Samsung 2x4Gb Low Voltage DDR3 1600 kit (OCing to 2400+) Discussion - Page 29

post #281 of 2062
Thread Starter 
I know I promised to OC these modules in my x58 platform, but I sold my hardware in a matter of hours, so I have to tear down the system and ship my hardware out today... But, I will be testing them in my 2011 setup soon!

If you don't mind waiting awhile for the 2x4GB set to arrive, you can get it for $39.99 USD + Free Shipping to Lower 48 States from JR.com. Link

 

It says its "On Order":

Quote:
On Order - This item is on order from the manufacturer and we expect to receive it in shortly. Ordering these items will automatically prioritize your order. If there is an 'Expected to Ship' date, we either have a firm delivery date from the manufacturer, or the item is in stock at one of our nearby distributors.

 

Must be purchased using Paypal or their site to get it for that price.

Just have to buy 2 sticks separately...its the same thing.

This one is out of stock too, and this is also selling single DIMMS instead of 2 x 4GB

Is it fair to call this "budget ram?" Budget to me implies a fair price but at the expense of speed, quality, etc. This stuff seem to be a top performer. I wonder how other manufacturer's products will be when more companies come out with this 30nm technology and it is further refined.

It wasn't out of stock when I posted that...that's why I posted that. tongue.gif

And who really CARES that its a single stick instead of 2 in a package? It's still the same stuff.

Technically if they are not matched together they may not clock as high or may sometimes have difficulty running in dual channel mode because of individual variances in the sticks. When they are sold in a pair they are tested together. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Yeah they have a thing on these over at XS and they where able to get up to 2400mhz on there x79 platforms. http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?277635-Ultra-low-profile-1.35v-30nm-DDR3-capable-of-2400MHz.-Perfect-for-SFF-builds.
apparently someone got 2500mhz on the last page with a x79 system

yeah but really they are doing pretty good them selves so even if they need just a little bit more of bump in volts that would be good still since ive seen most get to 2133 easily over on XS forum with SB system running at 1.45-1.50v and SB-E hitting 2500mhz on 1.6v

TECHNICALLY speaking....yes. Realistically speaking...no, unless they are incredibly different part numbers (different IC's completely). So long as they're the same IC, they should overclock darn near the same. And they won't have any dual channel issues.

Considering that these only have the one type of IC...it won't hurt a thing using individual sticks, and ordering 2 of them (or 3 for tri channel setups, or 4 for quad channel).

I have never tested this, I'm simply going by what I have read in the past. So in your opinion, do you think that RAM sold in 'kits' is mostly marketing?

Not necessarily, because a LOT of RAM can have various IC's. These Samsung sticks, only have the one type of IC for now.

Example, my old GSkill Ripjaw 2x4GB CAS8 sticks (blue). Early adopters of that RAM got amazing results (good IC's). My sticks were all absolutely HORRIBLE (had 32GB worth of it). Couldn't clock past about 1680, no matter votls or timings.

But I have mis matched sticks in my DDR2 machines, and they all do very well. Especially the Samsung DDR2 1GB sticks (all are D9 sticks, but all were seperate pulls from OEM machines).

USUALLY, however, if you buy the same exact sticks (seperately, but the same sticks), they'll 99% of the time never have a problem in dual channel mode, 2 or 4 sticks. They'll also USUALLY not have a problem overclocking together.
