More Vcore, put your CPU termination to 1.26-1.28, MCH at 1.26. You are running small FFT test I assume?

That's correct and it is by design. For ram that requires more than the motherboard default of 1.8vdimm for DDR2 the SPD is coded so the ram is seen as as a slower speed that would allow the motherboard to post. The user then has to go into the bios and manually set the ram speed and the vdimm to the recommended settings to utilize the full potential of the ram. If they didn't do this the motherboard would NOT be able to post as the SPD of the ram can only set ram speed and timings, not vdimm. Faster DDR ram of PC-3200 and higher speeds that require more than the default 2.5vdimm also do this being seen as PC-2700 or PC-3200 as needed for it to post. DDR3 does this as well, but I don't know the specs for it off the top of my head.

In other words, you have Overclock.net on your side. So regardless of what memory you install, there are many people who can make the setup very easy.

Besides, what this reviewer doesn't know is it's motherboard-dependent. No memory can be guaranteed to POST at its advertised speed. It's sometimes up to the end-user to properly set it up. When I installed my G.SKILL PI's, they POSTed at 1066MHz. But I adjusted a few key things in the BIOS and now they're at exactly 1200. Also, the timings were 5-7-7-15 or something too, so I just changed them to 5-5-5-15 (which are the advertised timings), and now those are the timings I have.
That would be me eggheaded reviewer that knows nothing about memory timing but its ok I'll have some fun with it is all that matters.
Really were all just here to pass some time and have some fun

So how do you like the G.SKILL it got you a stable 4.0 ?
Would you buy it again or go with something else ?

Most of the reviewers on Newegg try to do everything without asking for help (most of them are completely on their own). But you're at a major advantage because you are on Overclock.net.

Anyway, my overclock was stable at 4.0 GHz before getting the new memory. As a testament to how awesome this motherboard is, my previous kit isn't 100% compatible with EP45-UD3P (here's the previous kit). It functioned and never gave me any major problems, but it just wasn't able to accept its advertised timings. The timings were supposed to be 4-4-4-12, but I could only get them to do 5-4-4-12. Every time I changed that 5 to 4, the motherboard wouldn't POST. It didn't matter what the other settings were in the BIOS. I worked on that for about a month solid and finally gave up.

But this G.SKILL kit was an absolute breeze to set up. Here's my post about it (I made this post 2 days ago, immediately after booting up for the first time with this memory):

http://www.overclock.net/10652131-post15670.html


As you can see, I am in love with it. My entire system just feels a hair faster too, almost as if it's more stable with this memory since it's perfectly compatible with this motherboard!

But, I was also told that I would've had pretty much the same results with that Kingston memory. But the reason why I settled upon this G.SKILL kit is because it's 1200MHz at stock which means that I might be able to get 1300MHz or better out of it. Plus, I was looking for the best of the best. hehe And, of course, I got it for $110 shipped from The Viper!

So any time I see somebody who has an EP45-UD3 series motherboard looking for new memory, I am always going to hope that they can afford this kit because I'll be very happy to recommend it.

Keep pushin that VCore my friend. What is your current VCore?

On a side note, anyone ever got a "Cheat Detected" notice in wPrime? I just got it, quite amusing.
