I'm trying to go up on my DDR3 from 1066 to 1333 but Windows keeps crashing upon startup; before / after login screen.
I have a EVGA X58 3X SLI Core i7 Motherboard. I upgraded from 3 Gb to 12 Gb and after installing Windows 7 Pro 64-bit, it sees all the memory.
CPU is Nehalem i7. 920 @ 2.67 GHz There are 2 cores I think with 4 virtual cpus each.
The memory I now have is: Patriot PV7312G1333ELK Viper II Sector 7 12GB PC10666 Destop Memory
- Memory Category Desktop - Memory Type DDR3 - Memory Speed PC10666 - Memory Speed MHz 1333MHz - Memory Size 4096MB - Total Memory Size 12GB - Memory Modules 3 - Memory Channels Triple - Memory Socket DIMM - Memory CAS Latency 9 - Memory Timing 9-9-9-24 - Voltage 1.65V - ECC No - Memory Buffer Unbuffered
My bios is: EVGA's X58 3X SLI motherboard employs a standard issue Phoenix Award BIOS that is dialed in with a myriad of options for enabling and disabling features and peripherals, as well as overclocking and voltage adjustments.
I also have access / can use the EVGA ELEET Tuning software, but I am afraid to mess around in the bios or that utility.
The screen shots on the web page show the memory set to 1033, which is what I'm now running, but my memory is listed at 1333, and I would even consider 1600 if you thought it would take at least 6 months to destroy the memory at that speed - it would be worth it if that's a bottleneck.
