I'm on an ASRock Z44 Extreme4, with 4 Sticks of KHX2400C11D3/4GX (2400MHz CL11 Kingston), and I simply can't get past 4.3 GHz.
I've followed a couple different guides, messed with all kinds of settings I've seen (and with everything disabled as seen in second picture here: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/z77-express-ivy-bri... I couldn't even get past 4.2), and my best success was with leaving everything at default values, upping the multiplier to 43 and the voltage to 1.265)
I've tried voltages of up to 1.4v, Windows 7 64bit will still BSOD/hang/crash/similarly fail to boot with anything over 43 x 100.
I have no heat issues whatsoever, even after hours of Aida/prime95 the cores average 60 degrees, with absolute max reported in CPUID HW Mon of 60, 63, 56, 56.
I've seen several threads here with people running 4.5ghz, and even some 4.6 and more, what's wrong?
If you need info, just lemme know what and I'll do my best to provide it.
Thanks for any input.
Edit: LoadLineCalibration is Level 1, which appears to be the most extreme setting.
defualt the bios. set the multiplier, to 45. set the voltage to something like what sr-71 has going. then try bumping (ever so slightly) the north bridge voltage (I know it doesnt say north bridge but the name escapes me at the moment, anyone?)
I've increased all voltages but VCCSA a bit, and can now boot, and seems stable, even if daemon tools just had an app crash (which is a first), I'll try lowering them one by one to figure out which one it is, and see how much I need, thanks a lot for the input!
(I wasn't aware just increasing the cpu multiplier meant other stuff might need more volts too)
usually it doesnt. but sometimes the NB, or ram needs a boost. you have a bit of ram at a high speed.
the other error code did make mention of a possible driver error. I see something about the memory making a dump to the hard disk. which if it was more the the disk could take(capacity), or the raid setup, im not sure.
