that's rubbish lol.
You can buy the same g skills (as long as you find it) 3 years later, and just add it on to your system.
Preferably the ram should be the same spec and manufacturer.

People just like to buy the Kits for overclocking purposes.
when you buy a kit you are more likely to get the same fabbed chips so all sticks clock the same.

When you add a stick a year down the road it could have better or worse overclocking, but the base ram is the same.

I just purchased a P8Z77-M motherboard to go along with my intel 3570K. I want to OC the chip to 4.4GHz at the highest, but I've heard disparaging suggestions that motherboards using a 4+1 phase power design can be dangerous when OC'ing to a certain point. Are any of these claims true? I would have gone with the P8Z77-M Pro (6+2 phase), but I've read that that motherboard has a CMOS/boot defect that hasn't been fixed.

Posted little while back that I had trouble installing both the Wireless and Asmedia drivers on Win8, both are now installing ok. I'm not sure if it's because of the update chipset files little while back or some windows update. Either way now I'm experiencing no remaining problems (both worked but I could only use stock MS drivers previously).

That sentence if hurting my brain I keep wanting to read it like this
Code:
The reason I asked this is because I read on a forum that in order to match the ram you have, you must buy it in a kit

but its not and its driving me nuts! ok I think I need to go to bed now...

To answer your question Ideally yes buy it in a kit. However, I've also bought sticks separately that have worked fine together in dual channel (I'm guessing thats what your asking about)

you can even put missmatched sticks in and your mobo will figure it out and run it in a "pretend" dual chan mode...I dont remember what its called right now cuz I'm really tired.

just make sure they're the same speed and timings and you should be fine.

or are you talking about populating 4 slots? in which case most mobo manuals I've read say that they NEED to be identical sticks...BAH! I think I've had 4 sticks in every machine I've ever had that could take 4 sticks and didnt overclock, and I've not noticed any real world problems (or decreased speeds) when using 2 matching sticks or 4 sticks (2 pairs that did not match eachother)

I feel like that was really disjointed and that i'm rambling so I really am heading off to bed

P8Z77-V DELUXE BIOS 1709 is it me or another bug 1709 resets the bios to default settings after around 6 - 7 reboots?
I remember a bug in 1617 where bluetooth cannot be disabled, 1504 is about the best for me without any bug

Yeah I found that out a week ago. I was restarting my computer after a successful overclock, then it stalled, and all of my saved OC profiles in the UEFI were gone. mad.gif

Thankfully I saved a few onto a USB drive but still... come on Asus!
post #908 of 1288
Is that just with the Deluxe board or with all board versions?
I'll update to an older BIOS if it is a bug with all versions.

Dunno. That is the only non-ROG Z77 I've tested thus far. I noticed last night when switching out my 3770K for a 3570K that the BIOS gets corrupted or reverts to the incorrect settings. After loading the optimized settings and changing a few other things it would BSOD when entering Windows. So I did a BIOS Flashback which solved that issue temporarily.

I haven't ran into this problem with the Z77-V, have had to play around to try and get BF3 working.
