Welp..There's a good chance they're not Hynix MFR/CFR ICs anyway :D
At least Crucial makes their own ICs.
Do you have a link with the timings and such?

Timings on DDR3 and DDR4 make virtually no tangible system performance difference once the RAM frequency is above 1600 MHz. as the DRAM is no longer a system bottleneck. Timings make even less diff than frequency increases which do not make a tangible diff on discrete desktop CPU powered systems using 1600 MHz. or higher RAM frequency or ~2133 MHz. on APU powered desktops.

This has all been documented with real software. The DRAM benches show theoretical performance or performance potential if the CPU/APU was able to provide much greater data flow, which it can't.

^ I'll keep that in mind :rolleyes:.
You might as well go get you some ddr3 1333 CAS9,overclock it to 1600 and call it good.

Since timings don't make a difference,why not CAS11 @ 1600Mhz? :laugh:
