    If that's the case, why bother with anything other than X79? Quad channel DDR3-1600 bandwidth often is higher than even Haswell tweaked setups.

    but that's just my 5 cents...

    As long as it scales in performance, I will run it. take note that you can't compare different platforms... though Ivy and haswell need to be properly dialed in for maximum performancewhen running higher ram clocks... Now everything in my world turns around efficiency :p

    I did test the dividers on SB-E and Ivy-E and it scales with increased ram frequency. Now SB-E is a wuss and some CPUs don't even do 2400... IVY-E is something else

    plz run 2600 10-12-12-24 1T tRDRD 5 and tWRWR at 4 versus 2933C11-13-13-35 2T on your Haswell rig... you will be amased how performance goes down in certain tests if you can't tighten up the sec and tertiary subs man...

    Some extract of my Haswell article:

    Take note that the 2933MHz run was highly tweaked in the bios, adjusting all the secondary and tertiary timings manually to maximise the performance. With the bios auto adjusting all the settings, the performance was far worse and even slower then the 2400C10 results.

    I guess I should run quad 2666C10 since my 3820 is capable and the RIVE is actually a great board and easy to work with.

    Can do close to 3k (2996) with 4 sticks on Hero but for me the sweet spot for performance is 2600-2800 with tight secondaries.

    I with Avexir 2800 CL12 (4x4Gb Hynix CFR) i cant even 2933 with M6E.

    with 1.74V
    the TRAS can get a 17/18 slightly increasing the voltage.

    It's really hard to clock CFR higher than 2800 on this board. MFR is much easier, even double-sided 8GB sticks.

    RMA'ed my M6E for a store credit at Newegg, replaced it with a Sabertooth Z87 and I was finally able to get a decent stable OC. Next I will try for 47/44.

    I have no idea why this was so hard to do on the Extreme, but it was easy on the Formula.

    nice Shiranu the formula series for me always where better on mem even my maximus 5 do thing that the extreme dont, each one has its strong parts

    Sorry I was so panicked I put this in the x79 thread not the z87 thread--

    New Topic--I need some help asap. My Maximus VI won't boot in the allotted 300 second timeout for an Areca 1882 raid card as long as drives are connected to most of the ports, this wasn't happening when I was testing the same card on a z87 ASRock board. If I have 2 ssds attached it boots somewhat quickly, and it was booting with drvies attached but took around 120 seconds when it booted on an ASRock in like 45 seconds. About a week ago suddenly it starting taking the entire 500 seconds and would maybe come up just before a restart warning from the controller and other times it goes all the way through the time and the controller forces a restart. I've had Areca problems with other Asus boards what is the bios issue and these raid cards? I tried gen 2, gen 3, auto, connecting one array and connecting all drives---the only thing that I can get to boot right now is just an array of 2 ssds, running Areca 1.51 firmware and previous Asus bios, not 0804. what's my solution? I need these drives up to access my files and mail--help Raj

    Does anyone know if/when there will be Windows 8.1 drivers available? I know officially it isn't released until October. Just wondering if they will be available sooner or the day of its official release.
