Added smore RAM but encountering issues...

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

Looking to get some advice....  I recently added an additional 16GB (2 sticks x 8GB) of RAM to my system as I plan to be doing a lot more 4k video editing.  I now have 32gb total (4 sticks).  The other specs for my computer:


CPU: Ryzen 2700X

Memory: 32 GB of G Skill Flare X 3200mz

Mother Board: Asus Strix B450 Gaming


When I first installed the RAM, I kept the advertized speed (3200mz), and my computer would get an error and not open Windows.  I've changed the speed of the ram to 2933mz and bumped the voltage from 1.35 to 1.36 in the hopes of resloving the issues I am having.  I did not change any of the timings.  The current timings are CL14-14-14-34 (too many 14s?)  Windows now loads at the current speed.


Now, every once in awhile youtube, google play music and vimeo don't seem to work in my web browser (Chrome).  When I click on a video to play, it never loads and music does not play in Google Music.  That said, I am able to cast google music to my chrome cast from my PC without issues... At the same time, I can not play a preview of my video project in Sony Vegas.


Does anyone know why this is happening and what I can do to remedy the problem?  As this all started when I installed the RAM, I am assuming that the RAM is the issue.  Do I need to adjust the timings?  The issue comes and goes... Any help would be appreciated.

Ryzen has some tiny issues when using all 4 ram slots, some memory needs to be downclocked, it all depends on the motherboard.

Are you running the latest bios? Have you tried using MemoryTyphoon to get the RAM info and then Ryzen DRAM Calculator to find the best timings?

So it looks like it could be your ram. What I'd do is test the system without the recently inserted ram to see if anything changes.

If it does, put the ram back in, and run the Windows Memory Diagnostic tool, and it should report what's going on, if there's a fault.

It it doesn't, then you might have a bigger problem (faulty cpu maybe??)


Hope this helps!
