Sort of hidden, default screen shows CHA. In the right column there is a pull down menu where you can select CHB or CHC. The RTL will change along with the channel. Default, it shows the RTL value partially greyed out if the one shown is not the same on all three channels (which it really should never be).

Too bad CPU-Tweaker won't allow timing changes to be made in Windows. Apparently it does with EVGA, Gigabyte and some other mainboards, but Asus has locked the memory parameters in BIOS.

CPU Voltage1.30
IOH PCIE Voltage1.5
ICH PCIE Voltage1.5

Got BSOD during first run of IBT, MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION

I bumped CPU Voltage to 1.3125 and ran IBT again.

Again, BSOD during first run of IBT, this time 0x3b SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION

I bumped QPI/DRAM Core Voltage to 1.25, back to IBT.

This time it passed 10 iterations of IBT w/high temps of 76 74 74 72:



Currently running Prime95 and going to bed.



EDIT:

DRAM Timing Control
1st Info
CAS# LatencyAutp
RAS# to CAS# DelayAuto
RAS# PRE TimeAuto
RAS# ACT TimeAuto


So, other than setting DRAM Freq to DDR3-1603, UCLK to 3208, and DRAM Bus Voltage to 1.66, all RAM settings are at auto.
You're settings are the same as mine then on qpi and vcore. My ich and the other one are both 1.20's.

Try passing IBT on maximum. I can't get it done.

I can pass it on Very High though.

IBT won't let me select Maximum. When I try it says I don't have enough memory.


EDIT: I'm at about 5 hrs of Prime and still running. Small FFTs.

It was doing the same thing on mine, what it does is select all your available memory, so if it changes in that instant it selects it and the time you push go, it says you don't have enough.

Gotta be quick.

I just cold booted this morning to another BSOD before it loaded up Windows. Got to the "Starting Windows" screen, tried to load and BSOD.

Upping QPI to see if that helps.

Hey guys

I've been playing around this weekend and found a new feature on this board that some of you may know about. Some of you may hate it, some of you may love it, and it'll be sure to spark some controversy.

One of the best features that I thought exclusive to DFI boards before I figured it out on this board was the ability to use a special add function to the vid which essentially allowed you to scale the voltage with the multiplier in conjunction with C1E and EIST. Well this board has it too, in the voltage offset function.

People have heard the term vdroop or vdrop before. Essentially it refers to the drop in voltage when a heavy load is applied to the processor. This is actually the way INTEL designs the processors to run to prevent voltage spiking.

Some boards (and people) think that this droop is a bad thing, and thus we see options like vdroop control, or on asus boards, loadline calibration. Loadline calibration, while it may seem like a good thing in that your voltages basically stay rock solid at load and idle, actually hurts your processor more than it helps it long term.

Anyways, enough about my opinions. You can google this stuff and read all about it if you want. But I'm here to say it works, and it works well, and it allows you to let your processor idle at about 0.25v less than at load

Idle:



Load:



So basically, here's the skinny. You gotta set cpu voltage control to offset, speedstep to enabled, and loadline calibration must be disabled. You then must adjust the available offset voltage to whatever you need it to be...my offset for the above screenshots was around .125.

Couple of things to note. First, when you change multipliers the offset voltage will "offset" to a different starting voltage. In other words, the "auto" voltage that the board reads for the 20 multi will be different than for the 19 or 21x multi, so if you set an offset voltage of 0.1 for the 21 x multi and then change to the 20x multi, you will need to change your offset voltage if you want the same voltage. Also, you will need to load your processor accordingly to get your true load voltage. In my testing, anything other than Linx with at LEAST 5000MB of memory selected did not load the processor completely, and by completely, I mean drawing the most current thru the processor that causes the voltage to the processor to droop ALL THE WAY.

I recommend everest as a good monitoring tool but cpu-z will work fine. You will notice that in Turbo-v the voltage is labeled as 1.35, and in everest, my load voltage is 1.272. That's almost 0.08v of droop, which is a lot. But since the processor drops voltage at idle, you can see that the idle voltage is only 1.048v .

Anyways, if anyone has any questions about this be sure to ask. I've been playing with it for the last couple of days and frankly, I like it. My idle temps are about 3-4C lower and my load temps and voltages are exactly the same as before.

I'm not sure if you saw my most recent settings update for 4.20 w/ HT On. Double check these below with yours. I believe my memory settings were very close to yours also. It was able to pass IBT 2.4 / Very High / 20 passes with no problem. If it fails, try bumping vcore up 1 notch, should do the trick.

What did it do at 8-8-8-24?

Tried upping QPI to see if that would stop my cold boot BSOD's, upping QPI made me unstable in IBT.

This is really weird. It's like my rig likes specific levels and NOTHING but those.

Yeah. hmm. Well, I can switch it over to 8-8-8-24-2N and see what happens. Don't think I tried that one yet.

I'm pretty sure that's what you're dominator runs at. Mine does. It's rated for that I believe.

If you've got dominator GT memory you should be able to run 7-8-7 if not 7-7-7 at 1600mhz. If you only need 1.2375 QPI for the settings you have now I'd bet my next paycheck you could stabilize your system at tighter timings. Regardless if you are using 12GB or not.
