    Just got the ram yesterday.

    My first test was a low voltage test.

    Set timings at 1T-10-11-10-28 with voltage at 1.5v@2141mhz and ran perfectly stable for over 4 hours with memtest86+ v4.20.

    BiOS settings for test.

    All tests were done with stock i5-2500k heat sink.

    I've been running mine {4gb x 2} at 1600, 8-8-8-24 1T @ 1.5v.
    2600K @ 4GHz.

    I had them at 2133 @ 1.55v : no need for "xmp" 1.65v.

    These kits seem very friendly to a wide variety of settings.

    I have yet to see how they perform with the cpu over clocked. Going to install OS soon and get everything dialed in.

    Tighten your timings and feed it MOAR voltage

    I'd like to keep voltage as low as possible. I don't plan on going higher than 1.65v. Also If possible I'm going to see if these sticks will do 2400mhz with timings around 11-12-11-30, 6-6-6-24 at 1600mhz, 8-8-8-24 at 1866mhz all at 1.5v.


    DDR3 is very cheap these days and I spent quite a bit of money for this set because I wanted a set of DDR3 that had more room for over clocking CPU and I also a wanted a set that would do well with my planned i5-3750k upgrade later on next year. I feel confident this set of ram will go a long ways for over clocking my system.

    This ram has 2 XMP settings. XMP profiles work fine with MSI Z68 GD65 G3.

    XMP Profile stable with BIOS settings.

    MaxMem benchmark with the xmp profile enabled.

    I wish to see this kit on max clocks but it's probably impossible on SB. I doubt that you make it stable much above 2200 so at this point is only way to lower timings.
    I would check something like 8-11-8 or 9-10-9 1.6-1.65V.

    Stable at XMP profile 2133mhz with 1.61v. Very good performance. I think it will do at least 2300mhz.
