    Default Painfully Slow Net Speeds on Z77 OC Formula

    Has anyone experienced unusually slow net speeds on the OC Formula? I'm getting around 59kb/s downloads on different sources, when I should be downloading at 1-2mb/s. I have XFast Lan installed as well as LAN drivers, unfortunately something is still seriously wrong. Any suggestions?

    Instead of making a new thread I figured I'd post this here as well. The other problem I'm having is that I can't get the multiplier past 3.6. Turbo mode won't even activate when in-game it just sits at a steady 3.6 the entire time despite trying to clock it manually and loading the profiles.

    My setup:

    i7 2700k
    750w PSU
    1600 8GB - I believe they're Ripjaws

    Unfortunately I don't know the answer to most of those questions. But I can say that all internet hardware has remained the same, yet my old board didn't have these issues. Bios I'm running is 1.0.

    Currently, I'm a bit more worried over the oc issues though.

    Thanks

    Given the lack of hardware information, at best general suggestions is all that can be provided. Are you using the integrated graphics on the CPU, or a separate video card? Gaming may not cause a heavy load on the CPU, that's what the graphics system is for, but again, what graphics system?

    What are you using to monitor the CPU speed? What setting for the CPU have you adjusted manually?

    I have the RipJaws X Series, 1600mhz 2x4GB. Which turns out isn't on the supported memory list although a lot of similar kits are.
    Videocard is the GTX 580


    After updating the bios to 1.4 I've since been able to get my OC's to take within Windows, however it hasn't been stable while gaming. A mild 4.1 OC is causing blue screens. I've tried the preloaded profiles, I've also tried adjusting manually, inputting my rated ram settings manually (which take), and also an XMP 1.2 profile. All of which didn't produce stable results. I'm guessing it's probably the ram, or is there some way to get this kit stable?

    If the memory is not in the support list, it is pure luck if it works. To get the memory stable, set everything to Auto, no XMP. Yes it will be slower, hopefully no lower than 1333, but you just want to test for no BSODs. You won't lose much if any performance with the memory running a bit slower.

    If the preloaded OC profiles adjust the memory, just set them back to Auto, that will not affect the CPU OC at all. Also, if those OC profiles are changing the BCLK from 100, that is a main cause of BSODs.

    Thanks for the feedback. I've been playing around with all sorts of different settings today and all seem to be the same. Previously auto DRAM settings had it clocked to 1600mhz, but higher timings. I've tried running that and would eventually get BSOD. I've tried with the correct settings, same thing. I then tried to down clock the ram to 1333 with no luck there either.

    I can run stable at 4.0, but anything past 4.0 will crash on me. That's with multiplier adjustments, BCLK remaining default.

    With it being capable of hitting 4.0 with the ram set to its correct settings (1600mhz 1.5v 9-9-9-24), is it still a sure thing that it's the ram and not the motherboard or chip? I'd hate to buy new ram and still experience the same thing.
