    Thanks for all the responses. Yeah, I remember when memory prices were really low last year (as I bought these OCZ during that time for $90 after rebate). I guess that leaves me with the question of, is there likely to be any noticeable difference in me running these at 1520MHz instead of 1600MHz? I'm not into benchmarking and stuff like that, so I'm guess if I want to avoid the hassle of RMA then I should just stick with these.

    Also, as I mentioned I bought these last year, so there is no return policy available to me. Only RMA to OCZ; and by then it'll just swapping for the same set of RAM and not a refund. I'll update this if I find any way to get it to work (I started a thread on the OCZ forums as well). If you guys have any other tips, please let me/us know. Thanks!

    ocz are very good to deal with regarding rma and they have a lifetime warranty,and yeah performance can change from batch to batch,you might get a better running kit sent you if you rma them

    if they dont run at rated speed/voltage/timing then return them imo,even at stock cpu clocks and xmp enabled they should work,maybe a slight tweak in qpi/vtt voltage otherwise rma

    forgot to add,no you wont notice any difference in speed from 1520 to 1600mhz,you wont notice anything from 1600mhz to 1800mhz either,maybe if you do heavy video encoding or game frame rates but nothing major

    Not sure why I never tried just using XMP Profile 1 (well I thought I read people saying to just manually input the timings was better and that XMP may not work anyways)...

    But, I just put it on XMP Profile 1 which is rated for 1600MHz, and it's on pass 6 of LinX. Previously I couldn't get more than 2 passes. Hopefully this will work! I'll update when I make the full 50 passes (hopefully). Any ideas why XMP is *currently* working and my manually input settings didn't?

    make a note of what the xmp profile sets the qpi/vtt and dram voltage at,i dont think it alters the cpu voltage then you can compare to what you were setting manually as this is a good guide to start with,then try manually setting voltages and lowering a little and test for stability,if you cant lower voltages then stick with xmp,whatever works best and is most reliable

    Sounds like a plan. Do I just pull the voltages that XMP Profile is using from the BIOS? Is it the voltages that are shown in the left-hand column? Or should I use some sort of program running in Windows to do so - if so, which one?

    Edit: Just failed in pass 8. Back to the drawing board...

    if you have easytune then click tuner/advanced/voltage 1,then look at the target voltages and make a note of qpi/vtt and dram,if not then the bios will tell you,the voltages to the right are your current voltages

    still make a note and try a few clicks up on qpi/vtt voltage

    The voltages that the XMP Profile was running the memory at was 1.65V for memory, and 1.4V for QPI. I did both, and even upped the QPI to the next step above 1.4V and still couldn't pass LinX.
