I love G.skill Ram, I have used it in every PC I have built for the last 5 years, including my old gamer!

I am building a PC for a guy and he wants to be able to run ALOT of pearl scripts during the day while gaming at night, so its gonna bea 64gb RAM set up over 2 quad channels. My issue is the i74930k only wants 1.5v in the RAM. I was looking at the Gskill trident x But after reading this I don't want to have to throttle the ram back, he needs this thing to run wide open when in use. So my questions are here.

Can the i74930k work extremely well with the 1.65v RAM?
Will the x79 deluxe handle the speed well. (never had a problem with Asus boards)
Is there a better option to keep this thing crunching pearl scripts at a superfast rate?

1.65 is perfectly fine for 2133 and higher freqs, if going 1600 look for 1.5, 1866 look at 1.5-1.6 and 2133 and up 1.65, all will be perfectly fine - also at 64GB look for SC 10 or 11 at the highest

Ok, so here is a noob question. I can pick up 64 GB of Tridentx G.skill 2400 DDR for $700ish, or I can get 32GB of Trident x G.skill 2800DDR3 for $550ish. Would the 64gb be better for his pearl scripting or would the extra speed be more beneficial?

I'd go the 64GB, the 2800 would be nice, but I'd rather have the additional DRAM - more you can do with it

For 4930k hex core - Wish you good luck. one batch of chip can achieve low Vcore high speed and other batch just cant even OC over 4.5 ghz without crossing 1.4 on Vcore - no matter quad channel , dual channel or single channel yield the same result, only slightly better vcore with lower quad speed on memory. it apply to no matter wat brands of supper memory you using or even mixed with its.

Just make sure you purchase a single kit of RAM. Do not attempt to use two 32GB kits or 4 16GB kits. If you want 64GB, purchase a 64GB kit to ensure maximum performance, otherwise you may have to downclock and manually input other settings.

Thank you

Thank you for the advice, and that is what I did. However, now my issue is that windows is not recognizing all 64gb of ram (it only sees 48gb. Asus' CPU-Z program sees all 64 gb, but only shows it in a triple chanel set up, instead of the quad channel. Any advice to get windows all of the correct information?

My other issue is that the Asus x79 deluxe is keeping the RAM down to 1333mhz, this may sound like a rookie question, but is this the standard default without OCing it on this board?

Sounds like a stick may not be fully inserted, try reseating the DRAM - might also go into BIOS and raise the VCCSA will prob want want/need it at 1.2-1.25

I pulled all 8 sticks out and put them back in, Still same results as above. The Asus CPU-Z program sees them all, however windows and bios do not

doing the bios thing in a moment...

Make sure they are installed in sequential order, enable XMP, see how that works. Check that DRAM Frequency, timings, voltage, and VCCSA Voltage and set in their respective areas.

I have done that, Re - Reinstalled all of them and still have the same issue, after doing some other research regarding the 4930k, is it limited to 48g? Someone said it may be in another thread here. That would make me rather unhappy that the MBs can support it all, but the actual processor could not. Frankly, I don't know what else to do. I have followed all of these steps listed here. Any other suggestions?

(and before you ask, I have pulled ALL of them out, and booted up using just 1 stick each time. They all work (yes I kept them in order for re-installation as well)

What is VCCSA at? try at 1.2, and if needed up through 1.25
