Corsair Dominator CMP6GX3M3A1600C8 actual speed :)


Recommended Posts

I have 6 2gb modules. I bought 3 modules a few months ago and other 3 modules recently.


Even though they're rated 8-8-8-24 CR2 @1600 mhz I'm actually running them at 8-8-7-20 CR1 @ 1600mhz.


I wonder how low can I go. Anyone tested them?


Another curiosity: the 2 3 dimm sets have different SPD...


You can see all modules SPD here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1587166/Corsair%20Dominator%20CMP6GX3M3A1600C8.zip


Modules 0, 2 and 4 were bought first.

Modules 1 ,3 and 5 were bought last.

You would get better performance with the TRAS set to a higher number and if the TRAS is set to aggressively you will start to get corrupt data on the HDD.

TRAS should be set to CAS + TRCD + TRP which in your case would be 23, but I have found this being set a little higher will actually increase memory performance in memory benchmark, so op[timum setting would be 23-30 for TRAS.


And TRP will have little effect on performance but if any setting is set to aggressive the system may become unstable or corrupt data.
