    Thanks for confirming
    I'm with you, I too think it is a bios issue.

    Did some testing with my second chip which maxes out at 53X. 1088 @ 47x, 1083 @ 52x and 1070 @53x all tested at 7-10-8-27. DDR 1.6v.Tried 1088 at 53x but SPI had errors. Just posted for those inquiring minds.

    If it worked out it would be a sweet upgrade though.

    Has anyone tried these out on X58 MB? I'm thinking about getting 2 sets of these and running 8gb in flex mode.

    cl6 at 1.5v looks like top notch quality IC material.

    You Dog(pun intended)! I was eying that kit but went with the $69 G.Skill Ripjaws F3-16000CL9D-4GBRM kit that in another post does 7-10-7-27 1T DDR3 2133. Recent Newegg 10% off memory sale, huh?

    I just couldn't justify the $159 (actually I could have...)

    yup exactly right on the newegg sale

    I figured I had all hyper ic based sticks of dram and none of them seem to play well with my P8P67 Pro so it was a logical time to upgrade.

    plus compared to what I payed for 12GB of SuperTalent 2000c7, the Gskill ram seems like a steal

    How come memtest86 and in windows doesn't show what setting I've set into the bios. If I try XMP profile everything load fine into the bios (6-8-6-24) but show (8-8-9-24) in windows or memtest86. I've try many different setting but always load wrong ???

    My results with the 6-8-6 kit



    I tried pushing it to 7-10-7-26-1T and I got lower scores lol!




    Whats a good way to stress test the RAM's? ( that wont degrade the processor along the way )
    I've tried running it at 1.500v 7-10-7-26-1T 2133Mhz and it completes Hyper PI 0.99b 32M and 1M tests w/o issues, so im guessing its stable?

    I like http://hcidesign.com/memtest/ - only stresses RAM and is very prone to pick up instability and might do it in a sec or two even if it appears to be stable for normal use.

    memtest86 or ocz memtest86 are also good but you have to create a boot disk and it runs in a dos format outside of windows

    Why your copying speed is so poor? Newer version gives that much different result? Here is my result @ 7-10-7-27 1T 2133MHz, totally stable.

    Yeah the newer version is adjusted properly so scores are lower overall due to the updated version of AIDA64.

    G.Skills are great overclockers even the low brand are nice, a lot of people buy the cheap ones and over clock them all the time.

    Seems like im stable at 7-10-7-27-1T @ 1.500 vDIMM

    EDIT:

    Odd AIDA64 and HWinfo32 detects my vDIMM at 1.656.. I'll double check later as Im sure I've manually set it to 1.500v

    EDIT2:

    After a few blending sessions its not really stabe at 1.500v next step 1.600v

    Did you get your ram stable at 1.6? Mine seems stable at 7-10-8-27 1.6V... same as OPs test.

    Has anyone managed to reach 2300 with this memory set?

    Sorry to drag up a nearly dead topic...but I just received a set of this RAM and I'm really struggling with them. They post and run perfect at DDR3 1600 6-8-6-24 1T @ 1.5v, but will not run anything over that. 1866 and 2133 result in a 221 BSOD before Windows loads. I've tried 1.5-1.65v and they all result in the same outcome.

    I am on a Gigabyte UD4 B3 with F3D BIOS if that helps. Thanks!
