We spent our fair share of time trying to overclock this G.Skill. We learn a lot since our last kit and learned oven more this go around. First, we started with trying to get the most out of the CAS 9 timings of the kit. Never upping the voltage we tried different CPU Strap setting to come to this conclusion. 2198 MHZ was that conclusion. Could it get lower? Possible. But we didn’t take the kit over the rated specs.
So, what will happen if we loosen the timing just a little? At the end of the day we ended as a very respectable 2240 MHz it’s not anywhere near the magically 2400 MHz we were hoping for but we didn’t have to sacrifice timing.
