For Sale: For Sale: G.Skill 2x2GB DDR3-2000 Trident RAM LNIB - Page 2

post #11 of 14
rated voltage isn't a reliable way to tell ICs on Trident - there is BBSE rated for 1.6V, there are PSC rated for 1.65

2000 9-9-9 Trident versions with Elpida Hyper are rare, but they do exist (can get you a pic) - those are either early week 092x samples when G.SKill were putting Hypers to create hype or are week 111x-112x stuff when G.Skill seemed to have performed an IC clearout (including their last BBSE and PSC)

I specifically mentioned the voltages of this kit (taken off the module label in the provided picture) as being 1.65v because that is one way to distinguish the ones with BBSE from the ones with PSCs, which will instead be rated for 1.6v.
This, of course, is the most reliable way to tell them apart.
I would expect these to have "1040" for the 5th thru 8th digits of the serial numbers if they are PSC.
I don't think that they will. I believe that these will most likely show "0640".
I would also be very surprised to find a DDR3-2000 CL9 kit to be "0690" (Hypers). I would expect Hyper based kits to be no more than CL8 at those "low" clocks.
SMK,
We don't need a pic of the label if you are not confortable showing it, posting the 5th thru the 8th digits of the serial number will provide enough info to determine the ICs used by GSkill on your modules.

there are 1.6v BBSE

0640 = Elpida non-Hyper
0650 = Elpida (seen on blue PCB Tridents)
0660 = Elpida non-Hyper
0690 = Elpida Hyper



P.S. @OP founds have been transferred.
EDIT; lol Sam-ninja

By my serial pic they appear to be Elpida non-Hypers. (0660)
They have since been purchased. TY coolhandluke41

Thanks for that info. I wasn't aware that the there were Hypers in DDR3-2000 CL9 anywhere, so that's good to know.

As I re-read my post above it appears that I am saying that the voltage is the most realiable way to tell which ICs are being used. That was not the way I intended it to read. It would have been clearer if I had included a colon (smile.gif after "This, of course, is the most reliable way to tell them apart.", as I was referring to what followed in my post, which was the discussion of the coding used by GSkill.

I guess that while the voltage rating may give you a hint, based on what you've shown me, it clearly is not an abosolute. Appreciate you guys sharing that info. As it turns out, my guess of them being BBSE was correct, but based on how I arrived at it, it could just as easily been PSC. I'll have to keep that in mind...plus I've bookmarked that link to the BBSE thread for future reference. I"m sure that it will come in handy at some point.
