OCZ Platinum 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Voltage Desktop Memory
I purchased this RAM for my new Core i7 920 build. My mobo defaulted it to 1066 speed with low voltage. So I increased the multiplier and set the voltage to the suggested 1.65 to get up to 1600 speed. I kept on getting error messages during my Windows 7 installation saying that the computer unexpectedly restarted. So I checked the Newegg comments and a ton of people have these BSOD and restart problems because this RAM does not run stable at its advertised speed.
I'm a noob, so I didn't understand all the commenters' tech jargon with all those abbreviations like QPI, XMP, VVT, VDIMM. I also see no way to view my timings on my cheap Foxconn Flamingblade mobo. Can someone walk me through how to slow this RAM down and make it stable?
