I bet some enthusiasts would have rather had one of these OC panels bundled instead.

So do I need to wait on another new bios to become available before selecting a Quad Channel DDR4 kit?

Asus is listing three Bios versions currently but I've heard they are having early issues achieving high memory overclocks.

.

Keep the discussions going!

Regarding the memory, HW-E's IMC was not great when compared to Skylake. 3200MHz with a low primaries in the 14-14-14 range is the sweet spot. With some tweaking, some have even lowered it further into the 13-13-13- range.

BW-E is looking at 3400MHz 14-14-14 for a daily driver memory OC. Again, your mileage may vary depending on your patience and experience with the memory tuning.

Yes and i took gloves to inspect for eventual damages and seen none, i want to open it and use it when i have all the hardware to fill it, just for the pleasure of assembling with new and shiny stuff.

I can't believe new S8S parts are coming to me, you made my day iBro !! wheee.gif If you want some Camembert or a baguette or a saucisson, just tell, i'll send them to you biggrin.gif

I'll have to ask at MemEx about a copy of Doom.

Wow my Gskill Trident Z 4000MHz 2x8GB kit was only $209 USD at Newegg when I picked it up in March. Those Canadian dollars are like Australian dollars, Sheesh.


I'm definitely going with Trident Z again, but I only need 16GB max, so should I do 2x8 or 4x4? thinking.gif

With Skylake and four DIMM slots I've always read over and again to only populate two of the four slots for the highest CPU overclock.

But man, I know nothing about the HEDT and eight slots and Quad Channel memory, I'm really going to have to read up on all this before picking out my memory.

PLUS, Intel is talking about 3D X-Point DDR4 Dimms available soon, that's the only memory I would prefer over the Gskill Trident Z.

I need to study up, my decision last night after midnight to jump into Broadwell E was a bit impulsive. biggrin.gif

Simple for quad channel, you need to populate....4 slots ! That Intel Optane thingy is very exciting !

I appreciate the generous offer of complimentary French cheese, I'm sure it's delicious but it's cool TUFMan, you just enjoy all that glorious CaseLabs gunmetal when it arrives.

+rep for making me LOL over Camembert. biggrin.gif

But man, I know nothing about the HEDT and eight slots and Quad Channel memory, I'm really going to have to read up on all this before picking out my memory.

For the X99 platform, you really want to get atleast 4x 4GB to take full advantage of quad channel for the memory bandwidth. To put it in perspective, an i7 6700K overclocked with 4000MHz memory will just barely match an i7 5960X with the memory at 2133MHz. That's dual channel vs quad channel fer ya.

If you're up for tinkering, buying two 2x4gb kits is doable, but here's an asus guide on why it's not advisable. TLDR ~ lots of tweaking needed and no manufacturer support.
https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?57038-Don%92t-combine-memory-kits!-The-meat-and-potatoes-overview

From my understanding, the whole don't populate all dimm slots to get max OC is true with other mobo manufacturers. This is due to the traditional "Daisy Chaining" of memory traces. With Asus, they've implemented their own trace config labelled as T-Topology. This has been going on for a few generations now and you can read more about it Here.

X99 memory OC'ing is heavily dependent on your CPU as the memory controller (IMC) rests inside the CPU itself. Generally speaking, higher binned CPU's that overclock well will also have a better IMC. Just don't go and expect 4000MHz TZ kits to be plug and play tongue.gif

Currently, GSkill is offering NO 4x4 kits in gunmetal (silver) with the white insert. redface.gif

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=trident+z+ddr4&N=100007611%20600006073&isNodeId=1

IF need be I could underclock my 4000MHz 2x8GB kit and run it in Dual Channel config with the R5E10 for a short period of time if I really had to, right? I mean it would work, right?

I also have a Trident Z 3466MHz 2x4GB kit so in a pinch think I would be ok, still hoping GSkill will offer those white inserts as a separate purchase, although I've said time and again, the modules look really good without any plastic insert whatsoever, a bit more industrial maybe, but I like the Trident Zs in all their naked glory. tongue.gif
