Have not tried this since practical impact is nil. Though it would be of curiosity interest how 128 GB of ECC RAM overclocks. Perhaps I should try this really soon smile.gif.

Added: Just tested increasing the speed of RAM by changing settings in BIOS. From stock speed of 2133 MHz moving to 2600 MHz the system crashed on a graphics benchmark while it is stable at 2400 MHz so I left it at it. It could be some slight increase in speed is still possible by more tuning. In any case, single socket Xeons have no limitations on tuning.

Were you using ECC RAM when you were OCing? I only use regular RAM

Yes, this is ECC RAM and I checked that XMP is permanently disabled with it. Getting 2400 MHz was very easy, maybe 2600 MHz is also possible.

Just curious. Where did you get your 1680 v3?
