your ram is actually running at 1066mhz, its 533x2 (double data rate). so you will have to manually set it in the bios, make sure your voltage is set at the proper setting that OCZ state first, then adjust the ram to 1600mhz. let me know how you get on.

EDIT: IF your ram has major issues running at 1600mhz, then consider taking a look at this forum thread i just found through googling your ram model number. NOTE that an RMA is always the last resort, but hopefully not for you

ocz3g1600lv2g no boot at 1600 - OCZ Forum

OH and when you adjust the ram speed to 1600mhz, make sure you set all the timings onto AUTO first, that way it has the best chance of booting at 1600mhz.

your ram volt should be at 1.65v

this is the specs on them

OCZ Technology | Products | Memory | OCZ DDR3 PC3-12800 Gold Low-Voltage Triple Channel
quick question you sure its not by 3??? since its tripple channel?

well i got it thank you. If i never posted i would of never found out my ish was running low, always thought it was x3.

I also updated my bios cause it said improved memory capability.

and improved my score
NOW thats more like it! now your running the kick butt i7 speed!lol did your WEI increase at all?

triple channel is the 'link speed' between the ram modules, earlier core 2 and pentium setups run a dual channel (128bit transfer interface) and now the i7 uses tri channel (192 or 256bit? cant remember) which is what also makes the i7 setup so great! it does not have anything to do with the actual speed of the memory. cpu-z now shows around 800mhz, which is ddr 1600. if it was a ddr2 800mhz ram it would show 400mhz, which is the term double data rate.

it should have a section where all the voltages are, like the cpu, fsb,ect. and it will have mem voltage or something. ddr/ddr2/ddr3 have different voltage tolerances but yours is rated at 1.65v. you need to find it incase it is over-volting your ram, which can either destroy it or reduce its life span. it has to be in there somewhere, and i highly recommend you find it and set it to 1.65v.

well cpu z says 1.5v across the bottom, that should be picking up an accurate reading correct? or should i not depend on that?

NO that SPD tab is simply a example chart, it is not your actual values. that is why it does not show the speeds. i gave you the link to your ram, even there it states 1.65v.

and thats the only thing i change?

also seems my temps went up a few Celsius higher after that.

Im also guessing the voltage was lower than that because when i first turned my memory up to 1600 mhz my temp went up and now when i turned it to 1.65v it also went up again...

Naturally.

Higher power = higher temperature. I'm sure it's fine.

That's why performance RAM like OCZ has heat spreaders.
