looking for Gskill Eco OC'ers

got a set of 1600 7-8-7-24 1.35v eco's on the way


mobo is a biostar ta890fxe

i was wondering what's the maximum voltage i can run 24/7 and what kind of oc to expect? i know each set is different, but roughly how much voltage for 1600 6-7-6 or something similar?

if you have these, post up your oc

You're going to have to put your hopes on Elpida BBSE ICs in this. Biostar TA890FXE doesn't work well with PSC ICs - most ECO use PSC, there are some though that have used BBSE which should not only work better (or actually work) but OC a bit better. On most other motherboards ECOs can reach 6-8-6, the BBSE ones (there's really no way to tell except removing heatspreaders) can do 6-7-6.

well, hope i get lucky

worst case they'll still be a nice upgrade at stock timings/speed

do you know how much voltage i can put through these things? they're rated for 1.35v so i'm not sure if its ok to run 1.6v+?

Guess so; haven't seen a single ECO kit that doesn't reach at least 6-8-6 though I mean, I have two kits, both at 6-8-6. Haven't tried 6-7-6... but might be possible. 1.6V is about the sweet spot for voltage, above that scaling stops doing so well; sometimes you can scale well up to 1.65V but only on certain kits. At least you're not like me and I'm forced to run 1.6V due to BIOS limitations.
