Believe it or not gigabyte boards aren't compatible with all ram when it comes to really pushing the clocks, they are choosy especially with particular overclocks and only few ram types achieve that without much of a hitch. My former socket 775 gigabyte board could get me a max of 25% overclock with Kingston ram but when I replaced with Cosair dominators I could get a whooping 50% overclock and only needed to up the vcore in the same setup without struggling to tweak the ram settings.

I choose to run mine at 1600 at cas8 just because I see no real world performance or gaming performance at 2133 cas10. Plus the ivy imc is rated for 1600 so it puts less stress on the imc.
Sorry guys for those who have samsung, I can't seem to be able to edit the pole to add your samsungs but your replies are just as valid. Link to the rams?

I am particularly concerned with gigabyte as I wanted to know what rams really work well with these boards without much of a hitch especially the z77 boards. As we speak I have already sold my 2 month old Kingston HyperX blue extreme rams and wanted flawless overclocking this time.
