post #2171 of 4073
Is there some insight what's the best memory (say 2800 mhz and higher succeeded) for this board?
I got one (with an 5930K)on the mail and have ordered 32 GB (4x8) Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000 mhz C15 with it.

2800 seems pretty strong on 125 strap. I took mine (Corsair DP 2800 4x4) to 3200, but I didn't like the voltage or latencies I needed. Right now I have it stable at 100 strap, 2200 MHz 12-14-14-28 1T @1.25v.

Your CPU's IMC will likely have more to say about your RAM OC and latencies than the board. Also, two DIMMs per channel might limit you a bit as well. But I'll be surprised if you can't manage 3200 at least. GL & HF.

The big problem with this board seems that you can't get the RAM to work at anywhere near 3200. I don't have a problem with that my Ripjaws - F4-2666C15Q-32GRR run at 2133 @ default settings. But they should run @ 2666 out of the box shouldn't they???!!!

I think you should get 2666, or what's printed on the package. However, if you can tighten the latencies a little bit, you'll get the same performance in most applications, often witrh lower voltages. Eg: 2400 C12 is the same as 3200 C16 (CAS ÷ frequency x 2000), or 10.0 ns delay. The higher freq/bandwidth will give you a slight performance boost with very large data transfers (i.e., benchmarks), but otherwise the performance is the same (real-world apps).

Have you tried tweaking DRAM voltage, DRAM current capability, DRAM switching freq, and DRAM power phase control? These can increase stability at higher freqs and/or tighter latencies. (DRAM clck period is best left on auto unless you're experienced with it.)

Another thing to consider is that the CPU's IMC is important here, and that comes down to the silicon lottery. To take some of the pressure off, maybe consider backing off on core freqs and cache freq just a bit and see if you can hit 2666.

But, you know, even aggressive memory overclocking is only going to yield 0.5 - 1.5 ns improvement in actual latency. You'll never notice the slightest difference; only your benchmark scores will change. Still, it's good fun smile.gif

Will try to work my way up from 2200 MHz, 1,25V is pretty low, shouldn't be that 1.35V?

For higher frequencies, yes, up to 1.35 is likely necessary. But for lower freqs with tighter latencies, I found that only a small voltage increase was needed. Right now I've got 1.30v for boot with 1.25v eventual, and no stability issues. That's for 100 strap and 2200 MHz 12-14-14-28 1T. YMMV, of course.

First impression gone frown.gif cpu degradet after 5 min in prime, from 4.5 at 1.2 v cant get now even 4.2 at 1.3 v sad
Edit:
Was have some problems with ram partially detected on xmp, reset it to default, manually set strap to 100 ratio 45 vcore 1.170 memory to 2800 seems to be ok right now but timings are loose of course will try to tune it later

I decided to try BIOS 1302 because it claims "improved stability". So far, good results. I increased DRAM freq from 2200 to 2400 MHz, still with 100 strap and 12-14-14-28 1T. I needed to increase DRAM voltage to 1.35v boot and 1.30v eventual, but it's very stable. Very nice result imho.

I might try to get more out of the CPU core and cache for fun, but they are perfect for 24/7 right now with x44 all cores @1.30v max (adaptive) and x42 cache @1.25v max (offset), decent for the voltage used. Max single core temp reaches 51C under a heavy load (via HWiNFO64), so I'll keep it right where it is for 24/7.

(In case anyone's wondering, I had stability issues with adaptive voltage on CPU cache, but offset is working great there. Adaptive is working great on CPU core.)

Does anyone know what the new features in 1302 are?

I noticed that I can get to 2666GHz now with 128GB DDR (before, I could only get to 2400). I used auto-timings, which gave me 16-18-18-36 CL2, if anyone's curious. 1.4V DIMM voltage.

Don't know about previous bioses but have a question can u run in chrome at youtube aerials 4k 60 fps turn on information for nerds and check if its dropping frames ? on my old pc what was 4790k@4.4 16GB @2400 gtx970 was no frame drops now my current rig 5930k@4.5 16gb 2800 gtx titan x its dropping frames
