    3600X and RTX 2070 Super build

    I have more or less the same build you are trying to get. Zero problem here with the 3600C16 with the B450 Carbon AC board, even though they are harder to run double sized 16 x 2 GB modules.

    ASUS Radeon RX 5700 XT STRIX OC

    OCUK have it at pre order at £499 at the moment. Not sure if the price is placeholder or not but it is more expensive than a FE RTX2070 at £475. https://www.overclockers.co.uk/asus-radeon-rx-5700-xt-rog-strix-oc-8gb-gddr6-pci-express-graphics-card-gx-43p-as.html

    Picked up a Rift S yesterday

    Have you tried the Rift S with games like Beat Saber that require very fast and precise controller tracking? It's my most played game on VR, the tracking speed really matters to me.

    9900k setup not even running 2600MHz RAM without bumping VCCIO and VCCSA

    I have been running expensive Intel CPU for a while, so gonna see if the budget Ryzen Zen2 3600 really lives up to the hype. Gonna be a fun few years! :)

    9900k setup not even running 2600MHz RAM without bumping VCCIO and VCCSA

    I have done some further testing as my friend was building a new system. Simply put, there isn't anything wrong with the RAM, either the CPU IMC or motherboard is affecting it. Have swapped to a Ryzen 3600 setup yesterday with the same RAM running XMP without issues now.

    9900k setup not even running 2600MHz RAM without bumping VCCIO and VCCSA

    It's pretty difficult to pin point the issue. Sadly I don't have a second RAM kit to double check.

    9900k setup not even running 2600MHz RAM without bumping VCCIO and VCCSA

    I have a Corsair kit: 32GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3200MHz C16 DDR4 (2x16GB) But even the best die might have some faulty one mixed in.

    Zotac GeForce RTX 2070 Super AMP Extreme

    The only issue I can see would be FDB bearing, where it require a certain speed to bring the fluid bearing into the proper operating range. Sleeve and ball bearing life shouldn't be affected by start stop transitions.

    9900k setup not even running 2600MHz RAM without bumping VCCIO and VCCSA

    I am very grateful with the recommendations that everyone given on the thread, having been out of the loop for such a long time it was very helpful. I think I should RMA my RAM first before toying the idea of the mobo or even the CPU being bad. As everything else is stable other than the ram speed.

    9900k setup not even running 2600MHz RAM without bumping VCCIO and VCCSA

    Hmm, it seems that everyone is pointing to the Gigabyte motherboard instead of a RAM issue. I ordered the motherboard and CPU from OCUK, let see what they say.

    I am running 1.35V at the moment and only 2400MHz.

    9900k setup not even running 2600MHz RAM without bumping VCCIO and VCCSA

    Did you have to RMA the board in the end?

    9900k setup not even running 2600MHz RAM without bumping VCCIO and VCCSA

    The default BIOS on it was even worse, I would be lucky to even POST half the time on default. Intel states the 9900k should support 2600MHz natively, so I don't think they would require a overvolt to achieve a DRAM speed within official spec.

    9900k setup not even running 2600MHz RAM without bumping VCCIO and VCCSA

    I am running AIDA to check. Currently running stock VCCIO (0.95V) and VCCSA (1.05V) and only 2400 MHz.

    9900k setup not even running 2600MHz RAM without bumping VCCIO and VCCSA

    I am not sure what is wrong with my system, is the the mobo, CPU or RAM. Have tried reseating CPU, RAM, changing RAM slots and on the latest BIOS. Using XMP, the system won't even get to the rated 3200MHz speed. Instead it will only do 2800MHz with over 1.3V on VCCIO and VCCSA, with the auto...

    i9 9900k gaming build (for future GFX cards)

    Thank you everyone for the help. My new rig is up and running now and complete overkill for my GTX970.

    i9 9900k gaming build (for future GFX cards)

    Seems alright, sadly RAM seems a lot cheaper over in the US.

    i9 9900k gaming build (for future GFX cards)

    I am still undecided going with fast 16GB vs slower 32GB.

    i9 9900k gaming build (for future GFX cards)

    It seems that all the fast B die RAM are 2 x 8GB, so I will need to use all 4 slots for 32GB and it's massively expensive. I might just grab more later down the line.

    i9 9900k gaming build (for future GFX cards)

    Thanks for everyone's reply. I would like 32 GB RAM if possible but it seems that the kit I pick is one of the slower ones out there. Is it worth to step down the size for a faster kit then? It's mostly for gaming, I do run some VM for Android games at times. The only game I played that uses...

    POST fine but only see half the RAM and no multipler settings on 2600k

    It seems that it's proper dead (permanently half dead) then. I have tried removing battery and it cleared the BIOS settings without issues, but also zero changes in terms of fixing the problem.

    POST fine but only see half the RAM and no multipler settings on 2600k

    The was a reset jumper on the mobo, I used that to clear the settings on me messing up the fan curve and messing with all core boost to 4.3 GHz (didn't post).

    POST fine but only see half the RAM and no multipler settings on 2600k

    Hi all, Hopefully this is the right place to ask, I have been running this same system for a long time on a stable overclock and zero issues until now. I used the reset pin on the MOBO then strange things started happening. Issues 2600k multiper settings completely gone from BIOS Mobo only...
