My memory modules arrived, popped them in and fired it up. No issues. trained up to 3200 MHz at stock timings, then tightened to 14 based timing. Again no issues. Did a shutdown, shut off power supply, and rebooted - hiccuped and was back to 2133. Bumped dram volts and dram boot volts to 1.4 from 1.375. Tried again, no issues.
This is the best timings I have had with this rig. The biggest change though is not having to go through torture to get back to a boot with the corrupted SPD issues I was having. Boot times decreased too. Very snappy now. My poor bios was going through boot hell trying to function before.
Needless to say I'm a happy camper.
This is going to make things so much easier to deal with. Now I need to try out the P-state application elmor wrote. Have to read back up too see what I need to do.
