA-H61M-S1 max Ram speed:
    rev. 2.0 : 2200
    rev. 2.1 : 2200
    rev. 2.2 : 1333
    rev. 3.0 : 1333
    rev. 4.0 : 1333

    Is this a hardware thing? Because they look very similar. Could potentially boards like mine OC to 2200 modifying the Bios? Has it been done?

    Welcome to the forum.

    wikipedia LGA 1155 says:

    Sandy Bridge based processors officially support up to DDR3-1333 memory, however in practice speeds up to DDR3-2133 have been tested to work successfully.[4]

    The H61 chipset only supports one double-sided DIMM per memory-channel and therefore is limited to 16 GB instead of the 32 GB like the others support.[5] On H61-based motherboards with four DIMM slots, only four single-sided DIMMs can be installed.[6]
    Footnote [4] refers to the following AnandTech article (page 3):

    AnandTech's conclusion says that there are very limited benefits to overclocking H61 memory, especially higher than 1600MHz.


    The following web searches might provide information about memory overclocking for your motherboard.
    • gigabyte ga-h61m-s2pv (rev. 2.0) review
    • gigabyte ga-h61m-s2pv (rev. 2.0) memory overclock

    Whether or not your motherboard can run 1600MHz or faster memory will depend on what features your Gigabyte bios has. Even though a similar H61 motherboard from another H61 manufacturer can overclock its memory, this does not mean that your H61 can.

    Check to see if any memory manufacturers' web memory finder application (such as Crucial, G.Skill, Corsair, etc.) lists compatible 1600MHz or higher memory kits for your motherboard model. I don't know if it's possible to overclock your current 1333MHz memory to 1600MHz because I don't have any experience with overclocking LGA 1155 or newer motherboards.

    I hope that this helps.

    I really appreciate your answer.
    I found this review ( Rev 2.0 ) https://translate.googleusercontent....BYisWcaDXt6VbA they use Sandy Bridge 2600k, and they have the limit of 1333mhz like me, that I have a Sandy Bridge.

    But I'm planning on getting an Ivy Bridge i5 non-k, and the same reviewer uploaded a bios settings video with a 3770k. Witch shows features that I don't see like XMP, and apparently they can select up to 3000mhz of RAM speed.

    That's interesting because none of the H61M-S2PV Rev's can OC more than 1333mhz according to the specs sheet. And Gigabyte only talks about XMP supported by Ivy Bridge on the Rev 2.1 and 2.2 specs, but according to this video the first BIOS (FD) of Rev 2.0, already supports that. So I guess the specs can be inaccurate. But I find weird that sometimes they add the 2200(OC) possibility and sometimes they don't.

    I will try to find confirmation of somebody with an Ivy Bridge non-k, with stable +1333mhz selected.
    Iíve thought, is the a software to disassemble the a Bios file, and see for witch CPU The Ram is unlocked, and the max speed, to confirm that non-k Ivy bridge can do this? Like OROM or UBU, does this software works for that?

    You might be able to find some additional youtube videos that deal with overclocking memory and running an Ivy Bridge cpu in your H61M-S2PV motherboard.

    The specifications page for your v2.0 motherboard says that it uses an AMI EFI BIOS.

    A web search using: how to mod AMI EFI bios returns results for AMI UEFI bios.

    Follow the links to win-raid.com where they have tutorials and they can answer your questions after you join the forum and create your own thread. I'm pretty sure that you will need to do the dirty work, but with their guidance. A good starting point is their Preliminary Notes at the beginning of their [Guide] Manual AMI UEFI BIOS Modding thread.

    Be sure to add a detailed hardware list to your forum profile in their forum.

    In the TweakTown forum your can create a detailed hardware list in the System Specs
    portion of your forum profile at the bottom of the profile page. Be sure to include brand names and model numbers.
    When you are done editing or creating your hardware list, save the settings.
