    Here are some images I grabbed from the bios that will or may have relevance to the memory:

    run a memtest - it willl tell you what the settings are.


    Just got mine in last night... no luck with the timings at 1.5v - they are definitely much better with voltage than the blacklines, but since I am on an older 1156, the backlines do better at 1.62v than these at 1.5.

    Blacklines 7-8-7-21 1T at 1.62v
    Samsung 8-8-8-21 1T at 1.5v

    Although they do post at 1.5v at the cas 7 setting, where as the blaclines will not.

    CPU-Tweaker from the memset dude can show (and adjust iirc though this is not ideal) all your subtimings.

    Ah crap sorry. P55 is the newest chipset I've used personally. I'm kind of surprised though. We couldn't use Memset anymore once the memory controller went on-die but I don't understand offhand why CPU-Tweaker does not support your system.

    That MemTweakIt is just an Asus thing or what?

    UPDATE: More info below (Felix is the tweakers.fr guy; apparently he doesn't have the info he needs from Intel which obviously sucks majorly):

    Yeah, I've 40GB now, but only using 16GB of it. :laugh:

    Amazon, Tigerdirect, and somewhere else I can't recall.

    OK. I've got my chip back on water, and tonight I'm gonna play with the sticks a bit.

    Anyone tried those in a x58 mobo?

    Just bought three 4gb stick... I'll see what my 970 IMC can do then post my results.

    @LagunaX: Could you post a link to that little software you use to test memory? The black window makes me curious!

    ? What black window ?

    I just use Prime95 x64.

    The only thing i change is doing a "custom" blend test by increasing the memory to all my free available memory on my system which is usually 6.7gb for 8gb. Otherwise prime95 will default to testing only 1.6gb.

    linX can tell you your free available memory by clicking on the "all" button next to memory after linX loads up.

    You can also change the min/max FFT's to 720k size for Prime95 custom blend if you want but that will just mostly test memory and not the whole system overclock stability.

    Someone over on [H] says hes running 2200 9-10-10-24 @1.5v. That's nuts! Wonder if he's fully stable.... :shadedshu

    I've 4x4GB of these low profile Samsungs. The settings below passed HyperPI 32M. Trying out for Prime 95 blend now.

    Rig:
    i7-2600S
    Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3 rev 1.3
    4x4GB Samsung DDR1600 at 1866 9-9-9-24 1T 1.45v

    LOL. The processor's hitting nearly 80C on the stock cooler.

    @LagunaX: I did find out what i was asking for.

    What i meant by "black window" was the y-cruncher one. Can this program be trusted when it comes to memory testing? Memtest lost a lot of it's appeal lately, as the last two times i played with timings, my sticks could go through 2 memtest 4,20 pass without any problem, then folding@home crashed within 10 minutes...

    So when i'll start to play with those new ram sticks, which seems to beg for overclocking, what would you recommend to quick test and to confirm 24/7 stability? You seems to use prime95 for the second task, but what settings are you using on y-cruncher and prime, besides using the most ram possible?

    Received mine. For those wondering, the chips are HYK0. Maybe someone will be able to find some other RAM using these chips?

    there is the confusion. It was me, not Laguna. Just run it using at least 4GB of memory. It does tend to crash quickly if your memory is not stable.

    OK, thanks Paulieg. I'll post back what results i can get when i receive my three sticks, which should be late this week.

    Sidenote: My part number is MV-3V4G3/US, not MV-3V4G3D/US like the dual-channel your all using. My logic tells me that the "D" stands for dual channel, but any chance there could be more difference?

    Here is my rock stable overclock with these sticks. I can get 2133 stable for benches at CAS 10, but they don't like Cas 9 on 16GB with the voltages I'm willing to use. I do think I may be able to get TRAS 21 stable with just a touch more voltage. This overclock is on 1.44v. I'm happy with this right now 1884 8-9-9-24 1T. Been a long time since I've had this much fun with "budget" ram.

    So this MemTweakiT can be used on non-Asus boards?
