That sound stuttering/robo voice happens to me too, and I use Firefox, which grows ram forever and I have to close processes. That said I do have like 20-100 tabs open, so probably my fault. Though I think flash or something in Firefox is using way too much memory when I am not even using the tabs, like it keeps loading stuff forever till crashes or slows down to a halt, but this was happening on my 4 core intel also, so I think it is more to do with ****ty browsers not cleaning up their memory, prefetching the wrong tabs that you are not even open, etc. Hope new version of Firefox fixes this stuff, and yes since browser are gpu acccelerated (though I have turned that off and no help), who knows what is really going on.

So I finally swallowed my pride and took out 2 of my sticks. I can do 3600Mhz at the XMP profile. thumb.gif



Interesting note though, if I try to tighten timings at all it breaks the speed and drops ram to 2800mhz. Dunno why that is... redface.gif

Overall though, my system seems to post and load windows a hair faster. Gonna see if my Cinebench score is any higher than before, if it's not then I may as well pop the other sticks in and run at 2666mhz or 3200mhz with tighter timings

UPDATE:

Yup. Getting 1750 with 16gb less ram. Nuts.

For some the 16gb is not just pride but actual functionality biggrin.gif

Any software that interacts with the SMBus and is not reported on the SIV 5.18 Menu->Help->Lock Handle panel is poorly engineered ("evil") as it fails to use the lock.

Any process the opens multiple handles to the same Mutex/Mutant is suboptimal and I advise you to ask it's author to address this. One such utility is the latest Corsair Link 4.6.0.86 and earlier. I also suspect CAM does this.

From SIV 5.19 if you navigate via the Menu->Windows->Processes panel you can check which locks a process has open.



Note that Mutant is the Kernel name for Mutex and that Global\ is \BaseNamedObjects\

SIV will only report the thread names for other processes that set them using SetThreadDescription() on W10 RC2 and later.

For those that have a Corsair AIO and use Corsair Link to control the fans, light, etc., Red-Ray did not mention it but you can use SIV64 to do all that and kick Corsair Link to the roadside. The advantages are that SIV64 is Mutex conforming as he said, not buggy, and less of a resource hog.

Now if red-ray would just add in an Aura and Fan Expert replacement, I would be all set smile.gif

Oh trust me it's that for me too. I just wanted to see what the difference in ram speed meant.

Which I also just learned leaving the CAS @ 16, I can tweak the other timings! thumb.gif

That's insane. How much voltage do you need on SOC and DRAM to run that? Your desktop screenshot above isn't legible, what base clock are you running?

It's breaking the speed because the board is failing training and booting in safe mode.

That makes a lot of sense. Looks like I'll stick to Pstates for my 4.0 OC and 2666mhz with 32gb for now rolleyes.gif...

I wish Asus/Realtek would also fix this lingering audio issue, sick and tired of going into audio manager and switching settings back and forth to get my headphones to work haha. But hey i guess one problem at a time.

A good video just dropped, with some nice tidbits and explanations about some of the key BIOS settings, and more importantly, what range to use them within. Watch this (start at 3:23):

This is gold for some of us!!
