    Those are some damn nice sticks. Can't wait until there is a set of 2x4GB sticks that can do that on Sandy Bridge.

    Thought I'd play with with the new Redlines on my Sandy Bridge rig. Stock is 1600 7-9-8-24. This was after just a few minutes of tweaking. I'm thinking I can get these 1600's to 2133. I know they will do 2000, but Sandy's dividers make this impossible.

    paulieg |1866 | 8 GB (2x4GB) Mushkin Redlines | 8-9-8-24 | 1.625V | 1.087VCCIO | i7 2600K

    I knew these sticks were capable of 2133. This is a 8GB kit of 1600's. Don't know what IC's they have, but Mushkin did a great job with these Redlines...

    Woah, wait! Had to try just one more run tonight. Got tras down to 24. Tomorrow, I'll try to tighten up Trcd. That seems to be the hardest thing to tighten with Sandy Bridge and newer IC's, especially PSC chips.

    Unfortunately, i can't get even 1800mhz at cl9. So just latency tweaking here :)
    *cpu voltage was meant for 4.3ghz, I forgot to lower it

    Can't find anyone but what kind of RTL is there on SB or does CPU Tweaker not show that yet?

    Thought this thread needed a bump. There was a time when overclocking ram was kinda big around here. Where are all of the ram tweakers? Is everyone just satisfied with stock speeds? Surely not, this is TPU.

    Let's see those screenies!!

    Finally got an i7 870 with a 12x ram multi. Running/testing my Super Talent Hyper 2133s at stock presently (8-8-8-24). Thought they had degraded until I remembered need a really loose TRFC at high freq. XMP is 110 up from 72 at 1333/1600. Will post some screenies later when I have some worthwhile ones.

    Bring it!!!!!!:roll:

    I haven't touched post #2 since May! :shadedshu Also have fun, that 12X multi really opens the gate for some pretty high ram clocks!

    Running them at stock 2133 1.65v now; gonna see how much higher can go before more screenies. How did Paulie get such sick bandwidth scores above? I wasn't aware there was that big a diff with SB if that's it. I'm presently getting like 17,500 read at 2133 8-8-8-24 1T. tRFC is pretty loose atm but that's not gonna cost me thousands...

    its a better memory controller for sure, specifically compared to what you will see with the same settings on your P55.

    Here is what I've managed with this ASRock A55 Pro3 and 2x2GB Kingmax DDR3 2200

    Formula350 | 2306MHz | 2x2GB Kingmax DDR3-2200 10-11-10-35 2T 90ns| 1.60V | CPU-NB@2224MHz 1.21V | A8-3850

    SANDRA Memory Bandwidth - Overclocked (3.58Ghz, NB 1112Mhz, DDR3-2306 10-11-10-35 2T 90ns) BIOS 1.00
    NOTE: The DDR speed is obviously incorrectly being read @ 4.61GHz and is only 1/2 that actually. Also they are not SO-DIMM lol

    Yeah but 17.5K vs 25K at 2133?

    At some point last week when I was testing with my new CPU I got a 21K read score and for the life of me I can not remember nor figure out what I was running at and how that was possible. Going back over old screenies from 1600 6-6-6-6 and 2000 7-7-7 I never bested 19K. WTF lol?

    I'm getting excited about ram again, especially with new 30nm sticks coming out, like the new Samsung low profile/low voltage sticks, so I thought this thread was worth bringing back for a bit. I'll post some benches on the Samsung sticks tonight.

    Got the A8-3870K to review, but the A55 Pro3 died so had to get a new one. Opted for the Gigabyte A75-UD4H. Overclocking-wise it kicks ass, have managed DDR3-2445MHz so far, with 2500 getting to Windows Loader (skipped testing 2475 for now). Write performance of the board is horrible though. Both at 2300Mhz, the A55 would get like 12GB/s in AIDA64, but the best I've been able to muster out of this Gig A75 is 9.2GB/s :(

    Yeah I want some of those 30nm dimms esp now that I can't run my 4GB Hypers and play BF3 but I'm on P55 and unsure...

    This is the best I could do with the Sammy's with 16GB installed. I'm sure with just 8GB, I could tighten the timings further, and move up to 2133. These speeds/timings seem to be quite stable too, as this system has been crunching all day with no problems, no BSOD.

    Wait...Decided to try just one more maxxmem run. Finally got 2133 stable enough for a run, with 16GB installed!!

    With 4 sticks you can try CR2 to make it more stable and go for 2200+ ;). Performance won't drop so much on SB.
    I wish to play with these samsungs on AMD boards but I can't find them anywhere in my country ...

    Woops. 1.44v for 1866 CAS 8 1T, and 1.53v for 2133 CAS 9 1T. I can only get 2133 stable enough for benches. I think it's simply because I'm running 16GB. Tonight, I'm gonna pull out 2 of the sticks, and see what they will do then.

    I know, but for some reason, I just hate running 2T. I can't really explain why. It's the last thing I want to concede. I know, it makes no sense. If you want a set of the Samsungs, I'm sure one of us could grab them for you, and ship to Poland, if you don't mind the shipping cost.

    Thanks but I think I will see them in some time at our local distribution. I think I could even find them somewhere but most samsungs are labeled as oem memory and there are no product numbers to check.
    For now I'm testing G.Skills on PSC that I got for ~50$ with shipping. Reached 2500 9-11-9 1.58-1.6V so can't complain. Tweaking memory is one of not many things where FX cpus are really good ;)

    I noticed that when I had a 8150, for a very brief time. Really good at handling high speed memory, but I was really disappointed with everything else.
