.... High CPU core speed is more important than a core count over 4 unless you intend to run other applications while running a simulation - something I would not dare do for fear of using up other resources and slowing/interrupting the simulation.
....
Well, that's all I had to say. How'd I do for my first post?
.....
Crucial 64gb ECC RAM (prolly double that after a few CC cycles)
....
Smoke'm if you got em!
Cheers!

Welcome to the club with your impressive build thumb.gif
Just one remark since your application swallows all the RAM you can give it: you have excellent case for doubling the RAM to 128GB using Crucial 16GB ECC RAM modules. This configuration runs perfectly in my system with the Xeon E5-1680v3. The Xeon is excellently overclocking too, 4.3 GHz is easy.

Yes, Thanks!

I should have been more clear but the RAM I have ordered are the 16gig modules - 4 dimm set for 64gigs. I'll add another set after a few cc billing cycles. wink.gif

Anything out of the ordinary on your overclock settings?

Hello everyone,

I just got into the enthusiast world, and I fell in love with this MB from the first look. However, I'm REALLY worried about the negative reviews in newegg. Some might argue that I can just return it and get another one from them, but I live from a VERY remote sh***y country. Waiting is not my problem, it's rather that I have to pay inevitably, since I'll have to use a reshipper. I also tried to search for it in this country, but didn't find it, even if I did, at it'll be at least double the price.

I got an idea which is to have a back mb, but it is a very expensive solution.

please, your thoughts.

No, I just did it standard Asus OC tool and running in adaptive mode. Your processor is 6-core, overclocking should be getting higher than my 4.3 GHz at full 8-core load. For CPU watercooling I am using Swiftech H240-X but probably soon there will be replacement for a full cover motherboard block.

Cool:thumb:

I don't push overclocking on my workstations too hard - would hate to have it crash many hours into an analysis. On my old Sandy Bridge system I played with BCLCK set to 102 and all core ratios synced at 42 with voltage settings on auto (it did not like negative offsets much) and achieved ~4.3Ghz without breaking 75c running prime95 for many hours. That's about as far as I would want to go on that system.

I understand Haswell runs cooler so I'll play with it some but won't likely push it too hard either.


Cheers!


PS: I'm just using a 120 Intel AIO Rad in my old system - Fan starts to sing a bit when pushing limits smile.gif

Xeon processors overclock nicely. I believe your 6-core should be able to go up to 4.5 GHz.

It's really your call. I've had a good experience for over ~5 months with this board. All I can say if you do get it, to hopefully avoid any issues (and for everyone else too)

1) Make sure you don't try forcing in your RAM backwards. Be aware your have to flip the RAM 180 degrees when going across the CPU socket.
2) Make sure you put the RAM in the right slots (they are labeled A1, B1, C1, D1 I believe).
3) Don't enable XMP, regardless of board. I think this causes a lot of problems all around. Just put in your timings and voltage manually. I'd say even 2133 your RAM just to be sure it won't cause problems and then adjust later on after ensuring a stable everything else stock system.
4) When overclocking, go through every single setting in the bios because there are a lot of settings that say "disable (or) enable this when overclocking".
5) Take overclocking slow, and only a component at time. Go for CPU only to start, then CPU + RAM, then CPU + RAM + cache.
6) Manual overclocking mode is a lot easier and more predictable to handle than adaptive offset.
7) Stick with 100 BLCK if you can help it.
8) If you need to clear CMOS, hold the clear CMOS button for at least 10 seconds to make sure it gets cleared.
9) If you using a lot of GPUs like myself, make sure your PLX heat sink (the big flat one that also extends up along the RAM) is actively air cooled. Otherwise your PCH area will run hot under load. I've had this cause random reboots early on, before I started to actively cool it.

That's all I can think of. smile.gif

This then should be treated with watercooling cool.gif

The missing step 10) I have not yet reached. There were no blocks available then, and I can't spend the time to redo any sort of watercooling right now. frown.gif
