Sorry, missed a filter in there.
In all honesty, I think they use the same RAM Chips except for little timings and/or testing that proved them worthy of the QUAD Channel Specs.
I have used B-Die Ripjaws Vs rated at 3200 16-18-18-35-2T that fails to work as a quad. Not to mention 4 sets of them. I can run a stick at 3200 13-13-13-35 and not fail a test. Binned 4 sticks out of 16 from the same model mentioned. But, they won't work as Quads.
Popped the heatspreder to reveal the ICs. B-Dies confirmed that most people recommends and tested to work perfectly for this platform. Yet again, they won't work as quads at 3200 16-18-18-35-1T.
^ Kit in question.
It could be a platform limitation or some nitty gritty stuff going on.
I run them all at 2666 14-14-14-33-1T which for 4 months now, didn't have a glitch.
