Thx for the info BlackOmega, I backed down to 3.8 on the CPU and just left everything else auto. I got ahold of prime95 and started running blend, everything was running good for a while (20-25 mins or so) then when the cpu got up to about 50C it BSOD. From what i hear that is still a pretty safe temp to run at so I dont believe that its overheating, the max safe temp for the cpu is about 63c from what i read.

Here is a SS of what I'm running at right now. I would think that 3.8 would run just fine on water so I probably just need to make some adjustments to get this stable. Any recommendations are appreciated.

Having looked up on the G.Skill, I not chosing them, Some folks have issues when more than 4gig. And I will most likely be going to 8gig at some point, can't see me running 4 for long, got so used to 8 now.

You should be able to run it pretty easily at CAS 7 @ 1600MHz possibly CAS 6. And it's low profile so mounting coolers and such won't pose much of an issue. And they're £12.00 cheaper.

That's the RAM I'd go with.
Yep, I been on Corsair site and some peeps are having problems running at 1600, stable at least but does 1300. The Geil are cheaper and from i've read seem to do the rated speeds. I think I will go for the Geil, Corsair is tempting as chances are they will be ok also..

You should be able to tighten up those 1333Mhz tmings to more like CL6. Might give you a little better bandwith at the low cost of minimal voltages if any at all...

I have tried changing my timings on the RAM a couple different times and I don't know if i am doing it all wrong but it seems like every time i change it I can not get a successful boot. I only change the CL tRCD tRP and tRAS, i have tried 7-7-7-21 for example. What should I be running for CL6?

Thx for all the help.

WEll, you're gonna have to bump up you Ram voltage some. Maybe by .05-.10v.

tRAS= CL+tRCD+tRP. So if you set those three to 6 that would total 18 for tRAS. But one could get more stability from setting the tRAS to 22-24.

You also want to set your tRC. tRC= CL+tRAS. but one could possibly gain more stability from setting this to a slightly higher value. Like +2. but if you can lower it below the calculated value (tRAS+CL) then one could gain a bit more bandwidth IF it's a stable setting... That may be acheived by adding volts. Or increaing the CPU DDR-PHY Voltage a bit.

It all takes time to dial in...

IT seems as though your voltage is a tad low for the speed (on average). Typically (but not always the case), you will need more than 1.424v to get to 3800. Bump it up to 1.435v and see if it stabilizes. If you get a few hours of stability and then it decides to crash bump it up another .005v for a total of 1.44v. And of course be sure to keep an eye on temps.

Good luck with those sticks. They do look pretty nice.

Correct. 1.424v is right at the edge of stability. I passed OCCT stress test twice and failed twice at that voltage. In the real world 1.424v would be enough.

idk why a lot of ppl trashtalk the gskill sticks, im running the ripjaw 7-8-7-24s completely stable @ 1600mhz the only thing that could cause an issue is an outdated bios, and whoever runs that old of a bios shouldn't run this high end hardware anyways at least how i feel about it.

im talking in this case about gskill sticks as i used gskill sticks the last 1.5+ yrs and have yet to get a single non posting stick! not a single one of the so far 50 + gb i had was faulty

if someone has issues with their ram, call them up they are extremely helpful and fast with service as well...

Thanks for this post.

Edit: sorry for first two, I thought it was going to continue sign up.

Well guys I got the bug.(well rekindled it) I was sitting here and decided my ram and FSB/HTT were to slow. as of right now I have found I can max FSB/HTT of ~ 260 and am currently working on my ram.(first time OC'ing RAM) I am @ 1680 9-9-9-21 1T with 1.85 and 1.35 CPU-DDR-PLL.
Thanks mastiffman!
I think I am high with the voltages but I am working my way up in speed so I set it high so that I can just use the OC dial.
