Wow, almost too good to be true. Wish it was 3200 though.

the 3000Mhz Cl15 kit uses the exact same Micron Rev. E IC's as the 3200Mhz Cl16 kit.

Just set it at at 3200Mhz in the bios and you're good to go.

My 3000Mhz Cl15 kit is currently running at 3800Mhz Cl16 @ 1.45v

You could very likely run them at 3600Mhz Cl16 with stick volts (1.35v).

Much appreciated!!
Is it a big deal anymore to have matched pairs? I want 16gb but way cheaper to buy 2 x 8gb in this instance.

You mean buy two of these, or buy one of these to add to you existing 8gb? If you add this to an existing 8gb, it will only run at the speed of the lowest stick so check that. But you can buy 2 of these without issue.

Thanks McTabish. Yes I meant buying 2 X 8gb of these to make 16gb as a fresh 'install'. So basically I don't need to worry about them not being a 2x8 16gb "kit" then? Negligible difference?

What about the 3000 cl16 kit? These went before I had a chance to buy but can find the cl16 3000 for just over £56 for 2x8.

The 3000Mhz Cl16 kit is sadly not the same.

This is the version you want. Just buy two 8GB sticks.

Wow that is crazy, I just built my first pc last month with adata spectrix d60g ram, 3200mhz C16 and literally cannot overclock it at all. Tried using dram calculator for a safe overclock it still caused a boot red light on my mobo

Have you checked Taiphoon Burner to identify what IC's they are using?

AMD or Intel?

Looks like it's using Hynix M-Die, which do not scale a lot with added voltage. However, you should really be able to run them up to 3600Mhz Cl16.

Enable the 3200Mhz Cl16 XMP profile first, save and exit.

Back to bios and set your DRAM voltage to 1.4v and your Memory speed to 3600Mhz.

Save and exit.

See if that does any better?

Restarted again and didn’t crash but seemed very unstable. Had a black pixel on screen and applications wouldn’t load or just crash, should I try increasing voltage or forget it?

Which motherboard/cpu do you have?

What is your CPU SOC voltage currently set at? If if not already, set it at 1.1v in the bios and see if that improves stability..

I have the exact same motherboard with a 1600 AF.

No problem at all

In your bios, is GearDownMode enabled or disabled?

Make sure that GearDownMode is enabled and PowerDownMode is disabled.

Gear down mode set to ‘auto’ 🏻
Yuny_A16/02/2020 15:30

Definitely set it to enabled!

What is your CPU voltage?

Also, set these voltages manually..

CPU: ???
SOC: 1.1v
VDDP: 0.9v
DRAM: 1.45v (try)

If this doesn't work, lower the speed to 3466Mhz and try that..

If you have this RAM and running at 3200MHz, just leave it. Dont increase voltage etc. There is no benefit in moving from 3200 to 3600, at max may be 1fps difference in games which is nothing. So leave it at XMP setting or manually to 3200 and enjoy.
not bad though i remember 16gb being like 60 pounds back in 2016 so it hasent gone down much
computertechy16/02/2020 13:12

Wow, almost too good to be true. Wish it was 3200 though.


It was £25.99 yesterday.
