Picked up G.Skill Trident X PC3-14900 2x8GB (timings 8-9-9-24 1.6V). Very nice ram indeed.
But I'm having a problem
When set at 1T, it would crash after about 10min of gaming. Changed it to 2T and so far steady, but I do get a little lag here and there, not like the old ram I had (Corsair Vengeance PC3-15000 2x4GB (timings 9-10-9-27 1.5V 1T)

Any idea's as to why it crashes in 1T and not in 2T?

What voltage?

I bumped it up to 1.63 and 1T, ran the memtest86+ like you said for an hour and a half with no issues. Even ran a couple games, small Tekkit/Minecraft server and had no issues. I'll most likely bump it up to 1.65 and run the same test's.

With those timings, its 1866 (which is what the ram is normally). So by keeping those timings and raising the voltage to 1.75v, it'll bring the ram up to 2133?
I thought changing the timing was to reach higher speeds. Im basically wanting to overclock the ram just a bit to help out the APU a little more.

There is a high possiblity that you will not get stock timing at 2133, but you need to start low with your voltage and test it until it is stable.
I would start at 2133 9-9-9-24-2T with 1.65v and see if it is stable. If not bump the voltage up by one bump and try it again.
If it is stable try 8-9-9-24-2T see if it is stable. If not bump the voltage up by one bump and try it again.
If it is stable try 8-9-9-24-1T see if it is stable. If not bump the voltage up by one bump and try it again.
It is like ocing a cpu one step at a time.
