ZYNQ XCZ7010 single port bram max speed

Question

Hello. 

My system clock on my arty z7-10 board is 125MHz. When I try to simulate this clk in my test bench with a single port RAM, it does not work, and only outputs zeros, however, the simulation does work with a 6.25MHz clock. 

I looked at the 7 series memory usage guide, and some other xilinx forums, and thye said the BRAM should be able to run at around 200 MHz, so I am not sure why my simulation doesnt. 

The first picture is the 6.25MHz clock and everything is running fine. 

The second picture is the 125MHz clock where nothing happens. 

Testbench is below and source verilog is attatched. 

Thanks. 

I also put this on the xilinx forums but accidently posted it in the wrong catagory, so I will put it here too.
