More about 970a g43 8gb ram crashing
  1. What CPU? may want to try raising the CPU/NB voltage to 1.15 - 1.2, thats the voltage to the MC (memory controller)

    AMD FX-4170 Zambezi 4.2ghz (4.3 ghz turbo) Quad core
  3. What exactly is the DRAM - is this a single 8 GB stick, or a a set of 2x4GB (from a single package) ?

    its a single 8 gb stick
  5. Might want to raise the DRAM voltage + 0.05, the FXs were designed with and around 4 GB sticks

    How would i raise the voltage i have the MSI mother board 970A-G43

    wait after i updated my bios it stopped crashing could this be a solution i could have done??

    i heard that if you update your it changes your timing too because i never changed my timing
  8. Updating the BIOS probably kicked the DRAM to the mobo default, imagine it's 1333, can look in BIOS and see if you have an option for DOCP or EOCP (overclocking profiles) and if so set to 1600 to get to the sticks spec freq

    how do i check if my timing is correct
  10. Easiest to check in CPU-Z (free downloadable utility), run it and look in the Memory tab, will tell you the freq you're running at (and remember this is DDR (DOUBLE data rate) so true freq shown (here we want 800) is taken times 2 to get effective so 800x2=1600 effective, if it shows 667 ( = 1333) or 533 (= 1066)

  13. In your image msBS0002.bmp - go to that page and enable XMP

    how about capture 2 is the timing right?
    the timing for the ram is 10-10-10-27

    That should be the timings that will set up for 1600

    so my timing 10-10-10-27 is correct on my compter
  18. Best answer
    Yes

    If you enable the XMP does it change my timings for me? Just wondering
  20. Yes. it sets the DRAM to the optimal settings for the sticks, per the SPD programming

    I got CPUZ and just wondering if my timings are right
    800.0 MHz
    FSB:Dram : 1:4
    (CL) 10
    (tRCD) 10
    (tRP) 10
    (tRAS) 27
    (tRC) 41
    CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
  22. Depending on the actual model of the set - Yes, probably - you're at 1600/CL10
