Well thats weird and I dont know why my mobo is rated for 1600 and no warning. Il still test the ram.

Is my cpu messed up then?

Hi there,

Your Mobo specs state: Support for DDR3 1666(OC)/1333/1066 MHz memory modules the default is actually 1333MHz.
I can't see anywhere through this thread what CPU you are running if you could post back with that detail it would help.
Remember, when all else fails a cup of tea and a good swear will often help! It won't solve the problem but it will make you feel better.

Hi there,

Just double checked the specs for your CPU at AMD and it states: X3 and X4 - Support for unregistered DIMMs up to PC2-8500 (DDR2-1066MHz) -AND- PC3 10600 (DDR3-1333MHz) ( Link: http://www.amd.com/us/products/desktop/processors/athlon-ii-x2/Pages/AMD-athlon-ii-x2-processor-model-numbers-feature-comparison.aspx )

I would recommend that you re-set BIOS to optimized defaults and leave your RAM at 1333MHz. If you are still having the problems, after you have done that, then yes, there could be a problem with the CPU.

Ya I did that right after I updated the bios. Played a game for an hour or then when I went back to desktop which is usually went stuff happens it restarted non top. But i bet I could use it for bit right now since its been off all night.

Are you monitoring the temp of your CPU? Is it overheating at all? Are teh temps throughout your system OK?
This is not a sign of a problem with the Memory Controller but I just want to eliminate other possible issues.

This is a problem with running RAM at 1600 MHz on these processors. The problem is inconsistent and what works for one system might not work on another one.

I know you have looked through the sticky about RAM speeds but I have just lifted this from it:

THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT:
If you do manage to get your RAM running over 1333 Mhz., your system can appear to be fine and might even pass Memtest and other benchmarking utilities successfully. However, AMD have discovered that, in certain scenarios, the system may fall over after a period of use, depending on system usage and if you are stressing the CPU. This normally indicates a problem with the Memory Controller and you may need to replace your CPU if this happens.

Not at all, when I gaming, quit then its restarts, I check the temp in bios its its around 43C. system temp is 31C

Well in that case, if you are happy that your RAM is OK then, I would look at RMA'ing the CPU.

should I be mentioning that the ram was at 1600?


LOL, I was talking to my friend and giving him the warning and he says im paranoid and his system is fine.

AMD are aware of this issue and if you RMA the CPU to them, they will probably replace it without too much comment, apart from keeping your RAM to 1333MHz. They will only do this once though.

As for your friend, he might be one of the lucky ones but I have done a lot of research into this subject. I am running a Phenom ii X6 1090T and my RAM is rated at 16000MHz but I won't risk my CPU by running it at is rated spec and am running it at 1333MHz. It is better to be safe than sorry.

Okay well il check it out and see. Maybe il run the ram anyways for 10 tests each just to make sure.

Is there a program I can use, to test the cpu, I used prime95 before, is that the best?

Prime is good especially if you use the blended tests as that pushes the memory especially.

Im running mem test first for each stick so if I attempt prime should I run blended even tho I used memtest?
