Asus Maximus Extreme Z coming in tomorrow. Checked QVL for ram and this isn't listed. Have you used Vengence 4x4gb?

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, Proud to say my Maximus IV Extreme Z and i7 2600K will be arriving tomorrow after returning my Crosshair V and selling my AMD FX8150 and what I did was keep the ram. It's not the QVL and I'm wondering if anyone here has used it successfully in this board. Here is a link http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233143 and also it's a CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9. Thanks guys!!

I don't personally have that RAM obviously, but I can't think of any reason it shouldn't work. I'd say you're good to go.

Your good. Here is a tip for you. If it wont post put one stick of memory in B2 then boot to bois and set memory speed and voltage to 1.5

Thanks for the advice. Troubleshooting 101. Luckily I know the ram works and ran memtest when I was using the Crosshair V but I could see how some parameters need to be changed in order to boot or if some hardware tricks need to be done in order to post. Once I get it up and running I'm going to install a fresh copy of Windows 7 64bit and then update bios and the 7170 drivers, run my speed test and O.C. I'm using a Corsair H100 to keep it cool. I'm aiming for about 4.8ghz

You should be fine at factory settings (1600, 1.5v, and 9-9-9-24). Nevermind the QVL (it seems that Asus is too lazy to test popular ram). Set the XMP and you'll be golden. I'm using the same board with a 2500k and some G.Skill Ripjaws at 1600, 1.5v, and 8-8-8-24 (all factory settings, but its 2x4 not 4x4), and XMP nails the settings even though my sticks aren't on the QVL. I agree with the previous post that suggests testing settings on a single stick in B2 before you install the rest.

Also, the memory slots are a little close to the socket on the ME4Z, but you should be good getting all 4 sticks in there as long as you're careful installing your H100.

I'm using a Hyper 212+ (non-EVO), and I need to remove one of my sticks (B1) to get the "push" fan onto the heatsink (there's plenty of clearance to put it into B1 after the fan is attached, but I doubt I'd have room to fill the A1 slot without low profile spreaders.

I'm stable at 4.5ghz @ 1.3 vcore under load. Idle temps around 28-30C, heavy gaming temps around 50C, and Burn Test around 70C. I had it stable up to 4.8, but temps and Vcore were a little high for my taste (80C under heavy load and over 1.4 Vcore). For the ME4Z bios settings, I've found that the best way to get VID and Vcore as close to matching as possible (assuming you're going to leave C3/C6 enabled), is to set LLC to at least 50% (you probably need at least 75% if you want to push to 4.8 or higher), and then set the Vcore offset to a slight negative value. I'm using -.04, and my VID and Vcore are almost spot on at idle, load, and heavy load. If you're OCD about getting voltages to match up and want some BIOS tweaking tips, feel free to PM me.

Thanks for all the info guys! I installed everything and system posted no problem. This board is incredible with awesome features! I could not fit the h100 in my NZXT lexa case and the MB barely fits mad.gif so I'm running the stock fan on the cpu and set up the fans to suit better cooling. Side and front intake and top, back exhaust. I'm not even going to O.C yet with the stock fan because last night I ordered the Cool Master HCF 912 full tower and I will eventually do a full liquid cool setup with a dual bay reservoir to cool th CPU and GPU. I formatted both drives installed a fresh copy of windows and loaded all the drivers and in my FSX I'm getting nearly 60FPS at MAX MAX settings at stock speeds! biggrin.gif I love sandy bridge!

The only strange thing I noticed is my ram says it's running at 1600MHZ but it's listed as 1333?? I did manually set the RAM freq in the bios and cleared Cmos.

as long as you set it at 1600 I don't see how it can run at 1333. Sorry but i'm lost on that one.
Congrats on the new rig

Don't manually set the timings...that's only necessary if you're overclocking your ram, and you should only try that AFTER you get it running stable at stock settings. Instead, choose the appropriate XMP profile in the BIOS and you should be good to go. If there are NO XMP settings listed in the BIOS that show 4 sticks at 1600, post back here and I can help troubleshoot, but I'd be VERY surprised if there's no XMP profile for that ram in the ME4Z BIOS. Also, what BIOS version are you running?
