how did I not notice this before?

Averion did you try this?

I just went in BIOS and changed my stuff to 1600mhz and put the other one on AUTO
will make a screenshot from before/after and will re-run the 3d mark test again (that i will edit in when its done)






seems like its going the right direction thumb.gif since i put it on 1600mhz in bios, and i got 2000mhz what if i put it 1 higher? like the 1733 or 1866 one?

edit: anything i need to pay attention to so i know its all good? while im typing my second screen starts to feint black for 1 second and back to normal again, ***? does this mean something is wrong?

@bios flashing, i will skip this as it is not needed and it sounds dangerous

definitely try with 1733 and 1866 and maybe even 2000 (you will need 1.65v for that, I think) smile.gif if it works it works.. but to make sure you will have to run 10h~ memtest86+ wink.gif

But it looks like you are getting there smile.gif Keep us posted.

latest 3d mark test: http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/6655968
Graphics Score 9575 Physics Score 7570 Combined Score 7028
got about 400 physics higher then my friend now with same cpu

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/6647875
this is the result when i made this thread @50% clockspeed

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/6650731
here i removed that and i got quite a big improvement

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/6655968
and as linked above my latest with 1600mhz in bios and the other one on auto.

i might try 1733, 1866 and maybe even 2000 but how do i know my ram is working properly now? like i should be able to run 2000 but is it dangerous?

anyway going into a game that requires ALOT of performance to play @arma 2 OA dayz (mod) it's known as the computer destroyer since probably if you run 4x titans you will still have around 60fps in cities.

so BRB smile.gif happy so far! thanks for the help, specially you gambi.

edit: i see you talking about 1.65v will it automaticly go up to that or do i have to manually change that if i try a higher mhz?

Last month I finally was able to upgrade to a 2600K biggrin.gif I had a Q6600 like you have. My backup desktop is also a Q6600. I decided to get my rig on here, but I have to get more pics (yeah, I had a Fatal1ty and made a huge noob mistake and plugged a 3pin fan plug into a 4pin header incorrectly and smoked the board. Some advice, don't work on PCs when you're tired and the lighting isn't that great!!)

Averion, something still doesn't look right with your RAM frequency. The timings look fine, but the speed should be very close to 800MHz. 785MHz is too far off.. I would try other options in BIOS to get the speed in CPU-Z to 800MHz (which is 1600MHz effective of course).

BIOS flashing isn't dangerous, you just have to be cautious. I have flashed many a BIOS. Newer BIOS rev's often come with more options and/or stability. I'm actually going to flash the BIOS on my Asus board soon to the most recent version. I would highly recommend it, though you should have someone do it who has flashing experience.

^^ soo much good info biggrin.gif

I too noticed that 785 vs 800.. I just guessed the chipset was limited in some way.. he can probably tweak it with CPU frequency or something.. but it is 2000mhz blocks.. so he is trying with higher clocks atm smile.gif

I would guess it would auto change.. so keep it on auto.. if it fails to boot.. change to 1.65..
it varies .. but it shouldn't need 1.65 until you get to 1866+

I have to say. DDR3 2200 is very nice on bloomfield



I had to push the QPI/Dram voltage to 1.5v for this but who cares. Haswell in 3 days biggrin.gif

You said you bought Corsair Dominator GT CMT12GX3M3A2000C9. That RAM is rated to run at 2000MHz stock. You should be able to select its XMP profile in BIOS.

It's not dangerous to overclock RAM (or the CPU for that matter) unless you force too much voltage on it. If it's at a clock speed higher than it can deal with, the system simply won't POST. Reset the BIOS and start over. No harm, no foul (Luckily for me I have profiles in my BIOS i can select so I don't have to reconfigure every setting). But for now, we just want you to get your computer running at its stock speeds.

The best way to figure out what your RAM is running at is to fire up CPU-Z and check the frequency. The speed should be half of what you set it to run at (it's double pumped). Something like 799MHz or 801MHz is perfectly fine if you set it to run at 1600MHz, but there's an issue somewhere if it's clocked at 785MHz.

I tried XMP but then i get the error "overclocking failed! please enter setup to reconfigure your system"
I just tried to put it from 1600mhz (manual) to 1866mhz and i got the same error as above.
above 1866 is like 2133 for me so i don't want to do that.

anyone know why i get this error "overclocking failed! please enter setup to reconfigure your system"
when i put it on 1866 mhz when my ram can handle 2000mhz?

I looked my NB frequency and DRAM frequency again with putting my pc to max performance

NB Frequency:3260.4mhz
DRAM Frequency:815.0MHz

so i guess that should look better now, to bad i get errors when trying to put it to 1866mhz/xmp @ bios the error "Overclocking failed! please enter setup to reconfigure your system"
