ASUS MIVE-Z RAM options

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So i overclocked my i7 2600k to 4.7ghz and when using my ram (corsair dominator gt 4x4gb 1866mhz @ corsair default 1.5v) its unstable. When i bump up the dram voltage to 1.65v it becomes stable but im running beyond corsair specs for the ram and hitting the max dram voltage for sandy bridge. I can drop the dram voltage to 1.5v for all 4 dimms if i downclock to 1600mhz to be stable as well. 2x4gb 1866mhz @ 1.5v is stable but thatd be only 8gb vs 16gb. Ill be using the rig for gaming. What would u guys do in regards to performance:

4x4gb 1866mhz @ 1.65v (max voltage for sb, above the corsair 1.5v specs)
4x4gb 1600mhz @ 1.5v (stable and running at corsair default voltage of 1.5v)
2x4gb 1866mhz @ 1.5v (stable and running at corsair default voltage of 1.5v but then id be only running 8gb vs 16gb)

4x4gb 1600mhz @ 1.5v (stable and running at corsair default voltage of 1.5v)
This. You won't notice anything in most applications at anything above 1600MHz unless you're editing or doing something of a similar nature.

Or one more option, trade in those Corsair dominator GT for Corsair Vengeance which is "designed for sandy bridge"? I dont see a difference in both of them since they are both supposed to run at 1.5v by default @ 1866
post #4 of 6
Dominator GT overclocks better, hence the higher price and label on them. I have 4x4GB 1600@1.5v Vengeance sticks if you do decide you want some Vengeance sticks instead smile.gif

arent the vengeance 1866 @ 1.5v also?
post #6 of 6
There is a 1866 @ 1.5v option for Vengeance, but like asuperpower said, if you aren't editing then over 1600 is a waste. You would benefit more with lower timings than higher frequency...
