Thanks for your reply
Here is the exact RAM I ordered and where it was ordered from: https://www.scan.co.uk/products/16gb-(2x8gb)-corsair-ddr4-vengeance-lpx-black-pc4-17000-(2133)-non-ecc-unbuffered-cas-13…
I have just found that my memory is running at 1066mhz by using CPU-Z though, any idea why is this? That seems to be an issue itself?
Memory is DDR=Double Data Rate. That means that the frequency you see there is correct. (For DDR the frequency you see advertised is double then the real frequency)
What you see in HWiNFO is the real frequency of the ram and you take that frequency and multiply it by 2 and 1066.66x2=~2133 .
The problem is that Intel is set to work with 2133 15 15 15 36 on spd speed, and your memory is 13 15 15 28.
If your XMP is enabled in bios that means that the mainboard may not set some voltages correctly.
Thank you for the information. Of course! I completely forgot about that haha.
I do have XMP enabled in bios but I don't know anything about voltages or enough about the "15 15 15 36" and "13 15 15 28" you listed, is that CAS latency? How should I go about setting voltages correctly?
You can test the processor with this application: Download Intel® Processor Diagnostic Tool
The problem is that when you have problems with the system and is not stable, I don't know how accurate are the results
Hi Allan, thanks for the reply.
Interesting read, can I ask what CStates are though? No one mentions it, I will definitely try turning them off, though, but would like to know what they do first.

Yes, C-States are IDLE modes or states. Please check the following information for more details:
