P67 mobo & 2133 RAM

Has anynoe experience with 2133 RAM and the P67 Extreme series mobos? I would like to know if this RAM will run on the Extreme6: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231519

More about mobo 2133
  1. Theorycally yes, you can see here:
    http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=P67%20Extreme6

    that Supports Dual Channel DDR3 2133(OC), but personally never tested, but probably you will be able to overclock it to 2133 normally.
  2. Depends on the P67 MOBO, but the theoretical CPU limit is ~DDR3-2600. Since there's no real gains over DDR3-1600 and often keeping >DDR3-1600 perfectly stable is a chore I really don't recommend over DDR3-1600 on LGA 1155. Further, those kits are generally >1.50v and both require higher voltages to the CPU's IMC and DIMMs so the gains tiny for the 'real' cost (CPU + RAM).

    Unless you are 24/7 OC >4.5GHz my advice is don't get >DDR3-1600.

    Thanks Jaquith, I know the theoretical limitations, and was looking for some first hand experience with the components. BTW, the ASRock Extreme6 (and I think the entire extreme series) is rated for 2133 RAM. I am looking for practical experience and settings.

    I've used the Dominator CMT16GX3M4X2133C9 and Mushkin Enhanced Redline 993996 kits on Z68's.

    At least a x42~x45+ CPU multiplier

    Set memory manually and don't use XMP:
    DRAM Frequency -> 2133MHz
    CAS Timings to spec 9-11-10-27-2T // 9-11-10-28-2T // (CAS-TRCD-TRP-TRAS-CMD)
    DRAM Voltage -> 1.64v
    CPU VCCSA -> 1.20v
    VTT CPU -> 1.20v

    I know a thing or two of OC'ing -> http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2261309
    ...and for my personal rig, I am a hell of lot more interested in RAM stability; I use RAM Cache and RAM Drive. I build for folks that 'too' don't listen and put in whatever they want. ;)
