There's nothing in the QVL section for any of those kits

There will be soon I'm sure. If you filter by quad channel, you will get different results.

I mean.. you said they updated it. I'm wondering what kits you are talking about because your link already filtered by quad channel kits and none of those had anything under QVL.

quick question for you raja, when stress testing a 32gb memory kit using the stressapptest as you suggested, I know you suggest the 1hour for that benchmark thread.. but what would you say is the minimum when stressing for 24/7 use? ~4-8hours? more?

Then you've just answered your own question, unless you are not clear on how many channels there are per platform. That was as if to say - if you filter by dual channel also you will see 4 DIMM kits specified. I'm sure you can figure out the rest wink.gif

Stress App is not a measure of performance so there is little reason to run the test otherwise, so it is implied. 2 hours should be sufficient

I prefer to use the flashback method rather then do it in the BIOS because I've heard it's the better way to do it, in BIOS might have trouble loading some low level settings etc.

Any suggestions? redface.gif

Reading the manual is your friend. Unlike my old R5E where the USB flashback uses the 2.0 port below the button my X99-A II uses the bottom blue 3.0 port. rolleyes.gif

Not measuring performance, checking stability, as implied in the post.. so the 1 hour test would not really prove 24/7 stability/use. - and seems weird that 2 hours would be sufficient on a 32gb kit for stability testing - but if that is actually sufficient it would be great, how many passes would that do?

Also.. you gave the link to quad.. and then said filter by quad. So.. no, I did not answer my own question. But I filtered by dual just now out of curiosity, and none of those kits have updated QVLs either. I just find it weird that you make a post saying QVLs have been updated yet every single QVL listing on DDR4 kits for dual/quad channel are completely blank. Do you have some kind of G Skill contact or something, that you are posting that QVLs are updated before anything is even up there?

I think you're reading too much into it, on both accounts. The new kits had all been added, so I wasn't to know that the QVL tabs were blank at that time - I hadn't gone through them all. If you're unable to understand how filtering by quad channel helps you, then I don't know what to tell you.


Checking stability wasn't implied in your post as you were suggesting one would run Stress app for anything other than exactly that, by asking for what is good for 24/7. The answer being exactly what is written in the guide, which is 1 to 2 hours

increasing the test duration provides an increase the likelihood of revealing any instability tho running up to 3h in 1h increments did not make a difference with 64GB. What may be more relevant for a day-driver or 24/7 stability (not meaning a rig that is under high load conditions for days-weeks, this requires a different approach) is several 1 hour runs with warm and cold boots (training) between runs.

running 64GB at 3400 with a couple of hours GSAT gives me high confidence that the ram is stable anyway. The thing with gsat if your regular OS is Windows - it does not seem to roll Cache into ram stability.

Ah a real reply. So are you saying when im testing on linux this is also actually testing the stability of my cache much better than it would on windows?

Opposite, GSAT does not factor in Cache like HCI Memtest (Windows) would when stability testing.
