GSkill 2133 First time Intel Ram OC

post #1 of 7

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231468

this is my ram. What should I do with it ? Try and tighten the timings up a bit ? I'm running out of stuff to tinker with and overclocking my ram sounds like fun. I used to be strictly AMD and I would just go as tight as possible with timings. Anyone got any good guides/advice on where I can learn about this ?
this interest was sparked btw by my finally running wei and seeing I did not get 7.9 in this area. Means absolutely nothing I know but now I'm curious to learn, which is never a bad thing.

if you have time to help I'd appreciate it !!

I would start out trying to drop the timings to 10-11-11, then 10-11-10, then 10-10-10 and so on.

Here is a guide.

Tighter timings of course are always better, but on Sandy Bridge as compared to AMD stuff higher frequencies seem to pay higher dividends. Regardless, those sticks should do really well. I'd keep them at 2133 and try to tighten the timings one-by-one from there if you can.

I'm positive they can get you to 7.9

did you try increasing the voltage along with it (1.65v is max recommended)? try bumping the VCCIO a little from stock and see if that helps.

had those rams for a while, set your dramV to 1.65 and timings to 9-11-9-28, thats the max you will get out of them without going higher on the V

I'm running this set 24/7 @2133 10-11-10-27-2T VCCIO 1.125v (DDR voltage 1.575v)
they won't do :9-11-9-28 (1.65v)
