    Default help with memory overclock

    Hey guys

    Hey guys!

    New here...and very new to overclocking, but would love some help
    But I just built a new computer
    i7 950
    gigabyte ga-x58a-ud3r http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-423-_-Product
    6gb ddr3 1600 corsair xms3 latency 7 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-286-_-Product)

    gtx 460
    cooler master gx750w
    cooler master storm scout case

    Ok so I've been trying to change the timings, voltage, and frequency manually because it shows up as 88820 and 1066 mhz.
    When I change everything it only recognizes 4gb out of 6gb.
    I set the voltage from 1.5v to 1.64v MIB intelligent motherboard tweaker, DRAM timing selectable, profile DDR voltage 1.5v to 1.64v ...
    It does seem to make my CPU temps go up (sometimes 70c) is this not the correct place to change the voltage? Can I not do this on the stock CPU cooler? Why only 4gb out of 6? Any help is appreciated! I really want this running at what it advertises or as best as possible! thank you!

    Your pressure on CPU from your heatsink may cause this. Reset CPU and heatsink and do not tighten too much. It caused mine to do the same thing.

    Make sure memory is in the correct slots.

    Do you run 32bit or 64bit windows? 32 bit only recognizes 4G.

    That thread is way too long to get a good following. a personal thread is OK.

    Have all the sticks passed Memtest?

    Also, I'm not entirely sure about this, but did you increase voltage to the IMC? Do Bloomfields require IMC volts for more/faster RAM?

    Logan, I think this is a common problem with X58 mobos. I think Jake made mention when he does reviews(heatsink too tight), he runs into this problem. I did and took his advise and Bingo, all 8G recognized. I only had 4G recognized. it solved my proble, by reseting CPU and heatsink. I screw my block "just" tight enough and fixed.....

    Since jakemfbacon posted his question two months ago and he's probably found the anwser by now.

    Guys read between the lines...
    Ok so I've been trying to change the timings, voltage, and frequency manually because it shows up as 88820 and 1066 mhz.
    When I change everything it only recognizes 4gb out of 6gb.
    what he was trying to say that his mobo reconginze all 6Gb as 8-8-8-20 but he think his ram specs CAS of 7. He manually changed the CAS to 7-8-7-20, according to the specification. Then his board only can see 4GB instead of 6GB as before.

    Missing memory or mobo can't see all of them due to the following;
    1). over tight cooler (as DrDeath montioned)
    2). wrong specs and voltage

    @jakemfbacon; you need to tweak the other voltage as well, such as QPI/DRAM. And you should use CPU-Z to find out what exactly your mem timing.
