Excellent RAM, very stable and actually easily overclockable to 2133 mhz on Asus P8P67 Revolution WS and Asus Maximus IV Extreme-Z with correct voltage and BIOS settings. However, does not work well in 4 stick configuration at these speeds. If you want to use all 4 slots you must drop speeds back closer to the 1333-1600 range. Here are the settings.... for 2133mhz...set of TWO RAM sticks, CAS to 11-11-11-24(or 28, depending), CR 1, 1.6v-1.85v +/- (depends on board) play around with VCCSA and VCCIO voltages for stability as well. This is with Intel i7 2600K, Asus P67 and Z68 boards. In my experience Will not overclock well to 2133mhz on MSI Big Bang or Asrock Fatality Z68 Gen 3 Professional (Top notch motherboard however)
I have found the same overclockability in other Samsung RAM as well. To bad I did not discover this prior to spending hundreds of dollars on other make RAM with advertised 2133mhz capability. Its all about marketing and binning.
Now just hope Amazon holds price at the $30.00 range as they are now... now that the cat is out of the bag..
