z77a-g43 motherboard
This RAM shows as PC3-10700 in CPU-Z (667 MHz DDR)
Is there something wrong?

You need to go in to your bios and Enable XMP Performance Profiles or just set the timings and voltage manually.

Thanks Chicoman it seems like a good hint. However I tought that DDR3 1600 MHz was standard? Why do I need XMP Performance Profiles? Aren't these for higher speeds (non-standard speeds) memories?
Also is there such setting in all BIOSes?

Just manually set your ram to 1.5v , cas10 timings and 1600mhz. From there you can tweak settings, possibly 1.6v at 1866 cas9.

thanks
It seems that going manual is the only way to go.
This RAM do not support XMP. And the SPD is programmed for 1333 MHz.
This kind of sucks. Most people buying this won't use it to its full potential.

I'm still unable to get this ram to run at 1600MHZ. I'm using an Intel DZ77GAL-70K board and all the recommendations in this topic lead to a failed boot.

Anyone have experience making this RAM work on this particular board?

^ set SPD timings should be set to what is says in CPUZ.

Alternatively, it should be set to what is says here:
http://www.kingston.com/datasheets/khx1600c10d3b1k2_16g.pdf

Assuming it says, "10-10-10", that would mean

Frequency= 1600Mhz
Cas Latency = 10
tRCD = 10
tRP = 10
tRAS = 27 (Set to 30 if unable to boot)**
Command rate = 1 (Set to 2 if unable to boot)*
vdimm=1.5V (Set to 1.65V if unable to boot)***


* = change these settings in this order, one by one and test, if you are unable to boot.



P.S. have you update  your motherboard to the latest BIOS? That should help with stability issues.

Before I tried any of your recommendations, I tried updating the BIOS on the board using the link you suggested and used the 64-bit automatic installer.
(link: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=22455&lang=eng&OSVersion=Windows%208%2C%2064-bit*&DownloadType=BIOS)

The installer requested I restart my machine and after it started to reboot and install the update, the computer restarted half-way and now it just doesn't boot at all. It enters some weird boot cycle and I receive no graphical display and no beeps. The numbered LEDs in the machine cycle a bunch of numbers before landing on 14 then quickly shutting down.

I tried switching the jumper and also tried removing the CMOS battery for a few minutes before putting it back in, and now it just does the exact same thing. I don't receive any beeps except for if I try to force shut down during its loop phase, where I get three beeps before shutting off.

I brought it into the NCIX Coquitlam earlier and they told me it would cost $35 before they could even take a look.

What a disaster over a bit of RAM. The worst part is that I got the board through the Intel Retail Edge and they have worse customer service than anyone.

possibly the DZ77GAL-70K, being an Intel board, is really stringent about qualified memory + supported speeds? I can assure you that you do not need a 3rd gen (Ivy Bridge) Core CPU to use 1600 mhz, but it's not "officially" supported.

Google suggests many people with your board have this issue. You could go digging, but I didn't see any solutions.


tbh, 1333 vs 1600 isn't anything to ever lose sleep over. Very few applications need the extra bandwidth of 1600 mhz, and for those applications, you would use 2133 or higher. Video encoding and file compression are the only applications I know of, off hand, that benefit from extra memory bandwidth. Video encoding benefits far more from cores and mhz, while compression is pretty much a thing of the past (for home users) outside of things like server backups. More memory bandwidth on Sandy/Ivy is like ****ing in the ocean most of the time.

Hmm, that's certainly weird and unfortunate. That would suggest that there was something wrong with stability even at stock settings. :(

Certainly hard to pinpoint it, but it suggests something wrong with either mobo, ram, cpu or psu.

Alright so after a bunch of tweaking and mental breakdowns, I got everything recovered and tried the new boot timings and it seemed to work! Not sure what I did right, but I removed the CMOS battery again and then did another BIOS recovery through removing the jumper.

Adjusted to 10-10-10 with CR=1 and even kept the voltages down. Woohoo!

Bought this for my brother's hacktintosh build with Z77X-D3H.

Even set it manually 10-10-10-27 1600 in BIOS, the kit still wont's run in this setting.

Weird, motherboard saved the setting but still run it in 1333 9-9-9-24.

I thought about making a hackintosh, but decided to run it in a VM instead since I am lazy and didn't want to do the reformatting / dualboot setup.

Here is one guide you can use

The hacktintosh is built and running perfectly. Paired with a 3770Kg4.2 (H80 only), 256GB M4 and GTX650 for CUDA it is quite fast for Photoshop CS6. All bought in Warehouse sale except the CPU. Would recommend Z77X-D3H almost everything runs natively except the audio chip needs multibeast driver. As long as you run the OS in different drive its very straight forward.

The only thing puzzles me is the ram speed. Again, BIOS saved the 16 multiplier setting but still runs 1333. On F16 BIOS and the OC does work, so I doubt the BIOS or board is at fault?
