Do you mean taking a screenshot to send the company where I bought the RAM?
Thank you for the advise.
Thank you for your time and advise.
@mark5916 So, I did some testing, and whether I use 8, 4, or 2 memory sticks, the max speed I can get out of it is 2933 (stable). Using any other speed, it won't boot or Blue Screen the device.
Oh, and before, when I used 4 sticks, they're in the wrong slots. My mistake.
Any other ideas to get it work at 3200?
Does lowering the ram voltage help? or changing some other BIOS settings?
Is this a memory kit problem?
Should I return the kit?
I installed the RAM again, and it's been working OK, but only at 2933, at 3066 it works, but for some reason, Task Manager doesn't show info, such as speed, slots used, form factor,
and hardware reserved.
I done a basic Windows memory test, 1 pass, at 2933, and the memory passed the test without errors.
The kit is rated for 1.35v, and it's what the BIOS is showing right now.
Yesterday, I took the BIOS battery out of the PC, and reset the BIOS settings, but I'm still dealing with the same issues trying to run it at 3200.
My older RAM, 32GB kit, 4 x 8GB, were rated at 3200, and they worked at 3200.
Any other suggestions?
If I can't get the memory to run Windows 10 at 3200, does it mean that the memory kit has problems?
I have to test the 4 sticks again.
As it turned out, the previous kit I had and put them in the wrong slots, so there's a chance when I was trying the 4 sticks from the new kit i put them wrong too.
Just a quick update, I did the Windows memory test at 2933, just a basic test, 1 pass because I don't any more time today, and test showed no problems.
Yes, the mobo is using the latest BIOS update. Actually, I updated the BIOS right after I started noticing issues.
No, I remembered today about that, I'm going to try it.
Only for 8 sticks. With 4 I never got the computer to boot.
Yes, installed 4 sticks, and then I tried the other 4. before that I even tried to mixing all the sticks and to make sure they were reseating.
Yes, I installed the sticks like the manual said. I've been running 32GB 4 x 8GB for the past year, so I use the slots like my previous configuration to install the 128GB.
Right now I'm writing from that PC, but using the older 32GB kit.
The memory problem with the test feature on Windows, I believe so, but I'll double-check again.
Also, I have tried using just 4 memory sticks, and computer won't even boot.
Also, I wanted to point out that I have tried using only 4 memory sticks, and computer won't even boot, so I couldn't get to BIOS to change speeds.
Thanks for the advise, actually, I have a second gen Threadripper 2950x.
I'll try it again, but I run so many tests, that I believe it'll be same, Windows 10 will boot, but the memory test will show the hardware problem found message.
Thanks for the reply. I decided to get the 3200 kit.
Any reason when it wouldn't run at 3600 with all the 8 sticks?
Out of curiosity, what formula did you use?
Thanks for the reply.
In this case, the money isn't an issue, I just want to make sure the extra $100 is worth the spending.
Well, one of the reasons for the upgrade is that I work with a bunch of virtual machines at the same time and I need them to be responsive. I think this will be most intensive workload. Other than that, I'll be doing some video rendering and a lot of apps running at the same time.
Thanks for the reply.
Thank for taking the time and answering the questions.
At this time, it's going to be 1 to 3 simultaneous 1080p streams, but if I'll be spending this kind of money, I want it to be capable of at least 2 simultaneous 4k streaming.
Could you provide a link? I'm still stumbling in those pages that recommend Intel only. Thanks,
Thank you for the answer!
Thanks for the clarification.
I'm planning to build a FreeNAS build, I'd like to use AMD, but FreeNAS recommends Inte. How did you decide to go AMD? How stable is the NAS? Also, planning to run Plex, can it handle at least 2 video transcoding at the same time (I mean two people streaming different movies to different devices at the same time)?Thanks,
How did you decide to go AMD? Isn't Intel the CPU of choice for FreeNAS? How stable is the NAS?
Oh, there's no need for graphics card for transcoding video?
Do the Xeon CPUs run hot? I'm trying to build a quiet box, because I'll be in office.
I'm budgeting $1700 tops, mostly because I want at least 4 10TB drives.
As far as I can tell from the X399 ASRock Taichi motherboard the CPU_FAN1 is rated for 1 AMP and the Noctua fans are rated max current of 0,14 AMP.
From the mobo manual: "The CPU Fan Connector supports the CPU fan of maximum
1A (12W) fan power. "
Thanks I bought the ASRock! :)
I'll using an extra PCIE, but it seems like a solution.
Quick question: Why did you pick the Asrock motherboard against other brands?
Looking into this mobo.
Thank you for the recommendation and taking the time.
Phanteks Evolv X
Apparently the team fixed the issue. Thanks for taking action.
Sure, but the warning can be also misleading. It should have an incompatible message with a note to check with manufacturer for possible BIOS update that makes it compatible, because TR4 II is a drop-in upgrade and all motherboards that were released for the Gen1 will have this message, when they're actually compatible.
Thanks for reply. I've been wanting to know for sure for a long time (although it was obvious that virtualization is supported).
PS: If you have the chance to play around with the trial version of VMware let know me how it works. :)
Yes, I read that too, I don't like when companies don't share more specific details. I also watched an interview that the gen 1 and gen 2 will coexist together for a while, but some SKUs will be removed, but that's about it, again no specifics.
Thanks, actually, that's what I was trying to find out, because you never know...
Appreciate the reply.
Did you have any issues running VMs? Which solution are you using for virtualization?
Also, I noticed that you're using at least 3 27-inch monitors, do you actually need the 2 video cards or one is enough for 3 monitors (not for gaming)?
have you already try running VMs? If so, are you using vmware workstation or virtualbox?
Cool build. I'm planning to go with a similar build, I need an upgrade to run a bunch virtual machines. Have you already tried to run VMs? If so, are you using Vmware or Virtualbox? I use vmware and I need to make sure it will run before I spend the money.
Thank you very much for the input.
Just out of curiosity, when an opportunity number is too high?
OPP protection is new to me, what do I need to look for? Can you give me an example? Thanks,
