Fast running memory that looks good in the case!
on January 5, 2012
I am running 16 GIG of these at 1672 MHz at 1.5 VDC. They are running in an ASUS Crosshair V Formula motherboard with an AMD 1100T CPU overclocked to 4.2 GHz. They are DDR3 SDRAM with a nice red heat spreader to dissipate heat quickly and allow them to be stable in my system. I monitor the heat sink with a temperature probe and they are stable at 77 degrees C. Being able to run them at 1.5 VDC and get these speeds reduces a lot of heat dissipation issues when compared to previously having to use 1.65 VDC to get these speeds with older style memory.
I used two sets and each pair was a matched set so I made sure that I put the matching set into the paired slots on the motherboard. The settings I am using for RAM timings are 9-9-9-24-33-2T. These memory sticks come with a lifetime limited warranty. G.Skill is a very good memory manufacturing company and the performance of this model is just excellent! I have no complaints, just smiles!
