hi everyone,

i was wondering if someone could help me out.

i have Corsair DOMINATOR-GT 2000MHz (CMT6GX3M3A2000C8) CAS 8-9-8-24. Yesterday i downloaded CPUID and i shows my current ram is Runing at 667Mhz at CAS 8-9-8-24.

Can anyone please help me out to optimise the ram performance to its maximum level?

thank you,
Amrit

Hey, There is one easy way to do that, boot to your BIOS set up. In the section "Extreme Tweaker", look for "Ai overclocker Tuner", change its value to "XMP", save and exit. Note: your computer may be shut up at this time, don't worry about it, go to cut the power of your power supply and then re-power it again, you will be able to re-start your computer now(if your computer did not shut up after you save the setting, DO NOT do this.) OK! enjoy your 2000 RAM

Amrit, please let us know if this works for you. Typically the ASUS implementation of XMP is very good.

Can someone please check their Bios and see if the actual ICH PCIE Voltage is being shown and not only the adjustment for the voltage? Thanks much :)

I'd just like to second this, from my limited experience (one ASUS motherboard, one set of Corsair RAM). Selecting XMP worked great for me - it loaded the quoted XMP specs for my memory ( see sig) and ran them just fine.

Actually, XMP is not the best choice. Because it disable the turbo boost technology. However, if you are extreme over-clocker please ignore this. But for that normal people, there is a better choice; that is set the "Ai overclock Tuner" to manual, you will be able to reference speed below, for the case DDRIII2000, you can change 133 to 143; you will be able to adjust the DRAM speed to 2006 Mhz. In this case, you keep the turbo boost technology and memory speed. Please disable turbo power limit, your CPU (it is the case of intel 980x) will can hit 3.88-4.2Ghz when turbo boost is actived. When the CPU is idle, it will running on around 1.6Ghz. This scheme can give a nice performance and also can give your CPU a long lifespan. (you can install intel turbo boost monitor to see this, be sure enable the CPU option in BIOS to let it can set idle state, and DO NOT forget to adjust the Memory voltage and timing in your BIOS since the XMP option is offline). To enjoy this, I suggest you plug in both CPU power connector in your main board to keep the range of turbo boost. In the extreme case, it can hit 4.2Ghz automatically. (I saw this when I used a stability burnIn software.) By the way, it is very stable with my 980x stock air cooling. But if you want set a very high multiplier, please ignore this.

Well, Did I miss something here? I just saw mine, I got actual reading there. It should shows a number before the adjustment option, that number is actual reading.

He is talking about the existance of an option named "ICH PCIE Voltage" where is only allow you to set the voltage without any ways to check the actual reading.  I've checked with my Asus contact, and can confirm that's how the board was designed in the first place, meaning that his board should be fine.

Check if we are talking about the same item.
The display of "IOH PCIE Voltage" is available, while the "ICH PCIE Voltage" is not.
