    Can you hit cas 6 if you drop it to 2133? I'm debating getting that kit. Though I should really change boards first to see what my 19200 kit can do. These asus boards have been a total disaster, not a single good bios yet. Can you recommend a better board for memory clocking? Checking around and so far the Biostar TP67XE keeps coming up as the most rock solid 1155 board.

    I don't think it will be easy to push cas 6 with this one LAN. I just don't wanna headache with corrupted os and bios:)

    I like this Giga UD7 even sometimes more difficult to tame compared to the line of Asus board, but probly because it has more tight internal sub timings in its bios. TP67 is the most easy going P67 board and its cheaper too

    Wherever I can find the iron.
    Highly recommend the Biostar TP67XE with 126 bios. Great board, especially for the price. However, I think the platform is not great for memory overclocking. Only a handful of dividers, and no way to increase in small increments because of multiplier overclocking. I've just decided to run my Team Xtreem 2000's at 1866 and tighten up the timings.

    Well I don't really have an issue sticking to the divider limits, plenty of 2133 options. Seems my issue is with running 4 sticks. Appears to be past the limit on most boards.

    Can you control the base clock at .1 increments?

    The problem with all board when testing high freq and tight timmings memory oc'd is bios corruption. With Biostar TP67XE is better to have a spare bios chip just in case.

    Other P67 boards have dual bios or crash free bios, so it is a little bit easier to recover from bios corruption
