    1) Great budget overclocking ram - it was a tough choice between this and the DDR3 1600 1.35v G.Skill Eco's reviewed here:

    2) CL6 is snappy but higher bandwidth, higher gigaflops, and lower latency are achieved with DDR3 1866 and DDR3 2133.
    3) Bandwidth is greater and latency is lower @ DDR3 2133 with CL7 vs. CL9 but not appreciably more, with Vdimm jumping from 1.5v to 1.65v.
    4) Didn't bother to take a screenshot, but 7-10-8-27 1T DDR3 2133 @ 1.65v passed 25 runs of 8 thread linX @ 4.9ghz.

    Hope you liked my mini-review.
    Gotta luv this G.Skill ram

    EDIT
    Lowest 25 pass linX stable settings for DDR3 2133 @ 1.5v: 9-10-8-27 1T



    Again, processing time and gigaflops not that different from 7-10-8-27 @ 1.65v. Same is true for read/write/copy/latency.
    I think I'll stick with this 9-10-8-27 1T DDR3 2133 @ 1.5v setting.

    EDIT
    7-10-8-27 1T DDR3 2133 passed linX 25 times fine at a lower 1.6v.
