Remember when "low latency" was CL6? Pepperidge farm remembers.
Sorry, I couldn't resist.

It's a fairly niche product, especially considering the price. I know there are people obsessed with tweaking memory timings just for the pleasure of squeezing the last 0.01% of performance, so this will surely be a good starting point for them. What I personally find refreshing is the absence of obnoxious blinking lights on an obviously high-end product, I hope this trait will filter down to a more casual market segment. All in all, an interesting look at the beginning of the DDR5 life cycle.

Benchmark Scores need more GB, more GPU and more CPU.. at least can share all with my rig
i would like to see some ID shoot of PMIC during memtest and also when overclocked

otherwise why say "no thermal pad for PMIC" if you have not any info on how hot can it go?
i expect it can go easy on 70°C when stressed, but can it make difference from 70°C (no cooling) to 60°?

I remember being quite thrilled that I could run AIDA32/Everest/whatever it was called back then at 1.5-0-0-0 250 Mhz :laugh: Yes, I know 0 is an invalid/bugged timing, but it looked cool.

Hi,
Yuck
Only sammy for me.
Samsung DDR5 is incapable of running speeds this high and latencies this low. They have probably the most finicky DDR5 out there. After trying three 6000C36 gskill/samsung kits I don't think I ever want to use Samsung DDR5 again unless they release a new revision.

Hi,
I wouldn't expect 6000c36 to do much no matter what timings it had
6400c32 would be a much better chance luckily I won't be in the market for ddr5 for a very long time maybe by then ddr5 will fade and ddr6 will be around.
