Intel recommends 32gb as optimum size although you may use up to 64gb. Slc memory is supposedly better than MLc type for this type of application.

Guys i have a very weird problem and im gonna need your help before i RMA.
I just got a AX860 PSU and i have the dreaded Coil whine issue from it.
The weird thing is it happens as soon as i plug my 220V cord on it and the 24 pin is plugged on the Asrock z77.Ofcouse it stays on when i power pc on
Now i tried to shortwire the psu with the know green black hack and this coil whine issue doesnt happen.
So i guess it the asrock extreme 4 causing it
Also i noticed that it gets stronger if i plug my 3d vision emmiter on while the pc is off ,which get me to idea that this might be a pwer saver issue or usb powering.I have Eist C states off ofc anythign else i can disable just to be sure?
Anyone in here with AX 860 and Asrock z77 extreme 4?Your feedback would be most welcome thank you.Unfortunately i dont have another motherboard here to test

I don't think you need to RMA the board. All the board does is creating a load for the PSU (even if the you did not turn the board's power switch on). I'd fully expect other boards to behave with your PSU in the same way.

Well ASRock was fun. I cant deal with my extreme4 anymore so I bit the bullet and bought a different mobo. We will see what happens.

I ended up going with what I have used for years, Gigabyte. The UD3 board is just the best cost/quality ratio.

I built up a UD5H board a few weeks ago. Nice quality board that a family member is now using.

My latest build is the extreme6 and i5. The extreme6 is less quirky with the PCI slots than the UD5H, but many of the extreme4 and extreme6 over volt the CPU, as referenced in another thread here. I have my extreme6 undervolted with a negative .195 offset and stock frequency. CPUZ shows an idle CPU voltage of .840, which is probably inaccurate. It's idle and prime 95 stable.. Temps are much better this way too.

The Gigabyte UD series board are much more robust and solid than the Extreme6 , which is too thin, but you do get a lot of bang for your buck with the extreme6, especially when you get it for 50.00:D
