Looks like 2400Mhz is a no go. I could pass HCI memtest but I am getting random freezing /locking during games. I backed off to 2133 for now but was able to up the GPU to 1030MHz. I've also mimic'd the A10-5700 CPU speed settings as I'm shooting for a reduced wattage small enclosure setup. I still have my magic 30nm Samsung's to try out.
Hi guys, small update.
I received my Mobo and new RAM + Noctua cooler. I realized pretty fast I can't install my new Noctua cooler NH-L9A as it requires a damn backplate to be installed but these motherboards don't allow for that a they don't follow AMD standards for socket clearance. I think I may be able to rig it up using some plastic washers but i'll likely need longer screws as well.
Anyways for now I'm just using an older stock AMD cooler for the A10-5800K CPU and have disabled turbo boost and running it at 3400mhz with a voltage of 1.35 volts (undervolts to 1.32 according to CPU-z under load).
Some good news - So far I have that new G.Skill RAM (F3-2400C10D-8GZH) running at 2400Mhz at SPD timings (10, 12, 12, 31, 1) stable albeit with no long term stress testing. I had to increase the NB voltage to 1.45 and the DDR voltage to 1.67 to pass heaven benchmark and am now running 3 iterations of HCI memtest which I'll run for a few hours before I call this really stable.
I can tell you that compared to the A75 ASRock ITX this thing has a proper voltage setup and heat seems to not be an issue. Even while running 3 iterations of memtest I can keep my finger on the heatsinks which only feel warm. This is a huge improvement over the the 75. I guess if she dosen't blow in a few hours I'll know it's a win
Anyway, if you guys want any specific testing let me know. I'm tight on time but may be able to run a few tests over the next few days.
So far so good! Edited by Madpacket - 2/11/13 at 6:34am
