three sticks of CMGTX3 on X58?

Recommended Posts

Was just wondering if anyone has had good luck running this set in tri-channel on an X58? I am now using the Dominator 2000 mhz. set with no problems. I know that I won't be able to get 2400 speed out of them with my current 143 X 31 setup (980X),I use a 2:14 memory divider now to hit 2000 on my memory. I was thinking on trying a 2:16 which would give me 2288 memory if the Dominator® GT — 2GB DDR3 Memory (CMGTX3)

SKU# CMGTX3 would work. I already use +300 on my vtt, which comes out to almost 1.60 with no problems at all. Thanks for any input on this. I am always looking for a "little more" speed, like most, and don't mind spending the money on three of these if anyone has run it like that before.

Kinda off topic but you do know that Intel max for VTT is 1.35 don't you? 1.6 is taking a huge chance of burning out the mem controller. Even Jacob Freeman (product guru) on EVGA forums doesn't run that high and he's on water.

Have been running +300 vtt for over a year, no problems at all.I also am on water, and I believe Jacob is running 1600 memory.For 2000 you need more vtt to be stable.In fact, when I first got the sticks, I loaded XMP and thats what it gave it was +300. I don't use XMP though. I was just looking to see what they wanted. From the looks of the reply's I have gotten on this post, I guess I shouldn't dive into that memory.

OK, my bad. Looks like you have everything under control.

Well, looks like a no-go. They WILL run @2400 with XMP enabled which puts in a 170X20 for the CPU, but that's it. Any attempts of overclocking the CPu just won't do it.Sending them back for a refund at Newegg. At least I tried. My 980X just won't cut it with it's weak imc. Tried messing with it for hours on end. They would probably kick butt on a P67 setup I bet.
