Some feedback on a X58 motherboard (X58A-UD3R):

2100 mhz is a no go, tried 11-11-11-30, 1,4v vtt, 1,60v ram. Will boot but crashes within 2 hours of folding.

Currently testing 2000, 10-10-10-27. The problem seems to be the multipliers: i can only use 6x or 10x. The others wont even post. I tried to go back to 133 blck and up the ram. 1866 (14x) would not post, at any voltages i tried. Went back to using bclk to oc.

It is quite harder, i think, to oc them on x58. I'm stuck on using 19x, 21x or 23x as cpu multiplier. If 2000 doesn't work, it'll leave me with 23x as my only option. Will continue testing today.

You can go higher with your voltage, would say max 1.60v

Im glad i found this thread, these little guys run nice and cool in my rig, and the low profile helps with the airflow alot in the itx.

Also LagunaX, I like how you are one of the first reviews up in newegg lol.

Finally, got them stable at 2000 10-10-10-27 1t, 1,60 vdimm and 1,395 vtt. This leaves me better performance than the 6gb of patriot viper at 1680 7-8-7-22 1t 1,7 vdimm and 1,375 vtt. Now i'll move to see what they can do around the 1600 mark.

What's with this stuff ???

I have it at 2133mhz, 10-10-10-28 1T@1.5v on a vanilla Asus P8P67 that I picked up at MicroCenter as an open item for $62.

Rig "seems" a bit faster in Windows and some benches are up... slightly. But, are there any practical differences running the ram at this speed as opposed to 1600 ?

BTW, what am I going to do with my Corsair Vengeance ?

Got them stable at 1830 mhz 9-9-9-24 1t, still 1,6 vdimm and 1,395 vtt. Slighly better performance than at 2000 mhz due to the uncore running a little faster. The uncore speed is almost more important than the speed and/or the timings.

Sssssh! ;)

Yeah $99 WTF? Not saying they aren't actually worth closer to that than the "original" price either but what the hell happened exactly to make them jump that high? How could behemoth Amazon know or even care about such things? When I saw them at that price there I half expected to see it everywhere still in stock now.

Are these only this amazing with intel boards or can i expect the same clocks and times on my Bulldozer rig?
I think LagunaX or someone posted AMD results in the XS thread linked in first post? Also, for the record, they seem to really shine in Sandy Bridge boards not simply "Intel". One reason I don't have 16GB myself already.

Shines in my X58 setup i must say. Better than my old kit, and 12gb for the price is really hard to beat. i would have had to pay at least 50$ more to get a 2133 12gb kit.
