Windows 7: Got DDR3-2133 mhz RAM for Christmas, no luck getting stated speed

09 Mar 2013   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I got the same problem as the topicstarter. As I can see in google, seems nobody has solved this problem with 2133 Mhz and the motherboard doesn't actually support 2000+ DDR3.

I'm going to buy new RAM next days. Does it has any sense to buy 2133 DDR3 memory for this motherboard? Is it possible to get at least 1600 Mhz as it was done by author, or better to buy 1333Mhz?

The Intel site says that Intel® Core™ i7-920 Processor 2.66 GHz supports only DDR3-800/1066 memory types. Is it possible to use 1600 Mhz with this processor model?

DDR3 RAM Speed question
Hi guys, A few months ago I started a thread about my PC rebooting a few times while loading windows, see it here. This issue still hasn't been sorted. So I ended up taking one 2gb RAM stick out and selling it to a friend (works perfectly in his PC) and that solves my problem too. So...

DDR3 RAM not showing correct speed
So I have 6GB of DDR3 RAM in my computer, and when I go into my BIOS, it says that they are operating at 1066 frequency, when they are 1333 sticks. I'm not sure how to solve this issue, but I think I know how it came about. I had a 2GB 1066 stick in there and for some reason when I took it out, the...
