My new M5A99FX PRO R2.0 has been a problem. Turns out the RAM was not configured properly.

AMD overdrive fixed that I hope by allowing me to edit the timing as needed

BIOS is set to automatic, so much for that idea

So the Micron DDR3-1333 2048 MB sticks are being fired

In with DDR3-2133 4096 MB sticks in a bid to perk up the CPU as best I can

I hope the Phenom II can take advantage of the memory speed

Your going to have to really OC the HT ref clock to get the ram to run at 2133 with the 965.

I chose that speed so that I would have maximum headroom for overclocking.

G.SKILL RipjawsX F3-17000CL11D-8GBXL 8GB 2X4GB DDR3-2133 CL11-11-11-30 1.5V Memory Kit (Part#: F3-17000CL11D-8GBXL)

This is not the best RAM out there but I am hoping it will do the job.

while i await the ram, i decided to abuse this micron memory and overvolted it to 1.6 and cranked it up to ddr3-1600

i had to back off the timing to 10-10-10-25 to boot windows

amd overdrive then got me 3.9 GHz on the factory fan, not bad at all

I might be able to get 4 GHz with a base clock boost

This board makes my CPU run well, definitely a worthwhile acqusition

 

Digging around in the BIOS I ran across more functionality that suggested I might be able to better use that new RAM at faster speeds and possibly get my CPU running even faster

Still, when it comes to memory brands, I always go G.Skill. Guess it's how you define best.

I have had lots of stability prblems with this Micron memory. I have had to use AMD Overdrive to adjust the timings several times to be able to keep the machine from BSOD on me.

 

now running at ddr3-1333 10-10-10-26

hope I do not have to adjust it more

 

 

DIMM # 1

SMBus address 0x50

Memory type DDR3

Module format UDIMM

Manufacturer (ID) Micron Technology (2C00000000000000)

Size 2048 MBytes

Max bandwidth PC3-10700 (667 MHz)

Part number V01D3LF2GB18818813

Manufacturing date Week 10/Year 11

Number of banks 8

Nominal Voltage 1.50 Volts

EPP no

XMP no

JEDEC timings table CL-tRCD-tRP-tRAS-tRC @ frequency

JEDEC #1 5.0-5-5-14-19 @ 380 MHz

JEDEC #2 6.0-6-6-17-23 @ 457 MHz

JEDEC #3 7.0-7-7-20-27 @ 533 MHz

JEDEC #4 8.0-8-8-22-30 @ 609 MHz

JEDEC #5 9.0-9-9-25-34 @ 685 MHz

JEDEC #6 10.0-10-10-28-38 @ 761 MHz

 

After a few more tests, 10-10-10-28 is now being tested, using JEDEC 6 table

the default in the BIOS cannot do that

it BSODs with default automatic settings

Got the new RAM and reset the BIOS and no BSOD problems

The heat spreaders probably will be helpful given the higher voltages these sticks like.

Given the rig is stable, I think I will grab 2 more next week. As long as the defaults work and are stable then I can get back to overclocking.
