Windows 7: My Asus Sabertooth 990fx reading RAM wrong and Video card issues.

My Asus Sabertooth 990fx reading RAM wrong and Video card issues.

My Motherboard reads the RAM lower than the speed it is suppose to go, when I have installed G-Skill Sniper 8GB 2x4GB 1600 Mhz. But when I manually choose it too 1600Mhz it wont boot. Also my EVGA GTX 660 SC 2GB's FPS has been dropping from like 100 - 30 in some Source games like GMOD. I have never overclocked my computer since my CPU fan can't handle the heat.

I have similar issues with an AMD rig I have (I would get BSOD), I don't think certain AMD CPU's like ram at that speed, in the end I just set it to 1333 and was done with it.

I am useless with AMD though, hopefully some AMD pro's will come on and tell you what you need to do.

This must be a different system than what's inm your system spec's. I assume you have some falvor of AMD cpu for the AM3 or 3+ socket. These cpu's have the memory controller embedded in the cpu, not the mobo. There is a limit on mem speed depending on amount of installed memory.

I have 16megs of 1866 on a 990fxa/8350. Best speed I can get 1400mgz, If I take it down to 8 megs I can get the rated 1866. You can google this and find several articles on it.

It's more of a QVL issue I would think

I have the same exact board my ram runs as rated and is overclocked is that ram on the QVL that could tell you a little something not all ram works even though it's supposed to be universal

I forget to ask what slots are occupied?

Slot 1 and Slot 3, Also I forgot to say that this is a R2.0 board. It is suppose to support RAM speed of 1600.
SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 - Motherboards - ASUS Also my Video Card is getting low FPS for no reason. Plus I am having BSOD like what Paul said.

Sounds like it's more of a bad ram then the motherboard I have the R2.0 and have no issues unless your ram is set up wrong in the bios and the timings are way off

if it is giving you BSODS I would try another kit or try a kit made by someone else

I have had no issues with my asus board in those area's as far as the video card goes that could be fixed by a driver

Or the ram is simply bringing the whole performance down

Well I have been getting BSOD on memory issues, and changing the RAM speed in Bios would cause startup problems
