I dunno about the memory controller on the older x58 boards.. What board is it specifically? The supported memory speeds might give you a hint of the achievable speeds on this set of RAM.
Worst case is you get 1600 and nice timings, the main thing being you don't know what you can get till you try it! thumb.gif

For all the people that say without benchmarks or compressing lots of files etc to see memory improvements with timings/fequency i can say that i do see a rather mediocre increase in bootup time going from 1600MHz 11-11-11-28 to 1866MHz 9-9-9-24, i used to see a very small noticeable increase in boot time with a mechanical HDD and Core 2 Quad + DDR2 ram with the last timing tightened more.

For reference the DDR2 RAM i was running was overclocked from 800MHz 5-5-5-18to 850MHz and timings of 5-5-5-15, which resulted in the Q9400 running at 3.4GHz thumb.gif

DRAM Voltage: 1.35 V
VTT Voltage: 1.076 V (left it on auto)
tWCL: 7
I just want stability and longevity out of the sticks - should I change the VTT or CR to 2T ? I'm on an ASRock Z77 Extreme4-M. I would like to keep DRAM voltage at 1.35 so if these settings are not recommended should I lower frequency to 1600? CPU: i5-3570k running at 4200 MHz.
Thanks in advance!

Thats fine if stable, personally though I would tighten those timings to 9-9-9, you might need to increase the voltage a small amount though probably not.

Just got a 4gb kit today. Works fine at 1.5vm 2299mhz.

However, I wanted faster, it won't boot past 2200.

I already had mem running at 2200 so back it goes.

Runs pretty good on my R4E. Runs a little slower than the G.Skill 2133Mhz I was planning on getting, but the timings are tighter so I guess its about equal. Worth the money.336

For those of you running these Samsungs at 2133 9-10-10-28-1T:
  • Was tRAS of 27 and below not stable?
  • Is your motherboard an Asus? (model, bios)

My P8Z77-V is letting me run these all the way down to 2133 9-10-10-14-1T (@1.55v), which absolutely boggles my mind. And 14 vs 28 makes me worry about a potential 2x bug somewhere on these Asus boards...

I have this kit running at 2133mhz cl10-10-10-28 1.58v folding stable.
I tried running 27tras but it crashed during f@h, didn't try to up the vram more and tweak timings some more though.
I should try tweaking to get some bclk magin on my I7, cause my max multi so far is 51x frown.gif

Unlike some luckier ppl on this thread, I needed 1.59v to get [2133 9-10-10-28-1T] stable in Prime 27.7 . In comparison, [2133 10-10-10-28-1T] was a breeze at 1.50v and possibly lower... The depressing part is that Prime can fail in 2 minutes at settings where HCI Memtest will easily pass 1800%+ coverage.

Have you guys running at 1.5v+ felt your ram modules? at 1.4 mine are quite warm to the touch. 1.5v+ must make these pretty toasty I imagine.

I'll go check mine out, I've had them at 1.59v and have been folding on the rig for a few weeks.

 

[edit]

 

Mine are cool to touch.  They do get cool airflow from a 120mm fan on them though, not sure if that is making a difference.
