I have a read out from everest and easytune (gigabyte utility). Bare in mind that these are some pretty cheap/generic DDR3 modules sold by crucial.

Current settings

Unganged Dual Channel DDR3 1333Mhz 9-9-9-24 (automatic timing) 1.5v


Everest Benchmark:

Memory Read: 8174 MB/s
Memory Write: 6775 MB/s
Memory Copy: 9908 MB/s
Memory Latency: 54ns

any problems with these numbers?

EasyTune timings:

I guess both tables would be acceptable, and I notice it sort of shows the timings slightly overclocked by a mhz or a few (ie showing the timings for 1524mhz). Just wondering why it determines these numbers differently.

Also, any predictions for how tight I could get the timings without heat becoming a problem, and preferably without upping the voltage much or at all? Worth pushing to 1524Mhz? what voltage would it need?

I wouldn't be too concerned w/ the different timing tables, as what's important are the timings the manufacturer spec's the RAM to run at a certain frequency (in your case 9-9-9-24 at 1333MHz). SPD timings are sometimes set on the conservative side, which is why Easy Tune shows timings of 9-10-10-25 at 1372MHz. And it's impossible to say how much DRAM voltage would be necessary to run at a frequency of 1528MHz... there are too many variables involved. You'll just have to experiment yourself, and find the tightest timings at the lowest voltage possible to be Memtest / OCCT / Prime, etc. stable at any given frequency.
