Also Vdimm is set to auto, which seems to be 2.5V. At least it is more stable than VDimm set to 2.6V
Oh, and everything is without ECC.
No amount of tweaking made the memory run stable in Prime95. Even 3-4-4-8 and relaxing sub timings didn't help.
Now I do what herm did in the beginning: Enabling ECC
Everything else untouched, the DIMMs survive the 768k test for 15 minutes without any errors. Now I'm trying 3-3-3-8. Everything with Vdimm set to auto (i think it's 2.5V, but I can't be sure). Maybe there is a chance to get this f*cking RAM past 230MHz
Isn't there a huge performance hit with ECC? Yeah you can OC to a higher Freq. because less errors, but what good is it if performance takes a hit? Or is it negligible? I'm RIGHT at the cusp of 6k read/write with 3-3-3-8 @ 1T at 2.6v. If I could squeeze out 6.5k like you, stable, I'd be ok with that. Considering some of the best scores i could get in old days with plain 2x 1gb setup is high 6k, low 7k. Avg. 6800-6900.
Currently at 5800+ to 6K, depending on its mood at the moment, and any background things you can barely control...
btw, my 16GB kit is not stable at 200Mhz at 2.5-3-3-8-1T, only 3-3-3-8. Maybe I'll try lowering to deafult vDimm so its only 2.5v. That sounds right. Why would there be a 2.6v option if default is 2.6v?Edited by SwishaMane - 8/4/16 at 8:35am
