    I have an R4 4820k, my Area-51's had an x58 board similar to yours but larger (ATX), 960s & a 975 on OC Level3 w/out issue, I sold all of that a few years ago for newer parts. I saw your Ryzen post on the Dellware forum; changing new hardware in wasn't difficult. Aurora & Area-51 released in...

    Aurora R1 Ram Issues

    what happens when u get 1600MHz ram, reboot & then load overclocking profile 1 2 (or 3) for the CPU? Can u change 150x12 manually to 150x11? I no longer own the x58 mthrbrd, I'm out of ideas (try different Corsair or Kingston memory kit? Vengeance may not be compatible?), maybe also ask this...

    Aurora R1 Ram Issues

    If the XMP (auto) was 150x12 = 1800, it doesn't sound like 1600 memory, but did u try 150x11=1650? If u then loaded default settings, got this error, did you reboot to Bios, did u turn XMP off, set multiplier / ratio to 12x133 and +200mv? If that didn't work you can post into the Dell forum...

    Aurora R1 Ram Issues

    the next step up from 1600 is 1866 (+266), so if someone asked if 1866 was better than 1600 I doubt there'd be objections, so the fact you're minus 100 (1500 vs 1600) isn't a grave difference You won't damage anything by rasing uncoreV +200, it's the advise given by alien engineers to the Mods...

    Aurora R1 Ram Issues

    I've never heard of this issue nor know what to tell ya other than to try to overclock just one stick & see what happens, (if it works, try two, then three then four sticks etc, maybe one is bad), also wait for other member input here & try to ask this on the Dell forum. Memory has to be rated...

    You have an R1 The stock cooler W550R or K7JKJ are 27mm wide radiator paired to a 38mm wide fan & can be found new/used eBay When buying a 49mil wide rad like 80i V2 / GT, you have to consider the top motherboard sill (& CPU 8pin plug) can interfere with these deeper rads, but I have seen 80i...

    Area 51 R2 Power Supply Upgrade?

    "I have seen your post on this I do believe. But if I remember you dont have case lights correct? Also it was difficult to drop that MSI godlike board into the area 51 r2 case, as far as getting alienware command center to install and work." No, I haven't tried my MSI board in the R2 case...

My MSI board has a set-it and forget-it ddr4 / cpu overclocking feature I use. My 3600 ddr4 has XMP profiles that 'work' at the 3000+ speeds, plus a more...
