  1. Switch to the 2083 socket otherwise you won’t have the voltages you need for Uncore and memories.
  2. Voltages for Uncore.In the CPU Advanced Voltages when you have switched to the 2083 socket you will see some extra voltages. VL1 to VL6. You only have to change VL4, VL5 and VL6 as below.

    The voltage you have to change to get higher uncore is mostly the VL6. Almost all the CPUs can do 1.45V, most of the CPUs can do 1.5V but some CPUs can do even higher Voltage. If the CPU can do high VL6 then probably it can do and high Uncore but not all the times. A CPU we have here can do 4.8GHz with 1.45V on the VL6. It depends on the CPU. In the OS through GTL all you have to do is to raise the VRING to 1.45V-1.5V in able to get high Uncore.
  3. RTLs.You can change the RTLs but not manually only changing the IOLs manually.IOLs to 1 will bring the RTLs all the way down to what the board is capable of until now. You need to change the IOLs at every channel. Set the option at manual mode and change the primary and secondary timings only for channel A and then change the IOLs to each channel manually.
  4. TCWL. For now only TCWL 10. TCWL 9 will give you 8A code at least on air. On LN2 you can go lower.
  5. Use both 8pin and 4pin cables for CPU Power otherwise with heavy load the system maybe will be shutting down.
  6. You don’t need extremely high VSA and VDIMM. VSA between +0.25-0.35V should be enough to drive the mems high. +0.25-+0.3V should max your mems on most cases. VDIMM 1.55-1.65V is ok. I was able to do even C11 with 1.6V.
  7. Few times you will see codes like 72, 74, 50, 51, 60, 8A. Try to press the reset button few times. There’re times that doing it it passes the training. Especially when you change the RTLs and you get 8A try it for sure.
  8. X99 MemTweak. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/18296979/MemoryTweak-X99%20B14.0922.1.rar. I will update you with the GTL when it’s ready. For now you can change almost everything from XTU.
  9. Please be careful! The VLs can affect your CPU cold bug so make sure that when you change you don’t hit the cold bug earlier than before. If you have this problem try higher or lower VL3 (usually higher helps). If VL3 doesn’t fix your problem then try the same for VL6. Also, different bclk affects the cold bug too, so try this as well.
  10. Make sure that you’re using proper insulation around the memories area and also put some paper towel around the PCH cooler. The way that worked best for us was a layer of plastidip, then a layer of Vaseline and paper towel.
  11. Always save a profile before you save and exit cause most of the times the only way to go back is the CMOS button.
  12. For memory voltage we used up to 1.9V on single sided DIMMS on LN2 without a problem. But it doesn’t mean that all the DIMMS can handle it so be careful in case you don’t want to degrade or kill your memories. Dino was benching with 1.8V without any issue.
