Hi, I use xms3 1600MHz Memory corsair 8gb (4 * 2). I'm having several problems with this memory. Dual Chanel does not work. "2E" I get an error message. Which can work seamlessly with DZ8BC 1600 mhz memory?
The system is as follows:
CPU: I7 2700K
Mobo: DZ8BC (bios version 037)
VGA: Asus GTX570
Audio Card: Sound Blaster Creaive 3d recon
TV tuner: Asus my cinema ps2/100
PSU: Corsair 650W enhaust
SSD: Mach Extreme fusion
Case: Corsair R500
(Corsair Memory has been tested to another board, absolutely no problems.)
You can only downgrade to 035 or 036. The problem now is that all these "ivy bridge" BIOSes are complete junk.
You wont get your memory to work perfectly before Intel releases a proper BIOS for this forsaken board.
There is a very long thread here called "Still no fixed BIOS for DZ68BC". You can find what kind of memory configuration problems people are having with this setup.
I have done some work with my test bench regarding DZ68BC:
With following BIOS 035,036 and 037.
All stability / configuration problems seems to be RAM related.
I ran several tests with different configs.
Stability issues occured only with higher speeds than 1333MHZ. I had no problems to raise CPU clocks. If I loaded XMP profiles and ran
memory demanding tests -> BSOD/errors.
Intel Management Engine seems to be out of order as well.
Hey guyz! so, i had the same problem with ma MB, i installed BIOS version 39, but when i choose the XMP 1600 ram profile the bios dosnt initiate... so i downgraded to 37 and had no problems anymore! u can download the .EXE file v.37 and just execute, and it will install the v37 and u will be able to use ur 1600mhz memories on 1600!!!! cheers
