Changing g75vw Ram timings and finding faster Ram?

Speccy shows my 12gb DDR @ 665mhz 9-9-9-24, that's abysmal.


I don't know about the idle and load features, is this an idle mode?

Asus has the bios all locked up too, can't change the timings. I don't want to flash it with modded bios, I can't afford a replacement right now.

I forgot the stock brand, whatever Asus ships the g75vw with, the stock 8gb is 11-11-11-28 @ 768mhz, with the addition 4gb of Samsung it goes to 9-9-9-24, I'm use to 7-7-7-21 with desktops, I guess.

I'll look at finding some faster ram.


Edit:

Idk, I'm trying to do some benchmarks, I guess this 600mhz is at idle.

The stock is also DDR3 1600mhz, must be system idle.


You guys must have done ram dozens of times too, sorry. I'm relatively new to the forum.


lol woops I meant to edit my last post -_-*

Sadly this is usually the price you pay for mismatching memory. My G55VW reads XMP profiles just fine (so by extension your G75VW should do so to), so what you need to do is get ram with the default specs you want and then replace what you have today. Also remember that programs like Speccy don't take into consideration that you have DDR ram, so you need to double the reported speed. Although 1333MHz is not stellar either.
Asus ROG G55VW:
CPU: i7 3630QM
GFX: Geforce GTX660M with 2GB ram
RAM: 2x8Gb 2133MHz Kingston HyperX Impact (surprisingly the G55VW uses the 2133 X.M.P. profile)
Storage: RAID0 with 2x 256Gb Crucial SSDs (both msata, one in a sata adapter)
OS: Windows 10 x64

Excellent, tanks! I sort of assumed that, but w/e, performance wise I'm satisfied as far as I can tell so far.
