Also xmp mode 1? i think there is only one option for xmp that i have? unless you are just telling me to turn on xmp?
I have one xmp profile on my ram, but there are two options in bios for some reason.

That $160 in savings sounds strange though - it's more akin to what running a decent consumer desktop 24/7 at full throttle would cost yearly. I suggest taking a hefty load of salt with that number :-)

All in all for simple home use, be it entertainment or work, the electricity bills shouldn't be a real issue, more a curiosity. Still, it never hurts to be efficient in my opinion.

ah okay, yea efficient is always nice, but for now ill just keep it how it is. Just gotta focus on this weird RAM issue now OR i may just say F*** it lol and keep it 2133Mhz but ill do more research first

Huh, worth a read. May need more ram voltage. See below and try it out

http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-2831484/skill-tridentz-ddr4-3200-xmp.html

so i looked into it, and tried several different configs

several different DRAM volatages including auto, and same goes for VSSA VSSIO voltages.

I noticed with xmp it would put dram to 1.35v as it should for the profile. but computer wont boot, but if i put voltage on auto it bumps it up to 1.478v and it boots. but usb devices are not stable still.

i tried
3200Mhz 16-16-16-36 and auto did 17-18-18-36 (semmed slightly better on autoeither way usb devices were not working right)
3000Mhz tried 15-15-15-36, 16-16-16-36 and auto same result as before
2800Mhz tried same as above, seemed more stable but still not usb stable.

All these were passing aida64 memory stress tests

so i decided to go with that post you linked me, he says
Quote:
It may come in again when I buy my second 980ti next month; I read that 2133 would take around 5% of your overall performance and bottleneck your GPUs, you should get around 2400 at least.

so i used 2400Mhz with auto everything(it put 1.328 dram voltage) and usb devices were stable and everything was good. so i figured if the guy was worried about bottleneck at 2133 then if i goto 2400Mhz for my 960 4gb atm, it should be good enough i guess?

im guessing i would have to try out several different timing with different frequencies to get a stable 2800-3200Mhz on my mobo.headscratch.gif




Also ran all aid64 benchmarks and scored high on all of them.

I have that set of ram and I have tried up to 1.5v.

I can get a higher OC at 1.5v to my ram but

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I successfully raised my ram speed by raising BCLK. I still can't get it to the rated 3200mhz but I went from 2200mhz to 2666mhz by changing the BCLK , lowering multiplier while maintaining the same overclock frequency. RAM voltage is at 1.45v too. I believe the CPU overclock limits your FSB thus limiting your ram frequency unless you raise the general bus speed through the BCLK.

That is odd that you can't just click xmp 3200 and have it work. Can a chipset be why? Or at least the teired performance of it?

RAM is tricky. Unless the motherboard manufacturer very specifically states the exact sticks you are using as compatible, do not expect things to work out of the box. :-)

I had some hurdles myself with RAM when installing my current system (see here for long story http://forum.giga-byte.co.uk/index.php?topic=18143.msg104426 ) - basicly the motherboard was overclocking the RAM automatically with default settings. Things were mostly resolved with a bios update (although the original behavior still confuses me)

Generally speaking performance gains from tweaking RAM range from negligible to minimal. But of course, if one wants the highest numbers, one needs to take pains... wink.gif
