Pros: Works perfectly without any configuration work at all. No compatibility issues.

Cons: A little more expensive than some others.

Other Thoughts: Works great with my ASUS P6X58D Premium motherboard and i7-920. I have tried other brands in the past to save some money, but I got burned with compatibility and/or stability issues. I've never had a problem with any Corsair XMS series RAM.


and,

Pros: Compliments my new i7 920 build nicely. 6GB is more than plenty for gaming, everyday use, and other fairly intense applications. Runs perfectly at the advertised voltage, timings and speed. Using the XMP with my Asus P6X58D Premium motherboard got all the parameters set correctly with no fuss and no other manual tweaking.

Cons: None. Have not tried overclocking (and don't plan to either) so no comments as to OC performance.

Other Thoughts: System:
Thermaltake Armor case
Intel i7-920 CPU
Asus P6X58D Premium LGA1366 motherboard
CORSAIR XMS3 6GB DDR3 TR3X6G1600C8 G memory
EVGA 01G-P3-1180-AR GeForce GTX 285 1GB video
Thermaltake Black Widow 850W modular PSU


but mine won't boot.

Anybody tried and succeded in using the above?

Double checked and it looks like it has to be (TR3X6GB1600C8D, or TR3X6GB1866C9DF)

What a pain. DRAM LED just stays lit and won't boot at all....:swearing:

Now I'll have to return and get the right stuff. Another few days...
Put it in the light blue slots, I was putting mine in channel B and was pissed when it wouldn't boot. took me like 2 hours to go DOH!

Check and see where they are installed in my pic below. Its backwards than most other boards.

haha, that's funny we almost have the same monitor too except i went with the led version.
Have you checked your ram slots? thats what was doing it to me, also check and make sure you have your eps12+ pin plugged in.
Do you get power on with no beep?

I am using the TR3X6G1600C8D kit. this kit has the heat sinks on the boards.
Also you need to observe that you have posted the model as TR3X6GB1600C8 which is incorrect I believe.

In any event, when I first fired up my system, the system would't boot as one stick wouldn't run with the default BIOS settings. I had to set XMP before it would boot.

I then set the BIOS to xmisery's OC settings and all is well. If you can get into the BIOS, set the mem voltage to 1.64v. (I have flashed the BIOS to 0604).

Finally got something stable at 4.2GHz. Not exactly proud of the voltage and temps, but it passed 25runs of IBT 8 threads @ very high. On to attempting 4.3!

~LL~ great overclock. I have the same cooler but have higher temps, probably because my Vcore is so high. I noticed you were using 1.3v on ICH, did you find this increased your stability ? My current 4.2GHz overclock has 1.2v on IOH but only 1.1v on ICH. Being the southbridge, I didn't think the ICH would have any effect on stability but things don't always make sense when overclocking...

I'm heading out to Fry's and may pick up a 930 to play with if they are selling them yet here in Phoenix... hopefully the latest BIOS supports it, probably will since it is basically same as the 920 but with a higher multiplier. Reverted back to the 0604 BIOS because the 0702 was causing the Vcore in Turbo-V to jump to 1.6v with any attempt to change it, and only way to lower it was rebooting. May have just been an weird thing with my setup but be careful if you use Turbo-V with 0702.

Thanks

I had a lot of problems getting it stable at 4.4 - the main problem being the QPI/DRAM core being way too high. Winding it back to the 1.325 gave me instant stability.

I need to now start winding things back to find my minimums, things like the CPU PLL and the ICH were set that high from the start.

Of note - I reseated my heatsink yesterday, more to see how the thermal paste had set it self after applying as per Noctua's instructions. I also had done a lot of work inside the case tidying it up so thought it wouldn't harm.

I ended up applying about 50% of what they specified and it is now running a couple of degrees less and the temps are a lot more evenly across the 4 cores.

The biggest thing I did though to get an additional 3-4 degrees saving was to have all four of my case side mounted zalman fans push air directly into the case, two of which are right in front of the Noctua intake.

As you'll see from my pic, the temps attained at 4.4 on air were pretty good, given the voltage when at 100% load, the max being 80c.

Are you running yours with hyperthreading on? If so, turn it off and try.

You just saved me a ton of headaches. "eps12+ pin plugged in ?"

I'm such a dufus. This fixed me right up. Was able to cancel my order with Newegg before it shipped.

Thank You!!!

xmisery, I'm now OC to 4.2 Ghz per your 4.2 Ghz settings exactly.
IBT temps = 73c,69c,70c,65c with ambient = 22c.
Prime95 FFT stable also, temps = 69c,66c,67c,63c.

Thanks again for the great service in providing the OC settings.

No problemo!

I may end up trying to do one at 4.4GHz, but, i don't know if it'll be worth it. Most aircoolers will have a difficult time keeping this chip cool at such a high OC rate. Only the high-end ones and the guys on water will be able to.

@DOM: OMG! 1.544v! hehe But she's on water, so I'm sure it's staying pretty cool.
