RAM BIOS crashing after setting to 1600Mhz
Lets see if anyone can solve this one for me. Working with :
ASUS M4A87TD EVO - BIOS version 2001 (latest)
RAM - Corsair DDR3 4x4GB CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9 (CPU-z says max bandwith is 667Mhz)
Never had an issue until the day I changed the BIOS settings for the RAM to operate at 1600mhz. Playing CS GO and keep getting random crashes or freezes that send me through the reset cycle.
Frequency is set at 1600Mhz and Timing row is set at 41 like it should be. Voltage stays the same 1.50V --->1.500V - wondering if setting the voltage to 1.65V would help stability or if thats something I should stay away from.
Rechecked made sure I had latest Bios, reflashed just to be on the safe side and still am having issues. I know there are no error screens or any sort of overheating going on, checked components and updates. all is in the green.
I know I can set my RAM back down and TRC to 34 but hey whats the point if you got the power use it right?

Thanks for letting us know.
If 1600 is not a native speed for that motherboard then you must "overclock" the board to get it.
I don't play with OCing. But from what I know it is a matter of playing with a combinations of settings to achieve the goal. For RAM I think it is voltage, frequency, and timing.
So certainly start with voltage, but don't jump from 1.5 to 1.65 in one step. go .05 v at a time.
Also a good idea to post in the overclocking forum. That's where you will get your best help with this.
