I thought I'm impatient when it comes to buying car stereo/computer parts. You are worse than me Vega haha! Been busy here, slowly building the machine whenever i have some time to work on it. Hopefully I'll have the machine up & running sometime this weekend. Will see. smile.gif

Peace

Still no go on 2133 with the new G.Skill PC3-17000 x 8. I can get closer to the desktop, mind you. It used to fail just after post, but this still will get me halfway through the windows startup process before I get a bluescreen. Oh, well, at least now my ram is piano black, like everything else in my case. smile.gif

Hope you have better luck with the 19200 than I did with the 17000, Vega. Maybe cooling superior to mine will help as well. Getting halfway through windows startup might imply that it's a heat issue now.

Have you tried increasing the VSCCA to help the cpu memory controller? 1.2v max on air, 1.4v max water.

Yeah. No go. The best I got is Windows just sitting there wiggling the glowly logo on a black background for 20 minutes during startup, but I think that's only because some process stalled before the point where there's usually too much activity to survive.

Anyway, I tried 1.2 on VSCCA, upped the ram banks to 1.675, relaxed the timings all to hell, and eventually ended up with something so out of whack that it wouldn't even post far enough for the bios to recognize it was failing multiple times and reset the timings to 1600. Thank goodness for the reset-settings jumper. smile.gif I won't claim I'm a whiz at adjusting memory timings--I could easily be screwing something up out of ignorance. It's been a long time since I overclocked a system and ddr3 has a lot more adjustable values than what I used to know back in the days of coal-powered video cards.

I think my only option is to put it back down at 1866 and see how much I can tighten the timings. I've read several articles that claim g.skill memory often works better that way, with lower speed but tighter timings. Ultimately, the specific numbers we can whittle it down to, or beef it up to, don't matter. Only the net performance does.

Got my hands on one to test in case anyone else cares. Coil whine is non-existent, but that irritating chipset fan is a deal-breaker. Too bad about the LSI chip and dual PLX chips that necessitate it. Otherwise this'd be my dream board frown.gif

Whats wrong with the chipset fan?

It's fine if you're running a wind-tunnel style air cooled machine and you'll probably never notice it. If you're liquid cooling and optimizing a build for silence, it'll be orders of magnitude louder than anything else in the system.

I guess I didn't notice much sound from it. Then again my computer is in the other room so it doesn't matter. Using the ASRock Extreme 11 I got the highest Heaven 3.0 score over in the benchmark section.

I have 64 GB of 2400MHz G.Skill arriving tomorrow. Should running pretty fast in quad-channel RAM-Disk.

Got my Plextor M3Pro OS drive working properly with the E11. I used the latest 11.5 and it said "this driver isn't guaranteed to work blah blah" and I forced it to install. Now the numbers are great:

No one should be using the C600 X79 Intel drivers those things are horrible.


Even though the controller is unrelated, broke a 4k score on my 8x Vertex 4 array using the LSI on the E11:

Games on that array should load pretty quick onto the RAMDisk. biggrin.gif
