Asus Z77 Series Information Thread (drivers, BIOSes, overclocking, reviews) **UPDATED 4/22** - Page 61

post #601 of 1288
Hey guys,

I upgraded from a 2500k to a 3770k last night. I have this ram x2:

http://www.crucial.com/store/partspecs.aspx?imodule=BLT2KIT4G3D1608DT1TX0

Package: Ballistix 240-pin DIMM
Feature: DDR3 PC3-12800
Specs: DDR3 PC3-12800 • 8-8-8-24 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR3-1600 • 1.5V • 512Meg x 64 •


Now i know that with SB and Z77 board , the ram is limited to the 1333mhz speed and 9-9-9-24. One of the reasons I went ahead and upgraded to the 3rd gen.

When I installed the IB i7, the RAM still showed as the slower speed and timing in BIOS.

Should it have corrected itself? Or do I need to to set the speed/timings manually?

Would a MemOK! reset fix it?


Anyone ever have the same issue?
WOO HOO!

It's normal. Set the XMP profile if it has. Otherwise, you would have to manually change the timings.

Speaking of XMP, this is my first Intel board/memory that supports the feature. When I enabled it on the P8Z77-V LX it not only set the memory profile, it also disabled my turbo mode and the CPU runs at 3.8k on all cores full time. Any other things XMP does?
post #604 of 1288
That's weird. XMP is suppose to change only the RAM settings. When I set XMP profile for my RAM on an Asus P8Z77-V motherboard, it doesn't affect any CPU settings; it only changes the timings (ie. 9-9-9-24-2N).

I think its odd as well, I'm going to do a complete battery drain and see if it works differently.

I don't really notice much temp increase idling at 3800, but I don't really feel any performance boost not using the turbo feature.

CMOS clear causing a new issue, now F8 is not bringing me into the BIOS. The initial time after clearing CMOS, error and hit F1 message brought me in fine.

I see the difference, I'm selecting X.M.P from the Ai Tweaker, which says in the help bar that it adjusts BCLK, memory and CPU settings.

Is there a place to just select the XMP profile for timings?

If you want to just change the timing only, the go into AI Tweaker > DRAM Timing Control.

Is there a auto X.M.P. profile setting there? Because I know I can manually set it, I was trying to find an "auto" setting for the XMP data in the SPD.

I know sounds trivial, but was trying to utilize an advertised feature.

You have 3 choices:

1. Set XMP profile in AI Tweaker (even though it says it'll optimized CPU ratio and BCLK freq, it won't change anything CPU-related bc you can still change them manually--look in your screenshot).
2. Manually change the timing in AI Tweaker > DRAM Timing Control.
3. Leave all timing at default setting (not recommended).

I suggest option 1.

Going with option 1 putting the turbo ratio back to Auto.

I have a bigger issue now, I upgraded my BIOS to a version 1106 and it appears ASUS pulled it from their website. It had notes like Increase system stability, and Windows 8 support.. So I tried to revert to the the latest version on their site, windows refused to boot with it, it crashes and comes to the Windows Recovery/Startup Normal. So now I'm back to 1106 and my system is doing odd things.

This might be the first time I'm going to get hosed by a bad BIOS. I've cleared the BIOS both times, but am wondering why the clock doesn't get reset.. shouldn't the clear jumper whack it all out?
