meh bsod as im typing blah im gonna try 10-10-10-24-1t and this is the gskill value ram
at 1.6 volts.
Nice overclock btw.
Wtb better memory lol
Try giving them 1.7-1.75V. Try everything else first, and then if you absolutely have
to, then loosen the timings.
You might be able to find some of these Super Talent Project X's, or Speed series. They do come up for sale, very infrequently, but they do. I have dibs on the only set of Project X's I know of that may come up for sale soon (gonna need 8GB for 8 cores of BD under full load to prevent bottlenecking the cpu, I'm sure). But I can tell you, they don't go for cheap.
If anything, expect to pay anywhere from $200-280 for 4GB...which was a bit more than they went for new (on the top end figure). You nearly have to kill someone to get them to relinquish any ram w/ Elpida Hyper's IC's. Unless they recently invested in a Sandy Bridge, where they can't make use of them.
You can find them (Hypers) in a few different EOL models. Like older Kingston Hyper X's, Corsair Dom. GT's, Mushkin Redlines, a few models of A-data, and as mentioned earlier...2 models from STT. It's pretty easy to spot Hyper equipped sticks. They are still the only sticks you'll see rated at really low timings over 2000 Mhz. Eg: mine are rated at 7-7-7-21 @ 2000 Mhz.Edited by Lucky 13 SpeedShop - 8/11/11 at 1:55am
