Otherwise, there are quite a few LOLz involved:
- 1500MHz spec on Ivy Bridge IMC, good luck finding capable one
- 1500MHz spec on a mini-ITX board
- CL12 won't even POST unless you run a special BIOS version.
- Hynix CFR of "above average" quality will easily do 1500MHz CL12 at much, much lower price
- Memory pot (whatever it is) is a useless toy that only jacks up the price since both KC and Corsair have to make extra profits on it. If you extreme enough to have a need for memory pot, you either own one already or have no problems buying it separately.

So you don't want a set? tongue.gif There will be a limited production run sold on the webstore.
  • The newer stepping chips are getting better and better. Out of the last 20 or so I have tested I found 1 3000MHz a handful of 2933 and the rest were 2800.
  • Unfortunately not all Z77 boards are tuned for 4Gb based ICs. Some boards run better than others withe 4Gb ICs the ITX board just happened to be one of them.
  • C12 posts on almost all of the boards I have tested. Early Maximus V boards did require some manual tweaking for C12 but they fixed that now.
  • How many sticks do you have that will do 12-14-14 @ 1.65v?
  • Most of the guys that buy this kit will most likely end up trying to OC further and over 3000MHz you really need to start cooling the ICs sub zero.

We weren't allowed to take any pictures or post any screenshots of them, though wink.gif
Yeah unfortunately the IMC was the limit. biggrin.gif

There is a premium for binning memory especially at these speeds. To be perfectly honest it will probably end up losing money for them.
