    Just wanted to chime in, I picked up two 2x4GB sets (Running 16GB total) because of this thread.

    I was able to get 2133 to post and boot no problem on Z68 chipset. However, I never could quite get it stable. Memtest passed no issue, but was failing P95. This was at 2133 11-11-11-24 2T @ 1.5 (and 1.55 vt).

    So after giving up on a few different configs on 2133, I went down to 1866 and am running stable at 1866 9-9-9-24 2T @ 1.45vt.
    Pretty happy for 16GB of budget memory.

    I still want to see someone running eight of these sticks on X79 at 1600 (7-7-7-X) or 1866 (8-8-8-X)...

    I have two sticks in for review, will be using X79. I'm very eager to see 8 sticks as well, but these are not available locally right now.

    @Cybrnook - try 1T @ 1866 - these sticks don't seem to care 1T or 2T.
    I think Paulieg got his 8-9-9-21 1T 1866 16gb less than 1.5v.

    They will not run in a 2x2 configuration at 1600 cl7 on the H55 with a Lynnfield IMC. It looks like these sticks prefer MHZ over timings. I can only get 8-8-8- 1600 out of them, but then again I can run that at 1.4v all day long.

    Thanks, will try when I get home and post the findings.

    How long are you guys memtesting and priming before labeling "stable"?

    memtest for me is at least 2 passes, but I tend to go right to the ponit where there are errors, and then back off a bit. prime/linX, maybe 8 hours.


    Even so, BF3, seems a better stabiltiy test than both, and I like to try SuperPi32M first thing, before prime/LinX.


    I also check for page faults in the performance monitor. Proper settings should see near 0 is not nil page faults.(suggests timing issues rather than stability might be an issue sometimes).


    When done, all that(which takes just a few hours), then it's an overnight memtest.

    I'll be testing all CAS settings, timings, other platforms, etc. Once the review is posted, I can go into fine detail.

    Oh...well good then. I was under the impression your socks weren't blown off compared to some in the thread.

    You cannot expect a gulftown to get the same clocks as a sandy bridge. Very different imc!

    I'm just saying that even with "old" platform, there is some gain to be made. And the price/performance ratio is really through the roof!

    I am at 9-9-9-24 1T at the moment @ 1.45v. Running a quick prime to see if it holds up off the bat. Thanks, so far so good!



    Thanks for the in-depth answer. I am taking your advice and running prime at least for the next 4 hours. If it holds up, I will mem test over night, then try a few games tomorrow time granted.

    Would be really cool if you eventually get around to posting some deeper CAS settings like you mentioned. Look forward to that.......

    What did you end up using to get 2133 (16GB)? Have you tweaked your timings , voltage at all since all the updates here in the thread?

    Seems like mine WANT to do it, but I just cant find the sweet spot where I am stable on both tests I have been using.

    I have an extra couple of sets sitting here. I'm happy to loan them to you for testing, if you want. LMK. I can also get you 6 single sticks on the cheap.

    still running these at 1870mhz 9-9-9-28 1T with 1.5volts, perfectly stable. not bad for 16gigs @ $80 from microcenter.

    I'd rather not sell them. Considering ram prices are about to go up significantly, we may not find such good ram at these kind of prices for a very long time. I don't mind lending them to a reviewer or a local bencher, but I don't think I'll be selling them.

    There's a bunch of them at Microcenter in Tustin, CA. If I was not so busy with work, I will pick up all of them and sell them to you guys at cost+shipping.

    Here in canada, it seems there's plenty to buy. I'll gladly buy for someone for the price plus shipping cost. They are at 24$ CAN for one 4gb stick and 47$ for a 2x4gb kit.
