post #6021 of 6368
The OC settings for the CPU speed work just fine. The fans get set to "turbo mode". I pretty much leave everything else on Auto since the reading are fairly good: CPU volts are steady at 1.26v. The voltage rail readings are pretty much within 0.10 of spec.

My memory is running at it's 1866 setting and the fans do spool up to their 100% rpm spec when I run Prime95.

Hard to tell whether or not the boot settings (Full screen display is disabled and the system is set to fast boot) since I don't see anything.

And as to the monitor: It does get a signal initially but it remains black and shortly thereafter it reports "No Signal" until the Windows load screen comes up. After that it's business as usual.

It has been giving my an error beep occasionally: 4 quick beeps. When I do hear that I press F1 and the system continues to the Windows Loading screen. From what I have gathered that beep code is saying my system timers are off?

I feel like a complete DUMB-ASS...... frown.gif

When I was asked what I have changed in the system I said the ONLY thing I have done was swap out my parts into a new Fractal Design R5 case.

Ummm,,,,, yah,,,,, not quite.

I also replaced a failing fan on my Hyper 212 Evo with a Noctua redux fan. More on that later,,,,,

I also decided to place my computer in a different spot which required getting a longer (so I could hide it) Displayport cable. 15ft in length.

Now in my (albeit weak) defense, I did not have a problem when I first fired up the system. However after a few days,,,,,, redface.gif

In a nutshell: In the process of trying to figure out my "problem" I moved the case to a more convenient location which, by the by, is closer to my monitor. After hooking it up (with the old displayport cable) I fired it up and,,,,,, WTH? Why am I seeing a boot up screen. And oh,,,, the 4 beep error code is related to the Noctua fan spinning to slow, causing an error code trip. And HUH?!?!?! I can get into the bios now?

So after de-snaking the new longer displayport cable back out and hooking it up to the monitor my system went right back to no boot up screen and no getting into the bios. Well it probably was going into the bios, I just couldn't see it,,,,,

DUH,,,,,,,

My apologies to rhkcommander959 and kckyle for trying to offer suggestions to my plight. redface.gif

While I still have to sort out the flaky USB2 problems, at least I can SEE WHAT I AM DOING,,,,,,

Hi,

So i have a P6x58D-E and a x5670 running at 4,15gh for 9 months and i'm really happy with it.
Now i'm wondering how i could upgrade my ram.

I have 12gb at the moment (3x4). How much more can this board take ? I'd like to go for 24gb or even 32gb (i use some music programms which benefits from high memory capacity).
So should i buy another 3 x 4 to make it 6 x 4 ? (that would impact my overclock wouldn't it ?)
Or should i sell my 3 x 4 and buy 3 x 8 ? or even 4 x 8 (because triple channel kit seems hard to find nowaday) ?
post #6026 of 6368
dual channel kits can be used in lieu of a ready-to-go triple channel kit.

get the pairs of 2x8, alternatively you can get a pair of dual channel and a single stick as long as they are rated the same.

I dont recall for sure if the desktop lga 1366 can support ecc and reg mem, but with xeons I believe you should be able to.

So then you have access to 16 up to 32gb modules biggrin.gif meaning up to 192gb of memory possible

Server memory (i believe I picked triple channel only too)

Triple channel kits
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&IsNodeId=1&N=100007611%20600006050%20600052011

Or get three pairs:

For best costs, it would probably be wise to get 3x (2x8) kits, average price starts around 150$ for a total of 48g:thumb:

Thanks for your reply.
I think 48gb is a bit overkill and the more ram slots you use, the more stress you put on the cpu right ?
I think 32gb would be perfect, what do you think of those (not using newegg cause of high shipping fee and import tax to my country).

If you plan to OC I would get a quad set as they are matched and you have 1 spare in case 1 blows up smile.gif

Yes but the amount of ram is limited by your OS with win 7 you need pro to use more than 16 I believe

For the best OC only use 3 sticks - for max ram 6 sticks

That presumes you have a x58 MB of course smile.gif

I thought about it this night and here are my conclusions :
- I either will grab another 3 x 4 kit (it's around 60€ and would make a total of 24gb) or won't upgrade. Because my board is 7 years old already, dunno if it will fail someday. And if it does i'll go with newer cpu architecture (skylake / cannonlake ...) which only support DDR4. So I don't think it's wise to invest in DDR3 today.

Skylake-E perhaps. Skylake is just a step backwards if you are having a high OC already
