OC'ing Gskill 32gb 2400hz ram for Benchmarking

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi all,
I bought 32gb (4x8gb sticks) of Gskill 2400hz ram not long ago and I would like to tweak them to improve benchmarking results (3Dmark 11 and 13, Heaven 4.0 and Valley).

The sticks are rated for 2400hz and timings are 10-12-12-31-2T at 1.65V and work well at those timings.

I have no cooling on these ram sticks except case airflow.

Any suggestions where I could start tweaking using a ASUS Rampage iv extreme motherboard with an i7 3930k at 4.9GHz at around 1.4V?

Thank you in advance smile.gif

As G.Skill's 8Gb 2400C10 modules are based on Samsung 4Gbit memory ICs, you won't be able to get more than 1250MHz out of them. The only thing you could do would be lowering timings at DDR3-2400 to 10-11-12 or 10-10-12.

Alright, I tried 10-10-12-31-1T and ran 5minutes of linX no problem.
Which timing is worth trying to lower from here?
Is there a better program than linX to run short term stability on ram?
Thanks for your input smile.gif

All of them, test to see which settings perform fastest with a benchmark test. Some times looser timings perform better even though timings are extremely low and stable.

Cheers

What benchmarking programs do you suggest for ram?
post #6 of 6
Anything that gives you a solid number or value to compare the different settings to.

AIDA 64 is a common one for bandwidth benchmarking, or HyperPi, it tests how long the computer takes for certain calculations so you can use that to see which takes the least amount of time.

Cheers
