TR3X6G2000C7GTF on MSI Eclipse

Hi,

 

I just bought a TR3X6G2000C7GTF and I cant seem to run it at 1866 and above.

I can only be stable at 1600 CL9(even CL8 at 1600 not stable). What bios settings do I need to set? If I set it to 1866, 7-8-7-20, dram at 1.65, I cant POST. Also do I need to bump the QPI voltage really high? For a 965, its 1.22, so i need to set at least +0.38? Is it safe as its in the red zone already(eclipse only has increments and not actual qpi voltage so i can only estimate). Please help.

I am sorry but that may be the BIOS with that MB, we saw the same results when we tested it. The top seemed to be about DDR1700-1800. I would wait for the next BIOS version and see what happens also do you have the latest BIOS?

Thanks for the reply.

 

Yes, I have the latest bios 1.7b1.

 

Any recommended settings to run it at around 1700-1800?

Or any board you can recommend that can handle this beast with ease?

Thinking of ditching this for a new one when I received this reply from MSI support. They told me to update to the latest bios and when it didnt work, they replied with this:

 

"Eclipse SLI motherboard supports six unbuffered DIMM of 1.5 Volt DDR3 800/1066/1333*/1600* (OC) SDRAM, 24GB Max. But your Corsair Dominator GT TR3X6G2000C7GTF is over spec., it can't get 7-8-7-20 2000MHz at 1.65v. Eclipse SLI can't support memory of 1866 and above."

I would suspect they will run at Cas 6 or 7 @ DDR1600 1.65 Volts with out breaking a sweat, try that and then work your way up from there.

 

I tried Cas 8 (8-8-8-24) first but get BSOD. Do I need to bump the QPI voltage also even if its DDR1600? I left it at +0.15.

Yes the memory Voltage will need to be 1.65 Volts and the QPI will have to be at about 1.5 -1.7 Volts to get it to run tighter timings.

 

Not sure what happened but after trying to run 1600 CAS 8 at 1.65v QPI, I cant even POST. Even after clearing CMOS, D-Led just shows CPU INI. I just hope my 965 didnt get fried. Brought it to the shop I bought it from and they are testing if its the mobo or the CPU.
