  • Info overclock F3-1866C9D-8GAB

    Hello, I just bought 3 set of this Ares ram (24 GB in triple channel, Intel Xeon W3690 on an Asus Rampage II Gene) and I got it stable at 1866 (9-10-9-28-2T, dram 1.65v) with my cpu oc'ed to 4,50 GHz.
    No I would like to push them a little bit, and my question is: how much can I get the clock higher and what timings? Is it better to get their clock high or lower timings?

    Thank you

    Higher frequency will need more QPI/VTT Voltage, so it depends how high you want to run it.

    Higher clock is better. Current settings are pretty good for that system.
    Are you an overclocker? Have screen shots of your OC results? Please post and share your OC experience!

      My QPI/VTT voltage right now is 1.35v, I pushed it in the past to 1.40v (with other ram).
      Now I'm testing command rate to 1T, same other settings, will see if it's stable

        Well, after a lot of overclock testing, I must say: these kit are AWESOME! I wanna just leave my experience here for anyone who maybe search on the web about their overclock ability.

        I'm running them right now @ 1949 MHz with timings 9-10-9-28-2T and 1.65v. So, higher frequency and stock timings!
        Just a note: I had to send back one of the three kits since it was newer compared to others and it had single rank DIMMs; older ones I'm running are dual ranked and it's not a good idea mixing single-dual rank DIMMs in the same channel (I was unable to find a stable overclock). But if I will find another kit which is dual ranked I will surely buy it for a 24GB config.

        Thank you G.Skill!!
