I didn't test the timings yet.

On the same board I run my memory(4x8gb Redline Ridgeback 1866mhz 1.35v part#992073) at 2000@1.4v /w stock timings of 11-11-11-27-38. I haven't done much in the way of trying to get more out of them than try 2133@1.575v(wouldn't post.)

That isn't going to happen. IF you are going to run that ram at DDR3-2000 clocks you will need to bump voltage back up to the manufacturer's default setting of 1.65v.

Note that those aren't my suggested settings, but are the manufacturer's settings.

Don't fear the 1.65v. smile.gif

I think the bottom line here is the fact that he has the wrong modules for that specific board. He should not have to worry about playing with a specific voltage/frequency to find stability. You either buy the correct modules or you will have to sacrifice speed/stability in order to get them to work properly without any errors.

I was trying to solve the speed problem first, then discuss about the voltage.

Well I don't know yet I've read many topics and discussions people saying "That's fine how is it gonna damage", some other said "No that's out of the safe range Intel has specified for it's I.B chips".

I'm cool with that as long as it's not damaging anything.

The majority of performance ram specifically designed for Ivy requires 1.65v so this voltage level is not something obscene, it is perfectly fine for 24/7 usage...but yes, sometimes you have to use that really extreme feature set that comes with motherboards called the BIOS. He doesn't have to "play" with it...he just needs to set it to what the manufacturer states to use.

And it may very well be that the ram is defective, but without testing it at the stated timings & voltage you'll never know.
