ALSO, all the drive strengths. s939 days RAM was often time made more stable by understandng where to lower and increase dram strengths. I personally don't know much still, even after all me research.
I couldn't agree with you more But it seems that most, not all, people that act like the know, either Really Don't Know or it's looked at like a type of Fricken Taboo or soemthing to talk about! LOL It's really kind of ridiculous!
So I feel ya man! I'm working on a source right now.... So hope fully I can get some answers. I was recently told that "Drive Strengths" are more 'Dimm Specific" and NOT "Speed Spicific"... But it's funny that Changing my Drv Strths has affected certain speeds... I'm still experimenting, trying to find a patern with it all. I'm mean there are Really WAY TO MANY options in the Advanced Dram Configuration Menu for them NOT to have an affect... Especially like Dram ODT (On Die Termination).
It's value is in "ohms". It can be used to change (increase) the signal quality for the Ram. As DDR3 Speeds increase, there is something called "Signal ringing" that can be corrected with ODT. But "HOW TO" is the question for us enquiring minds...
This is what I'm talking about.... this is the response that I just got from the source that I was talking about.
What???? It's like people are either affraid to spread the wealth of knowledge or they really are completely positive abuot something and don't want to risk their reputation... IDK man...

For 24/7 honestly the best approach is the KISS method keep it simple stupid and for 24/7 use you don't need uber timings.
Set the primaries and voltage and leave the rest alone. Whats holding back your IMC is your timings, most d9 with any shread of stability save 1m top out around 1720 with C6, need to drop to c7 for higher.
