Hello,i started up my new builded rig asus rog crosshair viii dark hero mobo

now i changed the voltage on the memory to 1.50v and higher but wont boot so i dont know the soc voltage,
i tried 1.1v but no go??? help would be great...thx in advance
Overclocking or not is your choice. You don't get a significant increase from memory when doing so, however. So it's up to you. Also, you seem to have 4 sticks and 64GB, so you won't get too far overclocking anyway. If it was me, I wouldn't bother... but if you want to, we're here to help!

That said, this is, again, confusing, lol. So, you randomly raised the voltage (why??), but did you raise the memory clocks or lower the timings? I little more info would be incredibly helpful. But keep in mind you won't get too far with all four slots populated. If you really want to push the memory, I'd go 2x16GB. Most people don't need more than 32GB.... do you?

Are you currently getting 3600 cl16 with 4x16GB sticks? If so, you should be very happy with that.

How about posting a CPUz screen shot of the Memory and SPD tabs.
Hello i oc the ram to 3800mh 1719038527238.png z and multiplier from cpu is x39 but in cpuz the multiplier bounces from 36 to 46???

what the heck is wrong???

I would strongly take the advice and remove two sticks of RAM. Much less frustration and much better overclocks. We all assumed four is better than two as beginners.
i want the cpu at is best settings for benchmarking,so how do i set it up?
