Hello!

 One thing led to another and a crazy idea is being built.

 I  am an AMD fan and now own 2 9590s' and an 8350
 I have two ASRock Fatal1ty 970 Performance mother boards with Kingston HyperX 1886 MHZ  (4X8gb)
 Here shortly I will rieve a Kingston Predator M.2 form factor as primary system SSD Currently using a HyperX 120 gb SSD

 I have had a few snags and thought to get advice.

 First snag is I cannot run the 1886 DDR3 at 1886 MHZ without lock up(s). True I do not know much about setting the OC settings related to RAM. So yes time to ask questions.

 I have attempted to OC and the best I can do is 5% and run at 49xxMHZ with a reported maximum of 63xx MHZ

 I am running possible too small a power supply at 680 watts. As I can hear the fans slow a bit when all 8 cores are at 100% so I freely share that.

 In a perfect world I would love to pusththe HyperX 1886 above 1886 MHZ but getting there first will be a winner.


 So, this started when I ordered the AeroCool AIR "test bench" case and ASRock Fatal1ty 970 with memory and SSD. then I decided to stack another Mother Board on top of that and then I went with the triple mother board idea.. Just to do it! 
 I have everything I need including two Raspberry Pi Monitors to build into the lid for easy displays for the two "slave" computers.
 I intend to explore and learn Message Passing Interface programming (MPI) so besides an interesting ( to me) build I also want that "mini" supercomputer action :)

 So two Fatal1ty boards had identical memory and the third board is not an ASRock MB but still an AMD cpu the 8350 with 32MB of 1600 DDR3 which I can OC to 1886

 Okay that's my story and I sure hope to glean so OC advice in making the best use of the CPU, MB and Memory.. The Kingston Predator speaks for itself doesn't it?




What? Confused

How can you stack two, much less three mother boards on an Aerocool Strike-X Air bench type chassis? You can't even stack two Aerocool Strike-X Airs on each other.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/321698918059?lpid=82&chn=ps&ul_noapp=true

Either "AeroCool AIR Test bench" is not the actual name, or you need to check it more closely.

Something tells me you'll need more than one PSU with more than one mother board. Particularly if your mystery 680 Watt PSU's 12V rail is drooping so much that the fans slow down when used with one mother board.

wardog must be tired, he let over clocking an FX-9590 on a 970 Performance board slip by without comment. Nuke  I'll just say, good luck with that.

What type of CPU cooling will you be using with "stacked" mother boards, with FX-9590 CPUs? Can't be air cooling, for multiple reasons. Custom water cooling with stacked boards will result in some interesting plumbing, not to mention where the radiators will be located.

No mention of video cards yet...

You have maybe 50% of this build planned so far, component-wise that is. Doesn't sound like you have everything you need. I would add at least a whole lot of zip ties.

You have a lot more to worry about then over clocking your memory to 1866.

The Kingston Predator SSD is a PCIe 2.0 x4 interface, AHCI PCIe SSD. Faster than SATA SSDs, but out classed by the PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe SSDs, like the current Samsung 950 Pro, OCZ RD400, or Intel 750. It's nice, but not top tier.

Find the "CPU/NB Voltage" setting and bump it 0.01 or 0.02v and test stability.


As for the 680 being enough, you don't list what the system is comprised so we have no real idea if it is, or not.
