I'm rather annoyed right now.

I went to change the CPU Bus only to find that I could not change it with D.O.C.P. enabled. The only reason it is enabled is so that my RAM works with this board. So much for 4Ghz. The only way I can get 4Ghz at the moment is to use AMD Fusion. So it looks like the only thing I can do is use a software app on a MoBo designed for Overclocking. Hell I coulda done that on an M4A785V-EVO board without having to OC to get my RAM to work smoothly. What a friggin rip...

I love my board but c'mon there has to be a better way than what's going on.

Just downloaded Catalyst 11.3 and the drivers through Steam, hopefully that helps. If not, well reformat and doing it the long way.

Wut is D.C.O.P.?

What RAM does that apply to so that I don't get it?

Keep us updated on those tests too. I'm still running 1304 bios and have been holding off till there's more results in. If I understand you right you're having an easier time with the 1902? Or because of the additional ram?

I've been getting board as heck and might be time to up the OC again!
same bios 1304 havent flashed it since it came out only changed ram

D.O.C.P. is the OC feature that is in the BIOS.

The RAM is 8GB(2x4) of GSkill Sniper 1600 series. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the RAM. Unfortunately ASUS needs to pull their craniums out of their sphincters and update the BIOS so that these sticks identify without having to use the D.O.C.P. feature which is why I cannot OC my CPU in the BIOS. I'm stuck with 3.8Ghz because I cannot OC my CPU without dropping my RAM back to 1333. Actually the RAM is quite good that's what's so damned annoying.

Please add you rig sig (via user control panel) so we all know what you're system is running, it just makes it so much easier.

It's D.O.C.P. Dram Over Clock Profile. There's a brief description on page 3-10 of the Formula manual. tweeky has the most experience with it I believe.

I feel some of you guys pain with Ram, but myself I tend to use caution and took the advice from the memory guide link on the OP for my selection and stayed with what's currently on the QVL (which is also listed there). Now I do realize the pickins are slim for the high freq ram. I do see the G.Skill tridents http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231412 are listed on the OP as workable for the Formula. There is also a select few that know much more than I on this topic, maybe they will also give there input here.

Also bare in mind what CPU (C3 vs EO IMC quality) your running as it will play a big part on your out come as far as freq for Ram and NB. I'd hate to see anyone be disappointed by not knowing or researching these things a bit before making a purchase.

Thank you bo40, just trying to keep up to date with you lol.

My Dominators weren't on the QVL and they worked just fine. Also same with the Ripjaws I used on it. This RAM is just too new I think. Shouldn't matter other than the fact that they're supposed to be low voltage RAM. Don't know that I buy that since they report 1.5v which is exactly what the Dominators were.
