Typically, RAM doesn't want to go any higher than what it is spec'd for when you buy it. Going by what is in your sig, you have RAM that is guaranteed to run @ 1333mHz, 9-9-9-24 by the manufacturer. So that means it should run stable up to 1333mHz with those timings.
With this in mind I purposely bought 1600mHz RAM with the intention of running it at 1333mHz and tighter timings although I'm still fighting my RAM trying to tighten it up. 2x4GB G.Skill Sniper 1600mHz 9-9-9-24 @1.5v [stock ratings]. My BIOS did recognize them at 1600mHz right away but set my timings to 11-11-11-28 on auto... ewww. So, through trial and error, I've been able to drop my speed to 1333mHz and timings to 8-8-8-22 @ 1.515v on a NB OC of 2.6gHz @ 1.250v. I've tried using 1T but fail P95 almost instantly, even after upping to 1.6v. I've tried running 7's on 2T but also fail P95 almost instantly. Just wondering if anyone else out there is using this RAM and if so, what timings/voltages you are able to get out of it. I'd hate it if I am at my tightest already, I'm jealous of others with 6-6-6 timings...
