in most cases overclocking ram means you have to loosen timings and underclocking means you can tighten them up just like voltage you could lower it at stock speeds if your system and ram allow it.

I know that people are allowed there opinions and soforth but when people are offering advice and answering your questions or even just informing you of something there is no need to chuck it back in there faces with stupid remarks.
we all here to help, inform, learn and teach.
There was nothing stupid or insulting that I said, so no apologies are in order. So you are talking about ram that is NO LONGER manufactured. I am an overclocker, as are most people who buy a Crosshairs V Formula Z.. No reason to buy used ram that can't do higher frequencies. I use the FSB for overlcoking and no way 1600 dimms are going above 2133. Mine have gone above 2300 without any issues, though they are rated at 1866. I am seeking a 5.0 GHZ overclock. with an HT Loink speed approachi8ng 3000 mhz. a cpu-nb frequency of about 2400 and ddr frequency of 2400. As soon as my Swiftech H320 cooler is on the market in a couple of weeks with ts 360mm radiator, I'll be attempting it on my very leaky FX-8350 cpu.

Even though they may not be able to be purchased new they can still be found
Amd systems love tighter timings at lower speeds whereas intel likes higher speeds

1600 at 6 6 6 18 would most likey be better than 1866 at 9 9 9 24

I cannot believe what I'm seeing.

am I retarded?

Which is the exact same defect I originally received. The motherboard sure looked brand new, it even had the clear sticker thing on the south bridge.


is it possible for this to be memory compatibility issue, but then how come it boots up, just not in the DIMM-A2 ***


Im about to shoot myself in the face with a 12 gauge!!!!

edit:// Just to clarify this


there are 4 slots on the motherboard, 2 black and 2 red. They are called DIMM-A1, DIMM-A2, DIMM-B1, DIMM-B2.


Here is my results when inserting 1 stick of 8GB G.Skill

DIMM-A1
BOOT FAIL

DIMM-A2
FAAAAIILLLEEDD (beep beep beep beep) (50 on the motherboard display )

DIMM-B1
BOOT SUCCESSFUL
DIMM-B2
BOOT SUCCESSFUL (blue screen) after a while






Now with 2 stick inside B1 and B2 I get 15.2GB usable. and still single channel.

does this pretty much clarify that the A2 slot is dead, or shoot me in the head its actually the memory compatibility issue? Because I can get my hands on some QVL memory first thing in the morning.

sorry to hear that mate, ...it seem to be a good idea to have a look at the serial number before & after any RMA (just to be sure that they replaced it and didnt send you back your old one)...
sure if you can, try other RAMs models , just to kill the doubts about "un-compatibily"... if the problem still the same you ll have your answer about the dead slots...

I actually surprisingly got it to work.

After messing around with it for a good 5 hours, I took the board out of the case and hooked it up on its box. it didn't help

I am really not sure what I did to fix this, I tried re-seating the RAM about 50 times, easy.

The last thing I did was insert a single stick into A2--boot failed, I then proceeded to insert it into B1 --- boot failed, then I inserted it into B2 and it boots up so I power down and I insert the 2nd stick into the A2 slot and it shows up all good..

Makes me wonder *** is this all about kookoo.gif





Also my set up seems to be running really solid and stable right now.

My cpu idles at 26c socket and 10c core. when I ran prime95 at stock 4.0ghz @ 1.3vcore and my ram at 1866mhz my max cpu temp I noted was 41c for the scoket and 33.5c for the core.

this looks promising for overclocking.

I am wanting to push my 8350 and ram further but I am worried about the north and south bridge getting to hot. I have the CHVFZ and wonder if I should water-cool those or will the stock heat sinks handle the heat? I have the H100i cooling the CPU now and I am not worried about that. How hot is too hot for the NB and SB? Should I even be worried at all? It's my 1st build and I have never done any water-cooling but for the CL H100i.

I wouldn't worry about the southbridge. Now for the northbridge, if you have added some extra voltage for stability, it might get a bit hot but anything under 65c I would consider safe. If you already don't have HWINFO64 then get it, that software is genius it will tell you the temp of NB and SB.


I have the Corssair H110 with 280mm radiator and like I said above, it looks promising temperature wise.

Thanks p2mob,

After 10 minutes of Prime 95 the NB temps were at 59C. It's got me worried a little. Maybe my overclock is not good. I will work on it.

I have seen mine hit 60c during prime95. Usually it idles at around 38c-40c...the lowest I've seen it is 33c.

What you can do is point a small fan towards NB, it should reduce your NB temp while strss testing.
This is what what I have.


If you're not comfrtable with setting a small size fan on the gpu, then check out this little guy, quite helpful.

What is your CPU/NB voltage set to?
