Zippy, edit out your Windows serial! Don't really need any of the info under

Have you done the usual already: CCleaner, anti virus scans etc? Checked HDD health, run Memtest to check your RAM?

Does the lag usually occur in just games, or generally using the PC? How new is the build? Are you overclocking? Temps look fine.

Oh damn I am a noob LOL

No viruses I can find. It is a new build been having random lag issues since I put it together. I bet it hates the ram I got ;_;

Laq happens regardless of how much strain I put on the PC.

I been thinking possible timing issues.

I think this is probably your issue. I've never played with overclocking RAM or adjusting timings, but I would put your RAM back down to stock and see how it takes.

RAM
8.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 1605MHz (6-6-6-18)


Put it from 1600 to 800 seems to be working fine now.

What is the stock clock? 1600MHz?

Why are you so intent on overclocking your RAM anyway? Also, when you overclocked before, did you increase the voltages?

Well you don't need to underclock your RAM for that reason - you mobo should underclock it anyway, so leaving it at 2000MHz should be fine.

I put everything on auto some things seem to run better but the lag still pops up.

Says its 1066 unganged mode

I can't seem to find 8GB of ram for under 50$ for it.

ZippyDSM, your board has 4 ram slots for a total of 16gigs max so don't think it can use 2x8gigs.
#20
Rechecked and I have this ram set.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820220535

Mmm I do not see anything saying it can't run 16GB from 2 slots but I guess going with 4 slots would be better.

ZippyDSM,

These are the 1600MHz GSkills I use for my FX-8320 OC'd to 4.027GHz 7-8-8-21

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231536

Awesome memory bandwidth for an AMD. I suspect it would be just as good on your Intel. I don't know much about Intel these days. I haven't built an Intel for myself in almost 6 years! My last was an E6750 C2D.




I've also never seen Processor Multi Media scores like this before, for any AMD.




Best Regards,
Russ
