I'm looking out for this
well there are two sides to the fix which are relayed to me the the awesome BIOS engineer who worked weekends to solve this issue. I thank him so much for this fix! I hope one day he comes on and sees how he has changed people's overclocking, because he is awesome.
Anyways so there was an issue with the generic Samsung and that is that they required a different start-up sequence to bypass some IC thermal thing, not the same as the temperature of the ICs themselves, but more of an internal thing. The OC wont damage the ICs, but anyways this start-up sequence will make it much easier to boot higher memory multipliers, especially for this sticks in particular, however it also might hurt the OC stability of some other high performance DIMMs. Thus this cannot be the default startup sequence like it is on the F10X, so basically he is working on getting the board to only use it with this kit and recognize this kit, perhaps down the road a profile for users to use to boot up higher for validations.
Now some memory likes this sequence some not, it totally depends on the individual kit, but all samsung should like this. I think BBSE boots higher but is less stable, PCS I think boots higher but is less stable, I think Hynix is not much change.
