With most memory kits out in the wild falling into the upper 2000MHz to lower 3000MHz range, we’re already a few steps above running at 3866MHz out of the box, but let’s see what else we can get.

We jump straight to the 4GHz mark with ease and don’t have to change anything.

4200MHz takes a slight bump in voltage to 1.385V

We see the latency drop slightly, and a couple of Gigabytes more a second across the board.

4400MHz required a jump to 1.42V.

Latency didn’t change much, but raw bandwidth goes up again. We were unable to POST with the memory running any faster though, higher voltage and drastically loosened timings just didn’t help.
