Hey Guys,

Here is a list of the memory we test in Taipei with every other BIOS release, we have 2 other test sites, one in the UK and one in China. I will post the lists of the other test sites as soon as i get them, for now i figured this is better than nothing. It would be very nice if those of you who use memory that isnt on this list could report back and let us know if the memory works fine or if you have any issues with it. If you do have any issues with it please post detailled specs and a list of your BIOS settings.
Here is a template to list your BIOS settings (http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=194182)

Thanks a lot in advance! :toast:

Might cause problems?
Note: If you have any issues with your memory try to disable XMP and enter the main timings manually (for example 7-7-7-21) and set vdimm manually. this should solve any xmp problems you might experience.

Mushkin -------- 1800 - 887 - Ascent 1800 (can not run stable at stock speeds, possible spd compatibility issue, try another spd or manual timings)


If you have some kits of memory that arent on the list, it would be really cool if you could check them to see if they work.
this will help us to find out if there are any compatibility issues.

You can add Compustocx CSX Diablo03-2000 (D9JNL) 2x1.024 MiByte
and Compustocx CSXO-CEC3-1333 2x1.024 MiByte

Both with poor SPD, but running smooth oced and non-oced.

4Gb G.Skill PC3-12800 TT works fine @ stock (8-8-8), doesnt really oc far, but thats the usual 2x2 GB and x48 syndrome. I'd recommend atleast 1,5V nb voltage though if you plan to tweak timings.

Cellshock blue go like crazy on the blackops.

yeah i know... i think there are more engineers who play around with XMP and EPP trying to make it work right than end users actually using it ^^

ok, so yours werent the vipers then... so there is 1866 and 1866 viper?
i guess the vipers are with xmp and possible d9jnl vs d9gtr/d9gts and no xmp for the older ones?

whats the stock timings?
888 for the 2000 and also 888 for the 1333?

thanks for posting the settings too btw, i was thinking of making a list of recommended settings for each memory kit, but im not sure how exactly to do it yet since most of them will require pretty much the same settings :D

about the cellshocks... i really wonder if i binned them this well or if its the spd... we used a slightly changed reference spd from micron and 2 people already told me this spd gave them better results than the stock spd that came with their memory. ill go ahead and post the reference spd in the first post for people to try out and in case they have issues with some memory.
its safe to say that 90% of the issues that people might have with memory are spd related.

i collected a bunch of mem from all 3 labs here and will test them quickly
Im testing with G28 now, just quick bootup check with BIOS defaults and then a few loops of memtest.
This should be good enough to see if there are any fundamental problems with the SPD/BIOS compatibility and Memory/Mainboard PCB compatibility :)

They all passed just fine :D

I've had no problem with 2G sticks of OCZ ReaperX 6-5-5-timings at stock settings G26, though I need to flash the SPD to get it to run 1333.

MY board broke before I could flash the SPD, and I've only just got the replacement.

I'll update the info when I get to try it again @ G28 and then flash the SPD (if I Need to).

I'm using Corsair TW3X4G1800C8DF without any problems with G27. XMP profile says DDR3 1800 at 8-8-8-24 2T. But I'm running them at DDR3 1600 7-7-7-18 1T at 1.8 volts, performance level 6. I've run them at DDR3 1800 8-8-8-22 2T 1.93 vollts but I'm using an QX 9650, so running at that fsb takes a little more voltage than I like to use all the time.

saaya
09-17-2008, 05:48 PM
hmmmm sounds like they arent 100% stable... either the SPD needs tuning or we need to adjust our bios a bit...

I've tested some kits lately...

Crucial Ballistix PC3-16000 CL9 EPP : Ran fine at the specced 9-9-9-28 settings, and they are probably based on Micron D9GTS
G.Skill F3-14400CL8D-2GB PI : Ran fine at the specced 8-8-8-21 settings
CSX (Compustocx) Diablo3-2000-2GB-KIT : Ran fine at 2000MHz with 8-7-6-19 T1 which is specified as the rated speed...

Currently testing a Mushkin 996626 XP3-14400.... I'll keep you guys updated on how that kit runs...

UPDATE : The Mushkin kit is having problems running atleast on the G30 bios without handsetting the timings etc... This kit has been tested on Asus Rampage Extreme, P5E3WS and P5E3 Deluxe motherboards prior to sending so the modules should be fine...

they work fine when xmp is disabled, once you enable xmp it sets them to 7-6-6 (sorry, dont remember rest out of head), but they are rated for 7-7-7 with mp, 1,67v on the nb and watercooling it does solve that stability problem though:p:

After setting the timings by hand the Mushkin kit runs fine, but leaving anything on auto will not let the memory run over 1650MHz or so... I've been too busy torturing the board to setup the watercooling for it...:p: The NB temps are allrite though, even with just the 40mm fan...
The CSX kit really is pretty nice, and it should retail at a decent price when it hits the shelves (around 140€). The Patriot 1800LLK was the most surprising that I've tested... They ran nicely at 8-7-7-18 at 2000MHz and would've done more if I'd just had the time to tweak them some more...:D

1375MHz is a difficult speed to achieve given the FSB: DRAM dividers

As I currently have another dual channel kit in the RMA loop (major fail memtest86+ v2.01 test 8) I'm reluctant to exceed spec voltage of 1.7V and the best I have managed to date within spec from these modules is 1066MHz 6-6-6-18-1N or my present 1333MHz 7-7-7-20-1N

Is it possible you're confusing the Low Latency 7-7-7-20 KHX11000D3LLK2/2G (http://www.valueram.com/datasheets/KHX11000D3LLK2_2G.pdf) with the Ultra Low Latency 5-7-5-15 KHX11000D3ULK2/2G (http://www.valueram.com/datasheets/KHX11000D3ULK2_2G.pdf) ?

I have to agree with general consensus of opinion, your personal product support is outstanding to say the least and much appreciated.

im not sure, i checked a review of the KHX11000D3LLK2/2G and it seems to be based on elpida, just like the KHX11000D3ULK2/2G.
so the LLk wont oc as good as the ULK i think, but pretty similar :)
try cas 5-7-5 or even 5-7-3 :)

xmp does work, but it causes problems with the qx9770 it seems... but thats more of an fsb strap issue i think.
the rest of the xmp issues are caused by inconsistencies in xmp profiles which we dont have the time to iron out for every memory vendor :(

good to hear the team xtreem 1600 works fine too :)

Corsair --------- ver3.1

I can tell you that there is some kind of problem with these revision. Below 1990MHz everything is ok,but when you try higher it is no go... I tried EVERYTHING and just cant get it stable. Also pissed off with that score, I took of HS (and a few chips with it cause there is some kind of extra strong adhesive ) and there are micron GTR chips...
A few days earlier I had a chance to test 2x1gb Crucial Ballistix 1600MHz (also confirmed GTR chips) on this board. Put them into board,turn it,go into bios and just adjust primary settings (500x6,1:4,vdimm 2.1v,nb 1.56v) and normally boot to windows. Run 1m Super pi and everything was ok. That was impossible with corsair memory. But I didn't stop there. Open clockgen and tried to see how far will it go... Super pi 1m crashed after 2080 @ 2.1v 8-7-6.That was impossible settings with corsair even to boot with them,not to bench it...

Hi Saaya!

Good news: BlackOps arrived today. Bad news: Popped the Mushkin 996626s (Ascent 1800 MHz CL 8-8-7-20 at 1.85-1.9V 2x1GB kit) review samples on the board: Boot fine at 1066.

Even hand setting timings won't work: Post code 54 (with and without beeping), managed to get a 3 second post screen at 1600 MHz before the system reboots and then refuses to boot.

cheers

Hi, Been playing with some Super Talent W1600UX4G7 kit. They ran fine at stock settings have pushed up to 1800mhz with looser timings/more volts. But just like my G.skill kit they both dont like anywhere near 1900mhz.

Hi , after two weeks of waiting for my CPU replacement ( got a Q9550 E0 now) I've finally got my PC set and running .
I got a G-skill F3-12800CL7D-4GBHZ , my CPU currenlty @ to 3575mhz ( 420x8.5) , and ram set at 1:3.2 - 1340 accordingly with 6-6-6-15 timings. Voltage on CPU - 1.35
NB- 1.375 ( shows 1.41 in Vista with that weird foxconn program) .
RAM - 1.801 ( shows 1.89-1.91 in Vista iwth that program again ) ( if I lower it even a bit - it will freeze in games and prime tests)
SB - 1.5 ,CPU pll 1.54
now the problem is that no matter what I do I can't get G-skill stable at 1600mhz with 7-7-7-18 and 1.9 , tried 8-8-8-21 and 1.9 - still got E1 and beeping . tried to put 1.5V on NB - same error
Ram sits in grey slot since my Nirvana cooler covers one of the blue slots ( thanks to that NB fan X_X .)
If i go anywhere beyond 420 fsb - I will have random freezings with no overheating reasons whatsoever. :shakes:
Any suggestions on what I should do to get this ram stable at rated speed ? ( tried to put main timing manually - wont even boot).
I was thinking on trying to put 1.38 on CPU and try to overclock it pas my current limit.
Also I was wondering will it be safe to try 2.0 V on RAM ?

i figured making sure BloodRage has great mem compatibility out of the box was more important than trying to fix some probs BlackOps might still have, hope you understand...

LOL, same thing happened to me :D
i was very surprised how easily the chips came off the pcb...
well my guess is that the spd just doesnt play along nicely with our bios... not beeing able to clock to 2ghz doesnt mean theres a compatibility issue...
have you tried to flash another SPD like the micron reference spd or the one of the mem that clocks better for you?

DShmmm have you used timings that work well with other mem when setting the timings manually? setting timings too high can cause problems actually when you set them manually... again i guess its a problem of the spd not playing nicely with our bios... its a bit late i know :P
but if you want and still have the mem, you could try the micron reference spd and see if it works well with that. if it does, then could you make an spd dump with spdtool or thaiphoon burner and email it to me so i can try to debug it here?

the mem does work fine on other boards right?

again, could you try the micron reference spd and check if that makes a difference? if yes, please email me an spd dump! thanks :)
for higher speeds you might have to adjust the clock skews tho... i remember i was stuck below 2ghz until i adjusted the :banana::banana::banana::banana: skews for the mem...
the following settings gave me the best results:
white dimm clock dll adjust -4
controll dll adust +1

remember you might have to enter those settings, then hit safe and exit, you might get code 54, then power off. wait for a few seconds, power on again and then enter bios, and hit save and exit again. those clock skew adjustments sometimes dont work if you just hit save and exit, you have to power off and then apply the settings to make them work sometimes.

most likely the fsb is holding you back tho... those quads dont clock very well fsb wise... have you tried 6x cpu multi? if that works then the cpu might need more vcore or better cooling to run 8.5x400+ fsb since 1.35v is a bit low.

Prime95 Blend test
OCCT perestroika ( sometimes)
Intel Burn test
it seems that GTA 4 is working better with default parameters set in bios . BUT for some reason in default NB Volts are set to 1.5 0_o
I ran PL6 on 439-444 . Yesterday I was playing with 1T timings also , and got CTD in age of conan exactely after 1h of gameplay each time . GTA 4 CTD in 25-30 mins ( never exeedet this time) .
When backed up to 8.12 ATI catalyst drivers got my PC frozen in gta4 in 10 min 0_o . Now testing prime 95 blend test with 444 x 8.5 .... gonna see if it was stable when I come home today .
NB temps are fine - 45 under prime , 47-48 under games .
I had bigger temps before , but I activated my side fan that almost the same size as mobo itself :rofl: .
I had 2h of prime stable with really low temps ( 52 on cpu core 1 at max , other never exeeds 50 ) with PL6 , 444 fsb , and 6-6-6-12 timings on ram with 2T ) . I don't remember if I tested the AoC for more then an hour though ( I think I did , but I ' have to check again) . but that was on G30 bios .
I am aming to run Pl6 , because the last time I checked PL7 didn't make much of a difference in terms of stability :yepp:
I know that 9.1 catalyst can cause GTA instability , since there are couple more people that experience same problems , but AoC freezing exactely in 1 h each time .... seems sucpesiouse . Though then again it might be my 4870x2 @ 800/3600 that overheats ( even though the temps shown in everest and ccc are fine) .... but I had the same @ before my PSU got killed , and even GTA was running more then 1h , with some "out of vid. memory error" .
*Update* I'm not the only one who has same issues with conan eather 0-o ..... different timings , but same idea ; lock up with no error code ... and have horizontal flickering like lines on the screen hmmmm , man i'm just unlucky when it comes to gaming ... well then what else is there that is very very very resuource hungry ... ah I can try Clear Sky and FC2 ^____^

I am back on my Ipower because the board does not like my QX9770 ( Won't post if I go over 8X multi)

Tried 2 sticks at the end, but never got it to post over the 8X multi. PLL was 1.5, NB was 1.56, SB 1.68 I even went up to the 2.1 mem voltage. I had Water on my NB and CPU at the time. Don't remeber the NB temp, but the CPU was idling at 24 C.

Akrian, failures after around 1 hour sound like a game bug to me... sounds like a memory leak where the application starts using more and more memory and doesnt free the memory it doesnt need anymore back to windows. after some time it hits a windows limit of how much an app can use and the app crashes. but im not 100% sure...

temps of the different sessions are the same?
one day rock stable the next unstable hmmm try to figure out what you changed between those sessions...
must be some setting or something else like running some app in the background maybe? or different room temps?

could you please start your own thread about this, its a bit OT for this one, thanks :D

Thank you Saaya. I was directed here from the OC forum I'm usually at in order to better understand the board as well as the difficulties I could face, and they also specifically stated that you would be able and more than willing to help. Needless to say, I look forward to the build and to maybe contributing my findings, if any....

Now I see that a previous poster got 8GB of the Special Ops Urban Elite OCZ 1600 to work @ 1700, and then had problems with 4GB.... Unfortunately, I pulled the trigger on 2x2 GB before the second post about the problems with two sticks, so I hope I can get it working....

Well the OCZ Special Ops Urban Elite (2x2 GB) is working for me so far, and rock solid stable. 8-8-8-24 2T 1.955V 1:4 (333) @ 421 FSB. I'll keep trucking tonight if possible, but it's stable so far at 1684MHz. Passes memtest with 0 errors through 200% at least. Also, Intel burn test passes 20 tests with a max temp of 69-70C.

02-17-2009, 06:44 AM
I'm in an OC rut on my system now with the RAM. Highest I've gotten it to clock on 1.9V is 1684. I can get the CPU stable at 4.01GHz (445 FSB), which is where I want it, but I then have to move the RAM down to 1:3.2. That means I'm running at 1425. 1:4 would give me 1780MHz, which is where I would like to be. I'm at 1.9V (which is what it's rated for), 8-8-8-24 2T. Should I try increasing the voltage, or loosening the timings? If so, what would be some reasonable settings? 9-9-9-24? 2.1V?

quake6
02-18-2009, 05:59 AM
Try with the same voltage,but raise latency (9-9-9-24)... If you can't boot or it isn't stable, then higher voltage also wouldn't help...

I will try that when I get home tonight. Looks like I'll either be running 4.01GHz with 1425MHz RAM, or 3.8GHz with 1700MHz RAM. I guess which one depends on how tight I can get the timings to go at 1425MHz.

Oh, and by the way, these sticks run better in the white slots (2 and 4) for sure. They are definitely more stable at higher clocks than when they were in 1 and 3.

ragingclue

OK got my hands on the OCZ Flex EX earlier this weekend, and started to fool around with them a bit. Claimed timings are 8-8-8-30, but I tried that on the 1:4 333 divider, and no luck. 490 seemed to at least boot (54 beeping, then cycled power, and it at least kept me out of OC recovery), but I'm thinking these sticks may be problematic by nature. Reading reviews on other forums and sites seems to lead me to believe even the people with the 790 digi boards are having issues getting 8-8-8. I had the Spec Ops Urban Elite before, but anything over 1700MHz was a crapshoot as far as stability went. I think I'd be happy at 1800-1900 at the rated timings, but I just wanted to see first if they ran as rated.

BTW, I'm limited to the white slots because of the size of these monsters, but that's where my Spec Ops RAM worked better anyway.

So far my settings I'm trying are 8-8-8-30, 2T, tRFC 88-92 (as per OCZ Support). Vdimm is 1.993 I believe. I was reading through some posts which stated that slots 3 and 4 (or 2 and 3 if you start with 0) require GTL adjustment.... Is this correct?

Also, anyone chime in as to which BIOS would be best for use on a dual-core in my application? I'm using G30 right now.

@ragingclue, I've tried the P05, G30 & G32 (current) with my E8600, they're all pretty much the same but the G32 appears to allow lower vcore for the same oc, with the P05 & G30 I needed 1.25V to be stable at 4.0GHz, with the G32 I am running at 1.225V (VID) for 4.0GHz also with lower NB and VTT (NB 1.25V as opposed to 1.281V and VTT 1.20V as opposed to 1.275V)

Anyone know about compatibility of OCZ Gold 2xGB 1600 OCZ3G16004GK? Thinking about buying a Black Ops and need 4GB RAM tho budget rather small at the moment. $45 after rebate for these sticks.

I think I already mentioned to you(?) on another thread that I have successfully run these on Blackops : PVT36G133ELK

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820220369

and these SHOULD BE the closely related to the ones you list.

However.. the price on newegg has jumped about $80 higher :down: than it was a few weeks ago .. o_O

Did something happen in the memory world or did the manufacturer/retailer catch wind that these sticks were underrated?

O yeah, craaazyyy... lol. :) Glad 2x2 elk has the same price since I first saw in in newegg. and now 2 kits of 2x2gb (8gb total) is cheaper than the tripchan you mentioned.


thanks a lot XmikeX, what kinda OC were you able to do?. :)

I don't have the time, energy, or the required cooling solutions right now to go crazy yet, so basically i'm at the following settings :

http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showpost.php?p=3764530&postcount=46

OK for benching up to 456 FSB ..and 24/7 stability hopefully somewhere in the 446-450 range .. as yet to be determined. :)

The performance is acceptable to me, although it is clearly not miraculous. Considering the price newegg had for those -three- 2 GB sticks $97 ($67 with rebate) .. This tri-channel kit was :down: a good deal 6-8 weeks ago.

Hey XmikeX, guess what.

I just found these and it's really tempting.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820220365&Tpk=PVT36G1600ELK

people keep telling me that these tripchan kits are specifically made for i7 x58 platforms, but you seem to have it pinned down even running that 1333 kit @ 1813mhz 1.8v so I thought I should just give it a go, keep the other stick in case 1 goes bad. :)

Follow up question about tripchan. They have XMP profiles for the I7, is there a way for me to change the XMP profile?

You could try reprogramming the SPD, however, if it doesn't take, you hosed your RAM. I'd just disable XMP and set the timings manually. Please post results with this kit.

Has anyone tried these > Corsair TW3X4G1600C9DHX 4GB (2x XMS3 2GB) PC-12800 (1600MHz) XMP DDR3 RAM, 2x240-pin DIMMs, Non ECC Unbuffered, 9-9-9-24 RAM on the Blackops?
Looked like a good price @$141 aud, but only if they work...

I should have them by end of week.
All I need then is PSU and VGA card (next pay) and an OS, although I should (I hope) at least be able to get the thing to post and e3nter bios without installing an OS.
Might just have to use Ubunta until I purchase a Windows OS.

Anyone know if BLACKOPS and linux os get on?

Maybe I'll be testing out an unknown RAM and OS.
Hope it's not too fussy about what vga card I put in, the compatable list is, once again, short. Hope it's just because many have not been tried...

FWIW this OCZ Platinum 1600 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227297) worked like a charm in my BO. Even at 1800 with just over 2.0v. Fairly sure could go higher.

My kit for sale too (along w my BO). PM if interested.

Are you addressing me?

I have the 2x2 kit running at around 1400 MHz. I cannot run 1600 MHz without it giving non-stop beeps.

Well, guess thats better thasn 1333, but worth the $$$?
Not big bucks so I suppose no big deal.
Mebbe I'll have beginners luck and get more out of them. :rolleyes:
4Gb @ 1400 is way better than my current setup, so I can live with it. :yepp:

Out of curiosity, what sort of NB cooling are the ppl. who are getting 1600+ fsb using?
My NB temp is sitting on 43c @ 1333 fsb and default (1.25) voltage. I think the included fan is dicky, maybe I damaged it's wire/s when I sleeved them. Hope it's the fan and not the fan plug on MB, couldn't be arsed RTM the whole thing for 1 fan plug, would rather just get a "Y" connector and run it off one of the others, or even just use a molex powered fan. Will replace ASAP, hope it lowers temps.
Do larger diameter fans help on NB? Or is water cooling the minimum requirement for NB to run reasonably cool?

edit: pulled side off case and checked NB fan - again. It isn't working - at all - even on other fan connectors.
It was working last time I checked it. That explains my high NB temps I guess. :) At least with no fan on there NB temps are slightly cooler than with a non-functioning one.

I'm not sure if anyone has added the F3-1600CL9D-4GBGT1 2GBx2 kit [I saw a "TT" kit], but this set works great; currently running it at 8-8-8-21-2T @ 1900Mhz on 1.87v

OCZ Intel Extreme @ 1600MHz


XMP - Passed (well it boots... But who uses that crap)

Manual - 7-6-6-18 @ 2Volts T2 Passed memtest + prime8hours


One thing I have noticed is that setting T1 in the bios wont budge the cmd rate reported by CPUz and memset from T2 So i usually leave it on auto. :shrug:
Otherwise everything checks out

hi I had the blackops and ripjaw 1600 from overclockers u.k
board would not post phoned o/c u.k they sead that memory was not
compatabile had to RMA board+ memory for testing.
It turned out that the board was bust so thay sent me a
new one but still sead that ripjaw was not compatabile
they sead patriot viper would be alright.
I got the new board back and the patriot viper 1600
all was well.
hopes this helps

mentiond this to saaya the other day

does this bios make the ram straps work ?

i wasited 17min's of my life trying to get the blackops to work with the p06 bios

1:1 = c1
1:2 = c1
1:2.4 = c1
1:2.665 = c1
1:3 = c1
1:3.2 = c1
1:4 200 = c1
1:4 266 = c1
1:4 333 = c1
1:4 400 = c1
auto = working but ram at 400mhz os speed

all straps apart from auto dont work and give C1 at post
auto works but the ram speed is far to slow at 400mhz

ive got it all on vid of every strap test with some harsh swear words in there also
will put it up on the tube once edited

edit:
cpu is a e4300(SL9TB) @4ghz
ram is patriot vipers d9gtr @ 2.1v 7-6-5-15 (as tested and working up to 900+mhz on the x48 asus rampage extreme)



sounds like a bad spd or the spd doesnt work well with BO...
try to flash them to an spd that is known to work on BO, check the compatibility list in the tweaks n guides section :)

so
Patriot ---------- 1600 - 777 - 1600LLK
Patriot --------- 1800 - 888 - 1800LLK
Patriot Viper --- 1800 - 888 - PVS32G1800LLK[/COLOR]
Patriot Viper --- 1866 - 888 - may require an SPD or BIOS (G28 or later) update to boot


mine are the ones in red btw lol

had to do mod the spd lol all i did was add a xmp profile and now they work fine apart from 1:3 400
