G. Skill Ripjaws Z series issues - Page 2

post #11 of 12
It is high strain for IMC, but if configured correctly, it will have no stability or reliability problem. If you attempt two separate kits of RAM, you can not use XMP Profile. XMP is designed for the one kit only, two kits you will need to input manual settings. DRAM Frequency, timings, and voltage, then hopefully the motherboard can adjust the rest. For DDR3-2400, you may need to manually boost VCCSA Voltage. With XMP enabled, check to see the VCCSA value. That will be your minimum if you attempt two separate kits.

If you utilize the RAM at a lower frequency, you can lower timings to make up for some performance. A lower frequency will be less stressful for the CPU IMC

Cheers

Ah okay! That makes sense as to why it didn't work successfully right off the bat. Tbh, I actually manually increased the VCCSA voltage a bit when overclocking my CPU. I think its at about 0.92205 if I am not mistaken. It may be higher than this but im pretty sure its around 0.9.

I actually rebooted yesterday and looked at the settings and I guess I accidentally set the ram frequency to be 1866, so I am sitting stable at 1866. The timings I left as auto and they adjusted themselves to be 9-9-9-? (can't remember the last one, will check when I get back).

Thanks again for all the help! I guess I will have to play around with it to really see how far I can push it!
