@faraz1729:
Just to let you know, I'm using Corsair 3x2GB CMX6GX3M3C1600C7 ram with timings of 7-8-7-24. Good luck and I hope that fixes it.

Has anyone here read this article? http://www.hardocp.com/article/2010/...x16_vs_x16x8/1
Yes I'm posting this in the correct thread.
I installed 2 of the Galaxy GTX470's in Sli as per the ASUS P6X58D-Premium manual. The temp. of the upper gpu immediately went to 80C. while the lower card was at the usual single card temp. of about 36C. This was at stock settings, everything monitored by GPU-Z.
I really didn't want to but I then ran Fallout 3 to see what it looked like in Sli. It sucked. It looked as if the image was constantly shifting between the 2 cards giving an almost stroboscopic effect to the images that almost immediately gave me a headache. I noted the FPS at 81. The same as as the single card solution. I then closed the game and noted the temps. as being 90C for the top card and 52C for the lower. I then shut down everything, waited a few minutes for everything to cool down and removed the 2nd card. Back to the game and everything was back to normal again.
I hooked everything up as per the ASUS manual, cards in the 1 & 2 PCI-E slots, gold fingers connected, configured the nVidia panel to Sli., set the BIOS PCI-E to auto, set the fans to run at 70% and this is what Sli is supposed to look like? At gpu melting temps.? If so then this certainly ain't for me!
Then I happened upon the article I mentioned above. It sounds like a perfect solution for the temp. problem, but what about the awful images I was getting? Have I missed something in setting up Sli.? I ran the newest card alone and it works just like the 1st card so it apparently has nothing wrong with it.
Watercooling isn't an option on these non-reference cards. No biggie there (except I'll Never buy non-reference cards again!) as I'm going to put these cards in the #1 16x slot and the #3 8x slot. I'm just waiting for the Corsair H70 to arrive later today to reconfigure these cards and also put my whole set-up in my new HAF-X case I was saving for a new build. I have a new MountainMods UFO case on the way for the new Rampage 3 build. CPU and Radeon HD5850 watercooled and a new i7 930 I found rather cheaply as an O.E.M.
Any suggestions for getting a decent image from my Sli. configuration on this Premium build (as in my sig.) would be thoroughly appreciated.
TIA

(back from my RAM RMA crypt...!) I'm wondering if, according to corsair, my CORSAIR XMS3 12GB needs up to 1.6v... xmisery's settings are set to 1.64v (DRAM bus voltage is the voltage supplying the RAM with volts, right?... total n00b question...) Anyway, I've got it set at auto right now--running the 3.8ghz OC settings with adjusted vcore. The big question for the gurus here is,

should I manually set my DRAM bus voltage to 1.6?

Again, I have it set to auto because setting it to 1.64 last time may have toasted one of the sticks in my kit.

Thanks, guys for any answer y'all may have.

i would set it to what it says on the corsair website/box!

OK you should set it too its rated voltage.

BUT considering that it looks like the difference in Corsair XMS3 CAS 9 and the CAS 7 is one is 1.6v and the other 1.65 makes me say hmmm. That and shouldn't Corsair sticks be able to take .04v worth of overclock anyway. I can see overclocking 6 sticks getting sketchy though.

it sounds like the 470 are not scaling properly, and it might be the high temp thats causing it? try it in the 1 and 3rd slot formation and see how that goes.

I'm booting up and it's showing 8GBs again, until I either restart it. It's doing the same thing I posted here:

http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...l#post10250991

Maybe the XMS3s aren't soo good in OC setups?... or having 6 sticks makes it tougher on the board? I'm confused!

I'll be updating the bios today to see if that'll solve this mystery. Thanks guys...

You most likely will need to manually set the timings AND voltages manually.

QPI/DRAM voltage AND RAM voltage may need to be upped a little.

You may also need to mess with the DRAM reference voltages.

FYI, I have a Super Talent DDR3-2000 6GB kit. When running my 920 @ 4.3Ghz (21x200), the QPI/DRAM voltage needs to be at least 1.625 and the RAM voltage is at 1.74 (stock voltage is 1.65)

The reference voltages are all set to .450. At the stock setting of .500 the system is completely unstable.

Also, I have noticed that when settings the RAM timings to AUTO and/or using the X.M.P profile my system will not even POST.

I have also noticed that there are one or two settings that NEVER read in the BIOS what you actually set them to in the BIOS.

Also, when using Auto settings for the RAM timings, the sub-timings jump around quite a bit. You can go into the BIOS, look at the sub timings. Go out, turn off the computer. Turn it back on, go back into the BIOS, and the sub-timings will be different.

Also, on the last setting in the first group, it always auto sets it to 0 if it is set to auto. The minimum manual setting is 4..... Again, my system will not even boot all the way into Windows with it set to auto.

I've already looked at the BIOS in AMIBCP, and it looks very similiar to the
p6x58d and -E BIOS.

The only thing I immediately noticed is that the overcurrent protection setting is in there.

Does anybody with the right equipment (BIOS chip flasher) want to test it out to see if a cross-flash will work?

I would try it myself, but I don't want to brick my board.

Between the new RAM not working and your earlier posts http://www.overclock.net/10259703-post2914.html I'm really thinking it is the DRAM slot itself that is the problem. Either something else on the board is causing it to bend, the slot in and of itself is warped or the contacts within are bad. IDK

You didn't happen to end up with any extra standoffs when you installed the board did you ?
