I've installed the Kingston HyperX and by default it runs at a slower speed and not the rated speed.
I've installed Kingston HyperX in my system and I am setting the timings in the BIOS. I see entries like "CAS Latency" and "RAS to CAS Delay", but I don't see "Command Rate". Where can I set this timing?
I have set my FSB (Front Side Bus) and/or HyperX memory to the correct settings to achieve the rated speed, but now my system will not boot properly. What is causing this?
