    LOL. My 24GB just came today. Gonna run some tests on 16GB config this evening. Post a taste in just a few...

    Edit: First run. More later tonight. Keep in mind, this is 16GB 1866 CAS 8.

    My 8gb set came today too, and I just threw them in. Let's see how it goes! I really hope that it goes as well as everybody else's, like LagunaX and Paulieg.

    Btw, I liked your review on Newegg, LagunaX ;)

    This set went down another dollar today to $47.99.
    Might pick up another set.

    Time to go play with my new Ballistix 2x4gb 1.5v ddr3 1866 CL9 when I get home to see if I can get 9-9-9 2133 ;)

    $64.99 plus tax shipped and a free ram fan, LOL!

    So I threw the sticks in and set them to 2133 11-11-11-30-1t@1.5v. Ran them for a while through memtest without any errors. I haven't done long term testing yet, as I had to run out of the house, but it's a starting reference point. I'll post back with more later on. Going to see how good I can get 2133 and then move on to see if 2400 will run.

    I fell asleep and got busy tonight. I'll take out 2 sticks tomorrow evening, and start benching with 8GB.

    :roll: OK, I found a half hour or so tonight.

    As far as the sticks go, I'm sorry to report...there is nothing to report. I simply could not do any better with just 8GB installed vs. 16GB. That's a first. I tried vdimm up to 1.53 (my personal limit with 1.35v sticks), and they just wouldn't budge. They probably want more voltage than I'm willing to give them right now, until I can confirm safe vdimm on low voltage sticks like this. When I have some time, I'll start playing with secondary timing. However, I'm still happy, as these may be the best budget sticks ever. Certainly cannot complain with 16GB 1866 8-9-9-24 1T on just 1.44v., perfectly stable.

    Those are good looking numbers Paulieg. Did you get a 16gb kit or 2 seperate 8gb kits?
    I haven't seen what is considered safe vdimm for this set yet. But, I was able to run 2133 9-10-10-1T @ 1.55v. I BSOD'd when trying for 9-10-9 even with a bit more vdimm, though I didn't go too much higher. More testing to come, perhaps some attempts with 1866 and tight timings.

    These sticks are so small, felt I was going to break them when putting them in. We shall see what tomorrow brings.

    The Samsungs are the best sticks.
    I got the Crucial Ballistix Tactical 2x4gb CL9 1.5v 1866's tonight and started playing with them. $64.99 plus tax free shipping and ram cooler at the Egg.
    Was sorely disappointed with DDR3 2133 - failed Prime95 pretty quickly at 9-11-9-27 1T 1.65v, after failing 9-9-9-27 and 9-10-9-27.

    These are XMP 9-9-9-27 2T DDR3 1866 1.5v.

    At least on an Intel platform failing that hyped up review of 9-9-9-27 2133.

    Have you heard any consensus on what is considered "safe" voltages on the Samsung?

    So why aren't these things being referred to by a name yet like "TCCD" or "D9" in the past? There isn't even a heat spreader making you do any guesswork! :D

    I think 1.5-1.6v should be fine for ram rated at 1.35v - even though this is new 30nm technology there have been other "eco" ram rated at 1.35v running fine at 1.65v.

    Gonna sell my 1 day old Ballistix Tactical DDR3 1866 9-9-9-27 1.5v ram. Probably my 2x4gb 1.65v XMP 2133 Cl9 G.Skill and Cl10 Mushkin Blackline too.

    Gonna pick up another pair of the low profile Samsung - they are $42.28 economy shipped from Circuitcity.com .

    I may go up to 1.6v, but probably no higher. I did notice that these sticks don't get warm at all, despite increasing voltage. I just traded away 16GB of Geil Evo II's (which are solid), and plan to buy a couple more sets of the Sammys. I have a feeling that these sticks are gonna disappear and be replaced with inferior IC's within a couple of months.
