Should i stick with this RipJaw RAM which is rated email@example.com 1600 or get this RipJaw Ram http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231303
What frequency is your RAM at?
Well that'll give an idea of whats possible but it doesn't mean that you'll achieve the same results. The saying "your mileage may vary" is applicable here.
All hardware components will OC differently even if if you have 2 identical setups. One might be able to achieve 4.0GHz stable with a minor voltage bump where as then other won't be able to get past 3.8 no matter how much voltage you throw at it.
And I was wondering if someone could verify that 1333 is the official limit on the phenom II architecture. I can't seem to get my ram to run stable at any good timings @ 1600. As of now I'm running memtest with my RAM @: 1333 6-5-5-16-1T timings. Once that goes about 4 passes I'm going to see if I can tighten them up any more. And no matter what I do, can't get this RAM to run CAS 5 @ 1333.
