Thats pretty impressive, I have a x5660. It's pretty hard to get 3 sticks of good ram so if I do get 2 8gig sticks I'd have to spend a lot more money just to get 1 more stick because they are almost always sold in pairs. I guess I could just run in dual channel

Crucial Ballsitix Tactical Low Profile

SPECIFICALLY the Low Profile sticks. Yellow... low profile... 1.35v... These are just as good as the elite's.

For some reason, that Tactical ram costs more than the Elite on Amazon here in Italy. That's why I decided to buy the Elite one. 60€ vs 75€

I have a asus rampage III gene and it supports up to 2200 on the ram. I could just tweak the ram settings down to suit me. Or should I just straight up buy lower voltage rated ram?

I have an Asus Rampage II Gene, which by the manual supports up to 2000. But, as I said above, I'm running my new ram @ 2166 without any stability issue.
But I should also say that I didn't achieve this speed with my old G.Skill, and I tried different versions (Trident, Ripjaws, Ares)

Again, I have more stability now with 8GB sticks than with every 4GB sticks I tried before

QPI/VTT 1.375Volts

RAM 1.68Volts

I have 1 more 8GB stick of Corsair Vengeance Pro 2400 CL11 RAM and 1 more slot in the motherboard. Its supposed to support triple channel with 4 sticks. It does report triple channel with 4 sticks of other ram but I can't get this last stick to work at 10x multi for 2000MHz. It'll work at 8x multi for 1600MHz. Just.
Tried 1.47Volts QPI and various loose timings but barely boots into windows.
The above runs IBT very high stable. QPI of 3000 or less doesn't help.

Any ideas? biggrin.gif

@AlxMrx

Seeing as you use LLC, do you notice any voltage spikes?
And are you going to try switching to offset mode?

This may prove interesting as I have Llc on and offset. Or dynamic voltage as my board calls it. Voltage & heat does fluctuate under full load but hard too see or measure with out a multimeter. Should I leave LLC and offset on at the same time?
post #11676 of 11953
I think its only the synthetic benchmarks which may draw more voltage when using offset/adaptive mode. Like mentioned in the skylake/kaby lake overclocking guides.
I didnt think it would apply on x58, but when I did some IBT while using offset mode, the voltage did increase by a bit, maybe 0.05-0.1v. Cant remember exactly.

I'm still running 6GB's of RAM and I game at 2560x1440 144Hz and never ran into any problems. Fury X stock and X5660 @ 4.2GHz.

Yes.
Stick with 3x8GB and never look back.
Go for 32GB only if you actually need it (rendering/picute editor stuff).
I'm saying this as a LGA 1366 6 slot/18GB user.

Yes, already switched to offset, it's set to 0.25V. Voltage stays between 1.208 and 1.416, but only goes up there under stress or benchmark, in gaming usage I got 1.38/1.40

Well, I had 6GB but when BF1 was out I couldn't play it, that's why I decided to increase it

We'll I made do with 12GB for years so 24 is going to be plenty. I can drop back to 1600MHz if I find I really need it for something.
I might find a use for them all in a X79/X99 in a later project.
So you run 6x3gb?
