    Default GA-P55M-UD4 and G.Skill Trident or PIS memory.

    Need help in getting PC3 16000 (DDR3 2000 MHz) or faster memory for a GA-P55M-UD4 MB.

    Currently have an i7-860 OC'd to 4GHz with 8GB of F3-12800CL9D-4GBNQ (two 4GB kits), BCLK = 200 MHz, and CPU voltage is 1.38750V.

    From Gigabyte's recommended list the Trident PC3 16000 (DDR3 2000) will work with my MB;

    Newegg.com - G.SKILL Trident 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000) Desktop Memory Model F3-16000CL9D-4GBTD

    Given the fixed memory multipliers for my MB (6X, 8X, 10X, 12X) and the BCLK = 200 MHz would seem to suggest memory rated in multiples of 400 MHz?

    Does using XMP memory profile(s) get around this fixed memory multiplier issue?

    Finally, I'm currently looking at faster G.Skill PIS and Trident memory, does anyone have direct experience with the following memory modules on the GA-P55M-UD4 MB?

    G.Skill PIS (or PI Series);

    DDR3 2200 (PC3 17600) Desktop Memory Model F3-17600CL7D-4GBPIS

    DDR3 2300 (PC3 18400) Desktop Memory Model F3-18400CL8D-4GBPIS

    DDR3 2133 (PC3 17066) Desktop Memory Model F3-17066CL7D-4GBPIS

    DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000) Desktop Memory Model F3-16000CL6D-4GBPIS

    DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model F3-19200CL9D-4GBPIS

    DDR3 2200 (PC3 17600) Desktop Memory Model F3-17600CL7Q-8GBPIS

    G.Skill Trident;

    DDR3 2133 (PC3 17066) Desktop Memory Model F3-17066CL9D-4GBTDS

    DDR3 2133 (PC3 17066) Desktop Memory Model F3-17066CL9Q-8GBTDS

    Any help from anyone will be greatly appreciated, TIA.

    No XMP will not get you around the memory multipliers, you will need to use 10 or 12 multi to get at 2000Mhz or above, using 180-200 Bclk

    I also suggest NOT using XMP anyway, set your own settings, XMP can way overvolt things
