    At 1600MHz it sets it to:

    Memory Multiplier = 12x
    DDR Voltage = 1.65V
    CPU VCore = 1.28V
    QPI = 1.35V
    CAS = 8
    tRCD = 8
    tRP = 8
    tRAS = 24
    Command Rate = 2

    Just found this thread searching for info on the same problem with the Corsair Dominator TR3X6G1600C8D. There is a lot of us currently with this instability issue at 1600Mhz on the Dominators. Thought I would post up some links so we can all stay connected to try and resolve our problems.

    x58 3xSLI, RAM Timings, Voltages

    EVGA X58 3X SLI and TR3X6G1600C8D

    I've been gauging my instability with SuperPI, it seems to crash almost instantaneously if there is a problem. Where Prime95 might take a good 10-12hrs to crash if the settings are decent. But at 1600Mhz I am currently lost on how to set these timings right. 1333Mhz seems to work flawlessly, but no 1600Mhz. I have ran Memtest for 10hrs - 15 passes and no errors on these.

    you need more qpi voltage than that set it at 1.28000,and its not qpi pll its qpi/vtt just so you know which one to adjust keep everything on auto except ram multi and ram timings and voltages

    I've been bumping around QPI voltages to see what different results I
    can get in SuperPI. I have also tried at different DIMM voltages. DIMM
    1.7v and QPI 1.4v have shown to be the best settings so far for me.
    Hopefully that is not overkill. I have read so many different opinions
    I dont even know what is fact or fiction anymore. These RAM have
    completed 20 passes in LinX (on XMP Profile 1), ran Prime95 for
    8-12hrs (depending on settings), and have cleared a 15 pass in
    Memtest86+. But if you run SuperPI or HyperPI the machine either
    freezes or instant restarts. This instability also shows it's face
    while playing video games. I am running Memtest86+ again today for a
    full twenty or more passes.

    Manual Settings:

    RESULTS IN SUPERPI:

    1.4v____restart

    +250mv & 1.70v DIMM

    loops/3rd freeze at loop 16)

    1.425v__1 loop restart
    1.5v____1 loop restart (Post Code FF/Reset CMOS)

    +250mv & 1.675v DIMM

    1.350v__1 loop restart
    1.375v__freeze 2sec then restart (odd)
    1.4v____freeze

    +250mv & 1.65v DIMM

    1.1v____freeze
    1.3v____freeze
    1.4v____freeze

    +250mv & 1.625v DIMM

    1.1v____restart

    +250mv & 1.600v DIMM

    1.1v____freeze

    EXTREME JUICE TESTING (Probably to high)


    +300mv & 1.65v DIMM

    1.4v____freeze

    +300mv & 1.70v DIMM

    1.4v____16 loops restart
    1.425v__16or17 loops restart
    1.450v__5 loops restart
    1.475v__1 loops freeze

    +275mw & 1.70v DIMM

    1.2v____restart

    Lower DIMM voltages have not shown good results (freezes & restarts)
    so I deviated to other paths of testing. I will post them up though
    once I collect enough tests from them (unless this data is useless
    *shrug*).

    I am currently playing in the 1333Mhz range with no immediate visible
    problems; they run perfectly fine at 1333Mhz. Still no 1600Mhz
    stability :(

    On my EVGA board it is QPI VLL VCore and there is a CPU VTT Voltage. I have tried increasing the CPU VCore to 1.3v instead of auto (1.28v) but that does not seem to help much either.

    *UPDATE*

    Posted this up on the Corsair Forum. I have XMP enabled to be cooperative with the Corsair tech, RAM GUY.

    I have all three of my RAM in with XMP Profile 1 enabled and DIMM set to 1.65v (all other BIOS options are set to default). They are currently at 12 passes and no errors (going to let them go to 20 passes). Is this sufficient to rule out memory errors or do I still need to test them individually?

    From what I read some voltages are very dandgerous for the Core i7 and will kill the CPU if not withing hours than within weeks, vDIMM is among them, you realy should reconsider any values above 1.65v.

    Yeah, I had a good feeling a lot of these numbers where to high but was unsure. And in my (stupidity) desperation I was trying anything to figure out some form of a solution. I'm very mixed up on what is to high or to low. What I think currently is nothing above +300mv or 1.5 QPI is a good idea (testing showed that was a bad idea). But like I said I am just trying find a solution with this RAM. I am very sure at this point though that these Dominators are possessed with an evil demon.

    its much easier to loosen ram timings than risk overvolting ram,DONT go any higher than 1.66 for ram voltage and qpi 1.3000 should be more than enuff if i can run at 1800mhz with 1.2800 qpi@3.8ghz then youll be able to run at 1600mhz youd be better off setting timings at 8-8-8-28 or 9-9-9-24 @1600mhz then test with thatkeep cpu voltage on normal i have with no problems at all
