ASROCK 990 + AMD 8350 Troubleshooting and OC Guide! Fatal1ty, Professonal, Extream........ And 990FX Chipset

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
So for one of my builds I chose the AsRock Fatl1ty 990FX Professional board, a AMD FX-8350, and 32 GB of Corsair 1866 DDR3.............

For me and many others it has not been a good combo.... So Im starting this thead just to post and share benched and working detailed setups and info.

Please do not comment or leave posts unless they contain complete Information with the same or similar setup(like different ram or the 8320 CPU) including CLOCKS, VOLTAGE, AND BIOS SPECIFICS. As far as benchmarks and stress testing I will leave that to you for what ever program you choose.

I have found it hard to find specific solid working combinations for this setup online so I figured start one!

First Stable setup with:

Corsair 32Gb Ram
-2X 8GB 1866 ver 3.24
CMZ32GX3M4X1866C10

+

-2X 8GB 1866 ver 3.24
CMZ16GX3M2A1866C10R

RAM IS IN DUAL CHANNEL MODE WITH THE FIRST KIT POPULATING THE A1, AND B1 SLOTS, AND THE SECOND KIT IN THE REMAINING SLOTS:

BIOS: TWEAKING

CPU OC MODE
10%- 4400MHZ

RAM: DUAL CHANNEL
TIMING: AUTO(NOT XMP)
DDR3-1760 SELECTED
VOLTAGE: AUTO
(IF ITS NOT LISTED THEN ITS AUTO OR LEFT DEFAULT)

Still looking great, first time I have been to run this test with no errors with a setup that uses more than one stick of ram. Passed with the full 32gb Installed!
