i7 3820 - 4820 Overclock Club - Page 300

post #2991 of 6499
I did tried everything already...this is actually third set of RAM, first one being my trusty XMS3 2000...no go...16Gb, no way to do it anything above 1600...then I decided to go with 16Gb of Vengeance, 1600 line is the last one to cross, 1 mm over it and then crash...then Patriot IEM, supposedly Intel specified RAM...Intel Extreme Masters Limited Edition...I've two of those...neither separately will do, and no way to squeeze them together at all...therefore I am in the wonder and dark....
Yes I did apply new BIOS, latest one, what a strange flash that was...you got to put it on USB stick then execute, part of which is done under Win then it reboots and you got no idea what is happening for about and 3-5 min...then it start to flash, then just die front of your eyes finally after few minutes it comes to life...so, whatever happened it's new to me.
125 has no chance in this world to work out...it'll just reboot countless times then finally spit out message lie press F1 if you want into BIOS or F2 if you want it to load safe setting...basically I have no idea what it might be wrong. I tested that CPU on X79-UP4 and P9X79 vanilla and it does wonders, but on this one no go...
Which is even worse, mobo is alright, at stock everything runs pretty much sweet...but raise the bar a lil bit...no go...
Out of few reviews I've read...all of them point out this mobo as one good overclocker...so, either I should take this with few shovels of salt I don't really know, but I am somehow challenged....

All AsRock X79 boards are good. Extreme4 is a very good overclocking board if you want to keep cost down. Extreme6 is surely better.

Hey MadMan, thanks....
I wrote a long story about boards hundred pages ago (can't really remember which page). To cut the long story short, there is no need to be a fanboy. Whichever make has good official and forum reviews, just go for it. I would definitely try AsRock Extreme4 or Extreme6 (depending on your economy). They both have very good reviews, also Sabertooth X79 is a very good board which is more or less same price range.

I have the same problem with this CPU and this motherboard. 125 doesn't work and the max multi is 42...
I am thinking about downgrading the bios but I don't know if we can do that on this mobo...

P9X79 PRO also capable board & the performance also on par with ROG & Sabertooth boards but cheaper. The Asrock X79 Extreme 6 is cheaper than P9X79 PRO though.

Well over here the Extreme 6 is £10 more than a Rampage IV Formula..
