Hey guys so i recently bought a 16gb (2x8) Team Xtreem DDR3 White 2666mhz kit on eBay and it wasn't cheap. So basically i actually can run it @ 2666mhz BUT! at that speed it only works at the default timings of 11-13-13-35. If I change even one timing number it corrupts windows and isn't stable. I used MaxxMEM2 and AIDA64 Extreme and found running the sticks @ 2400mhz with 9-12-11-30-260 gives me the best performance. I am using a 3770k @ 4.7ghz on a P8Z77-V PRO.
My question is according to this thread https://www.overclock.net/threads/g-skill-rip … mhz-oc.1796120/ the fastest ddr3 ram possible is Corsair Dominator 1600mhz C8 2gb sticks. He says you can overclock them to 2600mhz 8-11-11-32. Is that actually true or would I even notice the C8 latency difference vs. the C9-12-11 I'm using now? They're certainly cheap enough on eBay so if it will make some kind of performance difference I'm in.
