Man, ram will cost you around 100, a good PSC kit. Check OCN Ram addict thread.

I know, but those are not too good for benching...check FtW420's reply in the other thread.
If you are serious into benching, you need ram with tighter timings at high clocks, and that's what good bin PSC chips can offer when you put 1.7v or more into them.

I see what you did there...

It's frustrating to know my RAM isn't supported. It's suppose to run @ 1600MHz, but runs at 1333MHz instead. I assume I can lower the voltage because of this. Is it worth lowering the voltage from 1.65V to 1.5V just because I can?

I see it's PNY but link your exact RAM kit.

No way, oc it manually...no big deal it's not in the qvl list if it works.
Set each timing manually and set the ratio to 16.00 and 1.65v vdimm.

that's what I was getting at...
nice comment @ ivanlabrie

lol I would never run 1333mhz ram, unless it can't oc to 1600mhz xD

This is my RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820178382

I'll get to OCing my RAM tomorrow.
