uncle fester Posted April 7, 2012 Share Posted April 7, 2012 (edited) G.SKILL F3-17000CL9D-8GBXLD Test platform : Intel i7 3770k Gigabyte UD5H Z77 G.SKILL F3-17000CL9D-8GBXLD Windows 7 SP0 Benchmarks : Super pi Mod 1.5 MaxxMem AIDA 64 memory and cache benchmark Thoughts : I found these memory sticks were performing great up until 2300mhz, after this point it became neccesarry to loosen the timings and add more vdimm and vtt to gain stability, once I started into the 2400+MHz range the memory was becoming more and more unstable and timings nor voltage seemed to help here, this may not be a limitation of the memory here and may very well an IMC limitation of my CPU. For a very reasonably priced 8GB kit of memory this is a great kit, while it is no 2600+mhz monster kit it would definatly suit most enthusiasts who could very easily sit at 2300MHz @ 9-11-9-30-2T without the need to bump any voltages. While I did manage to hit 2500MHz on this kit it was not stable enough to pass even 4m SPI, but would happily pass Maxxmem and AIDA 64. The Gigabyte UD5H was an extremly solid board, I honestly could not fault it in any area, wait yes i can no PS2 connector !!!!!! @ stock SPD profile 2133 9-11-9-30-2T, CPU 40 x 100.00, CPU VTT 1.100v IMC 1.100v, Vdimm 1.65v. @ 2200 9-11-9-30-2T, CPU 40 x 100.00, CPU VTT 1.100v IMC 1.100v, Vdimm 1.65v. @ 2300 9-11-9-30-2T, CPU 40 x 104.60, CPU VTT 1.100v IMC 1.100v, Vdimm 1.65v. @ 2350 10-11-10-30-2T, CPU 40 x 107.00, CPU VTT 1.200v IMC 1.180v, Vdimm 1.75v. @ 2464 11-13-11-38-2T, CPU 40 x 112.00, CPU VTT 1.200v IMC 1.180v, Vdimm 1.75v. @ 2500 11-13-11-38-2T, CPU 43 x 104.00, CPU VTT 1.200v IMC 1.180v, Vdimm 1.75v.
