I have the link to official QVL for the Extreme which works for the Formula too,
but I highly recommend my Flares. They are fast, they are rugged, and they overclock well.

8GB (4x 2GB) G.Skill 7-9-7-22-29 @ 2000 MHz @ 1.65~1.7125v (some users need a little more voltage) and a 3000 NB CPU-NB. I think I might try 3200, have you had any success with that IOSEFINI?
I can not run them 2000 6-9-6, thats too much for AMD
Max. is 1940 6-9-6
I was able to hit 3250 for CPU/NB,
I'm testing some A-DATA sticks @ 1900 7-7-7-21 right now,

Also, as I'm sure you well know, any defragmentation programs you might have should be disabled (I use 3rd party defrag programs because the Win 7 "close enough is good enough" way of defragging is unsatisfactory.) Win 7 automatically disables defrag on SSD's when it detects their presence. The Intel toolbox is very nice; it enables you to manually or schedule TRIM. I don't mean to sound like I'm talking down to you; please understand.

Gotta run now. Will check out the rest of your very detailed and extremely helpful post. Being quite the OCD guy, I have read all I can find on SSD setup and Win 7 (Ultimate) 64 bit optimization. I have my father to blame for my constant pursuit of perfection. Ugh!



OMG, it must really be nice to be so rich. Formatting, benchmarking, etc. SSD's till they crash will never become one of my pastimes.

Disclaimer: Are you using G1 or G2 SSD's. If you are still using Generation 1's, I would be glad to volunteer my time and effort to help you crash them.
G2 Vertex with Firmwares at 1.5 (firmware not even released to public??), I am not rich I assure you haha.

Yeah, I am not one for pride, but I am going to have to disagree with Intel. However, that being said if Intel was basing their data using a computer from 3 or 4 years ago (i.e. low end DDR2) they would be absolutely correct. All it it does is load a bunch of applications and their associated DLLs into system memory as opposed to "wait-to-launch" style of operation.

Sidenote:
This is why Windows 7 is more snapier loading things than WindowsXP, however you can b00t into WindowsXP, I think the record for enthusiasts (not a Cray ) is like 17 seconds. As time goes on and more stuff is installed on Windows 7, it takes longer and longer to get a usable desktop. Windows update and the .Net framework are biggest boot up screwer arounders I know. But they are necessary

Back on track:
We are now in the age of DDR3, and for me, high speed Dual Channel DDR3, but this even more true for TripChannel guys. I am also in the 8GB of DDR3 realm, which is a completely different trip. I confidently feel I no longer essentially need a pagefile (although I keep one small one on HDD.) I also have memory that has much faster access times then any SSD. Although they were pretty close in performance, the gap has increased immensely comparatively to DDR2 vs. older G2 SSDs.

Caching things in memory also cuts down on reading/writing on the SSDs, so that alone maybe one reason to leave it enabled.

Several Windows7 Optimization simply won't function without it. So you are trading a slower starting operating system for.... practically no performance benefits at all. Why not go back to Windows XP 64? (I know, there are no freaking drivers.)

Thats why I said arguably necessary, and thats just my opinion. I would say though, make your own decisions when it comes to disabling Windows7 primary features and see how you feel things run with it on and off. There are a few others, but that is the main one I disagree with.

Wiki: SuperFetch (its a little dated)

Also don't Raid0 SSD unless you have 4 (even really 6 identical ones.) The performance is slower than a SSD with Trim feature. You lose Trim when in Raid. It takes a good (5 for me) to beat the performance of a single Trim SSD. When I say beat, I don't mean marginally, its exponential at 4~5 drives and in the realm of 200% faster.

Nice, the 7,7,7,21 @ 1900Mhz will be faster than the 6,9,6 @ 1900Mhz you have going now.

Mine are supposed to be optimized for Intel, but they work fine. OCZ3P1600LV4GK. 7-7-7-24-27-1T/1600MHz/1.65v.

Thanks for the replys guys, I'll try all your fixes and see how it works, because of what i understand its that Intel optimized rams can work on Amd without problems, so i try to up the voltage to 1.8v on the sticks, also check grounding issues, etc, all that you guys posted before

I will post soon when i complete testing everything. Cya.

I have a weird problem. Everytime I turn on my PC in the morning, it will get a hard freeze within about 15 minutes at the most...sometime as fast as a couple of minutes. I even reinstalled Win 7 to see if I had a bad installation the first time...well that didn't solve the problem. The freezing happens at random times. My memory is fine, I have checked it numerous times with memtest, and I don't have any problems other than the morning "freeze". After it freezes in the morning I have no problems for the rest of the day. Any ideas?

Cause i would really like to fill this tower up with 15 fans, and still have room for a great CPU cooler.. Is this possible? Thanks..
I'm using just the stock fans right now. The case is suppose to allow upto 15 fans, so I suppose that would be possible. As to the NH-D14, I am hesitant to say this will fit. I'm using a NH-U12P, which just fits with about an 1" or so to spare top and left side of case. Also, the D14 has issues with encroaching on at least the innermost 2 banks of memory (at least on the Crosshair IV Extreme motherboard), so I'd pretty much shy away from that CPU cooler.

CPU & Memory are at stock clocks? If yes, raise your RAM Volt. 1 or 2 notches.
EDIT: If your RAM volt is AUTO set it manualy first

Yes CPU is stock and I have my RAM at the recommended (default) settings which are 1600Mhz, 8-8-8-24 @ 1.65V. So I should raise the mem volts to 1.67?
