Any suggestions? CPU DDR-PHY isn't working...
Mastiffman, I have the AMD Black Edition OCZ DDR3, CL8. I set it up, got 1600Mhz 8-8-8-20-28-1t @ 1.68v running just fine. I couldn't, for the life of me, get it past 1640Mhz, even setting 8-8-8-27-40-1t @ 1.7v.
So, I said the heck with it, I'm just going to see how fast I can get it @ any timings. I set timings to auto, and started clocking the speed. Long story short is I ended up with 1816Mhz @ 9-11-11-24-40-1t, 1.7v.
So, I figured it could do better timings and just started lowering them slowly, and stress testing each adjustment.
I'm running 1800Mhz 8-9-8-24-32-1t @ 1.71v w/CPU DDR PHY @ 1.35v, and it's running great. For the record, I found the CPU DDR PHY volts to be most useful when using high speeds, and less effective @ lower speeds. I had IntelBurn stable speed, but it felt 'weak', and probably would not have passed Blend, adding in CPU DDR PHY volts, bettered the Everest memory scores, and it seemed 'stronger'. I also think it's especially useful with high CPU clocks and high RAM speeds together.
So, try getting the speed you want @ auto timings, and then slowly lowering them, see what you can get. I bet you could get around 1800Mhz @ 6-7-6-18-27-1t out of those sticks.

I have 2 74gb raptors btw.
thanks for your help.
Prior to install, be sure to set up the RAID in the bios, and RAID utility. During install (Windows) have a usb flash drive with the SB/RAID driver on it. Get it from MSI's website, for this board, the most recent.
When you are loading Windows, it will need the driver to be able to recognize the stripe, and allow you to install on it. Use a USB stick, not the CD, when you are swapping CD's to add the driver it sometimes confuses Windows, and it can cause a problem trying to get the install completed.
Add the driver in from the USB stick, and continue with the Windows install.
Do you need more details?
Merry Christmas everyone!!!!!!
