ASRock X79 Extreme 11 Owners Issues & Hopefully Fixes - Page 44

post #431 of 1199
With today's video cards they all take up 2 slots because they are double width cards. I can't see how you can put anything in slots 2,4,or 8 when your video cards completely cover them. If you are dual sli'ing then use slot 7 and 8 for added cards. The video cards will work fine as long as nothing is in-between them. If you run 3 cards you use slots 1.3 and 5 and use 7 and 8 for your other hardware. From what I saw on the bridges that came with my board, it indicates 1,3,5 for 3-way sli. Manuals are not always accurate because the board designers don't write them. They use someone with much less knowledge who is good at creating manuals.

Are you using the raid array for booting or just storage. If you use it for storage or a large scratch disk use some of your ram and do disk-caching to the array. I put 16GB of ram as a disk cache on my single Vertex 4 512GB system drive and ran the same test. Remember that it was just 1 drive, my score was 7867. If you disk cache your array then you will quadruple the speed. They don't recommend using it on your system drive because windows updates might screw up your system but it was fun seeing the numbers.

No Caching


With Caching

It's for storage. The 256GB Vertex 4 is for OS and some apps.

I'll stick to not using RAM caching. Performance from the array is already crazy fast for what it's for.

Finally completed this system build water and all. I am having difficulty with RAM though. According to the manual, and what is standard with other Sandy chips, I first staggered my RAM. Could not start up. According to the debug codes I kept getting stuck on CPU initialization. So I pulled them all except for one. Started up fine. I then tested the other 3 sticks of RAM. Tried with another known good set, same problem. I tested the slots which were all fine.

Anyone else have this problem?

I'm running fine with 4 sticks first 2 in A1 and A2. Second two in C1 and C2. I tried to use XMP which did not work either, although I would suspect that is because the RAM is not in the proper slots....


TIA

Yes wrong slots, read this:

Yes I am. That is the only way I can get them to work at all. If I seat them according to the manual I get CPU initinalization errors. (A1, B1 and C1, D1). Literally any other configuration works.

I am assuming there is a problem with these slots. I am not so sure I am going to RMA this board as whatever happened may have been my fault. I cannot remember how the RAM was seated when I tested the board before I installed my loops.

Benchmarking is good despite this, even though I cannot get my RAM to run faster than 1600. I am wondering if I am setting up XMP wrong.

Any XMP help would be greatly appreciated. There are two options in the BIOS menu and I am not sure if I keep RAM speed on auto and if I should change VCCSA voltage and RAM voltage. These are 2400 sticks.

Thanks.

You need to put the ram in slots A1, B1, C1, D1. That is the first quad port assignment. Using A2, B2, C2, D2, is only for the second set of quad channel Ram if you buy a second set
_____________________
Try putting them all in the second slots and leave the first slots empty. If it works then your A, B, C, D1 slots may be damaged. You can also try using just 2 sticks in A1, C1 only or B1, D1. You might be able to narrow down which slot is giving you the error. Check for foreign objects in the slots. There might just be a small bit of dirt or paper in the slot. Turn off all power to the system, unplug it and hit the power button to drain any residual energy. Use a vacuum cleaner with the brush attachment to suck up any foreign debris that might be lodged in the slot. Don't use your fingers or anything that will leave residue on the contacts. Reading your post suggests that A1 and C1 are ok so the problem must reside in the B or D slot. Put one in A1 & C1 see if it starts. Then try adding B1 to see if it starts. Then do D1, One of them will stop the system and then you can isolate it. Check the slot closely. If after cleaning it won't start them RMA the board.

One thing that I have found with the ASRock X79 Extreme 11 board is that it doesn't seem to like any settings above 2133. I have tried 2 sets of 2400 ram but 2133 is the only successful combination using XMP settings. If you can get into the bios which means that it has posted then change your setting to 2133 and see if it works. I have a RIVE M/B as well so I took screen shots of the settings @ 2400. When I get a chance I might try those settings on the Extreme 11 and see if it helps. I am waiting for a new part so I can't try it right now.

After BIOS 2.0, my G.SKILL Ripjaws Z has been stable at 2400 (10-12-12-1T). Remained stable after 16 hours stress testing which included 8 hours of LinX AVX with 28GB allocated at 11 threads followed by 8 hours of Prime95 AVX with 10GB and 12 threads allocated.

In fact, I just did another round of stress testing recently to see if I could get 4.5GHz stable on my 3960X with 1.30V at load (use to be 1.34V at load). 16 hour mix of Linx AVX and Prime95 with the same app settings. Memory was still set to 2400DDR. No errors reported at all during testing.

I discovered that the B1 is the culprit.

I have a rampage iv extreme and manually OC the RAM. I do not use the XMP settings. Someone else said this board has problems getting to 2400. I actually think I have successfully gotten this RAM to 2400 using manual settings. My two sticks are in D1 and C1 working just fine. I am afraid this will slow down any overclocking on this board! I doubt I am going to RMA this board right away. I'll have break down 2 loops (GPU and CPU), 3 rads etc...


Thanks for the help!
