  • Trying to get DDR3 RAM to 1866 speeds.

    Hello, I've had my system for a while now and just realized my ram isn't running at 1866 but at 1333 speeds.

    When I was building my system I went for the G.Skill F3-1866C10D-16GAB sticks, installed in slots 2 and 4 as noted in the manual. I know these are XMP optimized for intel motherboards, so I just need some guidance in getting my timings correct. (For a total of 16gb of ram)

    I've used CPU-Z and found out the timings of my ram, there are 2 XMP profiles, I just need to know what exact timings I need to use to get these to work correctly.

    I was experimenting on my CPU earlier everything has been set back to defaults.

    Motherboard:ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R 2.0 (noctua nh-d14 fan)
    CPU:AMD FX 9590
    RAM:G.Skill F3-1866C10D-16GAB
    GPU: 2x R9 290X crossfire

    I'll include photos of my UEFI and CPU-Z

    Test XMP to see how it works.

    Also, make sure modules are installed in the same color slots furthest away from the CPU
