BTW, did you find your memory OC to be more stable with your VCCIO at 1.050 and VCCSA at 0.900? I have both of mine at 1.0v and can't get to 4000mhz memory without having loose timings. Kind of tired of messing with it but lowering my VCCSA is something I didn't try yet.
Thanks. Yes, mesh is next (last) on the list). I'm only using 360 AIO and I'm not sure the extra heat is worth it right now.
Regarding the memory OC, yes, I found that IO & SA at those voltages helped tremendously. I've been trying to get my kit to run @ 4k for a couple weeks with no success. I reached out to a couple members with the same kit and they pointed me to increasing SA to .9 to .95 as a starting point. Before that I was trying to run at around .8 (SA) and .1000 (IO) but was unsuccessful at 4k. I was also trying hard to match some other members timings here with 16-17-16-38(ish) however, I beat my head against a wall and today I just tried straight 17's which yielded great results for me. I know its not "the best" and I'm sure there is room for improvement but I spent more time down the rabbit hole than I expected and am going to enjoy where I'm at for a bit.
Something to consider with IO and SA is that they are fickle beasts. Every IMC is different and there is a bell curve; too much can be bad and too little can be just as bad. As the more senior members here have said (a million times I'm sure) memory OC'ing takes a lot of trial & error as well as patience!
EDIT: I guess I screwed up... I only used 10 instances of HCI memtest instead of the 20 needed for correct validation. I'll have to re-run the test tomorrow and see if I'm still in the clear. ugh!Edited by GXTCHA - 11/22/17 at 7:15pm
