There is no guarantee that you can run RAM faster then the listed supported speed for the i7 980X or i7 950 and this is more so true when you have all slots filled.
Thanks PeterUK, BUT
DX58SO2 support 1600+ memory on XMP profile which is showing in BIOS but when I select it it keeps rebooting itself and and shoing post error.
Its not the processor it the Motherboard which is not working as they said.
The other issue is I am unable to install windows on my SSD if it is connected to Intel controller!!! only working on Marvell controller which I do not want to use.
And I have to enable it because I got about 8 SATA devices 6 HDD, 1 SSD and 1 Blu-Ray Drive.
Anyone having same problem?
Any sugges.... pls
Have you downloaded Performance Tuning guide ??
Does the memory support an XMP verson 1.2. If not than you need to get different memory.
For memory speed higher than 1600Mhz, you need XMP profiles with verson 1.2 for the DX58SO2.
I bought this memory http://www.corsair.com/memory-3/dominator/dominator-gt2/cmt6gx3m3a2000c8.html and I am unable to find which XMP profile this memory is... any one knows anything?
Or which Corsair Dominator is XMP profile 1.2 so I can replace it with them.
PLS let me know.
What voltage are you tring to run this RAM at . 1.5 or 1.65. If you have it at 1.65 turn it down to 1.5 Because thats what the board is rated for. You can't always trust those XMP Profiles.
hi I want to buy the motherboard DX58SO2 and I wonder if this model of RAM iscompatible with the motherboard.
the RAM model is "F3-16000CL6T-6GBPID" Brand G. SKILL
I put the link here to look at the epecificaciones
I would also like to know which are the XMP profiles
Did you see the Intel board on GSkil's list , NO. Be careful use Ram that is only on Intel's approved list. Those boards you see on the GSkil web site are for gamers and don't carry the sane specs as a Intel board.
I have a DX58so2 with a Crucial C300 SSD.
I've been having lot's of problems with BSOD's and "no bootable media" messages also.
The Marvell 88SE91xx driver is in the MB BIOS so I don't knoe if you can get rid of it.
MS WIN 7 64bit reports that a SCSI driver dated 2006 is being used in device manager. D'oh!
running a HD benchmark program reports that the Marvell driver is being used.
Nobody at Crucial, Intel, or Microsoft can tell me the same story.
I'm read somewhere that the Marvell driver switches off and hands the SSD over to the OS at some point during bootup. Who knows!
I've spent countless hours on tech support calls and fiddling with different SATA cables etc. but the system is still not reliable.
My best guess is,,,,,,
1) The 6GB/s stuff is just not polished yet.
2) Drivers for SSD's are not polished yet.
3) This MB is a P.O.S. (I've had other issues with it also.)
4) It's absolutely critical that the highest quality cables you can find be used. I'm not warm and fuzzy about the ones that ship with the MB.
My humble advice,,,,
Try to get the thing working reliably with JUST the SSD before you waste your time trying to olverclock anything or hook up multiple HD's.
If you have the BIOS set to AHCI , The Marvell drivers should not be a issue unless you are tring to run a RAID set-up. The SATA Driver should be 220.127.116.114 or higher. You should not use RAM at or above 1.65 volts you could damage the CPU.
Think I kinda got off the original question,, was just chiming in.
Couldn't figure out how to verify SATA driver version 18.104.22.1684.
Can you tell me where to get that?
I'm going to post a new message titled "Intel DX58so2 / Crucial SSD / BSOD's" with more complete reference.
Thanks so much for your time.
Go to control panel open device manager ,look at IDE/ATA controller left/right check prop. go to driver and it will show 22.214.171.1244 , if you have the right one .
Hi Thanks again Robert.
See the attached screenshot.
Went thru all the devices and did the "update driver" routine but the system said I had the latest driver on every one.
Except for the "Marvell 91xx SATA 6G Controller,, when I hit "update driver" it added an additional item called RAID,, etc. I deleted it though cause I don't have an RAID stuff on this system.
Oh, also notice that device manager thinks my Crucial C300 SSD is SCSI.
Not sure what's up with that either.
