For those of you who don't know, there is a particular ram kit that seems to be loved by those who want a lot of performance on a budget. I am of course talking about the samsung low profile 1600mhz memory (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147096). One might look upon the specs and notice that they are rather poor. However, there is a catch. The low voltage of the ram give you plenty of overclocking head room, and the 30nm ram manufacturing process that samsung uses allows for some pretty amazing overclocks such as this one.





For a while OCN has had a long discussion about the wonderment of this ram through this thread here https://www.overclock.net/t/1210482/samsung-2x4gb-low-voltage-ddr3-1600-kit-ocing-to-2400-discussion , but I think it is time that the samsung memory gets its own club. smile.gif

Have an overclock that you want to show off? (Click to show)
To submit your memory overclock, please take a screen shot with your OCN name somewhere on the page, CPU-Z showing your memory settings, and show that prime 95 has been running for 4 hours on blend. I would also like it if you can run a maxmemm benchmark and post your submitted score.

Alternatively, you can also run Intel burn test on max settings for 10 passes. It will take up a lot less of your time.

Do you have a batch of ram that overclocks extraordinarily well?...Please tell us! (Click to show)
For those of you who don't know, overclocking can sometimes come down to winning what is known as the silicon lottery. The idea is that no two computer parts are exactly the same. These little differnces can have a major effect on how a particular hardware bit will overclock. You can have something that overclocks extremely well, or something that can barely even run at the advertised specifications. This applies to CPUs, GPUs, Ram, and other things. Rest assured, Samsung has done a fantastic job is making memory that can pretty much get a great overclock almost all of the time. But sometimes there will be a one in a million part that will overclock so well that it becomes worth it's weight in gold. Getting your hands on a one in a million part is just plain dumb luck, but what if we could improve those chances for you?

When companies make parts, and in this case ram, they produce their parts in batches. Let's say we have two batches, "batch 1" and "batch 2". While one stick of ram from batch 1 might overclock slightly different than another ram stick, but they will be somewhat similar. On the other hand, if you have a stick of ram from batch 1 and another stick of ram from batch 2, their overclocking potential will generally be completely unrelated to one and other.

That is where you, the member, can help out fellow members. If you have something that is really spectacular, show us the batch number by taking a picture of it and uploading it to this thread like so.


I will put it in the google docs spread sheet, for all to see.

For those of you who are searching for some good overclocking memory, you can go to a microcenter, or some other store that sells this ram and try to match the batch numbers to better your odds at winning the silicon lottery yourself.

Happy Cherry Picking and good luck to those who seek to win the silicon lottery thumb.gif
How to join if your ram has samsung ICs, but is not the classic miracle ram. (Click to show)

Samsung memory is not limited to low profile green ram. It can take on many different forms, and can sometimes perform a lot better than the basic cheap low profile ram we all know and love.

Samsung has two types of memory chips. One is called HKY0 which is used for the low profile ram, and the other is HCH9 which is used in all sorts of other ram.

If you know/think your ram has samsung memory chips, please upload a picture along with your OCN name on the page and any CPU-Z screen shots that have to do with your memory. Please double check and make sure that when you take your screen shot that CPU-Z mentions the part number. That way I can try to make a link under the google docs spread sheet (sheet number: HCH9). If you are feeling generous, please link me a page to where you bought the ram from. It would help out a lot. thumb.gif


MEMBERS



Notes: I would like to add a list of places where you can buy this ram from other countries. I know that often times this stuff may be hard to find or locate in other parts of the world, and I would like some of our international OCNers to provide me links so that I can add them to the list.

You can join the club, but I need to see a prime 95 run in order to confirm that your OC is stable.

I forgot about linX, but I have never used it before, so I am not sure if what you are showing of proof that it is stable. I personally know it is stable, but when I add your overclock, I want to make it so that people who are thinking about buying this ram will know for sure that these overclocks are 100% stable.

That being the case, let me ask you. How much time on linX would be enough to prove that the ram overclock is rock solid, while at the same time being short enough where it wouldn't be too much of hassle to a person who wants to join. If you can do that for me, then I will be happy to add that rule as a secondary option to prime 95. smile.gif

Why not title the thread Samsung Green Memory Club, the actual product name? It could get confusing for people who aren't familiar with this product when everyone refers to it as a different noun, Wonder RAM, Miracle Memory, etc, will probably get more Google hits too. I guess it's still obvious since it's Samsungs only line of RAM, but yeah, just saying.

I've been using the DDR2 version for like 5 years now and it's served me very well, the Samsung DDR3 is high on my list for ram choices when I finally upgrade cpu/motherboard lol. On that note, does anyone know if a normal waterblock would fit on this RAM?

Because it't true name is samsung (product number here). To me that is boring. So I went with the OCN name for it.

At the stock 1600MHz speed of the memory, whats the lowest voltage you guys are getting? I just got this memory along with a new Z77 ITX board. So I'm really working on getting my rig as efficient as possible. I don't see a huge need to overclock the memory since I'm pretty casual now, just enjoying the mini-ITX and some occasional gaming... my board on boot set the ram at 1.575V which I saw that and went nuts! I've got it at 1.370V right now and wondering how much lower I can go...possibly <1.350V?
