grammar nazzzzzi (it gets censored so i had to put more zzz) lol. idk i love calling it rams. it is more bad ass.. it has moree ooomphhh but yeah i know it is silly lol.
Just a little update. I had a few question marks when I ordered this, first, I've never ordered ram whose brand wasn't even on my motherboard's compatibility list. I figured that would be fine, ddr3 is ddr3, right? But I did breathe a little sigh of relief when it booted right up.
The other concern is that this is the first really high speed RAM I've ever had. I've read about XMP and AMP, but have never used them, to wit, I have an AMD processor and this RAM doesn't offer AMP, just XMP. Even so, when I hopped into bios before the first boot, my ASRock motherboard detected the xmp profile and let me select to load it. It didn't look like it was going to load by default, but I suppose it might have.
Upon booting into Windows, the task manager detects RAM running at 2133, the maximum supported by my APU, and everything certainly seems fine. I need to read up and understand the XMP profiles a little more, and figure out if I need to go back into bios and manually tune the timing to whatever would be appropriate for these sticks at 2133 instead of their rated 2400, I also understand that there is a way to get 2400 running with an APU despite the lack of support, and I am at least curious about that.
I think I might run it at 1600 for a while until I learn a little more. Just to be on the safe side.
id check the manufacturer timings and just put it manually in the bios. i would suggest to s[censored]ze more frequency as high as you can get, apus perform better with higher ones.
