5930k @ 4.5 1.355v 1.95 vrin LLC 50% 77 celcius max temp usually ~71 or less with a Supernova 1260mm radiator
Ram 3000 mhz 16-18-18-38 2t 1.3v from 2400 mhz 15-15-15-35 2t 1.2v
Timings won't go lower even at 1.38v vdimm and no way 3200mhz is gonna happen.
The vcore is not too bad?
ALso ring/cache will only go max 3750 mhz with 1.15v
SA is low 1.0v and i/o 1.0v
Are the memory timings descent?
Motherboard is MSI x99a Godlike Gaming.

Now trying 15-18-18-38 2t @ 1.4v Forgot to mention its Kingston Fury 2400 15-15-15-35 1.2v has Micron chips. Nope Timespy froze. Wont do 16-16-16-36 @1.4V either

4500 wasnt stable went to 1.296v 4375mhz 6c cooler was hittimg 82 in y-cruncher tests.

Is 16-18-18-36 timings not bad for 3000 mhz speed @ 1.3v?

Got 18-20-20-44 at 3200mhz but was worse latency and only 2gbs copy more and .1 more volts

Settled for 3000 mhz cl16-18-18-36 1.25 volts
And 4.4 for the cpu.
Thanks for all the help fellas

Now i'm at 3200mhz cl17-19-19-38 2t 1.3v are those {ok} timings at that speed? I even had somewhat stability at 3333mhz but I could'nt get it stable, probably needs moe vdmm or Digital i/o voltage or both, had the vdmm at 1.4 when trying 3333 but could have needed more i/o up from 1.1 to 1.15. SA is at 1.1v and does'nt like much higher. Keeping the cpu at 4.4/3.7 ring cache. Its Kingston Hyper X Micron B-die ram rated for 2400mhz 15-15-15-35 @ 1.2v btw.

3000 cl16-18-18-36 1.25v or 3200 cl17-19-19-38 1.3v
Cas latency at 16 3000 =10.67
Cas latency at 17 3200 =10.63
Except i'm thinking 3000 cl16 would be better since I can lower the other 3 timings also 16-18-18-36
Which do you think generally will give the best performance?

Hi I love to mosh! Well sometimes heh DRI rocks I want to get a tattoo of the slam dance guy in their logo and that thrash zone album is the best, one of my favorite albums of all time. They just played a show a half hour away from me and I missed it.

Now I got em down to 16-19-19-36 at 3200 1.36v
