Can't really get it at 4K speed, but right under at 3933 or 3866 I can get it to run so far, but still need some tweaks I assume. I do have some DDR4 3200 CL14 coming in also to try, but would like to see if getting this to run at 4000 is doable or not. As a note, I tried this DDR on my 9900K running F10b bios and it hates it. Will go only as high as 3600 from random testing done and it ended up being slower at 3600 16-16-16-36 when I ran a gaming test, so back in went my DDR3200 CL16 32Gb (4x8gb) for now. I have it on my 9700K now with that running F9 bios and it runs and boots under more settings in bios, just not at 4000, less speed, but same timings it rated for.

You'll have a significantly easier time with 4 sticks, and get better results in the process.

If you're limited to 2 sticks, you'll need to hand tune the kit and will likely be limited to 3600-3800mhz.


I’ve gotten them to run 3600-3833 O-K for now, just have to fiddle with memory settings some more. Will see how they compare to 16Gb 2 sticks of 3200 CL14 and then try to OC those.

arrow0309 Hi everyone folks, after a couple of days personal research I've decided to buy an Aorus Z390 Ultra for my (arriving) 9900KF (deliddel + custom copper ihs).
It's the sweetest spot imho for that amount of money ( £239.99 on amazon.co.uk) and I have to admit I kinda love it's vrm (no offence to any Aorus Master or higher end any other owner).
Hope will all go smooth, nice and easy (fingers crossed) also with my sig ram, right now they're in quad ch at 4000 (cl17-18-17-38-320-1T) @1.40v but I'm curious what will I be able to achieve on this Aorus Ultra.

However, before I hit the "buy it now" button on amazon, anyone think this mainboard should not be "that much" appreciated?
Thanks guys!

Edit:
Never mind, found a bargain and got myself a Taichi Ultimate, see ya

@GBT-MatthewH , any ideas?
(Screenshots higher up in that thread, showing the EPS current of the Z370 gaming 7 (23 amps) vs the clamped Aorus Master (15.969 amps).

No reason for personal attacks. Just sayin.

FWIW my MSI video card and GB mobo both have addressable RGB capability, but I could care less and I use the default settings for both. Some of us would rather go fast than look good. I'm sure some of the folks here appreciate what you did with the testing, I'm just not one of those folks.

I know your frustration though, I was pretty annoyed that I had to spend 2 hours figuring out "the perfect combination" of drivers/software after corrupting my windows install. I can't live without my RGB though, its the only reason why I bought into a desktop or I would have just fixed the bios chip in my laptop.

robertr1 I'm so glad I don't have a single piece of GB software installed.

You can control fan curves and pump speeds in bios.

The software is many level of terrible and runs in the background. I have 0 faith in it for any security considerations.

Alrite so here is the deal. Here is what works for syncing ALL of my devices.
List of my devices that are rgb fusion 2.0 compatible all sync up together for me-
rgb Aorus z390 Master motherboard
rgb Aorus 2080 Ti xtreme waterforce 240mm AIO
4 fractal argb fans
strimer rgb motherboard cable
strimer rgb gpu cable
aorus rgb nvme ssd
t-force rgb MAX ssd
g.skill trident z RGB ram
aorus rgb headset
aorus rgb keyboard
2x phanteks argb strips


What you need to make this work:
