Youll just end up running it in 2t instead of 1t.

Stuck on 2666 unless I change the bclk. I am running an nvme and sli. I don't think I have much room in adjustment there do i?

The m.2 shouldnt be an issue at all (my 960 Evo went up to around 140 on the BCLK). You may need to drop the PCIe down to gen 1 for your vid cards though (think I started seeing artifacts around 109 with gen 3 last night). 2t may provide some headroom in the ram department without making any other changes though so certainly worth a try.

After some testing, here's some feedback on the new BIOS. All versions perform the same for me even though I have a dual-rank 32GB kit, so I'm on 0081.

My F4-3200C15D-32GTZKW is finally running at 3200MHz using 18-16-16-16-36 biggrin.gif
The funny bit is that contrary to 1002, which ran at 2933 without any issues, on the new versions I was unable to use anything higher than 2666 without tweaking ProcODT (thanks @femfemti for the tip!). Particularly, 68.8 for 2933, and 80 for 3200. Can't post with a CL lower than 18 though. Tried upping all of the usual voltages, tweaking ProcODT further, to no avail.
Despite having dual-rank dimms, I've disabled BankGroup Swap without any problems. Latency seems a tiny bit better according to Aida, but within margin of error.

Tried upping BLCK as well. Started with 105, 104 and then 103, which wouldn't even post. 102.8 posted so I temporarily settled for 102.4, but had overall system instability (blue screens mostly) so dialed back to default. Didn't try tweaking any of the voltages for 102.4, though.

Having said that, overclock stability seems largely the same as with 1002 (ie. good), so I'm still running the same P state overclock at 4GHz.

In sum, very happy with the latest version thumb.gif

EDIT: Almost forgot, new Cinebench score at 4GHz / 3200MHz https://cl.ly/1S0H3j1l3x08/Image%202017-04-08%20at%2012.03.43%20AM.png thumbsupsmiley.png

Try adjusting ProcODT to 68.8 or 80. Did wonders for me (all the way from 2666 to 3200). Note that whenever a post fails, ProcODT resets to auto, so you need to set it again.

What voltages and other settings would suggest tweaking when upping BCLK?

The 960 EVO finally arrived and everything was ready to go to fire the new rig up (I hoped). Booted into UFEI, Looked through initial stuff, and sure enough, the M.2 was there. Rather than change anything, I updated the bios to 0082, without problems. Rebooted again after sticking in the Windows 10 USB, and the install went very quickly. Did the the Windows update thing, installed Samsung NVMe driver, Nvidia driver, sound card driver, Corsair CUE, Asus Aura, etc..

I am pretty amazed how it all has gone so far. No hiccups at all, even the pretty motherboard, G.Skill RGB, and Phanteks case lights synched with Aura. What has surprised me more than anything is my boot and into Windows time. It is very quick, which based on some posts and reviews I have read was not what I expected.

Of course all this is running at default, so I guess I'll have to start messing this quick rig up pronto with some overclocking.

Anyway, a new rig running new CPU and Motherboard tech, and a test bios - It must be my lucky day.

Yeah I have a 960 evo as well and I can't sacrifice pcie performance for ram speed lol.

Wohooo just installed 082 Bios, now I can finally get 3200 on my 4 ram sticks (F4-3600C16Q-32GTZR)

I had to relax the timings to 18-16-16-36. but this is definitely a sign of good things to come! thumb.gif

Depends on what you're trying to do. You wont have to do anything for the m.2 and the video cards should be fine with either setting without taking a performance hit but you'll have to test that part out in game.
