    My Gskill F3-2400C9-8GTXD arrived today! Kit is dated to be made this month.

    The kit is made up of 2x4GB sticks and the sticks are double sided IC with 8 on each side for a total of 16 IC per stick.

    I'll be testing them later on. Will also remove heat shields and post photos of ICs later on.

    See if you can get the command rate at 1T. Maxmem scores are much higher than Aida in read/write/copy. Most use Aida for those benchmarks.

    I don't have Aida.

    I will try the 1T but first I want to see if I can run XMP setting with less voltage. I just got done gaming for about 45 minutes straight in UT3 without any problems. Felt great.

    Still great results. I run 16G of the Gskill Tridents. They look great.:toast:

    I lowered the voltage to 1.5v for XMP profile and it wouldn't boot to OS but booted to BIOS then
    I adjusted to 1.55v and again it wouldn't boot to OS but it booted to BIOS so I tried 1.6v and it booted to BIOS and ran the same benchmarks and the benchmarks were just slightly lower in scores but appears to be stable.


    Now I'm going to see if I can tighten timings at 2400mhz.

    I'm not very good at over clocking ram and my MSI Mpower MB has been extremely finicky with ram in the past and remains to be so. I think I may be able to do better with a 3770k since it supposed to be better for over clocking.

    The best I'm able to get with this ram is 5GHZ CPU with 2500mhz CL9. That is with the XMP enabled with FSB bumped to 104. 48 multiplier. 1.7v on the ram.

    Be careful here. Intel says that you really shouldn't increase memory voltage above 1.65v.

    I bumped it down to 1.67v for 2500mhz CL9. I'll be careful. :lovetpu:

    I'd be interested to see what they could do at 2133Mhz since I'm stuck on Sandy Bridge and that is the highest speed the memory divider allows without upping bclk. Here's what I've got on my Samsung Green's ($30 for 8GB, amazing!):

    The Tridents do the same.

    I tried 4 different sets of the cheap Sammy 8 GB kits and at 5GHz CPU and above system was unstable.

    Those are a great value but they didn't work out well on my MSI motherboards. I tried them on a Z68 and Z77 MSI mother board and best I could get was 2133mhz CL9 and it was only stable at speeds below 5GHZ on CPU.

    I just did a quick ram adjustment of 2133mhz CL 9-11-10-27 1T 1.5v and my new Gskill sticks are buttery smooth with these settings.

    3770k, I run daily at 4.7Ghz but it is stable at 5Ghz too.

    I don't know for certain but some people in the over clocking community believe the IMC of the 3770k to be stronger than that of the 3570k.

    No.

    Is there a method to do so?

    Right now I'm stable with 5GHZ on 3570k and the memory at 2600mhz 10-12-12-30 2T 1.7v.

    My IMC seems strong for 3570k.
