Makes sense considering higher ram clocks are uping the infinity fabric speed. This also confirms what I found in my testing with ram at 3200 and pushing the cpu; higher ram speeds may also require higher vcore regardless of cpu clocks to stabilize.

What does that look like? I love the case so far I mean I don't have the sides on yet waiting till I plug the other drives in.

Edit: Oh yeah!!!

I have purple carbon fiber in the back and I painted the plate purple. The vertical GPU is using the Cooler Master GPU bracket. Pay no attention to the GTX 960, I was just testing the machine until the FTW3 is sent out.

I forgot to mention that I got the custom shroud from Savant PC online. I told him I wanted the Fractal Design C bend on the shroud and he matched it pretty well for me.

i am just soooo blown away by this board!!

Coming from a Crosshair VI->MSI Carbon->ASRock Fatality Gaming Pro-> Gigabyte X370 K7.
Flashed latest bios and flipped a switch and BAM! my 2x16GB (Dual Rank)3200 MHz G.Skill were working at CAS14. Flawlessly. Mind blown.
The boot into windows in 10-15 seconds!!! compared to a minute or so on all the other boards.
Just happy to have my RAM running at specs.

Found a major bug though. Running Win10 and Redstone2 all fresh installed.
Installed all gigabyte utilities through the app and when restarted the PC it went straight into BIOS saying something like ...image not found, access denied.
Was able to continue to boot to windows manually by selecting the boot media. However RAM settings were lost and even setting them back to XMP profile would NOT work.
Seeing some F9 loop.
Recovery was only to flash back to F2 BIOS then back to F3. Just reflashing F3 did not help.

Going to start cpu overclocking tonight.thumb.gif
Did you use XMP, also what memory did you use?
post #557 of 1612
This memory thing is seriously weird.

I've managed to have my 3200/CL14 G.Skill Flare X to run 2933Mhz/ at 12-12-12-28 timings with 1.38v. But 3200Mhz/CL14, 16, 18 or even 20 at 1.4v ? No way José.

edit: 1.39v

You cant explain that. rolleyes.gif

Just sharing.

Micron just needs TRCD to be dialed in properly.

Tested 3 variants of same chips. But one of them cannot do 3200.

Hello,

 

How is the board even able to boot with 2133MHz sticks running at 3200MHz?

 

Can you please show the full RAM timings you've used for such a setup?

It goes down to how the RAM is programmed I guess, and to ICs being capable or not.

I have at least 3 variants of same Micron ICs on different PCB revisions. They all have different headrooms and timings need to be tailored for each of them.

We only have access to a handful of memory timings at the moment. The exact timings were shown as they are on CPU-Z.

I'm coming from the GA-B350M-D3H which actually could overclock quite well 4.0ghz @ 1.41 and the Flare X 8GBx2 3200 kit ran XMP just fine at 3200, the only problem with the board was that under stress the VRM temp was getting out of control 120+ in prime95 small fft which caused it to eventually overheat and fail. Games and most encoding jobs were all stable.
But I really wanted 100% stability @4ghz under any circumstances, and want to shoot for 4.1 if possible.

I decided that I liked the gigabyte platform, but needed something with better VRMs and VRM cooling, so I grabbed this board (K7).

I've now been reading almost every page of this thread and frankly I'm worried I made the wrong choice.

  • Is there anybody running Flare X at 3200MHz successfully? Seems gimped to 2933 (semi-unstable at that)
  • What are your guys VRM temps?
  • I've seen whisperings of possible p-state overclocking being added to this board.. anybody heard anything concrete?
