Even memory benchmarks don't change that much with tighter timings on Intel, if I recall it's the AMD side that thrives on tight timings of memory. Anyways, to continue forward, you are going to have to add more voltage. Try keeping the timings locked and then overclocking the RAM speed. I have never found memory sticks to be perfectly stable with forced tighter timings but I am not a great RAM clocker. My thing is CPUs and GPUs.
CPU Vcore, then I think VTT for IMC, and potentially DRAM Voltage too.
Yeah but I'm wondering why would timings produce a BSOD 101, can't find anything on google that relates the two. VCCIO and DRAM voltage are already at 1.2V and 1.7V, respectively so no worries on those. The highest speed I can get without failing HyperPi/SuperPi/IBT is 1866MHz. I was able to determine that by locking the timings at 11-11-11-30-2T. Now my goal is to tighten those timings to the extreme, I don't care about how little it affects the system, it's just I overclock what I can
My system can only boot with these ultimate tight timings 8-10-6-24-2T at any given speed. But that doesn't mean it is already stable at those timings, it can only boot. Lowering any of those timings from those minimum boot settings, will render the system in a non-bootable state.
I can respect that. In my opinion, I think its best to start from scratch CPU included, and determined each components individual maximum first.
Here is a pretty thorough guide on the subject:
To answer an early question I was still trying to get a consensus on, yes, making the RAM overclocked can essentially destabilize what you thought was a stable CPU OC.
Best of luck to you. The voltages look within reason for what you are trying to do, and don't forget, RAM is way harder to OC than a Sandy CPU. You may not even physically be able to, even with all that voltage, but I totally understand why you would try.
