    ...1600 @ 8-8-8-24 and 1.5V right? Or 1866 @ 9-9-9-24 + whatever volts?

    Local computer shop for some reason doesn't sell the 1600mhz version any more which is what I have and want, only this one. :rolleyes:

    Thanks heaps in advance!!!

    Hehe, one thing I can say without worrying about religion: Happy new years. :toast:

    Try to use CPUID and go to ram section, should have list where you can see what timings you should expect at 1600 and 1866.

    Also it's Merry Christmas and Happy New Years. No such thing as offending anybody. Nobody should be offended, everybody should respect each other no matter what. The more people complain the more Governments will intervene in our life that will turn out to be real bad for everybody in the end. So regardless who it is, smile and tell them to have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Years :)

    You should be able to run it at CAS 8 @ 1866 since it's CAS 9 @ 2133. But why not run it at its advertised specs?

    Yeah... there should be no such thing as wars, terrorism etc... Let's not get started... yeah I know I started it. :hiding: :D

    EDIT: That memory calculating thing in CPU-Z is terribly in accurate, says I need 11-11-11-30 for an 80mhz overclock on my ram. :wtf:

    I have the 1600mhz 8-8-8-24 version of this RAM and I just wanna make sure they'd go together fine. Plus 1600/1866mhz is plenty fast enough, I like a good balance of speed and latency. :)

    BTW it's 9-11-10, not 9-9-9, I hate it when people refer to latencies with CLx, even though it's technically right. ;)

    That ram should do 7-9-8-28 @ 1600, and 8-10-9 @ 1866. Maybe with 1.5v.

    My RAM (see specs) is rated 2133 C9 (I think) but it's running at 1600 7-7-7-24 1T @1.5v so I would aim for that kind of speed and latency.

    I did it on purpose. I was like "if I write it like this, it will make his skin CRAWL!" [​IMG]
