- DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900)
- Timing 9-10-9-27
- Cas Latency 9
- Voltage 1.5V
1866 MHz exactly as stated 04/26/2012
Mushkin is my new favorite. This memory is solid, strong, and reliable.
For Intel chipset motherboards with default timings of 1333 or 1600, just select the XMP profile setting of 1866 MHz, and it's done in a snap.
They are great chips since they have potential and run at a low voltage of 1.5v. The others that post the same timings at 1.65v have to work harder, demanding more from your CPU, power supply, and motherboard---and chopping down their lifespan---that is why those other chips are so cheap. Then you can barely overclock them since the voltages are already maxxxed out.
In my system (see below), these can either:
---easily bump to 2166 Mhz with one O.C. step-up.
---stay at 1866, but increase the voltage to 1.6v, and drop the timings to 8-9-8-25 for a screaming fast latency!
Ran so good, I bought 8 more gigs for a total of 16 G. I installed a Corsair memory fan on all 4 chips which fit perfectly too, to keep them ice cold, just in case ;)
