ROUND TRIP ON LATENCY CHB =48
ROUND TRIP ON LATENCY CHC =48
3RD INFORMATION = 6-6-14-9-9-9-7-6-4-7-7-4
this is all in the dram timing control
also all these settings have Auto out beside them
and the memory configuration protect is disabled.


also i tried 21x200 dram = 1604 MHz, would not boot back up, had to restart cutting power off and said overclocking failed!..

anything over 1603MHZ wont boot up ...

Set your timings manually according to your RAM specs. Since your RAM (according to your sig) is rated at CAS 9 @ 1600mhz, you're running it at CAS 7 which is probably why it won't boot. change the first 3 (CAS# latency, RAS# to CAS# delay, RAS# pre time) to 9-9-9 and give that a try.

With 12GB, you'll get a more stable result with 9-11-9-32-1T. At 1.65v, you should be able to reach 2000MHz with that timing. If you are at 23x192, then you should set your ram to 1920MHz in bios at the timings above.

You need to sort some things out here, man. First, clock your CPU down to 19x 192, leave your voltages where they're at if you are not running hot. Next, dial your RAM as above. Then, boot your PC to MemTest86+ and let it run overnight. If there are no errors, then leave your RAM timing alone for now, it is stable! Once you know your ram is stable, you can pretty much forget about it and focus on your volts for CPU and QPI. I have run two different R3F boards with two different CPUs (bloomfields in my case), and found 4.4 took uncomfortable amounts of voltage, even under water. At 4.5, I had a board fail and splatter solder all over my case, taking the CPU with it. Be warned. My setup takes something on the order of 1.45-1.51v in bios (1.45 measured at the terminals with a Fluke meter under load) to remain stable through OCCT/LinPack. I can keep my settings under 1.4v in bios to run a cool, stable 4.2GHz. When I dropped my cash on this board and CPU, I really wanted a 4.4GHz 24/7 setting, but it was just not possible. Twice. I can reach the times for benchmarking, but that's it- my $600USD mishap has me feeling conservative. I was a little bummed about not beating my Yorkfield's fast-and-stable 24/7 clock, but the i7 is quite a bit more powerful overall, so I've settled for now. Get your ram stable, then work the clocks and volts. Probably just the volts.

ok bro i wanna do what u say..

ok this

tell me exactly what i should do for 4.2 stable bro..

b0ot

so run 23x192 and set my ram timingsd to what.. right now my dram frequency is 1371 MHz. and i turned on my memory configuration protection and changed timings from auto to 9-9-9-24.

what should i do for my settings
send me a template to try
core
CPU PLL
QPIDRAM
DRAM BUS VOLT
dram frequnecy
etc.. thanks buddy.

Reason I disabled turbo mode was that I've read turbo mode will boost a single core up to x22 in single threaded apps, which I don't want when I'm dialing in my OC.

Regarding your question about CPU turbo power limit, I believe disabling it means it let's your CPU exceed it's TDP when turbo mode kicks in. I'm not sure if thatsthe only case or if it also lets it exceed TDP through normal OC/overvolting. I leave it disabled but since I have turbo mode disabled anyway not sure if it's doing anything.

Hope that's been a help.

I'll give it a shot. RMA came in today.

pssst.....

ASUS Rampage III for 225.99 +8.95 Shipping (open box) here:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131666R

Still has warrenty support. If I had the money I would pick it up.

b0ot-

Sorry for the late reply. I don't know what kind of cooling you are running, so watch yourself. The rest of your specs are quite good, so give this a try:

cpu 4.197
dram 1825
ln2 disable
qpi llc - set jumper to enable
sync mode enable
ai overclock manual
oc from level up auto
cpu ratio 23x
c1e disable
hw prefetch enable
ac line prefetch enable
modern ordering
virtualization disable
cpu tm enable
execute disable bit enable
ht enable
active cores all
a20m disable
speedstep disable
c state disable
BCLK 182
PCIe 100
dram 1825
uclk auto
qpi link auto
mem config prot disable
ram should be 9-11-9-27-1t, all other settings auto
diff amplitude either auto or 700 or 800
skew auto
digi+ balanced
pwm auto
llc 50%
cpu volt ocp enable
cpu pwm auto
extreme ov disable
extreme oc auto
cpu volts 1.40000
pll volt default not auto
qpi 1.35
dram bus 1.6562
dram vref settings all to auto
IOH and ICH all set to default
cpu spread spectrum disable
pcie spread spectrum disable

Ok, Chris- I took the time to type this in, no cut and paste here. Please do me the favor of letting me know how it works out. I have spent a lot of time with this board, you can find a stable setting. Let me know what your temps are like with this setup, and I can help you from there. Also, switch to OCCT instead of Prime95 and watch your temps!

Ok...fried my eVGA X58 SLI board (putting in NB/SB water blocks...must have tightened them too much or something...no POST at all) so I just purchased the R3F and the Koolance board block. Read ALL the posts and to paraphrase (would be good to have a summation post):

Memory is finicky...don't use auto settings...use your mem settings to start.
SATA III is a problem w/Marvel controllers
Solid OC machine but performance drops above a 205 blck
Load both set of audio drivers but do XFI second
At least one board blew some capacitors/chips
Some SLI irregularities...mostly power-related (use slots 1 and 3 for X2)

Any other major considerations?
Anyone have experience w/Koolance waterblock on this board?

Well...not bad considering, and as are all things engineering...we build on the backs of previous achievements. I like the industrial design...since I have 2X 460's w/Koolance WB's it should get that nice metal look.

DOES THE MOBO GO THROUGH ALL THE Q LEDS BEFORE BEEPING/POSTING?

No beeps at all but the board shows good led's on standby, DIMM, and power...but fails to start the debug LED (the one that shows you the number associated w/action). My Rampage III showed up yesterday and sometime this evening I'll run a few more tests on the evga board...the ONLY thing I'm worried about at this point is if the i7 chip itself is fried...that's another $250...
