    Could a vmware machine using an os 32 work with TB 6.3?

    I have followed this guide exactly, and unfortunately when I write the timings it rolls back to the original timings, when it reads the SPD on the RAM. Am I doing something wrong?

    I start the computer with disabled driver enforcement.

    Run the program, click editor.

    Correct the timings, and select Reprogram SPD with new SPD data.

    After it refreshes it has the old timings, not the new ones.

    What am I doing wrong? Is it because I'm using the stock ram? Is it factory locked to not be able to change? I'm running Windows with driver enforcement disabled, and I purchased a full copy of Thaiphoon.

    Don't try to do anything with your memory module. Hyundai used to write protect SPD EEPROM. And your memory module seems to be not an exception. To make sure your memory module is write protected, please choose EEPROM -> PSW protection and post here a screenshot. If your module is write-protected the listed checkbox should be grayed (disabled).

    It is grayed out. So they're locked.

    Thank you so very much for your help! Looks like I need to get some new RAM if I want to overclock more than I have.

    What brands are unlocked? Is it recommended that I get the same speed RAM and use Thaiphoon or just get slower RAM?

    I do not recommend you to buy memory modules manufactured by Hynix (Hyundai) and Silicon Power. They are always write protected. Kingston, Samsung, Kingmax, A-DATA and many others prefer not to lock RAM modules.

    Anyone able to get 6.3 version working? I have a 32bit W7 install going with DDR3, and Windows detects the memory just fine, but Thaiphoon Burner just says "Undefined" when reading the module.

    Curious if anyone else had success with 6.3, or what might be the issue on my laptop. For the record, SPDtool also reports the same 'undefined' thing...
