Hi Guys

I need a bit of help please. I have Bought G.Skill 3200 RGB F4-3200C14-8GTZR 2x 8Gb Sticks, Its currently running at 2133 but I would like to run this at 3200. Please see the picture below.



Thanks

Press load XMP settings (select the profile you have available)
Frequency should be 3200 if not select it just underneath, or maybe there is another problem.
Look at my picture, but no need to set the cpu.
The taichi xmp profile should set voltage and timings by itself.


BTW did you put your ram in the correct slots? in your picture it says DIMM3 DIMM4 they should be in like this 2 and 4 being the ram biggrin.gif

1 (2) 3 (4)

Its in a2 and b2 slots. Is this incorrect? I have dual channel G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16GB 2 X 8GB Dual Channel Ram. This ram

I have since changed it to A1 and B1 before its was on A2 and B2 both of these run at dual channel speed.

I have changed the XMP settings in BIOS and selected 3200. I am not sure if its working?

I hear with this motherboard, if you preform some master taichi moves prior to boot, you can enter the super-uefi menu.

I think you have the sticks backwards

Yes it's running 3200 = 1600 mhz, but i have them in slot 2 and 4 i see one of yours is in slot 1 in the cpu-z screenshot
If you go to the memory tab of cpu-z it says DRAM frequency, it should say around 1600 if it's running 3200.

Thanks. Yeah it looks like its running at 3200 (1600 mhz). I am also looking to overclock the CPU, I have currently 3 fans and Noctua 14s running temps are around 28c idel and under load around 45c.

I need to overclock 1700 to around 3.8/3.9/4.0 but I am not sure on Voltage. Shall I overclock to 4.0 at 1.4 volt to see if it overclocks.

Whats the best way to overclocking? to start with low voltages and slowly increase? I think I have enough air cooling to hit stable 4ghz.

I do it in 2 ways:

The quick and dirty way: when you have an idea from reading forums what voltage to put for the frequency you want and then do the fine tuning from there. Like you said, 4.0 at 1.4 volts, and if it doesn't boot go up in voltage and do the usual thing you do to test for stability.
This is the way I do my overclocks when going for bench runs but I would not recommend if you have the time to do it the proper way.

The "proper way": pick a starting voltage of let's say 1.35 and go up in clocks from there until the system is not stable and then increase the voltages you want to tweak, then once you get to the frequency you are happy with, start fine tuning there. Also try to overclock one thing at a time, don't go with overclocked RAM and even GPU just to keep variables to a minimum. You may find that at your maximum CPU OC the memory won't go to the frequency it used to or vice versa then you have to back off and fine tune some more.

Well the chip gets very hot under load, but a safe place to start would be 3.8 i think, mine does that at nice temps. After you go over that the processor gets hungry for power = hotter.
Mine did 3.9 with the stock cooler, and now 4.0 with Corsair H115i (aio watercooler).
I suggest you start with 3800 mhz and 1.25 V and then you can play around from there, if it's unstable you need to up the voltage a little the max recommended by amd was 1.35 mine is set to 1.4. Beware of the temps under load! it goes from 0-60 in seconds biggrin.gif
I suggest you have cpuid HWMonitor running to keep an eye on temps when doing load testing, and prepare to spend alot of time waiting for reboot and when it crashes, or you push it too hard it might reboot and just do nothing, the display on the motherboard can show 00, if it does use power button and switch it off and on again. It's normal after you set the settings in the bios, if you set the clocks too high and or voltages too low that the system will not boot and it reboots almost instantly, it will boot 4 times i think, just let it and when it comes back go to bios again. Good luck thumb.gif
