i currently have the original 16gb of RAM in, the 2666mhz, and nothing else, yet i'm still having at least one of these problems (razer synapse not detecting my peripherals).

 

i did look at the timings on the RAM though. the original set is 16-18-18-35, while the new one is 16-18-18-36. i honestly don't know anything about timings so i don't know if this would have any effect. again, the original set of RAM is the only one that's in as i type this, so those two sticks have the same timings.

if your problem isn't solved yet maybe update bios like this guide

built my pc about two and a half years ago. started out with 16gb (2 x 8gb) corsair vengeance rgb pro. that set was 2666mhz, got another 16 gb tonight as a gift (also corsair vengeance rgb pro), which is 3200mhz. i knew that the speed would automatically drop to 2666, but thats fine, it was a gift, etc. cleaned the dust out of my pc, put the RAM in, and ever since things have gone wrong.

 

task manager and BIOS both say i have 32gb of ram, and the ram is being detected by icue, so it's working. but i have no clue what's up. i've updated windows. i've updated my drivers. i've restarted my computer many times

 

1) when i join a call on discord, i sometimes can't hear the other person unless i restart. i can hear other discord sounds, and sounds outside of discord, just not the call.

2) razer synapse isn't detecting my blackwidow chroma v2 or my firefly, it tells me to connect a compatible device (this was not happening until i updated windows)

3) stardew valley is lagging, like BAD. like 2 fps bad. not consistent but certainly annoying.

4) i use a wireless xbox controller with stardew valley. accompanied with the lag spikes are my controller disconnecting and reconnecting.

 

specs

 

pls help 😞

try first 16gb alone, if it works try those two 8+8 without 16gb module, if that works try 16+8 and 16+ the other 8 one.  something about ram timings is not working as intended
