Besides, I'd much rather stick to dual-channel for the sake of overclocking and benchmarks.
I'm thinking I might just splurge a bit and get some monster sticks, like a set of Corsair Dominator Platinums, just for the hell of it. Anybody know if Samsung HCH9 IC's can clock well with a Thuban IMC?
Might be time to go water?
Check this out guys
I just grabbed a set of 2x4GB 2133MHz GSkill Snipers, F3-17000CL9-4GBSR far as I can tell they are Hynix IC's?
Set all RAM timings to auto,booted right up at 1333MHz with the same timings below,which I have raised to 2050MHz.
Have not tweaked it much yet,but here's where I am with stock 1.65v. Ran 3 passes of LinX before temps hit 60c with my rad laying on top of my case with 1 fan....lol. Going to get my cooling in order and unlock the other 2 cores,then dial them in. I am very surprised so far!
Will update when done. Right now I am at 1.4v IMC/1.65v RAM/1.56v(way higher than it needs to be) CPU
