XMP doesn't work also. This is the first step that I've tried and it doesn't boot. Manually changing the timings to 6-8-6-24-2T and 1.5V is the same as using XMP anyway. Yes, I know about the timings not making just a little impact on SB but I have very good kits so why not OC them to the max, right?

Bump!

Just change the CAS...I'd bump it up one. The rest of the timing you can set on auto. Though first I'd make sure your memory is getting the rated voltage. My memory for instance is 1.6v, but my mother board will always auto set it to 1.5 and that will not always POST. So I have to set it to 1.6v before I start running my OC and then it is fine.

The CAS is the first value right? Well, my memory is rated at 6-8-6-24 but I'm using two kits 2x2GB so when I set it to Auto my motherboard sets it to 9-9-9-28 so yeah it's weird.

Did you try if two DIMMs work? That would ideally require less VCCIO. And I honestly believe that bandwidth is more important than extreme latencies.

Download Thaiphoon burner. It contains a SPD table database of thousands of RAM kits. It has helped me a lot and learned me some things in DDR3 overclocking.

And to be honest with you. That is a very extreme kit. It's rare to find a kit with CL6 and 1600MHz. Try aiming for CL7 which is more common then.
