So I purchased this kit to go with my evga x58/ core i7 920 build and it's performed quite well thus far. it does 1600mhz @ 8-8-8-24-74-1T no problem...
and it does this all at 1.575 volts.... not the rated 1.65 that it "needs"
So with 1.6volts it'll even do 8-8-8-19-59-1T
and at 1.65 you can make it do a nice 7-7-7-12-59-1T
Though not wanting to tempt fate and loving their stock speeds I'm running mine currently at 1866 with 1.65 volts (thats a 266mhz oc for those who hate math like I do) at an amazing 8-8-8-24-59-1T I'm sure if I losened the timings up to the 9-9-9's I coul probably go up to 2000mhz!!!!
But why bother?
Vista already loads up in less than 12 seconds from the moment I hit the power button.
This is the first corsair kit I've ever owned and used. I've always heard great things but never bit the bullet because of their high prices.
I'm glad I didn't cut corners this time around and splurged on the good stuff ^^
I'm definately gonna be a corsair customer for life from this point foward.
They're not the cheapest kit out there but a month ago they were $350 and now they're under $230!!! I paid something like $275 for mine. Get them while they're cheap!!!!
