Need help to identify EVGA DDR3-2400 C11 8GB sticks

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I bought 2 packs of 2x8 of that RAM.

It sadly, came with a wrong XMP profile, that doesn't match its own specs and make my mobo unstable (in the sense it keeps guessing at every reboot wildly different secondary and tertiary timings).

Still, playing around with it I could slightly tighten its timings, and it worked a bit, but when I tried to tighten more, it errored on the second pass of MEMTest 86+ 4.2 (it passed all tests on the first run, and gave about 30 errors on the second run).

I also could make it work at 2600, but it became slower somehow (too lose timings?)

Since I am new to overclocking in general, I didn't mucked around voltages.

I am trying to identify it, at least to use correct XMP for 24/7 usage, but I can't figure what it is... saw lots of people on internet parroting it is a rebranded GSkill according to Microcenter Employees, but that looked like more as rumour spreading than any factual information.

One of my attempts was use the 2 public benchmarking databases I know and look into similar stuff, one was userbenchmarks, but unfortunately they moved on to only allow easy comparison of dd4, and tried passmark, where the closest RAM as possible is Mushkin 994123, something that doesn't really help.

The heat spreaders DO resemble RipjawsZ, and the performance and specs seemly match slightly RipjawsX or Sniper.

On userbenchmarks it also matched partially some single-sided TridentX, but the 8gb stick is double-sided.

Any ideas? I don't want to disassemble it, and from what I heard from other people that seemly actually disassembled it, they scrubbed away all serial numbers and markings from the ICs.

Pretty sure those use some type of SK Hynix IC, but figuring out which one is tough with no markings.

What Hynix ICs can do this:

DDR3-2400 @ 11-13-13-31 1.65V 8gb stick. ?

I saw some reviews where people immediately ruled out MFR because stick was dual-sided, there is no dual-sided MFR-based sticks?

I'm not sure why they would say that as I have some Team Xtreem 8GB double-sided 2666C11 sticks that are MFR, which is a 4Gbit/512M IC. However DDR3 MFR is out of production, so it would have to be AFR, BFR or DFR. That spec you listed could be done by AFR or BFR for sure (I also have some Corsair Vengeance Pro 2400C11 8GB sticks with either type).
