Same problems - Cold boot and Sleep issues with Rampage 4 Extreme
I'm glad I found more people having the same problems as it proves I am not crazy. I have a similar configuration and I am experiencing very similar issues. My configuration is:
- Rampage IV Extreme with the 1101 BIOS update (Jan 11 2012)
- Intel Core i7 3960X running at stock 3.3GHz
- 16GB of G.Skill F3-17000CL9-4GBZH kit (same as yours), but only 1 kit
- 2 x OCZ Vertex 3 240GB in RAID 0
- 2 x Velociraptors 300GB in RAID 0
- 2 x Seagate Barracudas 3TB
- 1 x EVGA GTX 580 3GB
- Windows 7 x64
- Watercooling on the CPU and chipset
I have the following similar issues:
- Memory is only detected as 1600MHz, not as 2133MHz. I have everything on "Auto" and have not yet tried the configurations mentioned in this thread.
In order to get sleep issues corrected, along with all your other issues, you need to get a stable system first. Sleep will not work appropriately if your system is unstable.
I assume you mean you memory is F3-17000CL9Q-4GBZH ...a 4 x 4GB 16GB kit.
Run your CPU at OEM specs to begin.
Set your system to XMP so it reads the right SPD ROM profile on the ram. This will set the frequency to 2133 and set the appropriate voltages and ram timings. Also, as noted on the GSKILL website, set the Rampage Tweak to Mode 1 (under DRAM Tming Control).
With you memory running at XMP settings and Rampage Tweak Mode 1, run memtest and check your system for stability.
You can keep everything else on Auto as long as your not overclocking the CPU yet. If your system performs rock stable, sleep should also begin working correctly.
