My advice to you would be to either attempt to run them at a lower frequency or return them for a kit that was binned to run in quad channel on this platform.

Also I don't understand how you could make an assumption that yours is a better CPU than his - whatever that may mean.

Of course I'm aware Praz is Praz but unless he didn't work on the minimum vcore at that moment, my 5960X is rockstable 4500 1.19v / 4275 cache 1.2v. Praz's cpu on that screen is 4400 1.34v.
Or it's 4400 Prime95 AVX stable, then I didn't say anything wink.gif

lol - they are binned dual channel, you're running a quad channel board. So avoid XMP. What MB again? (Fill Out Rigbuilder)

Hello,

See Praz's screen posted above, (cpu-z memory SPD) it's that Z170's designed kit ---> http://www.gskill.com/en/product/f4-3200c16q-32gvk

I don't use XMP, only manual settings.

Plus, it's Praz himself who told me these kits would work without problem ^^

Anyway, I'll continue to tweak in UEFI and see if I can at least pass the boot without error code.

You said with this kind of memory, I would take that comment as saying 3200 4x8 is possible.

It's not a sniff at your capability, I wouldn't expect that kit to work without tuning either. See how you get on with 2800-3000, and work from there. Sometimes when new to a platform - shooting for the stars does more harm than good.

Guys, which ASUS X99 mobo has Bluetooth adapter onboard? And which chipset those adapters based on, what drivers do they use? Maybe you could suggest me whata drivers to try in my problem? I don't want to offtop here so please answer in that tread if you have advice
I have X99-E WS so it doesn't have BT onboard

I still have very much to learn about X99 but I'm playing with it since the beginning wink.gif

Anyway, there's some improvement today :





Pass Hyperpi32 at 3200 16.18.18.38.2T
This is with cpu & cache at stock.

Tried one stick at one time until I could pass the boot with 4 sticks.

Now I'm going to try cpu overclock, then cache but I'm not confident that it will work.

I would run that through an hour of GSAT or HCI Mem test before moving on to other aspects of your overclock. Good progress though

Hello,

Could pass Hyperpi32 4500 cpu / 4200 cache / 3200 16.18.18.38.2T at 1.39v



Problem is, stability is erratic and I think it needs subtle adjustements in memory 2nd/3rd timings
Plus, it's harder in adaptive mode and sometime lose a dimm (always D1, but memory stick seems not to be the cause)

I always try Hyperpi32 first since it's really sensitive to cache OC and it's short enough to try different settings after failing the test.

Now I have 2 options :

1 - Running the memory 3000 since it's HCI memtest stable 600% coverage (cpu 4500 / cache 4250). But I'd prefer use adaptive over offset (1.02v in idle / 0.752v for adaptive).
Also, I'm not sure about that but I feel 125 strap brings some troubles for USB/sata peripherals.
My external soundcard (RME Babyface) is connected on USB and sometimes, there's some audio glitch/jitters, especially when intensively browsing the web.

Maybe it's just pure coincidence, I'll see if they disappear with 100 strap.

2 - Strap 100 and memory at 2666 or 2800 with tight timings.

I always heard 2800 memory is hard to stabilize because of the divider. I guess you're at 100 strap but do you use 100:100 or 100:133 for BCLK Dram ratio?

Thank you wink.gif

I've lost dimms due to over-tightening the nearby MB screw - might be worth checking.

go with 2666 at tighter timings (like -2 cas vs your 3000 cas) thumb.gif

Okay I need some help. I have had my system since December running at adaptive 4.5ghz 1.30v 4ghz cache on 100mhz fsb and memory at 2666 15-15-15-40. 5930K and Corsair LPX 2800 kit.

For some strange reason a few days ago my board would not boot and was giving me a vga error, as the led would stay lit. I did some testing with a different video card with the same result.

So going back to my roots I reset the bios to defaults and removed the battery. This allowed me to boot with no issues. I then thought this would be a good time to update my bios as I was still on 1004.

So I updated to 1103. After doing so both cpuz and Aida 64 are reporting weird bus speeds. My fsb is fluctuating between 95 and 99mhz. The memory is doing the same, mostly around 1300mhz which

doubled would be 2600mhz. This never happened on 1004 bios. The fsb would be at 99.98 and the memory was 1333. So thinking maybe I had a weird bios issue I updated once more going to 1502.

This bios revision is giving me the same results as 1103. I am wondering if something has happened to my board? Now to make things even weirder I ran some benchmarks. It appears the benchmark

results are the same as before the update. Should I write this off as sensor reading error? I really would like normal readings if for no other reason then piece of mind.

unless the new bios fixed some issue you were having, just flash back to 1004.
