Default Asus Rampage II Gene at MADSHRIMPS

Board just arrived this afternoon, haven't had the time to make any pictures yet (but still to follow), because I wanted to quick-test the board for it's overclockability.

200/2000 doesn't work, as with most motherboards, straight out-of-the-box so more tweaking is necessary.

NOTE: Vqpi swings between 1.4 and 1.45 when set at 1.4v. Bios problem or board problem or maybe something else?

Vqpi isn't bios-related, so probably board-related, which isn't good.

I'm in need of 1.5v (bios) to run Uncore at 4GHz 32M stable, which is about 0.1v more than I need on the DFI. Quite a significant difference!

Triple channel 1GHz CL7 with 1.65v seems véry unstable: 2M runs fluently, but crashes already at 4M loop1. In single/dual channel, I don't notice too much issue

Yes, briefly, but no improvement on the stability.

I was able to run 32M with triple channel just a few minutes ago, but after reboot, same 4M issue

After some tweaking, I seem to have gotten the same level of stability again: 32M ran perfectly. For future reference, these are the settings I used and that were stable:

So messing with the ref volts on Channel C did the trick ? Never messed with those before, it seems you are never too old to learn

Are those settings Hyperpi 32M stable ?

I don't know what fixes the issue, because after a reboot, the 32M stable settings are again 4M unstable. I presume it's some kind of timing I set to AUTO that has to be configured right

Found the setting that's making my system stable:

Back-to-back CAS delay: 12

All other tested settings are back to auto
