Mushkin Enhanced Support - Page 14

Sounds like it's normal (or at least, not uncommon) and just a restriction of using thermal tape instead of a paste or something with more grip. Unexpected, sure, but so far it doesn't seem to actually have any negative impact on the kit itself. Still great chips

That is a very good kit for i7, nice timings at 1600 and they overclock well.
You getting that kit from Xtreme Grafix?

While we're talking about the 998826 kit, I recently got the 998805 after having the 998826 in my wish list for a while. Since it's all ordered now it's a bit late to ask, but is there any difference between the 998805 and the 998826 other than the heatsink? I can't really spot anything to justify the $20 difference.

The only difference between the 996805 and 996826 kits is the heat spreader, they both use the same module.

That's what I thought. No regrets then. Thanks!

yah getting that from him coz in INDIA i can only buy from him and he is a very nice guy

he gives me very good prices and also suggested me this RAM from whole lot of mushkin and told me this RAM would be best for me in terms of OCing if i dont wanan go WC

so dude will this RAM be the best for me and also what VTT voltage should i use to get to around 1800 and also good timings?

I have revision 2.0 of this 870A-UD3 board, which, according to this page "deliver[s] native support for DDR3 memory up to 1866":

http://www.gigabyte.com/products/pro...px?pid=3517#ov

Initially, I had 1333, 9-9-9-24, 1.5v ram from another vendor, but it wouldn't run stably at that spec without 1.65v (although after reading some of your posts here, I'm beginning to realize that 1.65v is pretty normative for stability for > 1333mhz DDR3).

To be cautious, I'd prefer to get something else now. Which Mushkin RAM modules would you expect to run fastest and most stably on this new AM3 motherboard? Btw, I'm not in a critical rush as I have another system functioning well that I'm currently using, therefore, if there is something you think best that isn't yet released but will be soon, don't hesitate to mention that too, if applicable to 870A-UD3. I'm more concerned with rock solid stability and speed than cost at this point. The current CPU is a Phenom II X2 555 Callisto unlocked to a Phenom X4 955 Deneb.

Thanks very kindly in advance, Anton.

Yeah he's a good guy and an overclocker too

For DDR3-1800, try 7-9-7-24 1T, for CPU VTT probably in the 1.350V to 1.4V range. You may be able to get stable with lower voltage or it may take slightly more, all depends on your CPU.

9-9-9-24@ DDR3-1333 1.5V is highest JEDEC specs for DDR3, in theory that should work on any DDR3 mobo. If you need more than 1.5V to run CL9 @ 1333 then something is not right.

DDR3-1866 is difficult with any AMD CPU other than the X6s. Kits rated for DDR3-1600 are a better choice ATM.

A number of people are using the 996805/996826 kits on AM3, they tend to do CL6 to about DDR3-1500 or so.

The 996746 kit also works well with AM3
