Hi guys so ive proably learned so much over the last year with the whole lockdown stay at home thing. i used to work 5-6 days a week so i never got a proper sitdown with the hardware i spent my hard earned cash on.
I set myself a few goals this year and some i achived and some i still need to meet.
I have mainly wanted to learn a better understanding on how certain memory clocks. DDR2 and DDR3 and what the heck those damn timings mean
Learning to Bin CPUs
Wanted to see 600Fsb for the first time on 775
Ive been collecting a few sticks from time to time.
Micron D9GTs - I like these sticks spent a long time tweaking the timings on 775 and AM3, There big fat long chips. I have 2 Kits 2x1GB and 2x2GB Both Corsair XMS3 Intel Extreme Ver 3.1 Cas 7. On my Phenom ii 970 i was able to get them down to CL6-5-5-10 1T 2.16v 1600Mhz. I need to retest at higher clocks on AM3 as i am board limited with my current 775 boards.
PSC - I got my first Corsair CL7 kit in and really enjoyed using these sticks i like that they can do CL6-7-5-20 at 1.65V , I found some Kingston Value Ram with these ICs they did CL6-8-6-20 1.675V but dont seem to want to post at 2000Mhz even with loose timings. Got some G.Skill CL7 Blue PSC Quad kit so will be fun to test out on X58. did find a PSC Stick in AData 1600mhz Kit but only 1 stick was PSC Matched pair too very odd!.
Elpida Hyper - I like using these and then i kinda dont. Very nice sticks had mine doing CL6-6-6-20 1600Mhz and CL7-7-7-20 2000Mhz easily. just feel like there gonna die anytime i boot them up . one of the sticks seems to be better quality than the other as it sometimes would randomly drop the channel.
Elpida BDBG - Got these on OEM kingston still need to test and go on testing information online.
Micron D9KPT - Got a tripple channel OCZ Kit , dont think much about them
Nanya - Corsair ver 8.1- Lol these are a joke. Worst ever
Micron D9 - so i didnt know much about the best DDR2 Ics and i had been sitting on a 1300Mhz kit for years!!. i Bought Several Crucial Ballistix Kits
6x FD3 1x FD5 6xFE5. The Black FD5 Ballistix Tracers seem to be my best sticks i had them doing 860Mhz CL3-3-3-10 , CL4-4-4-12 1066M Mhz , CL5-5-5-20 1330Mhz 2.4v
The other kits i tested did 1200mhz with ease at 2.2v. im going to do some Testing on AM3 as i was having inconsistent results on LGA 775 and i think it may be related to the NB.
