Default G.Skill F3-12800CL8T-6GBHK Review

When I set out to overclock these modules, I had a goal of reaching 1866 with reasonable settings. Loosening the timings and increasing the voltage did not greatly improve stability beyond 1800MHz, and the modules weren't hot at all. Nothing like the original DDR days. No matter how much QPI or memory voltage I poured in, the results were similar. The highest I could manage to boot with was 1868MHz, unstable and 2Mhz over of my goal of 1866, with rolling blue screens proving that these modules were finicky at higher speeds. They appeared stable with CAS 10, which didn't add any headroom, but then what's the point at running that loosely with high voltage. At CAS 9 they would boot happily and run for a while until a random BSOD would appear. Testing was conducted with 1.66V at stock timings. The overclocked testing was done at 1800MHz, rather than the volatile settings and loose timings that were needed for the extra 66MHz. 1800MHz was very simple.
