Running memory that high will all depend on your IMC. My 3960 has a dud of an IMC that craps out just over 2400Mhz. On the other hand my ES 3770K does up to 2600 with some 2133Mhz modules.

 

1 Question, which blocks are you using on the 7970 Matrix. Full cover or only the GPU core?


Processor Intel Core I7 4690X  4.3Ghz
Memory G.Skill RipJaws  32GB 2400Mhz
Motherboard ASUS Rampage IV BE
Graphics  GTX TitanX x2
Power Corsair AX 1200,
Monitor ASUS PQ321Q
Cooling Liquid by comittee

Storage  OCZ RevoDrive 350 480GB  Seagate 8TB

I like FrozenCPU, People say they are over priced. But I can get everything I need at one place and save on shipping costs, plus they ship it fast 3-days I have item.

Have you ran a calculation on your power supply yet, I was wondering what you came up with.

From what I can see in the specifications on the two kits your comparing. The TridentX modules are built around the Ivy Bridge Z77 chipset, and the Evo Veloce modules have been listed as compatible with the Intel X79. Evo Veloce or Evo Leggera would be my choice. At those speeds you will have better results with a 4X1GB kit running just 2 up would be my advice, the 4X2 or 4X4 kits running 4 up will not clock as high, HyperX 4X1 CL12 kit would be my overall choice for highest overclock running just 2 up.

They rate them @ 1.65V CL11, after stable 2800 loosen the timings and keep the juice under 2.0V and you will be fine.

Yes that sounds right, at 1183W you would be at 2183W with your Matrix cards. They normally  use basic reference cards @ 150W each..lol  :teehee:   You forgot to add the extra,.. Did you run two calculations, first with 3 cards and then second time with 4 cards. To see what they are allowing for each card ?, You will need to do the math allowing 400W per card. Overclocked , at max settings, under full load.

 

If they are allowing 150W per card  then X 4 = 600W

your Matrix cards spec. @ 400W  X 4 = 1600W 

So just add 1000W to your calculation and you would be at 2183W,  "Provided they are allowing 150W each card".  You will need to confirm exactly what they are allowing, I'm only speculating the 150, as that is what they "normally" allow for each reference 7000 series card. 

By running calculation twice,   :slap:
