Naturally every now & then one slams into a giant exception to any rule.
A 3930K system I built for someone recently was maxed out with 64GB GSkill TridentX (8x8GB DIMMs). I was stunned how easy it was to get the
oc setup at the target 2133 RAM speed. No effort whatsoever; during all the testing, not a single BSOD, just some odd artifacts within After Effects
which required the CPU to be dropped just one peg from 4.8 to 4.7 (it passed all standard stress tests and benchmarks at 4.8, including an hour
of P95 1344/1792, but AE is more demanding than any of those, gobbling up 40+GB RAM to render one my colleague's visual effects shots).
Note it's a pretty loaded system aswell re PCIe devices (Quadro 4000 and two GTX 460s).
I put it down to two factors: the excellent ASUS P9X79 WS mbd, and the sheer luck of my friend for whom I obtained a 3930K that played so nice,
with such a low vcore to boot. I was so impressed I'm building a replica system for myself, though the oc is not yet sorted out (no idea if my own
chip will fare quite so well).
