The ram I have ordered is 8GB G.Skill DDR3 PC3-17000 2133MHz RipjawsX Series (11-11-11-30)

I have read since ordering that ram faster than 1333MHz is not really beneficial or supported by the i5.

Hoping to put a 4.5MHz clock on it and maybe a little more if I'm lucky.

Cheers

It's been my experience that running memory at higher than 1600 effects stability, higher overclocks and therefore performance. In other words you'll see better performance running a higher CPU clock than a higher memory memory frequency. I always recommend spending the extra funds on an SSD vs premium memory for those reasons and for even more noticeable performance gain. If you still have the opportunity to return them I would, if not, the good news is you can tighten the timings considerably with that kit when running at 1600 to say 9-9-9-24-1t. I'd say 4.6 is not out of reach running them at that speed where 4.2 may be your max at 2133 but it's hard to know for sure with out testing/benching your config. GL

I have these. The G.Skill F3-17000CL9D-8GBXLD Ripjaws X 8GB (2x4GB) PC3-17000 (2133MHz) DDR3 Dual Channel RAM, 2x240-pin DIMMs, Non ECC Unbuffered, 9-11-9-28, 1.65v, 6 Layers, Lifetime Warranty. There is a variation with slightly different timings, the F3-17000CL9D-8GBXM 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3-2133 (PC3 17000) DDR3 Dual Channel RAM, 2x240-pin DIMMs, Non ECC Unbuffered, 9-11-10-28-2N.

Top ones are red with fans and cost more than the second lot, blue, no fans. I have both in two different PCs. The only place I see a difference to 1600MHz is in synthetic benchmarks like 3D11.

Considering my 124 problem benching over 5050MHz and owcraftsman's comments on stability I'm going to have to do a round of testing with the ram at 1600MHz.

Never could get the Intel Gigabit Ethernet Driver: 16.8 to work on the P8Z68-V/Gen3
Driver always crashes, no clue why. Win 7
post #416 of 1418
Intel Network driver version 16.8 has a lot of reported problems at intel forum (mine is disabled everytime I restart my computer). Better to use version 16.7 which is stable.

Is there a way to update the Intel Gbe rom?
post #418 of 1418
16.8 fails on the initial boot after installation, but is stable after that in reboots in both installations where I've upgraded to 16.8.

Hi all
I have this cold boot issue on my Z68 Deluxe, I do use a multiplier by 48, can i disable the PLL voltage to be still stable, to what multiplier do I have to go down 46, 45?
I am desperate for a fix, it started 3 days ago (running for 4 months okay with occasionally boot issues) and i always have to clear the CMOS and to load the OC BIOS again.
