Corsair memory is a lottery. Check what dram chips you have. If it's Hynix, it wont do much better than XMP.I got home late last night, and just tried to go 5.2ghz at 1.32v. It didn't last too long, like 5 minutes before it crashed so I decided I would rather see how low I can go on 5.0ghz. So far I went to 1.23v stable. I didn't do too much tweaking after that. I proceeded to reinstall windows because I was still using my old windows 10 from launch rofl.
I will tweak more tomorrow and report my findings.
Skalas my batch number is L922D758
The thing that irks me a bit, is that my Corsair Vengeance 3200mhz rgb seems to be a bit of a bore. If I drop the timings less than XMP which is 16,16,18,36 @ 3200mhz, I can't get it to boot. Which to me is surprising, I would expect at least 15,15,15,28 at 1/2T. And that's even at 1.35v. So not really sure what the hell is going there, can't win them all hey! Or is there maybe some other setting that will influence my ram timings that I could tweak? I normally just upped the volts to 1.35 and proceed to OC. My ripjaws V 2666mhz for example was rated CL15, I managed 3000mhz at 15,15,15,28 and it booted like a boss. Didn't even bother to push it further. Think I might have downgraded with this set. G.skill from now on.
Are people still overclocking uncore/Nb these days? I see mine is running at 4.3ghz, any use pushing that?
If it's Samsung b die or micron they can usually be pushed very hard.
If you buy Ballistix they you're guaranteed micron and in rare cases Samsung. They don't use Hynix at all.
