Adata XPG Gaming series V2 2000 + AM3..... Very pleased !

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I stole the Dual kit of this ram (2x2G) in a very good deal, but was a bit hesitant before buying.
Going for a decent ram, I could have Gskill ECO 1600 CL7 as one my choices too but here the price for Gskill stuff is quite outrageous !!
anyway, Since I dont see a lot of people here buying Adata rams, I thought I would share the result of my tweaking with this precise kit ! this kit was damn cheap ^^
its the 2000mhz version of this kit :
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820211466

BTW, the max ram freq on mobo is 1800(OC)!

First, I got it stable 1600 6-8-6-21 @ 1.6v (stock vlotage on the mobo) and considering that Voltage range is 1.55-1.75 It needed a quite low voltage !
Since my mobo can also do 1800 (OC), so I went further and achieved 1792 7-8-7-24 @ 1.6 (stock volt on the mobo again).
That was max oc for my mobo, but The ram can go way beyond it and I know that now.

But the thing that was interesting was the lack of need for voltage change and that despite being rated 2000 CL9 @ 1.65v XMP, it reached 1800 CL7 @ 1.6v which is impressive I guess.

If my mobo wasn't restricted to 1800mhz, I would have oced beyond 2000 to see how far it can go @ 1.75v . I have heard it responds quite well to voltage increase !

Good one. Have you tried this timing 6-8-6-20-24-1T?
For some strange reason MaxxMEM 2 preview pulls my info wrong.

I will try it now. I haven't added any voltage yet. might go with 1.65 to see if it responds well. these can take 1.7 easily and that small amount may actually help a bit

A-DATA seems to make good stuff. I'm very happy with my RAM(A-DATA 2200 8-8-8-24) too, slightly better than my SUPER TALENT 2200 8-8-8-24 kit

I hadn't tried their products untill now, so had not background of them. But for now these XPGs are doing quite well and nearly on par with famous brands. I might stick to Adata, as their products are much cheaper here compared to Gskill or even corsair ! Have to give an arm and leg for them ^^

I tried that but it failed . Couldn't get it stable at 1666 6-8-6-20-24 and would have to reset Cmos. Since I had already tired 1666 6-8-6-21-27-1T, I Tried a higher Freq Combo and it paid off better.

tried 1792 @ 7-8-7-21-24 -1T 1.6v and it turned out nice.
Here adding voltage didnt help, but did worsen the result !!




I think This is the best I can get on my current mobo. Though It did improve quite abit since the first timings and latency went down quite abit ^^

Just curious - why are you running Windows 7 32-bit?

ah, good question. Cause of a damn program that hasn't got a 64-bit version and doesn't work on 64bit OS . That software is essential to my work, so got no choice. But I'm using a kernel hack and the whole 4gb is usable ^^ .
