i7-980 4GHz and mem @ 2000MHz how?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I am able to get my CPU to run stable at 4GHz but cant get the memory at 2000MHz stable. I have an i7 980, not the X extreme model. I have an asus r3e and it seems the only way to get the memory where i need it with the cpu overclock is to use a 250 BCLK and lower multiplier to 16 which then it doesnt boot. I have tried to choose xmp and then seelct ~2000MHz and it still crashes. Does anyone know the best way to keep my 4ghz OC and get my memory back at it's rating. BTW this is corsair dominator gt 12gb 2000mhz kit with the fans. Appreciate any help <--OC n00b let me know if you need more info. Im not looking for exact settings, just what i should/can adjust to get this working. I have seen some threads like this with no real answers.

Could you please post your bios settings so we can have a better idea.

Yeah, ill have to load the rog profile back in when i get a chance and post. i kept everything auto except bclk, mulitplier and went from manual to xmp and tried both. I applied 1.35v to cpu from many other 980x recommendations which is close but has unlocked multipliers and such. regardless of other settings, it appears the bclk is what is getting mem where it wants to be but require a lower multiplier.

Need to know bios. Xmp should take care of the memory. Leave the bclk, jump the ratio and make sure your vcore is around 1.3. With that memory should do 4 easily.

Edit:Most of the early bios were for memory and have different memory profiles.

All you have to do is set the x.m.p profile and raise the multi. And that is it and you are set. If you raise the bclk then that will also raise the ram speed. But you can dial it down at the end. If you so choose to do it multi and bclk.

You sure you running ram at 1.65v and ram is capable of running at 2000 mhz?

Edit 2: 250 BLCK is too high, run down to 200 blck and jump up your multiplier, you crazy with that base clock man. Also digi power+ try x-power and try using full calibration and make sure your timings are stable.

Looks good, just make sure it is stable. Told you it was very easy to do. Have fun with it.
