I didn't want to say, but I'm eyeing down the Maximus VI Extreme. From what I've been reading it seems like Asus has a couple Aces up it's sleeve in terms of Memory OC stability which is what is drawing me to that board or Asus in general.
I just don't get it with this board, it restarts sometimes for no particular reason. I can bench for 2 hours and right after game for 4 hours straight, no issues whatsoever. Then I go to sleep and wake up in the morning to find that my computer as restarted, I just don't like that at all. I've tried narrowing down the issue starting with the ram, the vcore, everything, I can't stop it from restarting over night. Sometimes it can go on for 3 days no restart, then on the 4th night, restarts for no reason. I've paid a good amount of money for the Corsair Platinum and I really want to run it at 2400mhz XMP like it's supposed to that's the big thing for me I suppose.
Sin, you got that guide out yet? I might give it one more go before I return it, I have until July 5th.
it should be out by tomorrow. I have used some memory validations from hicookie and dino gave some input to the max voltage ranges, so I want to give them a chance to look it over first. Since I am on the different side of the globe and they are in TW and AU, I will send it to them tonight and I should have an answer by tomorrow. i will post it most likely tomorrow morning.
Also yes, don't set your uncore that high! lol, take it down to 4ghz or 3.9ghz or something, no need to set it to 45x or 46x, no reason to match it, there is littl benefit, plus most CPUs on air can't do more than 4.7ghz-5ghz uncore at all. On previous chips like ivy and sandy the cache would run at the same speed, but the cahce on haswell has almost twice the bandwidth, so it doesn't need to run at the same speed, Uncore for best performance(really to unbottleneck the CPU should be anywhere from 600-300mhz below the CPU frequency, it also depends what frequency. At 4.5ghz I would start increasing the uncore from 3.5ghz, but on the GBT boards at stock its 39x anyways. Also GBT's memory OC is top notch, check out the results from the corsair competition, and realize that the gigabyte team spent half the time trying to get GTL to work so they could change stuff in the Windows on the fly which ended up not working, needless to say the day after the guy re-wrote GTL from the ground up in 1 day lol that is funny if you think about it.
I have something to show you, i just did this to prove it is possible to do memory OC and CPU OC at the same time.
I ended up using the 16GB(4x4) Dominator Platinum 2666C10 kit, which if I can get stable you should be able to get stable.
Voltages as follows:
Ring voltage: 1.15v
system agent: +0.2v
Auto on both the analog and digital IO.
I disabled all power saving and left turbo mode on auto and set XMP, set DRAM voltage to 1.65v manually, and didn't touch any timings. i think i will make a video. First try I got a 4.5ghz OC with a 2666mhz on all 4 DIMMs on your board.
BTW your memory is on the SNiper 5 support list: http://download.gigabyte.asia/FileList/Memory/mb_memory_g1.sniper5.pdfEdited by Sin0822 - 6/16/13 at 12:13pm
