Timing your speed just right

Legit Reviews puts Corsair's TWINX Dominator Dual Channel 1800MHz DDR3 against it's self in a battle of timings.  It is rated to run with 7-7-7-20 at 1800MHz, but LR discovered that at 1333MHz, it can run at 4-4-4-12 timings.  Of course the obvious next step was to run it at those to speeds, as well as 7-7-7-20 at 1300MHz, to see what differences appear.

"The days of saying DDR3 memory can't run tight timings are long gone now that memory kits can run 1333MHz with 4-4-4-12

timings with a little extra voltage. It just goes to show that it is possible to run tight CL4 or CL5 timings on DDR3 and

it is likely that upcoming memory IC's might be able to improve on the frequencies at which these tight timings can be run.

The Corsair WIN3X2048-1800C7DFIN G DDR3 memory kit is the only DDR3 kit that I have seen run CL4 memory timings above
