[Official] ASUS ROG Rampage IV X79 Owner's Club - Page 197

post #1961 of 9809
Well got everything up and running. I just mounted traditional method. And I'm quite happy. The last mounts where horrible. This is by far the best mount I completely changed the loop around before I had a tight loop from the CPU Block to Mosfet it made it impossible to remount without draining the loop. Now I have two really long tubs for the CPU only I can now remount as many times as I want without draining. And so happens the first mount seems spot on.

4.8Ghz - Linx runs are doing 84c highest core, Prime 81c highest core, AIDA64 highest core 78c

I would like to thank ugotd8 for the offset voltage settings.

Yes the 1404 BIOS made a huge difference in stability at least for me. I spent hours screwing around, rebooting and clearing CMOS with most of the previous versions. I flashed this one into a liquid cooled system I was having immense trouble getting to where I was pretty sure it would go. Out of frustration I just set the gamers OC profile and XMP and waited for it to stick in 40, 00, b2 or 94 state... ugh. And it booted, and CPU-Z said it was 4.7x and 2400... and I thought, "have I been just stupid all this time and could have done that all along!?!" Then I tried it on a system with 1202 and it TOTALLY bombed. Same specs except air cooled. I've since played around with it a lot and it's more forgiving, more automatic and a lot more robust in moving thru boot states even if it doesn't like what you've entered. I rarely get stuck in a state after 1404 that has no video or does not post. I also don't get the phantom "why didn't it reboot this time?" stuff I used to get all of the time. The only thing missing is the QPI settings which have completely confounded me. CPU-Z says QPI is set to 3200 (meaning 6.4T) but I want it at 8 and have no idea how to make that happen now...

How much rad space have you got?



Here's my setup. I use a lot less tubing connect the cpu/vrm block also no pch block like your before pic. The link from vrm to 120 rad comes apart more easily than it looks. I'm thinking about sticking my 240 back in there lol. I addicted to having surplus rads now. At 5ghz cpu hits 63c.

Is this the same 1600Mhz CL11 kit everyone else is mentioning? So you were able to tighten the timings with the voltage increase? Sounds like awesome RAM. I'm thinking of buying some now. It doesn't look like it's available in Australia though. I wonder if the warranty would still be valid if I bought it from overseas?

I have two loops
Loop 1 : XSPC single bay Res, MCP655 pump, CPU, Mosfet, Chipset, RX360
Loop 2 : Dual Bay Res (external), MCP350 pump (external), Tri SLI 7970's, RX240, EX360 (external)

I need two loops because my GPU's 24/7 otherwise the CPU gets to warm for good clocks. On my second loop the one Rad, the pump and Res all all sitting on a shelf under my computer.

The whole reason I just changed it this way above is so I can remount the CPU waterblock without draining both loops. Your quick tube from the Mosfet to the CPU is how I had it before but now after two bad mounts. I learned I want to do it the way I just did it. I can actually take the whole block off now and even take the CPU without draining either loop. For the other two mounts I had to drain both loops it took me over 6 hours each time I changed other things though too. But anyways, I'm very happy now. I probably won't be remounting again unless I change CPU's.

I used to run two loops but now with 14x120mm of rad space, it doesn't matter anymore. biggrin.gif


Btw, you should think about a different block or maybe lapping the raystorm because it's got quite the bow on it which makes it great for different sized heatspreaders like 1155/1366. The 2011 spreader is better suited to a flatter block due to its shape/size. I only have 4 cores but the biggest difference is 3-4c and that's with only one mount. When I'm not lazy I was going to swap in my indigo, but I'm not really feeling the need for it. CPU temps are ridiculously low as it is.

I freaking love it. I was running P/P AP15s on my in case rads and pulled one side of the fans out and put them on the 1080 so it is running with some nice fans. My cpu temps are never an issue now, not even worth a topic now. Gpu temps are 10c lower, and that is after a couple hours of bf3. I'm sort of hooked and contemplating sticking my rx240 back in.

I also added an undervolted PWM 70mm fan to the back vrms. Even with a waterblock, they get hotter than I can endure when touching them with my fingers. I hope the fan will extend the longevity.

Yeah, that's still the limiting factor on mine as well.

Still temping to add the extra rad space...

I flashed this one into a liquid cooled system I was having immense trouble getting to where I was pretty sure it would go. Out of frustration I just set the gamers OC profile and XMP and waited for it to stick in 40, 00, b2 or 94 state... ugh. And it booted, and CPU-Z said it was 4.7x and 2400... and I thought, "have I been just stupid all this time and could have done that all along!?!" Then I tried it on a system with 1202 and it TOTALLY bombed. Same specs except air cooled. I've since played around with it a lot and it's more forgiving, more automatic and a lot more robust in moving thru boot states even if it doesn't like what you've entered. I rarely get stuck in a state after 1404 that has no video or does not post. I also don't get the phantom "why didn't it reboot this time?" stuff I used to get all of the time. The only thing missing is the QPI settings which have completely confounded me. CPU-Z says QPI is set to 3200 (meaning 6.4T) but I want it at 8 and have no idea how to make that happen now...

Doesn't loading the gamer OC profile set the 6-core turbo ratio to 44 ?
