Sorry b0yd07 I wasn't attacking you, just saying since it only seems to be an issue with 2 or 3 people out of several dozens or more board owners in this thread, that it's most likely an issue on YOUR (2 or 3 peoples) boards, because of some setting that's different than the rest of ours. No need to say the board is crap, or Asus is at fault if that's the case right ?

I'm sure we can get it resolved. Now I'm still running on the OLD original BIOS, maybe that has something to do with it ? but I guess unless you post your entire BIOS line by line I guess it will be a trial and error effort in fixing it.

Hi Everyone

I will be buying a Asus Maximus IV GENE-Z motherboard.. with a i7 2600K cpu.
Mostly using it for gaming.

I need help deciding what memory is the best bang for the buck... I have little experience in overclocking but willing to learn.

Does Cas Latency and timing make a big difference?
I like GSKILL just not sure what to get..

I look forward in hearing your suggentions!!!

Thanks

Since you don't OC BUS on 1155, RAM is not as big of a deal as it was on AM3 or X58. Just get some 1600 1.5V RAM. Corsair Vengeance and the Gskill Ripjaws/Sniper is the favorite.

Can anybody confirm if the Realtek drivers and the ALC889 control the optical out jack on the Gene as well as the spdif header?
post #2727 of 7108
There have been so many reviews about this. The only time you really need to worry about the latency/timings or even the speed is when you are trying to squeeze every last bit of overclock out of your chip or you are benching and those tow usually go hand in hand anyway. The reviews I have read have shown that 1600Mhz to be the sweet spot for SB, with 2133Mhz not giving you enough of a jump to justify the cost difference. I use the Gskill Sniper 2 x 4Gb 1.25v 1600Mhz kits and I do not overclock them just cause it's not needed. Personally, if I was buying today I would get one of the many deals that are being offered right now, stick with one of the better brands like Corsair or Gskill, Mushkin, etc.

... but if you need additional information, check out this write up I did about RAM for our boards ... http://www.overclock.net/14646122-post2042.html ... it should help make your choice easier as well.

I'd say it's almost evenly split, like 45/45% between owners using the Corsair Vengeance and G.Skill Ripjaw X's /or Sniper's with the last 10% optioning for something different.

Current good deals @ NewEgg =

G.SKILL Ripjaws X's 16GB 1600 (PC3 12800) - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231429 - $100.00 w/ Free Kingston flash card

CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB 1600 (PC3 12800) - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820233180 - $53.00 w/ Free shipping

Gskill makes great RAM and the performance/value is top notch
if you looking for nice RAM with some OC headroom this may hit the spot
both kits should hit 2133
8Gb
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231445
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231404
here are 4Gb
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...odeId=1&name=7

here is good comparison and what you can expect from different frequency's
