    :slap:Either the Mushkin 2133's start hitting rated speed:nutkick:
    Or hopefully the sammy's will hit 2133 :confused:

    I can probably help you out. Just send me a PM if you'd like to talk about it.

    What a guy! I would love to step up like this but my post office is a nightmare (and what happens if they get lost en route?).

    Back on the XS thread the AIDA64 read write copy latency scores of 9-10-10-28 1T was about equivalent to an overclocked patriot set at 9-11-9-27 1T both at 2133 but the Sammys requiring less vdimm and less profile.

    I have those Mushkin enhanced blackline kit.
    Best I could do on them were 9-11-10-27 1T 1.65v for 2133.
    revin says thanks.

    The question is if this really is such a great deal, or is is overhyped? I dunno. I haven't looked much at DDR3, but enought to know it's insanely cheap right now. To the point where I'm wondering if I should buy some... even though I don't even own a DDR3 motherboard. I do get it, cheap unassuming ram that performs way above what it's advertised to do. Cool beans.

    what are the lowest timings that you can get at 1600? My H55 MB limits me to 160 bclk.

    Don't remember if I took a screenshot with the Mushkins.
    However, you should be able to do the XMP CL10 by choosing the XMP option in bios.
    Otherwise it is a problem with your mobo or ram.

    I'm afraid it may be the Extreme board,
    Passed XTU and Memtest
    XMP then manual setting timings and volts just went into Boot shutdown Loops!!

    XMP lods everything correct, it's just something else to do with something like VCIOO or something voltage. Till I can pinpoint what that is listed in my BIOS I'm screwed!?!

    I just got 2136 9-10-10-28-1T 1.47v 2 hours WCG crunching stable. I'd post a screenie, but my wireless card in my bench rig died, and won't have a new one until tomorrow.

    2133 9-10-10-28-1T @ 1.5v gave me a few errors in memtest about 45% in :(
    so it looks like 1.5125v is the way for me :)

    If I had $32.17 more in my paypal I could pick up four sets of these with a newegg coupon I just got today :( I'd have it in there, too, except for buying parts for a friend :eek:

    27 kept on failing P95 after 45min for me so I stuck with 28 but let us know if 27 works out for you :)

    No, you're right! Typo, must have been thinking something else: it is 28, not 27! 9-10-10-28, thanks for catching that.

    I'm considering picking up an 8GB set of these, mostly to free up some space for an aftermarket heatsink. My current setup of RAM would block most cost-effective options. Wondering it's it's worth it to go from CL8 DDR3-1600 to something like 10-10-10-28 DDR3-2133 like most people seem capable of getting.
