    Re: system running slow!

    How full is your system drive? Have you checked the SMART status for errors (I recommend using a tool like CrystalDiskInfo)? Have you scanned for viruses/malware?

    With four rotating platter HDDs, a dedicated hardware RAID card is going to be of dubious value, especially for low overhead uses like RAID 0 or 10.

    I've done this on several GPUs, various DIMMs, and at least one motherboard, over the last decade, with mixed results (works about 50% of the time).

    Definitely worth a try if you have reason to...

    Re: Samsung 30nm ram :)

    I have 48GiB (twelve DIMMs) of this stuff, so far, spread over three systems. It is quite impressive for the money, though I am more limited by my memory controllers than the RAM itself.

    Re: Memory overheating/ failing memory test

    At rated speed and voltage most memory can get quite hot without producing errors.

    Have you tried testing the memory while the system is open, with a fan blowing at the SO-DIMMs? Before you do...

    Re: weird RAM frequency after OC'ing CPU

    Memory speed is set by a multipler of the reference clock. The stock reference clock is 200MHz, and changing this to OC, as you have, will change the possible memory speeds you can select.

    There...

    Re: Running ram's in dual channel causes BSOD

    Running more than one DIMM per channel often requires slightly looser timings/subtimings, or a bump to the vDIMM or MCH voltage.

    If both sets of memory are rated for the same speed and timings,...

    Pretty comprehensive testing, I like it.

    Would like to see how the VRM on that board handles a 2500k or 2600k and some overclocking though. Wouldn't mind a high-end gaming rig in a shoebox...

    Re: Overvolting Vapor-X 5870

    The non-reference PCB actually has better VRMs than the original reference version.

    Even so, I would not go past 1.2v 24/7 on air. 1.25v is asking form trouble long term, and 1.3v will probably...

    My first thoughts go to BIOS issues.

    Have you tried manually configuring everything, giving the memory slack timings/subtimings, etc?
