ibdo oc cpunb and it helps.. in synthetis it is most noticed in crystal benchmark..

when I ocd my ram it helped a lot with load times which when gaming and running average fps it helps boost thet.. there was a more snapier feel.. in most cases it helps but dependant on the program is more or less if you see it or not

Overclocking RAM can also speed up video editing functions.


And now on another topic after a couple weeks with the FX 9370 chip in my Sabertooth revision 1, I can say I still am happy with the chip. I have reached 4.9 stable, and 5.1 very near stable. My OCing skills are not all that great though, so I am waiting for a more experienced user to take this chip higher and hopefully learn from them.

Today I decided to go the other way and see what kind of Underclocking results I can get. I am starting at 4ghz since that was roughly the speed of my 1090t and it did most of what I needed in video editing/rendering, so with the extra 2 cores this is probably still adequate. The goal here is to see how low I can take the voltage at 4ghz, and then later probably try and work it up to the mid 4's without raising the voltage much. Right now to my pleasant surprise I am running prime at 1.25v 4.013mhz and a nice cool 42c on the cpu. Having a 5ghz chip is nice, but a 4ghz chip at 1.25 is kinda it's own prize. I am happy if this is the bottom, but I am ready to try for lower. I will report back if there is something worth reporting.

Update. I found the floor and then put it up one notch. So far about 30 minutes stable into prime. Not sure if I believe the CPU-Z temp, as Thermal Radar is reporting 40c

My rig has been running great with my current OC of 4.9ghz processor and 2240mhz memory for months now.

Last night I added 2 more sticks of Samsung wonder ram and when starting the computer up I noticed the rear case fan was not turning and the cold cathold light flickered so I shut it down. Checked the connection and all was fine so I restarted again and it worked as it should and the boot was normal after that. Later I launched BF4 and after a couple of min. It would freeze up on me and this went on for a few tries. I also noticed I had no sound in game other than a hiss coming through my headset.

I decided to run Prime95 and the CPU OC was fine, but when the memory was added it started failing right away. I removed the 2 new sticks of memory and re-ran Prime95 and it still fails after a few min. of stress. I started backing the ram OC down and testing as I went and with every step it would fail prime all the way down to stock speed of 1600mhz where it stressed fine at that speed.

I tried eveything I can think of with the ram and the sound and they are both still FUBAR?

Has anyone else had a problem like this with a Sabertooth MB?

RMA?

Thanks

Have you tried lowering the memory speed?

I don't know if the versions of Sabertooth have this bug, but I do know that the M5A99X-EVO doesn't like meory speeds over 1600 when al 4 slots are populated.

Good luck!

Has anyone else had a problem like this with a Sabertooth MB?

RMA?

Thanks

EDIT: well,something went FUBAR... I had a nice short story here. You know: boy meets girl style nice tongue.gif

So I'll just give you the gist of it:

You've got all four DIMM slots populated? I don't know if the various revisions of Sabertooth suffer from this issue, but something like the M5A99X-EVO I had didn't like to run it memory faster than 1600MHz with all 4 slots stuffed.

Good luck!

Up until I started using the Samsung, it had 4 sticks of 1600 Balistix running @ 1820 with no problems. Not 2 weeks ago I installed the Balistix prior to selling them.

OK,so that's not it, then.

I noticed the words "selling them" referring to those Balistix modules. I take it you have nothing else to swap the Sammy's with for testing?

You've tried single RAM sticks? Two sticks in A1 B1 or A2 B2? You've reset bios to default and checked stability?

Checked the voltages on which the DIMMs run? Some Samsungs are ULV, but not that I know of 1.5V or 1.65V could trully damage them...

I'm floundering, here - I'm stumped, if all of the above has been checked.

Good luck!

I reset the MB to default settings and started bumping the FSB up 100 at a time and keeping the CPU at 4.0ghz was able to get all 4 sticks to @ 2086mhz. Now I need to start OCing the CPU back up to hopefully 4.9ghz again, but will have to wait and see...

My Rev 1 Sabertooth has had 4 sticks of Corsair Dominator GT for over 2 years with no problem running at 1866.

Does your power supply provide enough amperage for dual 7950s 4 slots of memory all OC'd running on water? Do you have cooling for your VRMs?
