OVERCLOCKING PC3-12800 1600 MHz PGS34G1600LLKA2
I am new here, so i hope you will excuse my lack of knowledge.
Don't want to risk with self testing and overclocking so y am posting this question here:
I've bought (4x 2Gb) PC3-12800 1600 MHz PGS34G1600LLKA2 for:
Mobo: P8P67 PRO B3
Bios says that it's using 1.7V for memory. (CPU-Z is showing sth..)
How can i overclock this memory, what settings can i afford in bios ?
First, please be aware that our PGS34G1600LLKA2 is intended for the Socket AM3 platform. Because of this the rated overclock specs may not correlate. Please see here for more details:
With your system I would not exceed 1.65v.
Try a moderate overclock first. I would recommend something like 1333 7-7-7-20.
With the bclk at 100, change only the memory frequency to 1333, set cas 7, trcd 7, trp 7, tras 20. (1.65v)
If this is stable then I would increase it to something higher such as 1600 9-9-9-24 or 8-8-8-20 w/o exceeding dram 1.65v.
You can do a quick stability-test with Memtest.

Well i tried 1333 7-7-7-20 and it doesent work.
But 1600 9-9-9-24 works perfectly!
It is onlty that frequency is not 1600 exactly.. it i sth about 1698 MHz.
Is it bad if i let motherboart adjust voltage ? For now Auto voltage never exeeded 1.45V
Thank you again!
It sounds like your HTT/FSB might be a bit over the native speed. Hence the reason why it's not an even 1600.

1.45v is a bit low.
All in all, as long as you're stable there should not be any reason to worry.
