    Can I upgrade DDR3 PC12800 to DDR3 PC1600?

    Hello guys I am using Intel Core i7 930 with the windows 7. And I want to upgrade my DDR3 PC12800 to DDR3 PC1600. but i am unable to do this. I want to run 2100 MHz+ with the nice timings. Is it possible to do this with Gskill tridents? I am also looking for Thermalright HR-07 heatsink to increase cooling to observe that it will help for overclock my current Gskill PC12800 RAM to 2100 MHz+. Please help me to solve this query. I am waiting for your replies. Thank you.

    Hello I am facing similar kind of problem. I set a 120 mm fan openly on Silverstone DDR3 memory and I have the similar results. When I try for 2000+MHz, itís unbootable. I try that, but then it stops. I do not think the ram is overheating. It Works perfectly stable at 1910 MHz with intervals of 8-8-8-24-1T with the CPU at 4GHz. This is a great set up for the game. I think my RAM may be the bottleneck in my system. I thought I could pay money for a set of Gskill tridents to observe if the system can compress more high-speed CPU through faster RAM. I read that can operate stably at 2100 MHz in the air.

    If you have almost reached the point of diminishing returns here. Higher overclocking to 4.4 GHz will not give much of a benefit. Therefore, to achieve a specific CPU OC higher than it's not worth the money. If I play a game, the real part should be seeing is the GPU if you are looking to improve the overall system, ditch the SSD of your. The Vertex 2 OCZ SSD is actually not so fast. If you really want to make an improvement, an upgrade from Crucial SSD C300 or C400 SSDs to be released in a few months will be more profitable than improving the CPU or RAM.

    I don't have a difficulty through the Vertex 2s. They are stale and working properly. I have benchmarked them and they a approaching the bandwidth limits of my SATA2 associations. I am satisfied with the Vertex 2. as consider Memory wise, in the past I have had troubles in excess of clocking certain memory sticks at a definite FSB speed and when I got enhanced ram I could go ahead of it. Memory wise I think various faster ram may help my system. My Gskill Pi PC12800 over clocked has established to be a great performer among my over clocked system though.

    Hello I am facing similar kind of problem. I learned that my MB is starting through simply the amount of RAM running steady so I could minor my time, but I lost a few of my ram. My computer is booted with 2GB stable than 6 GB of RAM. MAxxMem2 and CPU-Z did not understand this. Windows 7 showed all the information of 6 GB of system RAM but only 2GB ram working. So my ram overclocked was not stable as I thought it was. It is because the RAM does not fit fine and my boots MB with the amount of RAM that is stable. Not sure if this happens in all MBs.
