    The pic below shows what my two 8GB(4Gbx2) kits of Samsung MV-3V4G3D/US (<-Link) appear as.

    EDIT: Pic is at stock speed and timings.

    #1 - Please, when seeking help, enter the make and model of ALL parts that your system is comprised of in your Signature, or at least the model #'s in your System Specs, then "Save' it.
    ____If you are overclocking, underclocking, or undervolting any parts, informing us of this and their values would prove beneficial in helping you.

    #2 - Consider your PSU to be the foundation from which all else is built upon. Anything built upon a weak foundation is poorly built.

    Virutal, no big deal about the XMP profile, and I did say you were a little confused, but as I see now, not at all. EPP was a DDR2 memory thing, the forerunner to XMP.

    wardog's post shows all the profiles the Samsung memory has, which are just called the JEDEC profiles. Your description of XMP profiles is perfect, and yes you could do that yourself.

    Memory manufactures include the slower speed profiles as defaults to save users and themselves grief. Say an inexperienced guy buys 2400 memory for his PC, that is a cheapo all in one job, that can run memory at 1600 at best. He puts it in and it boots because the PC's BIOS runs it at 1333, since the PC designers know the limits of that hardware, and the settings for 1333 are in the memory profiles. If the only profile in the memory was at 2400 settings, the PC would never even POST.

    I don't know what to tell you about the compatibility list, and what the memory manufactures do or say. I've had no luck using memory not in the list, until I found this Samsung memory. Maybe other manufactures will use it (they do) and their products will be more flexible in use.

    wardog, CPU-Z doesn't seem to read the Samsung memory quite right. Notice the weird frequencies that would end up being 1218, 1370, 1521, and 1676 speeds. But the actual speed you got was a normal 1600. HWiNFO64 read this memory like this:
