(another 2x4Gb 1866Mhz G.Skill Snipers) to my rig ??


I currently have 2x4Gb 1866Mhz G.Skill Snipers OCed to 2133MHz
Are you actually using the 8Gbs of ram you already have? You have looked in your task manager as you were doing something and seen your memory % go up to 100%? If not, then no, it's a bad idea.

Anyone actually notice a stability boost from the new bios 0706 update?

8GB RAM is plenty for normal use. 16GB is just overkill, and may aswell hinder overclocking.

It's only $20 and it should be adequate for overclocking to 4.6Ghz.
Thanks for the recommendation ut. I will review this some more. Appreciate it.

Are they the same model as I own? See below...

If so, what voltage for that speed? Just curious as I have no intention to do it.

I know that 8GB is more than enough for my needs. My previous build had 2GB and it was ok. I thought about going for 4GB on my new build but decided that for the price, let's go right away for 8GB.

Which version did everyone upgrade to?
post #3767 of 7108
Still on 0406 right now. Otherwise, I'm waiting on Ivy bridge to launch first, since I have had no stability nor performance issues so far.

I heard higher overclocks with lower voltages were being achieved but I don't know which to try.

Thread Starter 
I'm still on 0208

... partially because I just haven't really had any issue or reason to force me to change, but also because I'm not sure I know how to change the BIOS just yet

=========================

Also I'll look to update the Owners list again this weekend ... I see 2 new people filled out the Google auto Form, and I see One new person posted a thread, and a couple new Photo's to update existing owners ... so IF you want to be added, or have info you want updated, or I asked you for PROOF info YOU TWO know WHO you are get it in to me today if you can, thanks

Whenever I start up my computer, the Boot_Device LED stays lit and the debug code is 34. I'm not sure what to do. First time building.
