They do seem to perform pretty poor for B-Die's tho. How hot are they getting? Are there temperature sensors in them that HWiNFO64 can read? B-Die hates temperature..

They don't provide temp sensors but when I was testing with 4 sticks I measured with my infrared gun and it was around 48/50C, I imagine that with only 2 now it's a bit lower as there's more room to heat dissipate, but still probably over 40C.
I live in a hot place, here's at this time of the year my minimum ambient temperature is 25/27C (at night) and around 33 at day, so yeah.
They are ADATA, which is an "OK" brand, they are way cheaper than a G.skill b-die so I don't expect them to be super good.
But on the review I found the guy was able to reach 4600 MHz CL19-24-24-42-2T @ 1.5V HCI stable 400%. Here: https://forum.lowyat.net/topic/4773221/all
(his model is AX4U360038G17-SR80 and mines are AX4U360038G17-DR80
, which I'll assume are not as good)
It's probably the IMC, I got a really bad
8700K, needs 1.32vCore to stable 4.8Ghz and needed to delid to get temps under control, which is horrible as we know.
I hope is the CPU and not something on the MB as I'm considering upgrade to a 9900KS at some time this year.
I might need some fan to cool off the RAM once I have 4 sticks back.
