Change CR for 2600 mhz ram

I've managed to overclock my Kingston HyperX beast RAM to 2600 mhz but can't seem to keep it stable with a CR of 1. It's stable at CR 2. Can anyone provide me with any advice on how to proceed. Using 4 sticks of 4, timmings are 11-13-13-30. Block at 100, dram voltage 1.75v, IO at 1.20v.

If you analyse the equations that marshal has posted. Yes the lower the scores in any of the timings will increase your score.

Since you have analyzed the formula do you mind to share how did you calculate the DRAM Refresh Interval (tREFI)? Why did you put 180?

Memtweakit is a game, treat it that way. I did not say having a low refresh value was good. Only that if you analyze the formula the memtweak will score you lower with lower timings. Since the single largest value in the timings is the refresh (over 7000) lowering it dramatically increases your scrore. Maybe asus will change the program and remove it as part of the equation making a higher score more representative of better timings.

No use, even if it is on a notebook platform I7 only supports up to 1333 FSB, you're buying a 1600 memory can only be reduced frequency used for nothing more than to spend money.

Just to be clear BTW, I had no wish to criticize or question your score nor the route you took to achieve it, Samuel. I think owikh brings up good questions, and I appreciate how you have both made it clear that the high Memtweakit score is not absolutely representative of high RAM performance. I was just a little surprised after so many hours tweaking my Rig, to find that my score seemed to be so freakin low lol! You guys have cleared that up for me, and I'm grateful!
