I haven't had much use for more than 16gb of memory, so I don't think I will ever go to 32gb unless someone is giving it away. With a linux VM, 2 games, 8-10 browsers open, skype, vent, ect. ect. I have only been able to use 12gb of memory.

I don't have much use for more than 16GB either. If I really thought there was a significant performance difference between DDR-1600 and DDR-2133 on X79, I'd consider only running 4 DIMMs (though I'm not certain I could get stability with DDR-2133 either). The only reason I got 8 sticks instead of 4 is because the price was reasonable and I thought I might try playing around with ram disks. And of course the novelty of having 8 DIMM slots biggrin.gif

I did get a bit of a shock when I installed Win 7 with 32GB of ram and saw that Windows was taking something like 60GB of space. Then I remembered that Win 7 likes to set the page file to match physical memory size...

Thanks for your input! Has anyone else reported any success with memory overclocking using more than 4 DIMMs?

Anyone using XFast USB with their Asrock? I was testing my USB 3.0 drive in Atto Benchmark and the results with and without Turbo were practically identical.

Finally got "official". Had some issues with new build but have it squared away and have sent validation.

Hi all. I have successfully oc'd my 3820 on my x79 extreme6. Please critique my parameters and let me know what you think:


Ram timings set manually to 9-9-9-24 @ 1.35 per specs
LLC set to 5 (really am confused as to what this should be at)
Multi at 44 (clocks down to 43)
vcore set to offset at -.005
DDR3-1600 specified

Everything else left a default


I ran P95 for 12 hours and everything is stable. My avg temp was about 58C and my max was 63C. My cores called 0 and 3 were always hotter.

My vcore ended up being 1.238 or so


So a few questions:

* Does everything look setup correcty on my OC? Am I sending to much heat or volts somewhere by leaving alot of stuff on auto?
* How are my temps for my voltage? Is this a good chip?
* should I push for more and what is a safe temp or voltage for these chips?
* So when I set offset voltage, my vcore pretty much gets set for me correct?


Let me know any advice. I would like to get closer to 4.5 or 4.6 but I don't want really want to disable the power saving features and I have heard that has to happen for stabiilty once you start messing with your bclck....

The BCLK adjusts the base clock for the processor. As the base clock goes up, the PCI, memory and SATA bus speeds will go up as well. Now, the motherboard will "STRAP" the BCLK to a certain bus speed after it changes enough. So from 100-116 it will strap to 100, from 117-148 it will strap to 133. I would only go over 100 or 133 by +4, until you hit the next strap.
So you can set it from 100-104, 118-137, while still keeping your hardware safe. Anything from 105-117 risks damaging your hardware and you will be plagued with instability.

Are you sure on the BCLK numbers? Some with the 3820 are setting it to 105x43 so they can keep the power saving features. It would be nice to set it even higher and get a 4.6-4.7 OC and keep the power saving features on.

Everything is set up fine for your OC, I prefer to use a lower offset or fixed voltage and a different LLC.

LLC is from level 1-5, at level 1, the load voltage is highest, a level 5 it is lowest. It makes more of a difference when you get to higher clocks, because the load pulls extra vcore, and you need LLC to stabilize the chip.

You chip seems about average, it is hard to tell with out going to 4.5ghz +

At offset voltage, with speedstep enabled, your CPU will clock down at idle and you vcore will go down at idle too. What really matters is their values relative to each other at full load though.

Disabling the power saving features doesn't make much difference, as far as power is concerned. The majority of your savings are with speedstep, and even then, your power savings are very small with C1E, c3, c6, ect.

My new build. http://www.overclock.net/lists/display/view/id/4115050 smile.gif

I haad a X58 Gigabyte mobo before. I'm pretty excited to get this monster up and running. Now I just need a proper GPU.
