    Default Overclock X99 Fatality, I7-5930K, G-SKILL-3000 - possible?

    Hi,

    I can't seem to be able to overclock with the X99 Fatality board. As soon as I play with the settings; even the built-in ones, I get an unstable system.

    As a starting point, I tried to overclock to 4.0; no luck. Memory works like a charm on XP SP2 settings.


    Anyone has had better luck with a similar setup?

    I have an
    X99X Killer fatality, I7 -5920K, Corsair 2666 Vengeance - 16GB. I am running at 4.2 without problems. I did run 4.4 but was unsure of stability and need to try again. I have had difficulty trying to OC the ram however.

    Hi exracer1,

    Glad to hear that you are able to overclock. It means my patience ran out before I was able to.

    To say you haven't had any luck with the RAM. If you are keeping CPU at stock speed, can you overclock? I was able to run at faster with underclocked memory (if I can say underclock; let's say off of the XP SP2 settings).

    Tweaktown has a new article in the guides especially written for me (let's just say that timing is just great). I'll try some things out when I have a few minutes.


    Thanks for the feedback,

    tcn.

    Hi tcn,

    I took your suggestion and disabled the cpu boost, then set to XMP 2 which is just a slight boost from 2666Mhz to 2800Mhz. It wouldn't even boot. I went back to XMP 1 which is stock @ 2666Mhz and set the CPU to 4.2. It seems stable so far.

    Hi,

    Found that the issue is that I can't run the memory at XMP 2.0. I boosted the voltage to 1.4 and couldn't get it to run. Now, is it the motherboard that won't do its job right or the memory modules?

    @extracer: I can overclock the CPU at stock memory speed. Since the XMP 2.0 seems to be an issue with you also, I am beginning to be suspicious about the motherboard.....

    Hi,

    My guess is that we need a bios update. Other people are able to run the same memory that I have in XMP 2 option 2 on other boards. I wish ASRock would chime in.

    Hi,

    same Problems here.
    Asrock X99X Killer, 5930K and G.Skill 2800.
    Cant boot the System with CPU at Stock and RAM according XMP 2 settings.
    Even with increased DRAM Voltage to 1.35 V and loose timimgs, no Boot.
    I am running the System now at 4.2 Ghz and the RAM at 2666 and 1.25 V.
    Seems to be stable after 2 hours of testing with prime95 and Memtest.
    However, there is something wrong with the Board. We probably need a new BIOS.
    Did anyone try the BetaBios 1.14?

    Regards,
    Royblacky

    Hi,
    I’m Davis from ASRock HQ TSD.

    This model supports DDR4 3000+(OC)*/2933+(OC)/2800(OC)/2400(OC)/2133/1866/1600/1333/1066 non-ECC, un-buffered memory.
    DRAM frequency DDR4-3000 belongs to O.C mode.
    The O.C. mode depends on the whole system configurations, the quality of CPU/Memory modules and other parameters/settings, so we couldn’t guarantee it.
    For DDR4-3000, our performance team tested some DRAM modules on this platform, we recommend users to refer the memory support list for choosing memory.
    Memory Support List: ASRock > Fatal1ty X99X Killer

    Thank you very much!

    Hi,

    Just a question on pwer supply; how much power should I expect from the X99-Fatal1ty, 16G RAM, i7-5930K, headless? I'm starting to think that I might have been too conservative on the supply.

    @Davis, the memory I chose is in the list of modules that passed ASRock's approval for overclock; I always check the lists first.

    I can't overclock to anything and be stable....... I thought I was stable; but I'm not.

    I have a correction to make to that; I am stable IF prime runs in the CPU; if I blend the test with DDR, it crashes immediately if CPU is not stock. There is definitively something with the RAM; either I must increase a voltage I didn't or the motherboard is not right.

    Another edit, I played with the system agent and increased stability of the DDR; playing with it might solve the issue.

    Hi,

    Finally got most of it; I had to crank the System Agent voltage to quite high actually..... 0.47V ...... I am water cooled, and temps are ..... okay ..... until afetr a while in prime95.

    The temperatures are stable under 70 degrees for something like 10 minutes then; for no apparent reason, temperatures are rising suddently (like sudden jump; not a constant climb to) to the high 80s and getting to the 90s (nope, not years here :P).

    I have absolutely no clue why. When temperatures are getting too hot, the throttle beggins, I can hear the supply tic each time power drops. This is where I am wondering if 400W for a headless I7-5930K system is enough...... I calculated 140W for CPU and another 40 to 60W for the rest .... Should be enough no? (It's an 80+ platinum rated supply)
