It survived 15 minutes of stress test in RealBench with the 16gb option, without breaking a sweat. This is exactly where it crashed for me before.
Now I can pinpoint exactly where my mistake was and tell you guys for sure that, my problem was within my memory timings. Since the new memory timings were opened, I was always trying to force 14-14-14-14-34-48
As you can see... In my case, at least, leaving that last value on auto
made it for me.
So much testing to do now... I'm gonna try 3600mhz again tonight.
I wish I could bclk OC without my Samsung 850 evo m.2 (this is my OS drive) disappearing from the bios if I exceed the 101.4 mark.
Even then, I guess 101.4 is better than being stuck at 100. Considering that any value beyond 104.8 will drop all pcie lanes to GEN2.
What is your opinion on disabling bank swap group? What exactly is it doing? What have you found different on your results with it enable / disabled ?
BTW, having geardown enabled overrides your CR to 1. So as long as you have geardown enabled you can leave CR on auto as it will yield the same results.
I have a 960 evo M.2, it will run upto about 103.2 ish MAX before I start having issues and have to turn the M.2 link to "gen 2". the M.2 runs a bit slower in Gen 2, goes to about 2200 read and 1100 write, no impact on GPU performance at all. Try turning your PLL upto 1.85, that seemed to help me, just be aware that your temp readings will be off.
No idea on bank group swap. People that know more about memory then I do suggested that it be disabled with 2x Dimms, so I did and forgot to re-enable it when I dropped the other 2 dimms in. Can't say I have see a performance impact one way or the other.
Yeah, GD forces 1T, I just left it at 1T because I don't like auto settings. They are not really "auto" they are just default.
