how are they responding to voltage?
2V is a little low.. how about 2.2V+

I will try up to 2.1V to see if I can get them stable at 2.9ghz+ with 400 divider (/10) with C4 timings. If I can do that I will be satisfied. After all C4 timings with the 533 divider is pretty much out of the question, and I would rather have the tight timings than the mhz.

My motherboard only goes up to 2.1 in the bios, I can force 2.4 with a jumper, I'm not sure I want to make that jump.

These sticks can do 280 C4 timings with 2.1V, and 400 C5 timings with 2.1V although the latter seems to be on the edge of stability. Unfortunately I cannot do 1T with the 533 divider, so there is little benefit for me there. Any higher than that and I get failures in Orthos or freezing.

I may try 2.4V at some point because they do seem to be responding to voltage. I don't have too much to gain though, maybe 5-10 mhz with the 400 divider at C4 timings, and hopefully the ability to run 1T with the 533 divider.

First I need to get a fan to blow on these things (I've been doing my testing with a table fan pointed at my open case).

PQI $38 bucks 2x256 DR2-667 CL5, 1.8V
590Mhz @ CL3
670Mhz @ CL4
720Mhz @ CL5

Wintec $169 on sale 2X1G CL4 DDR2-800, 1.9V (so far, getting a better CPU) :santa:
825Mhz @ CL4
