Re: Coffee Lake Gaming Build

Yeah, I don't know to keep the memory until I get a Z370, maybe the memory is bad IDK. I am going to have to return it.

My system is old by today upgrade standards, the 5960X is 2 gens behind but, if you see it in reviews remember they are being ran at the default 3.3GHz speed. The 5960X will run 4.3-4.5GHz most assuredly and temps reach the low 80's at 4.3GHz on a 8-core. Scores are much higher but no wild temps. Solid Xeon CPU with giant soldered heat spreader and no iGPU. Even though it does not have the new improved load OCing Turbo 3 thingy going for it, it still is more than what I need and it is extremely dependable. I am already running at 1.2V VDDR and quad-channel 2400MHz CL12. At stock, all my cores run at 3.5GHz, no OC at all and all auto-voltage. I still plan on WC my video card so the CPU will get the treatment as well. I might end up running it at 4.5GHz on a custom WC, I still run core usage so I am only OC'd under load.

Check this out, it is funny.

Re: Coffee Lake Gaming Build

BTW, I doubt the RAM is bad. It is just not supported by this mobo BIOS. But, I cannot take that chance and plan on returning it. I am pretty sure I am giving up on my upgrade to Z370. I really don't want to lose my Intel SSD or the rest of this setup.

Check out running you video card at 8x compared to 16x no difference really....just like the ram video....

I have at least 40 PCI lanes on this thing. I could do quad SLI if I wanted. Check out my other thread what I found for this board.

So, it has me rethinking my whole build. Not sure what I am going to do at this point but I will most likely go ahead with the Z370 Formula.
Sandog, how were you testing the RAM? In your current board?

Re: Coffee Lake Gaming Build

Stock, XMP, Auto, and manually setting voltage to 1.35V When in XMP and 1.35V did not occur, I knew my mobo was not supporting this RAM. I did two sticks in C1 & D1 just like the manual showed for two sticks. Then I took one out and left one in like the manual showed for 1 stick usage. Then I swapped sticks. Nothing, Nothing, Nothing. It was a long process. After entering BIOS it would just shut down, no screen. I used reset CMOS, MEM OK button and all. It no worky on this board. This is a good example of reading your mobo's QVL list. It is not that it doesn't support DDR4 2666, it is that is doesn't support this particular set of sticks with new Hynix memory I believe.

Yeah, it wasn't with a Z370.

Couldnt have been Z370! Unless you already have received a 8700K!

I'm surprised that RAM failed. I think RAM is the most sensitive component after the main board. Always seems to need a lot of research and luck to get the right combination.

I think that ASUS has a pass list. Unless ASUS has tested the RAM and knows it's SPD values it will not be posted on the BIOS table. This RAM is completely new. Just got an RMA tonight and am shipping it off.

I know ASUS has its QVL programme, but do you mean they will stop the POST if the memory details are not found by the BIOS? i didnt know that!

Flip, but if the modules conform to JEDEC then I expect I should be able to run them on my own initiative. I better not swap out the DDR on my current rig for any new ones cos the BIOS is ancient.

Re: Coffee Lake Gaming Build

I'm surprised it wouldn't run on auto without xmp at whatever the motherboard stock ram speed is and volts?

Re: Coffee Lake Gaming Build

Update on build.

Sent RAM back, will buy again when I am ready with the mobo and CPU.

Power supply cables shipped.

Received my XSPC 280 radiator today. I have had many a radiator and this is one of the best. Cannot tell much from the core part but the frame, paint job, and inlets are all the best I've seen. The paint is a hard coat, the metal is very thick so it has some threads in the screw holes. I took a pic to show the 1/4" core recess on both side so you don't have to worry about long fan screws. The end caps are screwed on and the inlets are removable and are black chrome, my favorite. It wil take up the available height in my case but it is going to look good. The radiator will seat nicely against my case and allow you to see the whole thickness of the radiator. It is going to look good IMO, very good.

I have a world beater pump/reservoir planned as well. I chose a reservoir with a height that will allow me to fill it from the top. Going to be easy to maintain and very quiet. No pump control or noise to worry about. I will have the largest volume fluid loop I have ever had.

More news to come and enjoy the pics.
