This will to some degree depend on game and settings, but it appears that most games will prefer Gear 1 due to the lower latency. YMMV, though... ;-)Also what's the RKL consensus for gaming rig? Higher memory speed 1:2, say 4266 to 4800, or much tighter timings 1:1 3733-3866 ?
bios/uefi time will sync with Windows/OS time as far as I know.Um...a kinda stupid and little OT question: the time I set to UTC+2 in BIOS will occasionally/frequently be reset to UTC+0 even if I do not reset BIOS settings. This occurs with both M13A and M13H. Did I miss some switch? Is this a bug?!
Oh...I thought it was the other way round?! Point is that Windows will in most cases be 2h off and appears to be lazy to sync with the web. Therefore I have to manually force sync time. With Linux this is usually not an issue, because my Ubuntu install will sync with an NTP server upon boot/login.bios/uefi time will sync with Windows/OS time as far as I know.
Ok thanks, think I'll settle on 1:1 speeds then. Plays nicer with 4 sticks.This will to some degree depend on game and settings, but it appears that most games will prefer Gear 1 due to the lower latency. YMMV, though... ;-)
Well I need to set the VCCSA to 1.44V for 3866. It´s normal.Hey guys
Does this sound like my 11700K is dying?
Have been running 52, 52, 50, 50, 49, 49, 49, 49, 49 quite happily with 100:133, Gear 1, 3733MHz DDR4 @ 1.4V, Adaptive Voltage at 1.45V LLC5, VCCIO 1.05V, VCCIO OC 1.35V, VCCSA 1.25V and I had a game crash last night after which I couldn't POST at the same settings. Kept getting 55, 5d, 38 and 3A errors on the board. Been able to get back in today by setting VCCSA to Auto which according to HWiNFO is at 1.376V now. I haven't tried any games as yet as this is not really a comfortable voltage?
I suggest you update your BIOS to 0707 first, because I'm getting ~42.5nm with a little lower R/W/C on 4800-18-18-18-42 CR1. That is, if latency matters for you... ;-)
Will bios equivalent to 0801 and 0070 be released for Maximus XII Apex?View attachment 2488499
Memory Timing TRAS Fix and Improve system performance
0801 and 0070 bios Can be set below TRAS 28
ROG MAXIMUS XIII HERO 0801 BIOS
ROG MAXIMUS XIII APEX 0801 BIOS
ROG MAXIMUS XIII EXTREME 0801 BIOS
ROG MAXIMUS XIII EXTREME GLACIAL 0801 BIOS
For SUPERPI (APEX 0070 BIOS)
This is an old BIOS, so it is recommended to use it only when running SUPERPI. Because the latest BIOS has better performance
