Asus Maximus Extreme Z coming in tomorrow. Checked QVL for ram and this isn't listed. Have you used Vengence 4x4gb? - Page 3

Alright after updating the bios and clearing the CMOS and then applying the XMP profile 1 (for 1600) it seems CPU Z is showing DRAM at 800MHZ where as before it was showing up at 600MHZ but in the bios it still shows at the GPU.DIMM.POST DDRS 1333 but running at 1600.... Here some CPU-Z pics

Actually that's enough info right there. Looks like you're running at 1600 as you intended. Your memory apparently defaults to 1333 but will run at 1600, and the XMP knew that and set it properly. CPUZ shows it as 1333 because that's what the internal ID on the memory shows. No idea why Corsair did that, but it's working as you intend now. Also, check the Newegg link that you posted in the OP. The first review says this:

"This memory runs natively @ 1333MHz per its internal ID, but is rated @ 1600MHz. This is normal. Simply tweak your BIOS clock up to make it 1600MHz and you're running at its true 'average' speed."

That said, you might want to grab a thumb drive anyway so we can help you OC the 2600k in the future.

Thanks for help and the info on the 1333MHz corsair internal ID. My HAF 932 Is coming in today in about 2 hours and I will be installing
the corsair H100 in it and let the overclocking begin :-) I had a break between lunch so I picked up a thumb drive biggrin.gif. Plan on
overclocking today and my target is about 4.6-4.8ghz. I also will slightly overclock my 7970 but first lets push th 2600K and see if it will
be stable up to 4.6-4.8. I have been reading the overclocking guide tutorials and it I do have a great deal of networking and computer knowledge so the guide makes very good sense and because I am a licensed electrician I understand voltages biggrin.gif What would you recommend I do
first for overclocking? or should I use the auto-tune turbo feature to see where it brings me?

I wouldn't use autotune because it sets the voltage to manual, which effectively disables the voltage stepping that accompanies speedstep. Some people don't mind, and turn off speedstep and voltage stepping. But it will increase your CPU's longevity, and help your power bills, to leave all of that enabled. All I would do is change the multiplier (x46 in your case) and set the voltage to "offset" (but leave the offset at 0.00 or "auto" to start), then set Load Line Calibration ("LLC") to at least 50%, if not 75% (but start at 50%), and then boot up. Once in windows, I would open Realtemp (click the button with the running timer in the upper right to change the readout to VID) and CPUZ, and then run Intel Burn Test or Prime 95. That way, you can check for stability, but you can also watch the voltages go up and down as the CPU multiplier steps up and down, and see if you're feeding the CPU the proper voltage, as opposed to too much or too little. Based on the gap, if any, between VID (shown in Realtemp) and Vcore (shown in CPUZ) you can gauge whether or not you need to increase LLC to 75%, or if you need to adjust the Vcore offset. As I mentioned above, with my 2500k, the sweet spot was x45, offset -.04, and LLC at 50%.

Thanks! I will be giving it a shot as soon as the case gets in and I get back. I will post results or if I run into issues.

The rig is complete and everything is working great! Spending almost 4 hours on cable management biggrin.gif here are some pics. Today I will see what can be done with the overclocking. A question I had
was what about iGPU and Virtu, should I disable that because I am using the 7970? If so, what options do I need to disable? Thanks!

Looking good. Leave the iGPU and Virtu settings alone. The ME4Z assumes you're using a discrete GPU and automatically sets those items correctly.

Great! Thanks for the info. I will try the overclocking in a little bit and see what happens. I like the ROG connect that came with the board too.

Tried OC but it dosen't seem to make any changes. I set the multiple to 4.2 enable LLC at 50% and what happens is the Sata 2 my intel SSD is not recognized
