    Thanks!

    Yeah thats bandwidth stuff...I thought you had some real world benchmarks you completed and were basing that off of. Not sure why you wont provide any links. I have tried looking, trust me, and havent found anything leading me to believe otherwise but more to the contrary. Oh well.

    Here is just one quick link: http://techreport.com/review/20377/...of-memory-speed-on-sandy-bridge-performance/2

    2133MHz Sweet Spot

    That's the same conclusion I got, after much research. I noticed that above 2133 they are all 1.65 volt sticks with much looser timings, so what you gain in throughput, you probably lose in latency. I can get great throughput even on my crappy 1600 Kingston clocked at 1866 (24.5 GB/s), but the latency sucks (49.7 ns) I like the Patriot Intel Extreme Masters 2133 MHz at $56 for 8 GB.

    LOL too lazy? No. Not sure why you seem to be calling ME out to run these claims that YOU are making. I posted links showing otherwise, its your turn to post something relevant up... Im not going to play these reindeer games of yours like I did the last time I had to prove myself right against what is common held as true...ball is in your court, sir. :)

    EDIT: But before you continue, you may want to quantify/qualify this vague statement (this discussion may be over nothing, haha!):

    Your link shows a 2600K and the benchmarks do not show limited real world benchmarks and depending on the relevance of the user on some apps. Not starting a new debate here just saying. I may have been to broad with the statement.

    Can we stay on topic please? Pretty sure this was about overclocking a memory kit, not who will run what to impress who! If you care to continue that discussion, please do so via PMs. ;)

    This is the end result,this is with 1.5v so the specs are precisely the same as on the 1866mhz binned kit of this memory.

    not bad, not bad at all. 400 MHz OC is pretty good, actually!!!

    Last settings proved unstable,loosened the timings abit.
