    D.O.C.P Question

    I have a new Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Hero (WI-FI) with the latest BIOS and I am running memory from the QVL list.

    The memory is 3600C16.

    I got the system running stable so I wanted to run the memory at the correct speed of 3600 C16.

    I can confirm the MB "slow mode" switch is off.

    Maybe I'm missing something but don't all I have to do is select the D.O.C.P. profile and it should run at that speed?

    I took a screenshot of the BIOS and it shoes the the D.O.C.P. profile selected and I do a save and reboot and it always shows 2133MHz.

    CPU-z shoes the DRAM speed of ~1800MHz C16 so is that confirming the memory is running 3600 C16?

    Thanks,
    DB

    If you select the D.O.C.P profile, it should overclock the ram modules to that speed. This works when the system is properly configured. The BIOS and CPUID will display both correct settings. From my observation, I don't know how are you getting close 4500 rpm's on the processor fan. It seems that it's going to fly away into space.

    Correct, 1800Mhz (memory controller speed or if you like the I/O bus clock speed) = 3600 DDR speed. Your memory is running @ 3600 speed. You may find this useful https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DDR4_SDRAM

    If you want perfectly rounded numbers in the BIOS find FSB spread spectrum and change from AUTO to OFF. Which will give a neat 100.0Mhz instead 99.98 or something.

    You can also use something like HWinfo or Aida64 to check speeds.

    AS185, the CPU fan is connected to a AIO water cooler, I don't know what to expect for RPM.

    RedSector73, thanks for the info/links. Should the BIOS report a speed or 3600/1800, what does the 2133 mean from the BIOS?

    Thanks,
    DB

    The UEFI will always report the effective memory frequency, should be clear if you've digested the links provided by Red Sector

    The wiki talked about DDR4, history and what changed. The other two links were to software so though I did look at the information but I didn't see anything that talked about the UEFI and what it displays on the memory speeds.

    Dude, you're fine with the settings. No worries
    In the BIOS you have profile#1 established for the 3600 MHz. CPUID is displaying the DRAM Frequency at 1797 MHz is also correct because you multiply that by 2.
    Can you tell us the name of the all-in-one water cooler installed?

    Both of the software will correctly report the speed of the RAM

    Go advanced in the BIOS then select it like this
    Click image for larger version.

    I actually never run my BIOS in standard screen only in advanced so I don't know the answer sorry.

    AS185, the cooler is a Corsair H115i RGB Platinum. The fan connection only has 1 wire going to the connector but it does go to the right pin on the fan header. I find that off that there isn't a 2nd wire for the ground but they must figure it's all one common ground in the PC.
    Thanks,
    DB

    The kit you obtained should have a SATA power plug, CPU_FAN 3-pin connector, and two 4-pin fan connectors. You should also have RGB cables hanging and CORSAIR iCUE USB cable.
    Did you connect all of those or at least the most important ones (SATA, cpu_fan, and 4-pin connectors)? For the majority of AIO's on the market the maximum RPMs are 2000.
