Its not just this board though. I got an Asus Z77 Deluxe that the sticks won't do over 1866 with my 3770K. When I had my 2500K in the deluxe it ran fine at 2133 same with my p8p67m-pro. Also the issues were stated much earlier in the thread.

So far, testing with my Pi's [6-9-6-24 @ 2000mhz , 2x2 kit] and a set of Patriot D2's [9-11-9-27 @ 2166 , 2x4 kit] is going well. Board is adjusting all memory timings when moved manually.. no "dead settings" found yet.

 

*ie - like Gigabut and 'pull in' settings that do not change anything or affect latency..

I see, Is it still possible to get 4.5 ghz on a i5-3570k with out overclocking the samsung ram?

Well it depends on the CPU, the ram speed doesn't affect the CPU oc. So I can't say yes completely but you got a better than excellent chance. I ran my 3770k at 4.5 with no issues running the Samsung sticks at 1600mhz, I just wanted faster ram so I put them in my other rig and got the 2400 g.skills.

I see i must not understand what ram speed actually does then. I thought if you OC the cpu you had to do the ram to keep the speed up to the same level... I'm pretty inexperienced as far as OC goes as you can see. This is my first custom computer build and i just wanna do it right. biggrin.gif

No problem, you can leave the ram at stock and only oc the CPU if you want. I'm sure its just a bios issue that could fix the Samsung sticks so it will probably get better with some time. It is a new board after all.

Alright thats what i'll do. I'll just run the samsung at 1600 for a few months and if its not fixed i'll pick up some new ram and have this as backup. Are there any other issues that anyone has found with this board?

Does anyone have a nice 1920 x 1200 desktop background for the Mpower?
