Just very tiring to do as this requires a lot of testing and reboots that is probably harder than finding the sweet spot for the CPU.

Yeah it is. And you have drive strength and other variables too.

I found this interesting excerpt recently at an overclocker.com ram review:
Quote:
It’s not quite as intense as the R.S.T. Pro; but for in-OS testing, we chose HyperPi using all eight CPU threads. If you don’t have a R.S.T. Pro memory tester, this is the next best thing. For the vast majority of people, it’s the only utility you need for checking memory stability. No problems encountered here as the HyperX Fury kit flew right through the benchmark.

A 32M run of Hyper PI is a lot quicker than a memtest pass.

Thanks mate! thumb.gifthumb.gif

On the same note, I think I getting the heck of setting RAM Timings on this board now. The info above will probably give me more options to play with.

The reason I dig these stuff is to counter the limitations of my rig. I mean, I can't get my stuff to run more than 4.8 at the moment so, RAM thingy will be able to help me gain some boost. Just very tiring to do as this requires a lot of testing and reboots that is probably harder than finding the sweet spot for the CPU.

Yeah aida64 has a lot of *hidden* features, I probably still don't know about half of them and I have been using it for over a year now. buttkick.gif

They will stick in one stick of ram listed on their DRAM QVL list, and if it posts, send it right back, I know you probably like their software (IF that is how you came to this conclusion, but I call it bloatware, personal conclusion of course) and I would never trust ASUS AI Suite II. If this is the scenario, you basically sent them a good board for no reason at all other than some buggy piece of code that I heard was written by..well never mind, I am not here to say negative things, I do after all use their Asus Sabertooth 990fx R2.0 and their Asus GTX780-DC2OC-3GD5 and love them both. Perhaps next time you have such an issue you can contact one of us, even me if you would like, I will set my settings to allow IMs and add you as a friend as I can see you need some help and I am willing to offer it to you. If that is not the case, and you used something like a Unit-T M8990G with a thermocouple attached and you actually took the real temp of the PCIe-2 and it indeed was going bonkers then consider this post null and I will try to delete it. I apologize if I came of harsh, but I came across a few people that were ready to RMA because of ASUS AI Suite telling them their CPU temp was 81823838 C redface.gif Not even kidding.

Here's what the tech at Asus emailed to me about what was fixed. I have no idea what it means!


ASUS CASEID=RWTM20140416065153327-550 Please click here if you wish to reply this mail!

this is what i was able to pull from the case for a description of what was fixed/replaced,

For those interested here is a link to OCCT http://www.ocbase.com/ and I am not affiliated with them in any way shape or form redface.gif


because occt is weak imo

Pretty much everyone here knows about OCCT, but prime95 small FFTs will get the cpu hotter.

plus it works much harder

Yes, I've noticed the sticker on my RAM is 9-9-9-24 - even though it is currently running @ 11-11-11-28. I don't know anything about getting this RAM to run at it's intended 9-9-9-24.

mine said 9-9-9-24.... set it manually... wondering if it would work at tighter timings and what the side effects could be..... hmm...

For the same speed, youll most likely have to up the vdimm. Of course you could go lower speed and have tighter timings. Look at the SPD tab in cpu-z. What you want to try for is the highest read write copy mb/s and low latency as shown in programs like memtest.

Some RAMs could. I used to run my RAM on my UD3 at 2133 with the same timings as with it's stock of 1866 albeit some secondary and tertiary timings altered. And yeah, a little bit of voltage.

Never thought memtest could give you a clear picture of those readings. AIDA64 will.

Read/Write/Copy speeds would depend on your RAM Speed and CPU speed as well. Latency will depend on your timings and if they're stable.
