Stop spreading this its incorrect. You wanted to probve yourself right and didn't listen to the people actually running it fast. On any new AMD chip they clock fine. FM1, FM2, FX. They don't oc as spectacularly as intel, but its close.
A10 uses 2133 quite well, oc'd it wants even more. This ram can do it on my Asus board.
The Asrock FM2 itx was having mem clocking issues as well, I am really wondering if asrock has made a mistake somewhere, since the fm1 itx board clocked mem pretty good (2550mhz)
Make sure you have the latest bios, my last one (asus) helped get 2400 multi to actually boot/test properly.
I would buy more sets of the 30nm if I had use for it. It performed just a hair under my 2133, 2400mhz capable mushkin's, for just over 1/2 the cost, and its low profile too. No point in heat spreaders on ddr3.Edited by Yeroon - 1/15/13 at 1:41pm
