    Bump because I'm new, hi tho :toast:

    Currently running my set at 2400 10-12-12-26-1T 1.58v and love it. Kinda want to see if I can get the timings tighter but I really don't know much about timings and I was wondering if anyone could help?

    Welcome to TPU!:toast:
    If I were you, I would run 8 instances of HCI MemTest with 800-1000 MB each to at least 150% coverage on each instance. 1.58VDIMM for 2400 cas10 1T seems a little on the low side to me...
    That being said, if they are stable, you got a pretty impressive set there!
    Ze says thanks.

    Yeah that's a bit...curious. He even filled out his system specs.

    I'm guessing he was either previously banned, has multiple accounts, or is a sworn enemy of TPU.
    Regardless, his post was not disruptive, off-topic, or not helpful, so it has to be something unrelated to that post that got him banned.

    I've run memtest86+ before and passed 6 passes over night, but I just passed 200% with 800mb. Put it up to 845mb so I'm using almost all the ram available atm. Let's see if this holds.

    Oh and I wasn't banned, you guys were just seeing things :laugh:

    Nah, Samsung current ICs are absolutely 1000% capable, if you get the right sticks. I can run 2666 C10 @ 1.55V. Of course, mine are in my Dominator Platinum sticks, so highly binned, but still...it is for sure possible.

    basically, any 2666 C10 kit right now is Samsung based, while 2666 MHz C11 is Hynix-based, just FYI.

    So what I'm hearing from you is
    "Go home and tweak your RAM, idiot."

    Mine's at 1.55v 11-11-11-28 1T. Just kind of set it to 1.55v to ensure it would hold at 2400 and never went back and tweaked it again.:rolleyes:

    EDIT: btw, love the new avatar!

    IVB also clocks memory a bit better than SB-E does when it comes to dram though. The highest my 3820 has done is 11-12-11-33 @ 2450. It's hard to say if thats a limitation of my memory or the IMC though but you know that the 3770k can go as high as 2600-2800mhz.

    Keep on trucking though, those are some pretty nice numbers anyhow. :cool:

    I rolled back to 1866 cl8-9-9-21-1T at 1.5v for daily and that's 100% stable. Kinda struggling to get good timings that hold up with 2200+ and it sucks.

    I've had these sticks at 2520 with 11-11-11-28 1T on this chip(without any fuss, either), so I know the IMC is capable of speeds higher than 2400. Tighter timings at these speeds, however, I'm unsure of. I've pretty much decided 2400 is more than enough for 24/7 use, so if I can lower the voltage and/or the CAS at these speeds, it's just icing on the cake.:cool:

    How about the C11 2800 MHz sticks? Both only from G.skill and Corsair. On that note is there really any benefit to be gained from picking corsair over g.skill when it's a $100 more for the same chips?

    Should be Hynix.


    As to Corsair, their support is worth it for me.


    My last two sets of Dominator GT's died, and they didn't have stock to replace them. After I provided receipts, they refunded me the full purchase price(I have pics of the cheque, even). That was over $500, and at the time ,the sticks would have retailed for about $225 for both kits. Corsair Rocks. I'll pay extra to know I'll get my money back if the sticks die and they cannot replace...
