Here is my best 3D mark score so far as well.

...that was exactly what I needed. The ram has been set to 2400 and is up and running.

Great !

...and welcome to the 5 GHz club (see http://www.overclock.net/t/678487/5ghz-overclock-club for registering)....I did not think you would get there within a day thumb.gif or so of finishing the build...more likely two days !

Now, keeping in mind that this comes from and Ivy Bridge which differs from 3930K on mem controllers, I found a review of the Trident X 2400 which offered some modified timings re tertiary timings and tRas refresh...using MemTweakIt, I tried them on my 5+ GHz setup earlier today: rock steady in all tests, including Prime95 etc. Best of all, all mem benchmarks picked up, and 3dMark11 - without any other changes - picked up over 120 points ! Free extra performance biggrin.gif

...here are the timings which you may be able to adapt to your type of CPU w/the same Ram:



Next, I like RamDisks a lot, even SSDs don't have a chance...if you got some extra Ram space (never mind adding another 32 GB of Trident X wink.gif ) , you would never want to be without, and the type I am using came recommended from Asus per ROG YouTube vid (keeps Ram disk alive even with system powered off completely - the only price you pay is slightly longer boot-up times from cold boot). The software costs $79 and is also a Microsoft partner...they have a free 15 day trial.

Here are some 'disk performance benchmark' screenshots from my RamDisk system...hoping that you add Ram disk to your build that already is such a killer system (why have steel hub caps on a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport ? rolleyes.gif):





...and see, no steel hub caps smile.gif

...well, that also gave me an idea to do a full post on Ram disk later...but I quickly ran some more tests to also check on the Trident X tighter timing impact:

per above, the original Ram Disk Plus (SuperSpeed LLC) from a few weeks back @ 4.8 GHz



...now, here with the new Trident X timings per above (system brought back to 4.8 GHz to allow for apple-to-apple comparison)...Clearly, the new memory timings helped here as well:



...now, with the new memory timings back up to 5 GHz - showing that CPU speed still impacts, as is to be expected with a Ram disk. Given the speeds your 3930k is running, I expect that you would see major additional benefits

Sorry for double posting, the formatting on mobile is impossble, Great job to Op on hitting 5GHz, and quick question, aren't RAM Disks prone to failure withib a year?

... I think you are thinking of 'what used to be an issue' for SSDs. RamDrive is just your part of your system Ram that is made to work as a hard drive (+ a section on your physical HD, depending on setup).

You're confusing it with old SSD's wink.gif New ones will write hundreds of tebibytes before dying, I remember I read a test on a forum where they ran a Crucial M4 for thousands of hours straight, constantly reading/writing to the disk. It wrote ~800 TiB before it died.

No no, I remember reading an article that Ram Drives tend to fail because RAM in general tends to fail pretty rapidly when used often

I wouldn't think ram has a short life with how many writes it has to do daily!

Thanks for the help guys, I will update the system when I have all the sleeving and modding done and it looks nice and neat
