CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 100

Purpose:
"I want this thread to exist so we can all shear the beauty and power of most overlooked component in the rig which is" the memory,show what we use on daily bases and bench-marking, help others to make the right decision when buying RAM ..and since some of us can't stop buying/blowing more money on ram a place to show what we roll
wink.gif


Rules:
If you have more than 2 sets of RAM (DDR2/DDR3/DDR4) ;
-post pics of your memory sets
- make, model number
- your favorite bench and 24/7 RAM
if you willing to go extra mile;
-post the picture of bare module (heatsink off)
-post your Maxxmem,Super PI,Aida benchmarks

Also a few other things to keep in mind for first time memory subzero
* Dont worry too much about CPU on subzero it probably is not required in most circumstances, CPU on air/water should be fine for tight legacy ICs subzero, I can train/bench 2700 6-9-6 with CPU on water no problems
* Get a baseline on air that you know works but is on the edge, when you mount all your gear subzero make sure that baseline is good, this will save you alot of time
* When you are pulling down you will often need to retrain memory, sometimes around 0 degrees, sometimes around -30, but expect some not exacts as you are pulling down, going into bios and changing 1 memory timing will force retrain
* Use mrc disable when you have your settings locked in, disable mrc re-train on boards that support it, this will give you longer more reliable subzero sessions, more time benching, less troubleshooting
* Watch how much grease you have around your ram slots, if you are having issues, clean the ram with circuit board cleaner
* If you want to train CAS6 TWRRD_DR must be 5 or looser; I may be possible to train cas6 with TWRRD_DR 4, but so far I have not been able to do it

Some nice kits there coolhandluke, I'll have to get all mine in one spot for a pic one of these days. The writeup might take a while.
That is a cool case, I have a Mushkin case that came with the copperhead kit, but only holds 3 sticks, & the gtx2 I would want to keep in it are too tall.

Since some of you like the case ..got it from CVS store for like $19.95+ some 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 air conditioner weatherseal for the liner (around $3),just cut some slits in square sponge

OK then, some memory kits

DSC05355.jpg


Featuring some of my favorites like
DSC05362.jpg


Good old elpida hyper ICs. Pulled the heatspreaders & the other 2 sticks are covered in eraser, it's a Super Talent Chrome 3 x 2Gb 2000Mhz 8-8-8 24 1.65V kit, I had them running 2000Mhz 6-6-6 for a memory comp. frozen with ln2.

My other hypers,
Corsair Dominator GTX2 3 x 2Gb 2250Mhz 8-8-8 24 1.65V, I've babied these & haven't really pushed them hard, 2240Mhz 7-7-6 18 at 1.72V with sandy bridge http://hwbot.org/submission/2223730_ftw_420_maxxmem_ddr3_sdram_2695.1_marks
Corsair Dominator GT 3 x 2Gb 1866Mhz 7-8-7 20 1.65V,1470Mhz 5-5-5 13 on x58 for a competition http://hwbot.org/submission/2104825_ftw_420_maxxmem_2x_ddr3_sdram_2105.9_marks
Super Talent Speed 3 x 2Gb 2000Mhz 7-7-7 24 1.65V

DSC05363.jpg


G skill Ripjaws X 2 x 2Gb2133Mhz 9-10-9 28 1.5V
G skill Ripjaws Z 2 x 4Gb 2133Mhz 9-11-10 28 1.65V
G skill Pi 2 x 2Gb 2200Mhz 7-10-10 28 1.65V

DSC05367.jpg


G Skill Trident X 2 x 4Gb 2600Mhz 10-12-12 31 1.65V Haven't really pushed this hard yet either, has done 2600Mhz 9-11-11 27 at 1.72v, booted 2900Mhz 11-13-13
G Skill Trident 2 x 2Gb 2000Mhz 9-9-9 24 1.6V

DSC05366.jpg


Mushkin Copperhead 3 x 2Gb 1600Mhz 7-8-7 20 1.65V I bought this kit for the heatspreaders, heavy copper & great for the ln2 pot. The case they came in was a bonus, & the memory isn't bad either, single stick cooled by a single stage did 2752Mhz 10-13-12 30 at 1.75V or so. http://hwbot.org/submission/2234761_ftw_420_memory_clock_ddr3_sdram_1376_mhz

DSC05368.jpg

DSC05369.jpg


In the big pic there are a couple ddr2 kits, the Pny kit has good D9s. The black PCB under the copperheads is a 3 x 2 dominator 1600Mhz kit that sucked, the green pcb was my first ddr3 kit, 1333Mhz stuff.

,i appreciate you sharing this with us,you got some bad S RAM buddy ..still holding on to them Hypers ...

,the Dominator GTX2 3 x 2Gb 2250CL8 is something i would love to have/ play with ,this RAM looks interesting =>(Gskill Ripjaws X 2 x 2Gb 2133Mhz 9-10-9 28 1.5V)...

nice timings 420

,have you try this set on Z77 ?

I tried out the hypers on the MSI z77 boards but the MSI doesn't seem to like them. Might be like sandy bridge where just a couple boards actually played nice, hoping the Asus MVE likes hypers the way the MIVE did.

Looks like i finally found the answer to the AB40-(H9C hynix) -this is new number on some of the Z77 sets like TridentX

I just got the 2400mhz TridentX set with the AB40 in the serial number.

Is this a good single sided set of sticks for over clocking? I'm hoping to at least hit 2600mhz. I ordered hoping for the double sided since I have read the double hynix over clock better.

These single sided AB40 Good or bad?

this set (higher binned ,single sided Hynix ) will go very high and will test your IMC to the limit, some can get CL10 @ 1400 MHz (will probably require more voltage then say Samsung IC's)

http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?280404-G.Skill-TridentX-F3-2666C11D-8GTXD-DDR3-2666-Preview

you can't go wrong with Samsung or Hynix on this platform ,single sided or double ..all tho i would prefer double,secondary timings will help a bunch

P.S. i have my second i7 3770K inbound (Thank's [email protected] KPC ) so will test most of my ram at higher frequency's soon.....

Sorry but I made a mistake.

Mine have the AB40 in the serial number but they are the TridentX F3-2400C10D-8GTX kit. Kit has date of April 2012 on them.

They are single sided.

Are they still good? I will have time to play with them tomorrow.

I only have 2 sets of the 2133 c8. The third set that looks identical are 8-8-8 1600 psc. I've never tested them personally, but I put them in his computer when I was borrowing his psc and they couldn't run the same clocks. I branded them as garbage and have never tried them out.

The super talent are hyper as are the triple channel kit of the kingston. As for trading, FTW and I have this strict "No sell, No trade" hoarding policy
biggrin.gif
. Rarely do I sell anything and then I usually regret it. I had a few sets of 2000 c9 tridents last year that I sold that I probably shouldn't have. I'm considering selling a few motherboards, but don't really like to. However, they've been sitting untouched for a very long time.

The spoiler at the top has a list of all the part numbers. Everything in the tray is whats on the desk with the exception of the Super Talent, which I put back in to my daily rig.
