The CPU/IMC was made and tested to the highest standards. The motherboard is also probably OK. But most retail RAM is another matter, and the fact it has XMP settings proves the manufacturer's standards are kind of low. XMP profiles could not be faster than the JEDEC profiles if the quality standards for both were identical.

I'm not 100% sure I follow your logic. Are you saying that because manufacturers include an XMP profile that has faster timings or clock speed than what the RAM chips were designed for, that constitutes a "lower standard" ? XMP is nothing more than a convenience tool to permit the lazy or un-initiated to overclock their RAM without having to pick individual settings in the BIOS. I don't see how it translates into a manufacturer quality assessment.

And memory OC locked boards like B75s so it runs at 1333 but with XMP 1600. There's absolutely no way you can set 1600 by yourself on B75 boards

His logic fails him ...

Good news, everyone!


I'm running 8-8-8-24 1600Mhz @ 1.38v 15 hours stable smile.gif
I guess it just needed a little bump.

Nice! Lol @ 0.03v bump. Sometimes that's all it takes. =)
