They say it is optimized, whatever that means?. Was looking for some hard data! Is ram just ram?

z77 supports dual channel, but you can fill all the slots with a quad channel kit & run dual.
Ram is ram, pretty sure the mpower kit is optimized to match the theme.

Does anyone know how well these rams overclock? http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231536

Still wondering if anyone else board POST cycles many times before booting. I have an MSI Z77A-GD55 to compare now so I swapped CPU's and matched the same OC and it boots first try while my Mpower cycles power 6 to 10 times before it will finally start up.

My board have boot problems with bad OC I think. IMO

I thought that might be the issue, so I set boot retry to 1 for failed OC, and the same hardware at the same settings works perfectly on the other board. What this does it power on for a second and shut back off before it even begins to POST, several times in a row and then it just POSTs normally after that. It didn't do this until I updated to the most recent BIOS (loaded defaults first).

Mine done the same thing yesterday, except it only did it one time before entering POST. I didn't updated the bios so the issue might be somewhere else.
I'll be investigating this further when I come home tonight, see if it was a one-time thing or not.

Edit: Posted fine today. I'll keep editing this post if the issue arise again.

After certain changes are made.. a restart before POST is always warranted... 

 

**A "cycle" of multiple POST before Boot.. is not normal though.

This motherboard doesn't seem to be very stable judging by the comments in this thread, or am I wrong?

Your seeing reported known issues with BIOS updates.. as "stability"..

 

 I have had no issues at all running RAM speeds at cas9 in excess of 2300mhz thus far.. nor had any issues with 3770k @ ~5.4ghz either. BIOS quirks are just that.. and any time a new board is released there are always kinks and preferences to be worked out with the BIOS rev's afterward.

 

I am running the stock 17.1 BIOS.. which I believe is one of the oldest. Newest rev's out for testing now are in the 20.x range.

I think you are mistaken.

Mine is proving to be extremely stable. I have the latest beta bios as well.


When over clocking and boot up problems happen its just a bad over clock or BIOS flash and clearing CMOS and getting to stable BIOS settings usually fixes the problem.

Z77 Mpower does have a back up BIOS chip that is easy to get to with a switch in case the first BIOS gets too corrupted over clocking or from a bad flash.
