Dont bother with the 2000Mhz Ram thats for sure. I am not alone in saying that I have tried everything to get the system to run stable and not achieve the stated frequency. The best I can get is 1860 with 2000 Mhz ram because of CPU (960) memory control issues.

Your PC may or may not overclock to 4.0 GHz. depending on many factors including your specific CPU/Mobo/RAM/PSU/VID, etc. See my signature.


The i7-930 has an officially support RAM speed of 1066 MHz. but may run at a higher frequency with proper BIOS settings? The TR3X6G1600C8D is rated to run up to 1600 MHz. at 8-8-8-24 2T @ 1.65V on the i7 platform so this should work fine. You would need to manually set the BIOS options to run the RAM overclocked to 1600 MHz.
