ASUS RIVE and 3930k advice?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
im new to this rig havent upgraded in years and I decided to pretty extreme with it... I need help getting a clean over clock Im running a radiator right now.

corsair h110

any advice ... the only stable overclock I can get is 4.25ghz and I want to get a little more squeeze.
also wondering why my corsair vengeance 2x8gb 1600mhz is running at 800 mhz ..... any suggestion? anything is helpful... been looking at guides but not really getting the niche of things

DDR=Double data rate - multiply DRAM Frequency by two and you get your rated speed



This is mine. Its rated at 1866mhz

okay so I am getting the right speeds on the ram... I figured I would.. Im planning on getting a quad channel but would it make any difference if I purchased another set of dual channel memory same as what I have now?

as long as you have them setup correctly, yes.
X79 Quad channel memory is basically 2 Dual channel setups
Channels AB and CD are bound separately in the Bios, so as long as you have a matching set in AB and a matching set in CD you should be fine. thumb.gif

so then I can just have another pair fo the same ram and it would work as quad channel.... thats what I assumed but this dude at tiger direct kept telling me im better getting off 4x4gb . twice before doing the whole 8x2 gb vengeance ... its something im debating on getting withing the next couple of weeks I want it for extreme editing and extreme gaming... even though my video card is a 660 ti 2gb the 3930k made up for a lot of frames





also with the overclocking any settings I should put in to get a clean 4.6 stable... I mean i put in xmp and I had to restart my bios a few times.

getting high clocks is really going to depend on how well your 3930k can overclock and how cool you can keep it while doing so.
As far as how far to overclock, that really depends on what you plan to do with the system. If you are only going to be playing games, stick with 4.2GHz, I find it is the best blend of performance and power usage and my NH-D14 can handle it.
I wouldnt go farther than that unless you plan on doing something like Folding. In my experience getting anything past 4.3 was difficult but if you read up on the guides in the CPU stickies, and take the time to do it right you could get to 4.6.

If you are going with 8x4 GB, you may have more difficulty achieving higher OC's since it will stress the IMC more.

The only problem with not buying a quad channel kit is that the sticks might not be able to run with the xmp profile settings and you might have to run them at some different frequency, but that's pretty unlikely. So there's a small chance of having to tweak a bit more but with a proper OC you would do that anyways.

Other than that a dimm is a dimm, not going to make any difference if you go with two kits instead of a single one.

And just as a tip unless you run apps that specifically benefit from tons of memory bandwidth you're not going to see a difference going from dual channel to quad channel. I have 16 gigs on hand but I often only run 8 for better CPU clocks, actually improving the system perf.
