It's running 1560 @ 6-8-6-20 1T now with my 1090T, but with the CHIV it ran 1950 8-9-8-22 1T stable. This board won't even boot. Wondering if there's a trick to it.

Could be a difference of voltages on the saber vs chiv, the saber may start with lower base values and they may need a bump up.

Tried the latest bios and it's still hopeless. I have to settle for 1560 and see if I can really screw the timings down.
ok you are very disapointed in the way it clocks PSC. This abbriviation stands for ?
I know a chiv is a motherboard .. which one?
Tridents..? is this a brand of memory?
bcod.. blue screen of death... what error specifically?
I doubt that in this stage of the game i would assume its the board.
However these boards are known for stability wtih great overclocks but not the fastest.
revision i bios defaulted to ecc memory.
did you run memtest?
as you know the memory controller is on the chip not the motherboard.
how hot are the vrms?what are your temps?
what voltage is the memory rated for ? what voltage are you running?
the guys/gals on there are pretty good and can get you dialed in
what power supply are you using?
sorry i have to call it a night.. not feeling well.. Ill catch back up when i can.

PSC is powerchips and what is in the ram. CHIV is Crosshair IV, the 890FX ROG board. Yes, G.Skill Tridents rated for 2000 9-9-9-24 1.6v. I know the ram is fine so no need to memtest. I have tried the latest bios with no luck.

I have tried raising the CPU/NB, but that was no good. I tried other things such as the Current capability and Voltage Frequency, but it just wasn't happening. I'm not mad about it, I can only assume the board doesn't play well with PSC and Thuban. I tried my ripjaws and that was even worse lol.

Been running prime95 for about an hour now at 4ghz 1.4v NB @ 3050 and ram at 1560 6-7-6-20 so it's not that bad.

Are you only tweaking the base timings or the whole slew of other timings in the dram timing control? (I had to tweak the other settings too on saber, not just the first 4 and last one.) It is possible things like refresh time and rtw wtr and all that fun stuff defaults at different values between the two boards.

Also the drive strengths may be different and need adjustment. I changed mine in that regard as well.

Good point! I never even looked at the subtimings or the drive strengths. Will look into that once I'm done installing ubuntu. Thanks.

No problem, also, different "base" memory profiles between manual timing or DOCP, both change those timings depending on the base memory clock selection (every time you change the memory clock base it changes all timing data and memory voltage), something to keep in mind.

Hope the info helps and it works out for ya. ;p

thanks for the update :> yes sometimes backing off the power phases helps stableize things. This board has its own list of unwritten rules but there are awesome people to help in the process..
good luck.

Okay? Relevance to amd 990fx sabertooth board land is? Seems a little on the trolling side. : /
