Anyone able to get very high memory speeds stable on these boards? Greater than 2000?
I've got a P8Z77 WS with a 3770k at 4400 MHz. My memory is 4x4GB G.Skill Tridents that are rated for 2600.
I can't get them prime95 stable past 2133. For sure, I can boot up at 2600. But prime fails almost instantly.
Obviously, my memory is at 1.65V. I set Vccsa to 1.20V in BIOS just to get to 2133. At the stock Vccsa (just under 1V), I can't get any decent overclock at all
So it seems that overclocking the RAM, even to it's rated speeds, depends highly on Vccsa. Is that right?

In a review of the MB on Tom's Hardware, they claim they passed 2666 stable on Vccsa = 1.20V. But I don't know if that means they passed 10 minutes of OCCT or they ran prime95 on the memory mode for a few hours.

For starters, you're using up all four DIMM slots. Try 2x4GB and see if you can get it stable. Also try setting your DRAM Voltage to 1.70v when using all four sticks.

Instead of or in combination with manually setting VCCSA, try setting DRAM Current Capability to 130%. It doesn't change automatically like it does when manually overclocking the CPU.

Hey guys!
I'm new to computer building and had a question regarding the Maximus V Formula that I'm waiting for to start my first ever computer build.

I originally wanted the H100 for my 3770k CPU because the ivy bridges get hot and custom water-cooling hardly cools better than the H100 (according to what I read on these forums).

But, since this board has water-cooling ports for the board itself, the H100 wouldn't help with that and I would feel cheap not utilizing the motherboard ports while using watercooling for the CPU.

Should I:
i. Ditch the H100 CPU cooler for a much more expensive custom set up that includes the motherboard ports?
ii. Continue with the H100 for the CPU but buy something extra for the motherboard water cooling ports?
iii. Ignore the motherboard water-cooling ability and settle for H100 CPU cooling only?

If the motherboard is intended to be cooled by water I think you need to use a water loop. I'd double check to make sure passive air cooling is effective if you don't run water through it.

Why buy a water cooling board if you are not going to water cool it?

The mobo is intended for both water and air cooling.

Well if it was me I'd opt for a custom loop. An H100 is $100 or so, you are already halfway invested into a customer loop (or about) at this point. The H100 is only as good as top end Air coolers, and with the ease of looping the motherboard as well I'd take advantage of the extreme water cooling setup at your finger-tips.

That is what I'd do with a motherboard like that.
