Happy New Year. Currently I'm running 16gb (2x8gb) of Kingston HyperX Blu Red Series 1600mhz RAM with cas latency of 10. After a little experimenting I was able to get the cas latency down to 7 with 7-7-7-20 timing @ 1333mhz. I ran memtest for two hours and it came back with zero errors. CPU-Z says each stick is actually running at 671.1mhz for a total of 1342mhz. Should I be satisfied with my results or should I go with g.skill to see if I can achieve the same timings at a higher frequency? Currently Assassin's Creed III is running at 47 fps and Battlefield 3 is running at 60 fps.
Here's my setup:
2 HD 7850's in crossfire
Kingston HyperX BLU Red Series 16gb (2x8gb)
The CPU clock is the only thing I haven't experimented with yet. Its running at 3.5Ghz with CPU Performance Boost enabled. This is my first build and I'm rather new to the concept of overclocking, so I just left the CPU at its stock settings. I'm running an air cooled system in an Antec Eleven Hundred with 9 120mm fans, a 200mm exhaust fan, and a NOCTUA NH-U12P SE2 CPU cooler.
