Overclocking

 

As we already mentioned in the introduction, this is a 2400MHz kit. Since we've dealt with kits this fast before, we knew that getting to the speed wouldn't be an issue and to no surprise, we didn't have any.

 

Using 9-11-9-27 at 1.65v, getting to 2400MHz DDR wasn't an issue. The real question is, can we achieve even more from the kit using the same timings?

The answer to that question is Yes! - Sticking with the 1.65v, we managed to achieve a nice little speed bump.

Topping out at 2490MHz DDR with the same timings, we managed to leave the memory divider at the same speed which means our CPU went from 4.2GHz to 4.357GHz.

 

Important Editor Note: Our maximum overclocking result is the best result we managed in our limited time of testing the memory. Due to time constraints we weren't able to tweak the motherboard to the absolute maximum and find the highest possible FSB, as this could take days to find properly. We do however spend at least a few hours overclocking every motherboard to try and find the highest possible overclock in that time frame. You may or may not be able to overclock higher if you spend more time tweaking, or as new BIOS updates are released. "Burn-in" time might also come into play if you believe in that.
