...not sure about the label 'golden', though I in fact have run that mem-kit slightly

...I went in fact in the opposite direction for the SB-E
...using strap125 seems to lower vCore requirements and has a few other advantages, even though that meant lowering the mem from 2400 to 2333 (some of which I get back by BCLK to 127 etc)...but what genuinely surprised me is that I could take that 10
kit and run it at 9
at strap125 w/NO problems now (meaning same low VTT, VCCSA, DRAM-v etc)...
...judging by Physics scores for 5GHz for both strap speeds, the loss in MHz is more than made up by the gain in tighter timings - though I am anything but an expert in mem timings....haven't even tried that at 2400 / strap100 yet for the Sandy-E...though in the Ivy, the 16GB replacement kit of the same G.Skill TridentX 2400 mem is now running at 9-10-12-30-1 just fine instead of 10-12-12-31-2
...really, I',m just trying to get a little taste of IB-E --- now Edited by Joa3d43 - 5/22/13 at 3:13am
