    trying to get the most out of crucial ram help

    just got a set of ballistix 2666 ram based on D9 chips i was wondering if theres a bios that is tuned for them instead flashing thru each on also is there a setting in the bios which changes dram drive strengths on this board maybe just labeled differently because micron always benefited atleast for me by changing this.

    this memory only boots on the 125 strap and next div up is 3250 which is to high and using the 125 strap and upping bclk past target 102 or around 127 ~128 =booting with no display

    You might have reach the limit for your RAM. Alternatively, you can try getting them stable on the 100 Strap.

    100 strap is a no go which is why i asked about a tuned bios maybe a setting is too tight because ive tried manually inputting all the settings that it autos to every last one that the bios shows and itll boot even the rtl's. so everythings manual now i then switch to 100 strap and nothing bd or bf even on 3000 which is known to boot every time on the 125 strap, but its not my memory limit as i ve said i can up the bclk and itll boot its just after 102 on the targeted bclk i get no display maybe my 290x dont like lol but ive been putting man hours on it

    When pushing memory frequency, the bd and bf are commong QCODEs. bd is telling you that you need more System Agent Voltage while bf means your memory is unstable. Try relaxing your timings if you want 3000MHz+. Sometimes a slight increment in DRAM voltage helps as well.
