Searching the best DDR3 Mem for 775 Extreme OC

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,
I'm from Germany and new to Overclock.net. A few days ago I started serious SuperPi 32M benching, tweaked my OS, everything was running fine. Could get a few nice scores (for example 22 Hardware points with my Q6600@Singlestage), but my Ram isn't exactly what I need to get to the top5. As I am probably getting a nice load of LN2 next week, I need better memory modules.
At the moment I'm using AData XPG G+, specified for 2000MHz CL9-9-9-24 and running at 1580MHz CL6-7-5-16 or 1680MHz CL7-8-6-18 (1,72V 32m stable).
I don't wanna buy twice again, so I guess I better buy the best ones currently available. Also, I think I won't buy them new but in one of the common marketplaces.

Some additional information:
  • The chips I search should be able to do 1600MHz CL5 and about 1800-1900MHz CL6 (up to 1,75V 32M stable). No loose subs, for example I don't need PSC's with 1900MHz CL6-10-6 or something.
  • Mustn't be Hynix chips (don't work on Rampage Extreme)
  • 2x2GB will do I guess?
  • Don't have to go up to 3000MHz, I basically will have to operate them between 1400 and 2000MHz.

Show me what you got biggrin.gif

Hypers are good with the REX.

If you want something cheaper, I'd take a look at getting something with micron D9GTR. Maybe some of the first DDR3 Crucial Ballistx or g.skill sticks with the black heatspreaders.

2x1gb is what you want for D9GTR.

Thanks. Already had a nice collection of modules to choose from, BBSE, selected PSC's, Hypers etc.
A few minutes ago I found a kit I couldn't resist, it's a red Corsair Dominator 2x2GB Kit, specified for 1866MHz CL7-8-7-24, but we all know they do much more, right.^^ Chips are MNH-E Hypers, think I will have some fun time with that. :3 Cost me about 55€, that's okay I guess.

I doubt they are able doing Tapakah-style-timings (900MHz CL6-5-5-15 is pretty legendary, I suppose that were highly selected Mushkin Redline or something), but it will still give me a nice boost.

Lately, I made a comparison between 1333MHz CL9 and 1700MHz CL7. Got me over 30 seconds less in 32M with my E8400.
