yeah, I didn't put that into consideration. I figured if they were the same kit, they might work. Didn't realize that 4 sticks binned together would make such a difference. Not sure I want to go through the trouble of buying a new set, then returning the 2 new sticks, then ebaying the old 2 also.
Maybe I should just hold out until a new bios revision or X570 and Ryzen gen 3 to come out this summer and just hope all 4 sticks will run well.
They're stable now at 2800 at 1.4 volts... it's probably a 10% difference in games and a few other things I'm doing.
Hey, I've got that RAM! Well, I have the CL15 version, anyway. Dumb question: Have you tried any of The Stilt's settings? I've got 4x3600CL15 running at 3333CL14 thanks entirely to The Stilt's presets. I've yet to have any luck with Ryzen DRAM calculator, but it's the gold standard for overclocking so it's a good choice for everybody but me. Let me know how things turn out, I'll be curious to know what you can get! 😄
What's the safest max voltage for ddr4? 1.5v? because I have a stable system at 1.45v at 3333mhz. If I can run that 24/7, I'd be pleased.
1.5V with DDR4 RAM is excessive. Max is 1.35v for longevity. Keep an eye on their temperatures.
I'm not quite sure that's true. There are DDR4 kits rated for 1.4v 24/7 usage ... and the max tech spec for ddr4 is 1.5v. I've got my 4 sticks at 1.425v @ 3333Mhz, so I'll be sticking with that for now.
