    Default overclocking issue

    Back in October I bought 4GB of Patriot Sector 5 Viper II 1333Mhz memory. I OC'd it easily to 1600Mhz the fist day by only changing the multiplier and never thought anything else about it.

    Last week I bought another 4GB set and put it in, but when I powered it on my bios didnt post... still at 1600Mhz. I took one stick out (they're 4x4gb) and powered it on again and bois posted and windows started fine. Checked to to see if windows was reading the the 6GB that was left in there and it was.

    ...So to make this story a little shorter, I couldn't get all four to load while at 1600Mhz, but backing it down to 1333mhz they all work fine.

    I figure its a voltage issue, but I don't know a lot about overclocking so I was hoping for some advice as to things I can change in bios to get all four working at 1600Mhz.

    Thanks!

    Edit: While still at 1600Mhz, but only using 6Gb, my Windows Experience Index went from 7.7 to 7.5 on the memory section. Just thought that was weird.

    vegetable; can you fill out the system specs under UserCP tab and enable view feature so we can see what kind of setup you have? You need to do this when you seek for the advise.

    Memory OC is easier when you have less module installed and you do need more voltage for memory controller (northbridge).
