No, don't bother. I tried the v7.1 Corsair 2000 that's offered now and I couldn't get them above 1850 @1.65v. i7 limit.
No one makes the good chips anymore. The best I found are these PIs @6-8-6-20 60 1T. Although they will only go to 1650, the timings are the best available now. A little faster then the 7-8-7-20 60 1T Mushkins I have. The Mushkins will go to 1750, but these timings are faster then the 1750 setting @7-8-7-20.Edited by letsgetiton - 4/2/11 at 8:55pm
