Asus Rampage III Formula & CMP12GX3M3A1600C9 Working at 1600mhz!


Recommended Posts

Just wanted to share something I just found with the combination

of the Asus Rampage III Formula Motherboard & Corsairs CMP12GX3M3A1600C9

12GB Kit.


Up until today I've had it running at manual timing of 1333Mhz 8-8-8-24-CR1

as the XMP timings for 1600Mhz would make the board only see 8GB or sometimes

4GB, then I saw in a forum somewhere (the Asus forums i think) they just

set the Row Refresh Cycle Time or tRFC to 88, i did likewise after enabling the

XMP settings, the default tRFC was 72, now the board see's all 12gb and I ran

15 passes of intel burn test with success!!


More testing is needed but this might be something worth trying

with all the issues others are having with large memory kits

and being unable to run at 1600mhz.


I did try as others suggested upping the QPI voltage and other tweaks

but none worked, so just apply the XMP setting and upping the tRFC

to 88 or higher. :laughing:
