rjbarker Posted October 6, 2010 Share Posted October 6, 2010 Hey Yellow beard.....glad to see your still around!! You helped me out a couple of years back with a HX 1kW RMA related to an Evga X58 Cold boot issue.' Anyhow, been OC'ing n testing/stability my 908X for the past week and though I'd replace my "older" 12Gb Dominator C8 1600 Mhz with some newer GT's C8 2000 mhz.... I had no intention og trying to run em at 2000 Mhz...too much strain on my IMC, but really wanted to "stabiize" my 4.1 OC with these running at 1866 Mhz.. Problem is could not for the life of me even get to Post with 1866..133 QPI x 31 RAM at 2:14....8-8-8-24 88 1T...tried 2T no go...XMP Profiles don't make sense at all on this Kit for my Gulftown...huh... now I read on the Spec Sheet (here on Corsair) that they require QPI 1.6v...? What...are we talking the same language, as in QPI and vTT? my Classy 759 Board sets vTT (I'm assuming QPI / vtt) to 1.2v by default....so would it be fair to say that increasing to +125mv or 1.325v (1.4v under load) simply wasn't enough "poop" to Post? I took em out and put em back in the box and have reinstalled my 12GB older 1600 Doms .... Any thoughts, I'm curious as the Intel Voltage limits for 980X are 1.4v for both vCore and vtt.....1.6v seems crazy?! Even 1.5v is quite high... Any thoughts...
