Overclocking your memory usually yields VERY little performance gains. I would do it for space, but not for overclocking, unless you benchmark with Hwbot or something.

I think you get more out of same speeds but better timings, correct? Usually higher speeds and looser timings equals about the same performance.

This is correct. ^^

Regardless though, in most cases, it yields little to no performance gains..especially something tangible. You *may* get a frame or two, but unless you are getting 5, and now 7, you wont notice.

Not on newer Intel platforms. Speed is king, but it's kinda subjective as to how much "real world" performance that overclocking provides. I will say that I can feel a significant difference between 1600 CAS 7 and 1866 CAS 8. The systems just flows better better at 1866. However, I really can't notice any difference b/t 1866 and 2133.

I'd like to see benchmarks with MultiGPU, exploring how much a role memory plays. ;)


I think i'll be joining this thread. I've not noticed anyone rally posting subtimings, what are we looking at here?

I knew you were going to link that thread. :laugh: That's why I mentioned "flow". I know that benchmarks don't show much of a difference, but everything just feels snappier at 1866 CAS 8 than 1600 CAS 7. I've considered that it's a placebo affect, but I honestly don't think so.

I'll post some subtimings tonight or tomorrow, after I get my 2600k back on water.

"Butt dyno's" :)p) are so subjective though. If you were put through a double blind test, I would bet good money says you couldnt tell the difference to the point of quantitating (is that a word?!!) the differences (meaning, Yeah, that window opened faster or...that app opened faster).

Cad - I would love to see those results as well and if it changes. I know overclocking the CPU helps push the pixels in multi GPU configs, but not sure about memory. If I wasnt balls deep in reviews I would test that with 580's...:(

I know memory makes a difference in certain apps With MultiGPU. But whatever, would be nice to have a list of whta apps it matters with, and what apps do not care. Might be an interesting list.

At least ya got work to do though, now stop posting and get'er done! :laugh:

Clearly, I gots time to post. :laugh:

I would love to see those tests. So far, nobody has tested it though, so its all an assumption to this point (but clearly a logical jump I agree with).

Yeah yeah :)... trying to wrap up this Evga FTW article and some Geil memory (arriving today) already so I can finally sell off the entire platform and get back to my 55x SB and benching. I dont like this platform as it stands. Its kind of sad to me that my Asrock Extreme4-M was the most stable board out of the box vs UD7 and FTW... LOL (but I digress).

Yeah, I'm waiting on the samsung memory to arrive still.


I've tested quite a few apps, of course, and the most noticible is Dirt2 or F12010...Codemasters games in general, but I'm very interested to see how other apps behave. It's a huge undertaking to test, for sure.

It's interesting to see Samsung back in the game, last semi-decent ICs were HFC0, if i remember right.

Nice. I'm running close to that now. I'm not sure how you are going to clock much higher. Most, if not all Z68 boards only go up to a 2133 strap, and bclk will only be stable to 104-106 max.

I think several high end boards have a 24x multi... I have to check at home but I think the Sniper 2 does, UD7, and possibly the GD65? BUT, I could be mistaking as I only use those multi for benching (see reasons above :p), and none of those boards to bench.

I've heard rumors that my board has the 2400 strap with a newer bios. I needed to update it anyways, so we will see. As of now, I don't have that option. I won't complain at 2133+ with 16GB, even if I can't go any higher.

I won't have any updates for a day or 2. I'm working on getting this 2600k back under water, and I have a new router to configure.

Now I can show how much of a noob I am when it comes to intel setups. I received my ram yesterday and tossed all 16gbs in. Played around with 1600 and went for it all by setting the memory multi to 21.33(ECS P67H2-A2) w/ timings 10-10-10-28. System boots up but I notice CPU-z 1.59 is showing 800 with FSB:DRAM 1:6. Yet Intel Extreme Tuning tool says the proposed speed is 2133. Tried a load of prime, wprime, and OCCT to no avail. I can't see anything else besides auto detect, DIMM which I've tried disabling, that should cause this. Any help much appreciated.

Hmmmm Honestly not sure. Take a pic of your bios settings.
