Been using mostly trash tier memory on my DDR4 platforms myself, due to memory prices rapidly rising shortly after I built my X99 systems and only coming back down recently.

Will probably grab a good set of Samsung stuff for the Zen2 setup I plan on building this summer, but in the mean time, my five year old kit of Ballistix Sport 2400 CL16 is still holding in there on my 5820K:



~30% faster than the XMP profile, mostly from timing tweaks.

Anyway, there aren't any LGA-2011v3 CPUs that will have significantly better light or moderately threaded performance than your 4.4GHz 5820K already has and the gain you'd get from faster memory will be modest. I'd recommend tuning what you've got to perfection and riding it out until your next platform upgrade.

Thx for the replies. What kind of overclocked memory speeds are people with Broadwell-E's getting?

You could move the the E5-1660v3 unlocked 8core (5960X) I just picked one up for $265 on fleabay and the seller still has some. You would also get 40 PCIe lanes. Testing running at 2666 vs 3200 it shows a slight difference and does help with min fps. Also you need to raise the uncore as it helps with performance. both my Xeons have had no issue running 3500mhz on the uncore.

With my very little experience so far with X99, get the cache/uncore to run at least a couple hundred mhz faster than ram at a minimum, and within 300mhz or so of core clocks for best results.

Hmm, that's interesting. I have a stack of Ballistix Ellite 2666 16-17-17-36 (1.2v) sitting here... think that might clock up better than my g.skill/sk hynix stuff? They are 8GB DIMMs vs 4GB, so I'd be up at 32GB vs 16GB total (not that I need more than 16...).

Edit, this review looks promising, though he only tested 2 dimms, vs clocking all 4 up.

What's the part number on those? I looked up the BLE4C4G4D26AFEA and the results reviewers got with them back in 2015 make me think they are using the same (Micron) ICs as the Ballistix Sport I've got.

If this is the case, they probably overclock rather poorly in terms of clock rate, but they should tighten up very nicely timing wise.

Hi,
I'm not greedy with memory clocks I'm happy if it runs at rated speed especially with 3200C14 now working

Buy a used E5-1660 v3 on eBay. They are unlocked. Try to find a J-binned serial number.

what is significant about "J" serial numbers?

Later production run, produced after the "L" serial numbers so they generally overclock ~500Mhz higher; basically 1 generation CPU improvement.
