Ram OC sucks on X99 i would stay away from it, quite pointless, just focus it all on raw multiplier.
i manage to get my 5820k OC to 4.6ghz with 1.30v and 4.8ghz with 1.4v i could do with less voltage but just lazy OC, also did 4.4ghz cache oc with 2800 xmp ram, 3000 ram oc was tricky so dint spent time on it.
my other build i was able to do 4.4 ghz with 1.35v and 4.5ghz at 1.4v with 4.0ghz cache but only 2133 ram, both similar performance in terms of memory bandwidth gb/s.
i replace a R5 with sabertooth the R5 it far too granular this is truly to get the last bit of mhz as you can get and intended to go hand to hand with N2O OC.
R5 is not worth time and money i can do the same OC on Asus A-X99 as i can on a sabertooth and no one is the wiser ;D i just like the VRM active cooling of Sabertooth and overall design.
