I didn't have to raise VCCIO voltage (memory controler voltage), so I left it on default 1.087V.
If you have Ivy Bridge CPU then it's almost guaranteed that you'll be able to run 21333MHz or higher because 3570K and 3770K do have better memory controller than 2500K/2600K..
You just set your RAM speed to 2133MHz, set your RAM voltage and timings to recommended specs of your memory kit.
CHEERS..

Thanks for the comment. I'm mostly 95+ percent stable with my 2600K. I just want to be absolutely sure that I am as just once some games launcher crashed before I could play the game so I wonder. This only happened once. Seems stable. But I should be able to raise that one notch just to be safe?

Thanks.

that's the CPU needing a tad bit more voltage, or could be the cause.

You shold test your RAM stability and the best way for that (even better than memtest program) is running Prime 95 Custom test with 4096K to 4096K size problem.

Run Prime 95 and first choose Blend then Custom in settings meni.

Then set the numbers as shown on the picture and click OK.

Run test for 2 hours if it shows no errors then your RAM is stable 100%.

CHEERS..

Is the 4096K FFT size a proven one to test mem stability?

It's not good to just go by how stable it seems.  You have to run the recommended stability tests.  If a game launcher crashes, then it's probably very unstable.

Running the test now. I forgot that running ram at 2133mhz is an overclock and I always run stability tests when I overclock the cpu. In this case I just was under the assumption that SB chips can handle it for the most part. Might also fire up linx. That has always worked well for me. Thanks.

You're welcome.  Although, I admit that I was under the impression that you hadn't tested your CPU overclock yet.

Thats because I'm running my cpu at stock right now. Don't feel it needs an overclock. This 2133mhz ram is relatively new. Put in 4x4gb (16gb total) corsair Platinums. Use to run 1600mhz ram before at stock voltages or auto settings.Really like the look of this ram. Totally dresses up your rig. Anyhow 15 min into priming and no errors so far. My stock Vccio volt is 1.050 according to Aida64. Tempted to raise it to 1.100 just to be safe.

Thanks.


Edit: Ignore the Classy mentioned in my Sig.

I have to agree with not needing to overclock the CPU.  I just did it because I wanted to.  :)  I didn't feel or notice any difference after overclocking.

 

I found the full-on Custom Blend test (that is, not adjusting the FFT size fields) worked very well for me to find that I needed to increase my VCCIO for DDR3 1866 - which is my stock speed.  My VCCIO needed to be at 1.15625V.  lol  This is evidence that the memory controller in my 2500K isn't one of the better ones.
