    Default RAM issue

    While I was testing how far I could push the core clock on my GPU, the computer crashed so I reset, on a whim I decided to go into the BIOS and set the RAM from AUTO to 1600. It would then crash as soon as it got to the Windows loading screen. Does anyone know what the issue could be? The RAM is meant to be 1600 and I know that under auto it's 1333.

    were your CPU and RAM overclocked?

    No, I'll be overclocking my CPU when I get my watercooling kit, but as of now only my GPU was overclocked. Do I have to set timings to parallel the change in Mhz? I assumed the RAM would just run since it's meant to run at 1600, haha/

    but did you change the RAM voltage as well though?

    ^ This part right here is pretty important. I know mine crashed for this reason. I always set the recommended voltage and timing labeled on the sticks, unless I'm overclocking of course.

    DAMMIT, lol.Never even considered looking at the sticks, XD. I'll set the proper timings and voltage when I crack open my case, thanks guys.
