ROG Crosshair VI overclocking thread - Page 1312

post #13111 of 17850
I really like Aida64 to do a quick easy latency test for mem, but the 30 day evaluation is over and even after uninstall and remove from registry it still asks to buy it.
Well I am not going to pay $37 for a latency test I do three times a year. Is there an older Aida that is free and will do this someone can link me to or another program
that will give ram latency correctly. Performance Test always gives me a fake 55 number no matter what my ram is set at. And I can't find a simple latency in Sandra.
I was getting around 76-79ns latency playing with ram timings and Aida, and now I can't continue testing. Need some old or free Aida, not trialware. Thanks

Going into the BIOS and changing the speed from 3200>2933>3200 and hitting save and reset tells me i changed nothing but it will reboot and be at 3200mhz in windows. I''m really starting to think its an actual "cold" bug.

Did you flash the 0003 EC update? If not, quit running around in circles and complaining. I've not had a cold boot loop since the update. It's not 100% problem free, but it has ALWAYS cold booted properly.

Haha. Hugh you know its not a cold boot problem but an actual TEMPERATURE problem, ie if its colder then 20°C in the case it will throw an f9 then boot loop, @RaptormanUSMC has the same exact issue.

I honestly doubt that reflashing the ec would fix that, i think that's more a flash for people who can't hit 3200. Ive cold booted 3x today with temps at 20°C and its been fine (and that was with the system off for a couple hours), this morning with a case temp of 18°C, instant f9 and boot loop.

Try me. A 90MHz BCLK on boot will put RAM down to 2880 MHz. We've already established that you CAN boot at 2993. Which number is lower? Once the computer has booted, the BIOS will reassign the BCLK to 100MHz and you're back at 3200.

Can you please tell me what the 0003 EC update is? I'm a bit lost trying to follow this thread and current updates. Thanks

True, i could give it a try but there is a downside to it, pretty sure Elmor said some GPUs may not like that low of a refclock at boot up and youd get stuck with a black screen or something. I still need to do more testing and see if its actually a temperature thing and i may just may give it a try.

It will drop the speed down you're right bbut it may get past POST and then give me errors in windows or something you know what i mean? I may give it a shot on my other ch6.

I am in that cant hit 3200 club and want to try this EC flash, though I am not sure where it is or actually what that is lol.. Please help ;-)

AGESA 1.0.0.5 is due out this month, which will hopefully fix the issue that some of us have getting to 3200. I don't see much of a reason to fight with getting memory speeds up on current BIOS versions if a new BIOS in the next two weeks will fix the problem and make it easy.

It's made more for people who are having cold boot issues i believe but not entirely sure. It pretty much reflashes your EC with a different version.
