Thanks. Seems like I was doing the wrong thing, creating a recovery disk instead of the installation media.

There were no options to repair with the recovery disk. I don’t have a spare gpu to boot into windows either or that would have been my first course of action.

Best part is I can’t get the igpu on my 10700k to work at all. Might have been a defect from the beginning.
Takes me about 3 minutes to restore my operating system :)

Yep I took it for granted and didn’t make any backups. Didn’t have any issue with startup repair before this. It always worked. This time I think some driver and bcd files got royally screwed.

Haven’t done a clean install of windows in a decade, maybe it’s finally time to do so.

Can a memory oc corrupt a non os drive?

So I just found out that the cause of all my problems was a barracuda 3tb hdd which was also the thing making the weird clicky noises (should have thought of that,
I know).

It was basically preventing windows from booting. Two days and a damn reformat plus clean install and then I figure it out.

im doing some testing on the z490 dark and im setting 4800mhz in bios but only getting 4788mhz in windows. ive only tweaked primaries, dimm 1.5,sa 1.35 , io 1.3. I spoke to a higher up at EVga and he informed me the z490 dark and kingpin are the exact same boards. The kingpin is a binned dark thats capable of 5000mhz ram and the box is signed by kingpin. I tested 2 10900ks and they both have been bootable at 4800. One needed 1.4 io/1.45 sa and the other needs 1.3io and 1.35sa. if the sa /io was set to high the board would fail to train.

Asrock timing configurator doesn’t show the correct ram frequency. It’s always off by abit. Use hwinfo or cpu-z for frequency.

What is better for formula xii: Gskill 32 GB 4266C17D or Crucial Ballistix MAX 4400 MHz 16GBx2?
It might help if you share the specs of both kits in question.
  • Crucial Ballistix MAX 4400 MHz 16GBx2
    • CL19-19-19-43
    • 1.4V
    • Effective Latency at XMP ~ 8.18 ns
  • Gskill 32 GB 4266C17D
    • CL17-18-18-38
    • 1.45V 1.50V
    • Effective Latency at XMP ~ 7.97 ns
My first impression is that the G.Skill set should be faster, at least when both kits are operating with vanilla XMP settings.
On the other hand, the G.Skill 4266C17 kit requires more voltage than the Crucial does. It's running at 4266 MHz instead of 4400 MHz, but this is still worth pointing out.
Are you planning on overclocking / tuning which ever kit you end up purchasing? The Crucial kit may handle higher frequencies better if overclocking, but don't take my word for it.
Between these two I'd lean towards the G.Skill kit personally.

Well the g.skill kit is bdie, the crucial kit is probably rev b, so the kits are very different.

Do they both have temp sensors?
I know the Gskills do
If you're going to push them it might be handy :)

This spec is wrong, 32GB 4266c17d is at 1.5V.

Bus won't always be running at 100MHz, sometimes 99.8MHz, so it might be 4788 or sth.

4266c17d runs actually faster than Max 4400.

If you choose Max 4400 you should look at the speed of 4800+ 18-24-42.

I am waiting for that 3800C14D-32GTZN kit.

Oooh you're right, I was looking at a different G.Skill set of RAM with a similar name (F4-4266C17Q), nice catch.

F4-3800C14D-32GTZN - The specs on this kit look insane.
  • 3800MHz
  • CL14-16-16-36 @ 1.50V
  • 32GB (2x16GB)
This is most likely Samsung B-die right? Typically B-die XMP profiles have straight timings (ie: 3600 MHz CL16-16-16-36).

I found it on some website I've never heard of: memoryC.com supposedly has this set for a whopping $375.

F4-4266C17D-32GTZRB any day.

Same performance as 300mhz higher clocked single rank 2x8GB if both are tweaked, in some games.

This kit is pretty much garanteed 4400c17 tweaked , even 4600c17 i doable :)

Memory overclocking seems to damage the OS a fair bit
I've had to reload it from my spare M.2 using acronis about 10 times after corrupting Windows
Some people have that problem more than others. I don't know why.

Maybe it's a combination about type/brand motherboard and ssd?

Some "never" has that problem, and some have the problem all the time.

Yup, this is bdie. Same spec as current 3800C14D-16GTZN but with DR layout. memoryc rep says they should have it in 2 weeks if ordered. I might just wait for NE.

I think some people are more conservative with their overclocking too
I can sometimes spend the evening blue screening or freezing the PC at a high memory frequencies trying to find the best settings and I imagine some won't do that :p
I also manage to corrupt the BIOS :)

Weird thing is the hdd dying during mem oc. That’s a new one even for me.

Could be related to IRST or Samsung rapid mode.
