Help needed for Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 and memory settings + FX-9590

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

Hope i posted this in the correct place...

After some time i finally got everything.

I purchased a Corsair H60 just to check if everything is running properly before i switch to full costum watercooling for the CPU + VRM + NB all will be cooled with a XSPC RX480 rad single loop.
And also will be using the Asus usb flashback to update the latest bios.

This is my first AMD build btw.

My specs:
Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 MB
AMD FX-9590 CPU
Corsair TX850 PSU
XFX R7 250 Core Edition Passive GPU
Kingston KHX 1600C9D3K4/8GX 1.65V (4 x 2 GB) RAM
Samsung 840 EVO 120GB SSD
Intel 40GB SSD

Now unto the manually setting the ram speed to 1600mhz chances are the UEFI bios will use the 1333mhz as default how do i simply manual set the ram to its native spec of 9-9-9-27 at 1.65V in the UEFI bios?

Ive read that: go to--->D.O.C.P in advanced UEFI bios menu
-"A.I. Tweaker"
-"A.I. overclock"button set it to DOCP

And below you should see "hidden" ram settings...
At the bottum you would see some list of ram settings..
Profile#0 wich should have my correct ram settings and then i should select this profile and load button by clicking the profile#0 line.

Save and then exit, i should be done no more tweaking or any ram voltage tweaking required is this correct?

Or should i let it run at 1333mhz at its default i dont want to fiddle to much with my settings because the stock speed of the FX-9590 (4.7ghz - 5ghz turbo) is plenty enough.

If there are other settings that i need to change please tell me mind you i wont be overclocking at all.

Help is much appreciated thanks in adance.

you should be able to run your memory at 1866 or 1600mhz easy

the tools section in the bios has SPD info

Don't do that!

Learn to overclock in the BIOS. If you use those "automatic" overclocking things, when your overclock fails, you won't know what it did so you won't know what to undo neither will you know if it did the "best" overclock. Trying to "un-automatic - ize" a BIOS can be frustrating.

Buss speed times Multiplier = CPU speed. But Buss speed also changes Memory speed.



Use a combination of Buss speed and the Multiplier to give you the CPU speed you want and the Memory speed choices you need.



You can go here to set your memory timings if you need to.



Download CPU-Z to see the effect of your changes.

And if you find some VRM and Northbridge waterblocks, let me know where.

Thanks for the replies guys,

Im not really into overclocking all i want is for the ram to use its native speed of 1600mhz there is a high chance the ram will revert to 1333mhz if left at default setting. In order to make sure it runs at its native speed of 1600mhz as specified by the manufacturer:

Kingston KHX 1600C9D3K4/8GX 1.65V (4 x 2 GB) RAM

Timings as specified by manufacturer: 9-9-9-27 at 1.65V if running at 1600mhz.

I do not want to fiddle with cpu settings since i will let it at stock speeds since the FX-9590 flagship of the FX serie cpu runs at 4.7ghz and 5.0ghz with turbo is plenty enough for me.

So if im correct changing the ram settings also has an impact on the cpu settings which also needs to be adjusted? In that case is it not better to just run it at 1333mhz ie "default"?
Or if possible can some one help what to change exactly if its not to much to ask as long as it not involves to much changing settings or start really overclocking.

For the waterblocks for this motherboard the Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 where there is no full cover block one needs to revert to universal waterblocks i ordered them at "www.highflow.nl" which is a Dutch site in the Netherlands i do think they ship towards foreign countries.

I used:

Koolance Cpu-380A.
Koolance CHC-125 (MB).
Koolance MVR-100 (MB VReg).
Koolance MVR Heat Transfer Plate, 140mm MVR-PLT140.
Koolance Liquid Coolant Bottle High-Performance (4 x 700ml).
Aquacomputer Aquastream XT pump.
Aquacomputer aquainlet PRO 150 ml reservoir.
XSPC RX480 Radiator.
PrimoChill PrimoFlex Advanced LRT 1/2 ID - 3/4 OD - Bloodshed Red (3m).
Bitspower Matt Black compression fittings 1/2ID - 3/4OD.

It doesn't involve any overclocking.

FSB x Multiplier = CPU speed
200 x 23.5 = 4700 <--- this is your speed now.
204 x 23.0 = 4692 <--- same
209 x 22.5 = 4703 <--- same
214 x 22.0 = 4708 <--- same

See, there are a lot of combinations of FSB and Multiplier that will result in the same speed you have now.

All you have to do is find the combination of FSB and Multiplier that keeps you where you are for the CPU, but gives you the memory speed choice you need.

Thank you for your reply,

I will look into your recommendations setting regarding ram timings when i assemble my pc tomorrow.
Thanks again.
