Hello, I have just bought two 4gb corsair XMS3 ram running at 1333 mhz. I installed them and i was getting random crashes. So i took them out and tried making some adjustments. I noticed that when I only used one of the sticks, the bios says it is running at 1600mhz on startup, but when i check in speccy or cpu-z it says 1333.
Also, after a short time the ram runs VERY hot.
Whats going on?
Processor: AMD A8-5500
RAM: 2x Corsair XMS3 4GB 1333Mhz 9-9-9-24 1.5v ver2.12
Apevia 450w power supply (VS450W)
Is the ram compatible with my cpu but having compatibility issues with my motherboard? I ran a memory diagnostics test through windows 10 and it reported the ram as OK.
