I am very interested in getting this OCZ kit as the Mushkin kit I wanted has gone back up in price:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227388

I have not heard much from OCZ in terms of DDR3. This kit comes with an XMP of 9-9-9-28 at 1800MHz, though, which makes it extremely tempting since it is still priced with other 1600MHz memory. Does anyone have experience or know of any reviews of this memory? If there is cheaper RAM that will do the same I have not found it, so feel free to enlighten me! I will be using a vanilla P6T board or an MSI Eclipse (haven't decided yet), so the RAM should be able to go that high on either of those two bards (both of which from reviews seem to be capable of putting RAM that high).

These Dominators are also an option as they come with a $30 discount with a P6T:

Does anyone have experience with them? I see that Newegg has them listed as awarded (which means they are popular), yet I have not seen this particular set in any reviews.

I'm running the OCZ XMP and have been able to get it to the 1800 at 1.65v with no problems at all in my evga x58. Super stable, no issues with it at all. I picked up the 3x2gb kit and have loved it.

How high have you been able to clock them?

I'll have to dig through and look, I've torture tested a few different clock speeds / voltages... I'm sitting at 1.65v pushing it to right at 1800mhz currently.

Anything above 1800MHz at 9-9-9-24 is gravy, but if it can do more than the Corsair Dominators I linked to that's even better.

So has anyone had experience with the Dominators?

Wow... That's an excellent overclock - it seems too good to be true!

I certainly hope there is something you're missing because trogalicious' results are amazing so I'd hate to think they are a fluke!

I have the XMP as well, and some mobos don't support the XMP feature, but you can still manually OC the ram. I don't know where mine maxes out at 9-9-9-28, but keeping it on 8-8-8-24, I've been up to 1776MHz, corresponding to a 222bclk which is a very hard wall to get past with the i7. I think these are really good option for the 920 and 940 because the choice of memory dividers is fairly limited if you're going for an OC of 4GHz or higher on the cpu.

66MHz more than what OCZ offers for $60 more is not good enough. Surely they overclock better?
