Overclocking

Out of the box we're dealing with a 1600MHz DDR 9-9-9-24-2T kit and we can gladly say we didn't have a single issue getting the kit up to that speed.

As always, we like to have a bit of a dabble in what is the overclocking pool. By leaving the timings at default and the voltage at 1.65v, we see what we're able to achieve.

We ended up at 1666MHz DDR; it's not a huge overclock, but considering we're dealing with 4GB modules it's not too bad at all.

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.
