bclk is not much help with Haswell according to most overclock guides and does'nt really need to be touched until all else of your o.c is done,then its recommended to basicly wring out the last few Mhz.For people going to extreme levels maybe,everyday o.c not so much.

Im guesing you dont understand how the blk strap works. 125 strap will change the blk to 125... But it isnt actually 125 for the things that can be neg effected by high blk, like the pcie lanes etc...

To the op... I dont see whats wrong with 1666 ram speed, it will run fine if native 1600 or even 1333.

Seriously if your overclocking these chips without using the blk strap... Your just doing it wrong.

There is nothing wrong with 1666 except it wasn't stable.

Then up the ram voltage a bit. 1666 isnt going to be hard to get stable nor is it even close to stress the IMC.

What are you settings?
Post a pic of your bios settings or type them.

I understand how it works with the straps,however the general consensus in threads and guides I've read so far is its not really usefull.
