my memory clock sub is reported by acm_fan, "TWO DIFFERENT MODULES, IT'S CHEAT OR BROKEN RULES"

cheat is a wrong word and should ask for a clarification, it's better if you can avoid using that word without knowing it & should have been avoided, and i have not broken rules. i always go by rules.

when i purchased 3466 kit(in 2016) one of the stick i received is 4140 and that's been always used for higher frequencies. now if you see the sticker it will show only 3466 and timings of that but when you look at spd you will see 4140 19-25-25-45-1t. hence the confusion.

IF ANY ONE GOT DOUBT,  WILL GIVE A VIDEO OF THAT. BUT I AM LITTLE SURPRISED PEOPLE PICK UP LAST PLACED SUB TO REPORT IT. (from 2016 till now all submissions of G.SKILL competitions you will find the same stick pic). WHAT IS USED IS WHAT POSTED IN PICTURE.

edt: could find couple of comps where the same stick is used.

Hi, 
Just in case I get my CPU and motherboard on time (unlikely considering Indonesian Customs, but hopefully my luck will prevail :p),

is there any deadline for BIOS revisions? a.k.a the last day for the bios to be uploaded to HWBOT to be considered public and valid for competition use. Or there is no BIOS deadline?

 

Thanks :)
