You probably wouldn't see that big of a difference except for in benchmarks..

DDR3 ram standard speed is 1333. Anything above it isn't considered "normal" I guess you could say. That's why it takes an extra step in the bios (XMP) to force it to run at that speed. It's really not a big enough difference and the only real benefit to ram that's even 2000 or 2200 is just overclocking room.

Well aside from the disappointment of my g.skill ram not showing up which made me go out and buy a temp set of crapsair ram to get me through the weekend (returnable) I am all up and running...

Pretty much lost as to settings in bios... Got the ram running at the default 1600 cas9 @ 1.65v.
Disabled EIST & SpeedStep. There was one other option for C something, which I just figured is the same as C1E on my older board, disabled that...

Up and running at 3362MHz (160 x21) volts around 1.21 - 1.24 (havent disabled Vdroop)

Guess it auto overclocks?? where was that feature when I didnt know how to OC?

Anyway, going to run like this for as long as I can (1 - 2 days, maybe an hour )

Here is a SS.. Temps idle in around 28 - 31c... Its a nice 3-5c drop from my Q9550 @ stock.... Breaking down my block and cleaning the gunk out must have helped a bit...



Will post some bios setting I have questions about when I am read to get started... There are quite a few in there I am not real familiar with...

Well guys I officially throw in the towel on this one. As far as I am concerned I have a faulty motherboard. I won't RMA it because I really don't feel like tearing apart my PC/reattaching the heatsink, and I don't want to reformat again.

I reset CMOS (twice!) and gradually walked up to the 4.01ghz I had previously set. As soon as I set it to 21x170 it did a brief shut down (rather than a warm boot like usual) and then booted. After that is when the rebooting began. I got it up to 4.01ghz and it took FIVE tries before it finally booted. Like I said earlier, I ran a blend test at this 4.01ghz for 6.5 hours.

Here is my proof:

Try going past 170 up to 180 or 190.. I personnally dont see how your hitting 4 ghz with 21x170. but mine is at 21x191 for 4ghz try something along those lines. or maybe even 19x210.

i wouldn't give up as your only at 3.5ghz with 170..

Mine is still running really hot. with 1.325 vcore in bios with 21x189 my highest temp was 90 over 9 hours in prime95.. I really wish i knew why it was so hot as i have a decent cooler that i'm sure is properly seated with not a lot of TIM..

Any suggestions to try. I plan on watercooling after christmas but thats still a ways off.

You will see a nice difference from Air to H20, at least at load idle usually is what it is...

That A70 is a decent cooler, but its not a top of the line like a TRUE, Megahelm or anything like that. So your temps are high due to a mix of that, ambient and airflow. All factor into cooling....

Read up on applying TIM to a direct contact cooler too, its differnt then the traditional way....


Once I get around to pushing this thing I will give you a better idea of what cooling is like with H20. I have a mid range water setup. Single loop, 240 rad average pump..

I looked up applying the TIM for heat pipes the 2nd time i reseated it and did it once since then..
I know my cooler isn't the best but i figured it would let me hit 4 ghz without also hitting 90C. the TJ max is 99..

Any thoughts on how the Rasa 750 Rs240 would do with my current setup?

You misunderstood me.

I walked the OC up starting at 21x150. Then I went to 160, 170, 180, 190 then 191 to achieve 4.01ghz.

The problem that as I walk it up, as soon as I hit the 170 it starts freezing after POST and rebooting.

Its a decent kit. I am not big on those kits. They have come a long way since they first started. But IMO if you want a good H20 kit for a decent price, get the Swiftech H20-220. It runs right around 250, comes with all good parts and will do the trick for a cpu only loop...

What are your stock temps?
