Cache speed is actually 4179:
What I did was put RAM on XMP all my sub timings at Auto except 15-15-15-33 1T, set RAM to 2000MHZ in BIOS on 125 strap, reboot, saw the Auto XMP sub timings which will be lower on XMP when using a low RAM speed, manually set the timings as they appeared in Auto, maxed out DRAM Refresh Interval at 32767, it's as high as it goes. Set DRAM REF Cycle Time to 278, Four ACT Win Time (tFAW) to 20 (4X Read To Pre Time), Read To PRE time (tRTP) to 5. Then reboot into BIOS and reset to 3000MHZ. You may have to use a bit higher DRAM REF Cycle Time then 278 and lower DRAM Refresh Interval then 32767 to get stable at 3200MHZ.
If you're using the 100 Strap try it with 2133 RAM speed. if you PC won't boot after doing that, try one RAM speed higher in BIOS and same thing. You want to manually set the sub timings at the settings at the speed your PC boots at, then HCI test for stability overnight.
Edit: I dunno if it matters but I'm a 5930k and you're a 5820k but it's memory bandwidth so I don't think it really does matter much. Edited by KedarWolf - 7/1/16 at 9:28am
