  1. No those are perfectly fine, the 1.5 that Intel mentions is for th CPU and stock and for entry level 1600/1866 sticks, with freqs of 2133 and up 1.6 or 1.65 is the norm for DRAM

    In the link you provide above, that was me saying they are perfectly fine for 1.65 at 2133 or higher, my Sandy Bridge has been running 32GB of 2133 at 1.65 since SB came out, my IB has been running the 2400 Tridents you are looking at (mine is the 32GB set) since they were released in May of last year, and my Haswell is running the Tridents (32GB 2666 at 1.65), think I have about 150 builds since the release of Sandy bridge, and the majority are running 2133 1.65 sticks or higher - not a single CPU, mobo or DRAM failure - I'm also an Admin at Gskill's forums and haven't heard of DRAM frying or causing a CPU failure

    oh ok...trident it is then :) Thanks
  6. Great choice, they replaced the Snipers as my DRAM of choice close to a year and ahalf ago, have gone through over 60 sets and not a problem with them yet
