MSI fm2-a55m-p33 and 2133mhz ram overclocking
« on: 19-July-19, 06:31:55 »


Hi,
i have the msi fm2-a55m-p33 mobo and i want to put an 2133mhz ram.

At the manual it says that supports 2133mhz ram only if the system is overclocked.
At the BIOS it has an OC Genie II profile that allows you to overclock the system
and at this profile menu it says that "DRAM max frequency" is 1866, so how can i put an 2133mhz ram and the system work?

The 2133* (*OC) only means that the 2133 is not a standard for this platform, and you need to overclock the memory.
Depends on what memory model you are using, in standard mode see if it has a 2133 XMP profile, f not you will have to overclock it manually, both clock and timings.

I don't know, does it?
What is current DRAM frequency after you save and reboot?

The DRAM frequency is 1600Mhz with XMP enabled.

Can you attach a CPU-Z text report (about tab), and BIOS OC screen (F12)?

BIOS current memory frequency is 1333, but CPU-z show 1600 so the BIOS screen must have been taken  before you saved the setting.
This memory is rated to be 1600, the 1866 is the  maximum supported standard by the CPU.
Is it possible to overclock it to 2133? I don't know, 1866 is more feasible.
Not worth the trouble though, very little benefit from memory overclock.
