From what I can glean from the few AMD users in this thread, this Samsung can run @ 1600 8-8-8-24 1.5 v with ease, but it has problems when trying to hit 7s? What kind of latency are people seeing with a rig similar to mine ? I have to go to town tonight (Phoenix) and I might just poke my head in Fry's. If I do, I might not be able to resist grabbing a set of these for $39.99. I have been thinking of doing a RAM upgrade for while now, but was hoping to get into some 7CL 1600 stuff. It is awful tempting to get 16 GB of this for the same price or less than 8 GB of some 1600 7 Cl.
Also, in the not so distant future I will be going FX (probably after Piledriver hits but ya never know) so the higher speeds (1866 CL8? drool.gif )with moderate timings will be more beneficial in that case than they will be to me with my current Phenom2 setup I guess. What say ye with AMD systems using this Samsung WonderMemory? Should I go for it? thinking.gif
Edit to add" @ihatelolcats: I see you have finally gotten your Samsung, and since your rig is as close to mine as I have seen using this memory, what results are you seeing? I see lots of Intel rigs getting down in the mid 40s for latency, I would be tickled pink if I could get down somewhere in the low 50s.With the best stable settings I can manage with my Corsair 4 GB (1626 8-8-8-24 1.7v NB 2448) is around 59 ns latency.

My stt did 7-6-6-19 though sad-smiley-002.gif
@ Jagged..I'd say go for it..It's better-than-average at least :thumb.gif:

Wow, nice numbers, thank you for posting that Smuckley (goofed and thought Blameless posted that). You should submit that to the AMD MaxxMem club, I think you will be near the top ten with those specs. Definitely top ten in the non-FX rankings anyway. You have the better IMC with your 960t compared to my 555, but it looks like getting latencies in the low 50s and ~11 GB/s throughput should be a reality with my rig. I really hate going into Fry's, there is just a weird creepy feeling to the Mayan temple themed store here in North Phoenix, but grabbing some of this $40 RAM will be worth it I guess. If I stop and get primed up with a few brews before I go to Fry's I will probably be coming home with two packs...

Edit to add: While I was typing this my kitty cats brought in a quail and laid it on my feet. Not sure if that is a good or bad sign....

North Phoenix Fry's:
381

I didn't realize that the Mayan temple thing was at more than one Fry's. Here is the San Jose one:
448

I know that the North Phoenix Fry's was originally an Incredible Universe, then Fry's bought them out, maybe the Mayan thing was from IU? Creepy non the less.

The specs of this RAM are rather mediocre at the factory settings , it only shines with manually OCing it. Since most laptops don't allow for that sort of thing the laptop sticks might not be as stellar a performer as it is in enthusiast desktops. It is low voltage though, but I don't know how much difference that would make as far as battery charge life is concerned. Maybe a little.

Ok, I went to the Temple of Doom last night and grabbed a set of the 8 GB Samsung Wonder RAM for $39.99. I am thoroughly impressed with these little buggers. I wrote a bit about it here. Anybody wondering if these will perform well in AMD rigs can put those concerns to rest. They don't suddenly make your AMD rig have 24 GB/s throughput like an Intel machine, but they definitely outperform anything anywhere near their price range. I was actually able to get them to run @ 1958 MHz, and I was never able to get anything to run above ~1600 with my 555 before- including my "2000 MHz" Corsair 4 GB set. Thanks for the encouragement Shmuckley, +rep! thumb.gif

Edit to add: For grins I decided to try and run the 8 GBs of Samsung along with my 4 GB of Corsair and again I am amazed. Manually setting the timings @ 1632 Mhz 8-8-8-24 and auto on the voltage, it fired up @ 1.65 volts and seems stable. although I have not tested it yet. The amazing part is that the Samsung pulled my Corsair along and the total 12 GB is running better than the 4 GB of Corsair by itself!!!! It is a little bit slower than the Samsung by itself, but this is well within what I was hoping for, so I may stick with 12 Gbs now. WOW is all I can say.

8 GB Samsung @ 1632 Mhz 8-8-8-24 1.35 volts

440

4 GB Corsair 2000 Mhz @ 1632 Mhz 8-8-8-24 1.7 volts~~12 GB - 8 GB Samsung & 4 GB Corsair 1632 Mhz 8-8-8-24 1.65 v


440440

You can see that I was running ~2400 Mhz NB with the Corsair, that is the top stable speed I could get. ~ 2700 appears to be stable with the Samsung. I will test this to make sure.

Apparently J&R has these back in stock, but for $47. Has anyone who ordered them when they were $40 and back-ordered received any notification about them shipping or being back in stock? I have two "Backorder Notice" emails, but nothing else.
post #597 of 2062
i havent got any notice but when i first got an email about them being on back order it was days after reading on here that someone else got an email from them about it being back order. so u prolly wont get an update from them for a few days depending on when you ordered them.

Well damn, I only set these in the BIOS and they worked right off the bat.

CPU: 4050mhz @ 1.46V
RAM: 1800mhz at 8-8-8-22-27-1T timings 1.53V
CPU-NB: 2925mhz @ 1.4V

I'll be running Prime95 to test the settings.

Well my third core errored within 8 minutes and the rest of the cores stopped at almost 2 hours. I'm not exactly sure what caused the errors, I increased the clocks on all 3, more testing in the upcoming week and time to work on my buildlog.

I had zero errors with:
CPU: 4ghz @ 1.46V
RAM: 1600mhz 8-8-8-22-27-1T @ 1.53V
CPU-NB: 2800mhz @ 1.33V

I finally get to post some results! I am running VCSSA at 1.05v, so I didn't have to go to 1.10v for these modules to run at this speed.

I've gotten 32Gb (8x4Gb) of the Samsung 30nm modules stable at DDR3 1866 9-9-9-28 1T with 1.55v:
