think someone put it up, i thought i saw it but there is a deal on the 16gb 3000mhz black lol
Racist. Where's the deal for the black versions?
I love cheese
I have this set and stuck them on 3200 effortlessly. Your results may vary depending on your MB etc.. I have a mini-ITX B450 Gaming build. I wacked them back on 3000 though because like you say, no real benefit except 1 extra fps in some games. Same reason I haven't messed with the timings... I'm sure I could tighten them, but for what real-world benefit? With a ITX build I'd rather have a balanced system running cool and efficiently than something running right on the edge all the time... just unessesary stress and heat on the components.
From the original spec for DDR4, before it was apparently updated. @nomnomnomnom Just been reading up and you were right, the specs were updated in 2017. Last system I built was a skylake in late 2016, not paid much attention since then, so my info was obviously out of date. However there is still some truth the it being marketing blurb as a lot of the ram still available predate the change, these ones definitely do as I have them in my skylake system.
