Overclocked Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 2x8GB DDR4-2666mhz CL 16-18-18-35 to 3733mhz CL 17-19-19-39. can anyone do better? had to bump voltage from 1.2 to 1.42.

Good day to you sir. I too, enjoy urinating across great horizontal distances.

is this a reference to something?

Samsung B-die at its finest. I’d you have an AMD chip and a high end SOC VRM throw some crazy voltages and see what kind of clocks you can pull out. Meanwhile I can’t get my kit from 3000 to 3200.

We don't know that!

Different Corsair series and different revisions are using different ICs.

So, it could be micron chips.

For being 100% sure, the OP must run Thaiphoon Burner to get a report from that kit in question. :)

they are Hynix chips on my set

mark5916 1 point 6 days ago

Yeah and there is a kit that relies on the same A revision as yours, but uses Micron ICs. Go figure! lol

And in particular...

Manufacturer: Corsair
Model:  Vengeance RGB PRO DDR4-2666 2 x 8 GB
Module marking: CMW16GX4M2A2666C16
Marking of memory chips: Micron 6VA77 D9SRJ
Memory standard: DDR4-2400
Volume: 2 x 8 GB
Frequency: 2666 MHz
Timings: CL16-18-18-35-2Т
Operating voltage: 1.2 V.

And most probably you are using a Intel chip-set board for going that far, from 2666MHz to 3733MHz. (i guess...)

i am. gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro Wifi, i7-8700K and obviously, those memory modules.

mark5916 1 point 6 days ago

Oh! OK. I just wanted to know. lol

Its also not B-Die

Cheap B-Die clocks like literal ***

Also more SOC voltage can cause issues

its not B-die

DaMysteryMan 1 Build 1 point 6 days ago

Holy **** then congrats

BetrayedPredator 1 point 6 days ago

That is a pretty standard clock for AFR / CJR

B-Die is not the only good RAM

mark5916 1 point 6 days ago

Try 3600MHz with CL16-18-18-35-2Т at 1.36 V

If you use command rate (1T) then you can leave them at 3733MHz.

bucketofcrud12 submitter 4 Builds 1 point 6 days ago

Im using command rate 2T, but yeah, I'll try 3600 perhaps.

mark5916 1 point 6 days ago

Now, why i suggested that.

Because latency wise, you will hit a 10 with both speed configurations, but using less voltage may lead to a more stable or even higher CPU overclock. :)

bucketofcrud12 submitter 4 Builds 1 point 6 days ago

CPU is at 5ghz

mark5916 1 point 6 days ago

Well if stability is present, there is nothing to worry about then. :)

BetrayedPredator 1 point 6 days ago

Alright I want a screenshot of Rzyen memory checker or ASrock Timing Config (for Intel) with MemTest ran overnight to actually prove it

Then run Thaiphoon burner to find the IC

BetrayedPredator 1 point 6 days ago

So its AFR

Now run a stress test booting means nothing
