reporting back after some serious headhaches to figure out what was wrong on my 1st attenmpt (page 6)....
first, I have to say I'm using only one 12Gb tri channel kit for the moment, will modify my sig accordingly asap ;)
next... as I'm quite new to Intel (changed my quite old opteron setup like 2 months ago) and left many things on [Auto] in setup, except memory that was set to XMP (because it was the only workaround I found for my random disapearing ram, now I know that the problem is SPD and the built-in command rate setting... must use 2T to solve this problem)
ok, so after a few hours of testing, I'm reporting back with quite a good news:
[see post #250]
this needs more tweaking to hit the 80+ Gflops, but I'm on my way (will try to tweak uncore to see if it helps)
BTW, this board is weird, I'm not able to go 2:14-16 ram ratio (I know the ram is capable of 2000MHz+ @ 1.65v), cpu-z and memtest86+ always report 2:12... Must add that auto setting on QPI link will always set it to the minimum, I set it to 6.x manually now....
