ASRock X79 Extreme 11 Owners Issues & Hopefully Fixes - Page 4

post #31 of 1199
Since this is my first X79 build, can someone help me with OC'ing my 3930K?

I tried reading the guide on here but there are SO many options to tweak and given the fact that this board is new and since I'm running 4 GPUs, I figured someone on here could help me.

I am trying to go for 4.8GHz but 4.6GHz should be fine as well. So far, I tried the "EZ OC" setting in the UEFI/BIOS and the 4.4 works okay but today the computer just crashed a couple of times. In Prime95, the max voltage I saw was 1.272V. With 4.6, the computer just crashes when trying to run IBT or Prime95. Of course, both of these OC was through the automatic "EZ OC" which is not really a good way to OC a system.

It would be great if someone could guide me through getting this 3930K to at least 4.6GHz.

Thanks.

Did you read Sin's SB-E OC guide? That explains everything really well. Also, having 4 GPU's doesn't matter when overclocking the CPU/memory.

Well, true, it doesn't have much to do with overclocking 8 slots of memory, but I was only talking about installing memory that was running at its intended/rated speed of 2133. I wasn't overclocking it. I have to underclock to make it work with 8 sticks. This memory can overclock to 2400 easily, and past 2500 with effort, at least in a four-stick configuration. It ought to be able to handle 2133 while chewing gum and juggling, but something about 8 sticks of it and this motherboard introduces chainsaws and a tightrope, I guess.

I'll give the highest-rated g.skill memory in asrock's official "yes, you can run 8 sticks of this at 2133 or more" list a try and see what happens. I suspect it's going to be sketchy too, with my newfound distrust of asrock's advertised specs, but we'll see. If it works, I'm sure I can find a home for the mushkin, which seems to work very well in the common 4-stick configuration.

The bright side of this is that the g.skill sticks appear to be black, which solves the problem I've been having with my all-black-and-metal case, my all-black-and-metal motherboard, my all-black-and-metal GPUs, etc., being paired up with these incongruous, bright-red sticks of memory. wink.gif

I did but since his guide is with a Gigabyte board, and I'm new to X79, SB-E, and ASRock, I am finding it hard to adapt it to my settings; certain entries don't even appear on the board we have and there are other entries there that Sin's guide doesn't even touch upon.

Right now, 4.4Ghz with EZ OC "works" but that is lame and I want to push it to around 4.8Ghz, manually. What settings are key to get it there? Of course, V-Core and multiplier but what about the VCCSA (leave on Auto or do Offset) etc.? And I am not able to adjust the multiplier on each core like he shows in teh guide. Are you able to do that on this board? If so, how do we do that?

Actually, before I order... can you or anyone else confirm that 8 x F3-17000CL9Q-16GBZH definitely do work in an extreme11? You didn't specify how many you're using.

I went for 8x4=32GB g-skill ripzaw z 2133 as well based on the memory list posted on the ASRock site for the Extreme 11, should receive the board tomorrow or so, can confirm it once i have it setup sometime next week. I actually am concerned about the RAID 10 speed on the LSI side after I read Vega and the other fellow's postings.... I bought 4x3TB drives for a RAID10 setup .... was hoping that i would get some decent speed with the LSI SATA ports.... I'll see how things will go but I'm not holding high hope after seeing the other postings about how the LSI SATA ports behave....

What I mean is, as far as your CPU is concerned, running 8-sticks that fast is "overclocking" pretty high. It's not your memory sticks being the limit, it's the CPU. Let us know how the new memory turns out. Much harder to clock 8 sticks high versus 4.

Let us know how that memory works out. I am thinking about this memory:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231523

But I have a feeling that I would never get that speed with 8-DIMM's. So it might be a waste of money.

Also, the LSI chip works fine if you flash it to IT mode and run Win 7 software RAID. The LSI chip is a Host bus adapter and not really a hardware RAID controller. I learned not to treat it as such.

Please let us know what speed you get on your RIAD 10. Mine was horrible with 8x1TB disk.

It posts fine with just one pack of four installed, but if install both packs, filling all eight slots, it refuses to post even at its rated 2133. It keeps erroring out after 67 and 5A on Dr. Debug, which are both cpu-related. After three failures, it automatically downclocks the ram to 1333 so I can get into the bios and mess with stuff again.
Notes:
1) It'll post with all eight sticks if they're running at 1866 or lower.
2) It won't post with all eight at 2133 even with extra voltage and/or very relaxed timings.
3) I don't *think* it's heat. I have a 140mm fan blowing right on the sticks. The CPU between is liquid-cooled by an H100. I even pointed a beefy room fan at the motherboard, running full blast. No go.
4) Both 4-packs post fine by themselves in A1/B1/C1/D1, It's only when A2/B2/C2/D2 are used as well that it won't post at the memory's (easily-)rated speed.
5) I don't *think* I'm running short on power. I have an AX1200 and I think I remain far under 1000W at peak, let alone 1200W.
Any thoughts? Vega, you out three? You seem most like to have run into this, if anyone. smile.gif

I have the 993996 mushkin (same memory but diffrent heatsink) and it runs perfectly with 4x4GB. So I ordered another set and put all 8 stick and it does not work well, had to downclock to 1866 and even then all speed was horrible. Dayly work on the computer was all kind of slow, benchmarks also. So I just took them out and sold them.

I know RAM is RAM and, if it meets the specs, it should just work. But sometimes it doesn't.

Please let us konw hot those 8 stick work. I would love to have extra 16GB for my XfastRam disk

The cost of the 8GB modules is just too high for my budget. It is too much of a risk for me to spend $900+ on a set of ram which is not on the supported memory list. it would be another story if I won the lotto... lol

I followed your LSI post and it is what made me feel somewhat better, have to say "thank you" to you and the fellows who helped you for spending the time to do all that research! flashing to IT mode is already on my option list smile.gif
