Running a 5820/5930k with 128gb of ram will be quite the hit on the ole IMC, and unless you have a pretty special one, i foresee alot of issues (although i'm quite happy to be told otherwise!). Not only that... if you want more than 64gb you will be stepping into uncharted terroritory, as Intel says:

"Max Memory Size (dependent on memory type) 64 GB"

On all of the i7 haswell range.

On my wife's old i7-q720m intel states it only supports 8GB ram. I put 16GB on it and it has been rock solid. All of the 16GB recognized and usable.

All i'm saying is it's uncharted territory. Sure that may have been the case for your wife's old laptop, but there's a big difference between 8gb and 64gb..... and if that IMC isn't the best that'll make it even more of a pain in the ass.

Good luck and make sure you report back if it does work! smile.gif

Well I'll be posting back. While I got only 64GB (which is the supposedly max supported amount) it will only be filling half of my memory banks in my Sabertooth. It is sounding very likely that this will function fine come next week when I get it on hand.

I won't be installing 128GB myself for a long while... I am leaving room in the budget for this next item:

Just ordered myself an EVGA 980Ti Classified, from Jet.com for $614. biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

still getting vcore jumping >< the funny thing: on gigabyte X99 SOC Force it was solid as rock

What app are you seeing the vcore jumping in, can you see if multiple different temperature/voltage monitoring apps do this? Is it cpu-z? Hmm not sure if there are more "authoritative" monitors use than cpu-z though but maybe Intel makes something that you can use

CPU-Z and Aida, vcore jumps from 1.20 to 1.27-1.30 everytime running OCCT

Looking for advice here... I'm about to buy a 5820k and X99 Sabertooth and have a hard time finding consistent information regarding correct CPU overclocking.

What I've found so far looks like this:
- In the "AI Tweaker" tab, set the "CPU Core Ratio" to "Sync All Cores" and then set the multiplier value for "1-Core Ratio Limit" (i.e 45);
- Under "Internal CPU Power Management", set "Fully Manual Mode" to "Enabled" and change the "CPU Core Voltage" value (i.e. 1.300000);
- Test for stability and enjoy?

Should the "CPU Input Voltage" be kept on Auto or be forced to 1.8v?

Thanks!

I can't answer your questions directly since while I'm in the same boat, I'm further along with regards purchasing the exact same parts (my board and CPU are sitting right next to me now) but i have not got the rest of my parts to boot the sucker up yet.

Basically I think at a certain point you're not doing yourself any favors by obsessing over which settings to choose, or whatever, because from experience I know that everything will just make a whole lot more sense once it's up and running in front of you. And the BIOS/UEFI these days provide you at a sentence or two of help for almost every single option.

Probably a sane procedure (in high level terms) might be

1. speed step off, push up to 1.25v or 1.3 or 1.2 depending on how much heat you can or want to deal with
2. find stable point after a few boot & tweak cycles
3. tweak ram clocks, timings, voltages. Bunch more boot & tweak cycles here
4. Don't forget to also work on increasing uncore and cache clocks and voltage, as real perf gains are to be had here
5. maybe flip speedstep back on and use offset voltage. This way the machine will be more power efficient when idle. How important this is to you is very subjective.

I get a kick out of conserving resources. Even though my house is now fitted with solar panels and electricity is by leaps and bounds cheaper than before there is still an inherent satisfaction to be had when your device is capable of sipping power when it doesn't need more. In my case I will have a PSU and a GPU which both have 0 RPM fan curve modes, and besides the Sabertooth will let me plug in and control all the rest of the case's fans, so when I can limit power consumed I can experience that golden silence.

On the other hand, it could be true that a good enough cooling solution would stay cool without speedstep/turbo and you can have it sufficiently quiet running 4+Ghz 24/7. This is somewhat even better for stability if you mind the extra power bill and noise.

No idea if anyone has posted this yet or not. The QVL released on 1/15/16 lists two 128 GB U-DIMM.

One is:

is G.SKILL F4-2400C15Q2-128GRK 128GB(16GB*8) DS Heat-Sink Package 15-15-15-35 1.2V

Other is:

CORSAIR CMD128GX4M8A2666C15(Ver4.31) 128GB(16GB*8) DS 15-17-17-35 1.2V

I am about to purchase all of my parts for this setup and will be buying 64 GB of the compatible U-DIMMs from Corsair:

CMD64GX4M4A2666C15
http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-memory-cmd64gx4m4a2666c15

I hope you all find this latest information useful.

http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/LGA2011/X99-A/X99_Series_DRAM_QVL_20160115.pdf: Latest QVL (1/15/16)

These supported 128GB U-DIMM packages didn't exist on the QVL from last March. I'm presuming this will apply once 2101 is applied.

Cool, last night I flipped through my Sabertooth's manual and it definitely said in multiple places that it supports up to 128GB of RAM. It looks very likely I'll eventually be able to load up 128GB with the 5820K.

I am too frugal not to roll the dice to save a few bucks. Ordered me two dual channel G.Skill Ripjaws V 32GB 2x16 kits. they were cheap... much cheaper than $500. Or $400 for that matter. So fingers crossed these two kits will be compatible with each other.
