$170 won't get you decent 1600 memory, but since you only want to run 3.5 you can probably go with this

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231230

Should allow you to run at 21 x 166 with 1333 memory...which is what you are looking for. And its got pretty decent timings. I've always had good luck with G.skill. I always recommend corsair or OCZ but they are usually a bit pricier.

I'd cross check them with the QVL list in the manual for the motherboard, but then again my memory isn't on the QVL list and it purrs like a kitten on this board.

Id rather go with http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-225-_-Product or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-222-_-Product

And PCCstudent, you are looking for triple channel right? Even though you've got amd setup in signature..

Well yeah if you only want 3 gigs

Yeah I want tripple for my i7 I bought. I will go as high in price as need be for decent RAM (no need to save a few bucks now and regret latter)

The first set is 3 x 1GB - the other one is 3 x 2GB.

I am happy with the XMS3 Corsair 3x2gb, agreed?

4.5ghz, never more than 60C on the chip. I've got a bad mount though, core 3 runs about 5-8 degrees cooler than the rest of the cores...plus I could use a better waterblock.

I seem to hit a bclk wall after 215...I also had to loosen the crap out of my timings: 1718MHz @ 7-8-7-21-2T from stock 6-7-6-18-1T



Edit - Also, for you watercoolers, that extra fan that comes with the motherboard is absolutely necessary. My vregs burned my hand when I touched them, the northbridge was also quite hot. I forgot to plug mine in, and I was wondering why my stability was spotty.

Now if I could find a fan for the nb and sb as well...

Impressive temps for that voltage, even under water. What waterblock you using?

EK has new waterblocks out for the ASUS X58 boards but you have to buy a nb/sb block and mosfet blocks so it turns into 3 blocks and 6 fittings. But you can also buy the ASUS HP block and it supposedly fits directly on the heatpipe assembly where the current blue nb heatisnk sits. That might be a cool idea and it only costs about $40.

Hi there, still looking at different motherboards for my up and coming i7 build. I came across this motherboard earlier. It is not that much more than the P6TD Deluxe that is currently my top pick.

The only thing that seems to bother me at the moment is that It looks like the 2 x16 PCI-E slots are at the top together thus blocking the two PCI slots for my sound card. Is this correct?

Otherwise looks like a good choice due to its future proofing qualities of Sata6 and USB3.0

I've re-worked my overclock settings using the power saving features as described by BlackDragon24. It works really, really well. I love seeing CPU-Z showing 4.2GHz with only 1.1x volts

I am finding that Prime95 and HyperPi need much less Vcore than LinX. To complete 20 runs of LinX with 25,000 problem size and 8 threads, I need at least 0.05v higher Vcore. I can complete HyperPI 32Mx8 and run P95 for quite while with Vcore as low as 1.3125v... I don't think you can claim stability without really hammering the IMC. It may be possible to replicate the stress level of LinX in P95 by increasing the FFT size in a custom test, but the standard blend, small and large FFT tests don't do it.

Has anyone found ICH voltage to improve stability ? I haven't noticed any difference but noticed xmisery was using up to 1.3v in some profiles. Any explanation on why the ICH11R would affect CPU/QPI/Uncore/Dram overclock ?

I did find an effect with IOH, at least on my system which has two 8800 Ultra cards in SLI. This was when attempting to run my Crucial DDR3-1600 at 7-7-7-20, a failed experiment which I never did get it stable. But even getting the computer to post recognizing all three channels required increasing IOH to 1.2-1.3v, with QPI/Dram at 1.35v and VDimm at 1.76v. With IOH < 1.2v only one or two channels would be recognized. I am now a believer that there is no harm from VDimm > 1.65, as long as the difference from QPI/Dram is less than 0.5v I have a 6GB set of Corsair C7D on the way which I think will help my overclocking, this Crucial memory isn't great.
