not sure about why that is bro, sorry..
but if CPU-Z says dual channel and 800.0 (+/-) RAM then I'm going by that..

Yeah it's weird, changed it to XMP, shows 1600Mhz and CPU-Z shows 800Mhz, did another test and got a slightly higher score, still showing a different RAM speed. Well check it out though, I think I'm hitting Titan territory now (stock though). This time I got 3.9Ghz with a higher score, my computer must be screwing with me. http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/6645855

STEZHD - Got exactly same problem. XMP set up, 1600 MHz, 800 MHz in CPU-Z in dual channel so it's fine.

But 3dmark shows 667 - don't know what kind of annoying bug is this, but it also probably lowers my physics score (it's 700 points lower than other 3570K clocked to 4,5 GHz showing normal RAM speed).

Also in my case Windows 8 is the reason.

Try to go to: http://www.futuremark.com/support/systeminfo and update latest sysinfo.

Coming back to my Afterburner problems - it's gone. I had to remove all registry entries related to afterburner, reinstall it and it works like a charm now. 1296 MHz +30Mv core Kepler boost, 1385 MHz +90Mv core kepler boost - crazy OC'er smile.gif

Thanks for trying but it still didn't fix it, I did hit 4.2Ghz with an i72600 which I think is pretty awesome... here's proof http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/6646085 really weird though I'll have to look into it, overall I'm happy with my scores, it's enough for a day and when I have my H80i installed I'll post up some new ones to see if lowering the temp helps out the CPU with its performance (it's throttled like crazy before, hitting like 89 degrees in a few minutes).

the non K can OC 4 bins through turbo , so a 3.8 max should go to 4.2 .
I would check your core voltage though, the auto-OC sometimes raise it higher than needed .

4.1 probably doesn't even need more than stock and even 4.2 if it does would be small amount . you can see voltage with CPU-Z or any hardware monitor .
If you look at the SPD tab it should show all profiles the ram supports . you might have to change slot to see data .

Not sure on your MB but I think most P8Z77 if your using only 2 sticks it will go into slots 2 and 4 (meaning the one nearest to socket is empty , but check your manual , you can DL it in PDF format at Asus site .

Yes, use DIM_A2 and Dim_b2 which is 2 and 4 slots .

covered all that...

ok, I read through post fast and thought he might have been using slots 1 and 3 by mistake .

I never tried it in other slot, it may work but MB makers say 2 and 4 slots for Z77 . you can see most all reviews with 2 sticks have first slot empty , of course some HS will not allow to even install mem in that slot if it had big HS on it with large coolers .

I didn't know that, thank you though, I'll swap it to slots 2 and 4 then. I did read the manual but I must have blanked out, I was too busy wondering why my computer wouldn't turn on (just put the front panel connectors in wrong). One thing though, do you know why they use slots 2 and 4? this is just out of curiosity.

By the way, does anyone have a 3DMark 11 score for two 660Ti's for comparison. This is my latest one http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/6646612
