I miss that Gulftown goodness. I think I will get one of those off of AliExpress. I have fast ram, but am limited to 1000mhz by bclk. I match that latency with lower clocks, but read, write, and copies are down compared to that shot at 1200mhz.
I have an E.S. Westmere that clocks up to 4800, you just don't get access to anything over x10 mem multi. Before I was willing to trade memory performance for cpu MHz because I have Hyper MGH-E, but now I don't need max cpu performance, and I want to play with some ram that I have laying around, most of it doesn't work well with my z77
x58 is an effing trooper.
Like my old iPhone 5s lol.
