  • F3-2133c10d-8gxm(x2) + asus m5a99fx pro r2.0 + amd fx-8350

    I tried to find posts with same setup as me, but everyone seems to be running two sticks.

    I know AMD FX chips support up to 1866 when it has 2 sticks Installed and 1600 when 4 sticks installed.

    What would be my ideal memory setup in BIOS for running:

    AMD FX 8350
    ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0
    F3-2133C10D-8GXM, which is 2x4G and I currently have 4x4G right now.

    should I set frequency at 1600 and tighten the RAM timing?

    I'm currently running my CPU at stock settings.

    *I should've gotten intel... *

    First, make sure each kit is installed in the same color slots.

    For settings, you can try DDR3-1600 9-9-9-24 1.50V to see if that works.

    If no problem, you can try DDR3-1866 9-11-11-31 1.60V

    Need to determine whether the two kits are capable of reaching a certain frequency first, then you can lower timings from there.

      I ran the memory bandwidth benchmarking on Sandra, seems like it had no trouble passing the test. what else can I do to increase the performance?
