    Thanks, ya these are PSC chips, and should be no problem for you at 2133.

    Since they are made for 2000Mhz 8-9-8, you may need to use 1.68-1.72 for 2133, all depends on the chips and timings. You'll probably need to use tRCD 10 at first, then later you can try 9 again.

    I'd shoot for 2133 at 8-10-8, starting with 1.65V and then see if you need more. Try with stock/auto Vtt first as well, or maybe 1.08, then if that is not working go up in increments to 1.2, if that does not get it going then you'll need to raise the ram voltage above 1.66

    It's now been stable for a day, however, it's been running/sleeping most of that time, so I'm not getting too excited. I don't really want to attempt overclocking it even further.

    It was pointed out to me that this memory wasn't actually in the supported list for the board... it was the 6GB (triple pack) variation that was there, verified with 2 pieces. Yes, a technicality.

    Anyway, my supplier has offered to replace the memory with something else, including a refund. This is pretty awesome of them, considering the RAM is basically okay and the fault is my own. I've decided to drop down to the DDR3-1600 CL8 Corsair instead; it's cheaper, not much slower, definitely on the verified list, and the blue is better suited for my case interior! Of course, it doesnít guarantee a resolution, but Iíll let you know how it goes...

    Well I can tell you that this kit will be fine, due to the PSC chips it uses, I've ran SEVERAL PSC kits meant for X58 on these boards without a single issue. You'll just have to set it manually instead of using XMP since it's not meant for the board.

    It would be fine though if you don't want to do that exchange, but if you do that's cool (Same chips there too).

    If you need help with the new kit let us know, good luck setting things up!

    Yeah - I think I've pretty much got it sorted now, running at 1866MHz (or slightly above with BCLK at 100.3). However, I think they're over spec'd for this speed and I can't really be bothered overclocking them to 2133, as it sounds too much like hard work! Besides, I haven't used the fans that come with them; also too much work and my 600T case has ample space and airflow.

    Therefore, I'll go with the 1600MHz version and take the extra money, lower voltage/heat, blue colour and low maintenance (maybe) over what amounts to only a small increase in performance! Nevertheless, the experience to date has been invaluable and I suspect that I may need it again with the next lot anyway! I'll let you know how I get on.

    I appreciate all the assistance... and the OP for letting me hijack their thread!

    Many thanks,
    Matt.

    Cool to hear all is running smoothly! Ya you can probably overclock those (New ones) easily to 2133, just up the timings and it should be fine (Maybe a voltage bump if they are 1.5v rated)

    You are right though, the 1600 kit should be easy to use and not give you an hassles. Let us know how you get along with the new kit, and if you want help on pushing them to 2133.

    Hi Lsdmeasap,

    You know, I'm now tempted to keep the Dominator GTs and push them to 2133MHz... just a couple of questions though:

    1) Will the fan be required to overclock them, with respect to heat? I've attached a pic showing my case interior. The H70 is now running Skythe GT-1850s pulling into the case and effectively blowing (possibly warmed air) across the modules.

    2) Despite the present boot-up stability, memtest86 (v3.5 or v4) fails to even start in this current configuration... is this a concern? Perhaps I should be using memtest86+ instead (which I'll try tonight)? I would be quite content with the current 1866MHz setup if memtest actually worked!

    3) I'll use the methodology you described several posts back. With regards to timings, apart from CAS-tRCD-tRP-tRAS and Command Rate, can all the others be left at default/auto?

    Many thanks,
    Matt.

    I think you'll be fine regarding heat,try memtest86+ and yes just the basic timings you can manually set,the advanced timings should be fine on auto,what's the rams rated dram voltage? You might need one or two clicks higher to run at rated ram speed

    I'll have a play tonight. If I can get it consistently booting at 2133MHz and running clear on memtest86+, I'll keep them! Watch this space...

    Oh yeah - rated voltage is 1.65V at 2000MHz CL8.

    Ya, heat wont be a problem, you'll be fine there!

    You need to use Memtest86+ as mentioned above, latest version is here
    Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

    Ya, leave subtimings on auto, you can set command rate to 1T though. Try 8-10-8 and if that works then later you can try for 7-9-7 or 7-10-7

    Hi All,

    Well, I've had a busy night doing other stuff.... but did manage to configure and test the RAM at 2133MHz, 8-10-8-24-2T, 1.66V and 1.14V VTT. I had to gradually bump up the VTT (starting from 1.08) until memtest86+ came clean... eventually performing 4 passes without error. You guys have been pretty spot on with your suggestions!!

    Bootup has been very stable, until I tried 8-9-8; then got my first overclock failure in BIOS. I put it back to 8-10-8 and it's good again. I should add that it's still better than when I was trying to get 1866MHz working with XMP!

    Anyway, that's all for now until next Monday; I've got an awesome weekend planned at the beach. When I get back I'll change to 1T before deciding whether I want to try pushing the timings any lower?

    Once again, thanks for all the help!

    Cheerio,
    Matt.
