Just Got My Samsung Ram :3

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
My Samsung Ram came about 4-5 hours ago tongue.gif. It's currently sitting @ 1600MHz 11-11-11-28 39 2T. I am going to OC it a bit and see how far I can push it. I am just really happy it boots @ 1600MHz, since I know C2's have issues with 1600MHz +. Here's a picture of the ram below, just looking at it, you can see how small it is, but you really can't tell until you see it in person tongue.gif, it's half the size of my OCZ ram lol.

I used Gaussian Blur to make the ram stick out more tongue.gif, as well as some photo editing to make the picture look more clear. It doesn't look the best, but you of seen the original @__@

ALSO!!!! A BIG THANKS!! TO EVERYONE WHO RECOMMENDED ME THE RAM!!!!

I GIVE YOU A HUGE! BROHOOF! /)

WHIP YOUR HAIR WITH ME!!!! tongue.gif

I've seen people get that ram running at 2133mhz at cas10. Good luck with it smile.gif

What timings/voltage do you recommend for 1866+

1866 8-8-8 1.6-1.63v

I'm trying to see if I can nail down DDR3-2400 on these sticks with less than 1.5v. I've gotten to the point where at least it doesn't fail instantly. I know I can get it stable with higher volts but I don't want to break the ram either... even though it did only cost me $40.

This stuff is pretty incredible.

That kind of voltage seems entirely overkill and I don't see how those sticks would last long with that voltage.

It depends...

Sometimes RAM suppliers take the best RAM and rate it at a lower voltage for lower frequency when it runs exceptionally well @ 1.5v. We don't know the true voltage that kills most DDR3 RAM at this point so it depends on your need for speed. If you want to push the RAM voltage and don't mind losing $40 then go for it. As independent testing has shown there in no significant system gains in real world apps with increased RAM frequency above ~1333 MHz. but if it works for you, have at it.

OC'ing is an journey filled with much disappointment and frustration so remember it's a journey not a destination and enjoy. thumb.gif

JEDEC specification states that all DDR3 kits must be able to handle up to 1.975V without incurring permanent damage (i.e. instant-frying).  Granted, degradation rates may vary the higher you go, and RAM stability may not be there the higher you go either.


Don't doubt what redhat says though.  He knows his ICs very well and if it wasn't safe to run these ICs at the 1.6V he recommends then he probably wouldn't recommend it.  If I'm not mistaken it was him or gappo that first notified me of the increasing degradation rates on PSC ICs once you start pushing them over 1.7V.

I doubt many people are actually interested in instantly frying their DDR3 RAM @ 1.9v... My understanding is 1.7v is the nominal safe limit for most DDR3 RAM unless you have some out-of-spec ICs. If however the LV RAM really isn't designed to run 1.7v max, then it may not like the higher voltages for long. The current LV DDR3 RAM looks like the precursor to DDR4 RAM designed to run @ 1.2v.
