    Re: RAM won't POST at XMP after 6 months

    no other ivy bridge boards at the mo... I could just hold until I get other parts.

    And besides, I do have an oc'd i7 with 1600MHz+ ram. The diff between 1600MHz and 1866MHz is trivial in almost...

    Re: RAM won't POST at XMP after 6 months

    I swapped in other DRAM that used to oc to 2200MHz in this same system... They WON'T oc anymore, either.

    So, probably not the RAM.

    I guess I'm left with mobo and/or CPU. I think 1.55v is within...

    Re: RAM won't POST at XMP after 6 months

    I appreciate the responses.

    I was hoping to gauge how common this is. So far hard to say, maybe not common. I also wonder how long it will take to get the RAM back from G.Skill.. I guess I will...

    Re: RAM won't POST at XMP after 6 months

    I have some other sticks that used to run at 2100MHz in the system. I'll swap them in and see what happens. If I can oc the old sticks it seems reasonable to suppose the "formerly 1866 stix" degraded...

    Re: RAM won't POST at XMP after 6 months

    They sell a lot of 1.65v DRAM, and I find no warnings to avoid mixing them with Ivy Bridge. Surely by now we'd have heard something if this is an issue. This is a year-old response from Intel,...

    Re: RAM won't POST at XMP after 6 months

    Yes, it will POST up to about 1650.



    If the mobo will oc the memory up to 2400, is the controller still the one on the i7?

    Also, do you think 1.55v is "running at a higher voltage"? I think...

    RAM won't POST at XMP after 6 months

    I'm curious to know if others have seen this issue? Is it worth the hassle to RMA? Will the issue get worse? Or maybe, can there be another explanation such as mobo/BIOS?

    I have a set of G.SKILL...
  8. Re: Best performing gfx card needing only 1 6-pin power connector?

    Thanks JaccDude

    I've been bidding on a ASUS HD7850-DC2-2GD5-V2 via Ebay. Was a steal at $70, but can I spend $150 on EACH nephew?! :p...
  9. Best performing gfx card needing only 1 6-pin power connector?

    I'm curious what's the best graphics card I can get my nephew without also getting him a new PSU. He has 500W but only 1 6-pin connector on his PSU.

    Thanks!
  10. Re: G.Skill Ripjaws Z 2x8GB 1866 CL9 1.5V nicely overclock

    The timings tighten well, though the voltage seems necessary.

  11. G.Skill Ripjaws Z 2x8GB 1866 CL9 1.5V nicely overclock

    I picked up a 16GB kit at Newegg for $98.99; I'm well pleased. :)

    I quickly got them up to 2116MHz 9-11-11-31-1T 1.55V, and I bet they will go faster!

    Re: Now to UNDO my overclock?

    How about on this point: My system will last longer at lower temps?

    If Intel says Tj is 105C can I run at 104C with no worries? Or, will running at around 40C mean I get a much longer life from...

    Re: Now to UNDO my overclock?

    so if I set the LLC higher I get more juice at each ratio increase than with the LLC set lower? Or another way, the higher the LLC the broader the range of voltages applied in response to CPU load?

    What I seemed to find is if I set the voltages to manual I get the same voltage at idle as at load.

    Thanks for the reply.
