Damn I bet your rig looks gorgeous thumb.gif I might just buy the bitfenix LED strips and replace the bitfenix spectro Pros with the SP 120s. I do really like the sp120s more just because of how much air they push

No like I said the temps are cool. Real temp and core temp both show max temps of only 55C. There is some kind of auto modulation going on. I just can't find what bios setting is doing that. Another odd thing. I can't change the command rate of theme memory from 1T to 2T.

 Check your power settings in the BIOS, under your CPU section.. make sure 'speed protection' is disabled.. and enable the 'OCP' extender option as well. Sounds like your BIOS may be set to limit the current of the CPU..  not entirely sure.. but thats where I would look first.

Close. SB TJmax is 98C. I believe it downclocks there.

Finally figured it out! I had been forced to make overclock changes in the genie section because I could not make changes in the OC main screen. I had been hitting "enter" like for most settings to bring up the list of options/numbers. I didn't realize you just highlighted the CPU multi or voltage and then directly typed in whatever numbers you wanted (without hitting enter). Now we have a stable (constant) 4.85 GHz overclock at just 65C.
Do you think I should still enable ocp extender and disable speed protection?

 If it aint broke.. rolleyes.gif .. I disable them for high clocks.. I have not tested the affects of using them though for daily use. If your stable.. I wouldnt mess with it.. unless your curious and have the time to stability test more.

Is/has anyone tried running "unmatched" memory sticks on this board. (i.e 4x4GB RAM, but from 2 individual kits).

I've got 2 2x4GB kits of Corsair vengeance LP RAM, and whilst they are the same spec (timing, voltage etc) I noticed today in the pack that one had a different version number to the other (one might have been 5.x, the other was 7.x).

Is this going to be a problem with them playing nice together?

Is it usually?

What can I do if they don't want to get along?
post #1249 of 3634
Only if you're running a decent overclock with tight memory timings. You can use me test to see how we'll they work together.

Best I can do with my new Hyko Samsung 2x4GB kit from 12/29 batch is 2246MHZ with 1.55v.

I set my memory speed to 2200mhz with 9-10-10-24 1T with an increase my BCLk a little to get there. This is with my 3770k at 5GHZ@1.45v Vcore.


SuperPi 32m is 6:40 with these settings which matches my best time I had with my Gskill CL9 2400mhz kit that I had over clocked to 2666mhz CL 10-12-12-31 1T at 1.7v ddr voltage.

http://valid.canardpc.com/2618023

I think this kit will go alot faster but my MSI Z77 Mpower BIOS is limiting it in speed settings. frown.gif

Best kit of ram for the money.

This ram helps get my 3dMark11 physics score over 13,000. http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/5249080
