hey guys Here is a little info on the new gskill flare kit, in the past i have always been very anti-psc, i really dont enjoy trying to clock these kits.... On the AMD thuban platform these sticks are actually very impressive, good clocks, good performance product and best of all, home users can achieve these clocks on air, you don't get much gain from cpu and ram both on ln2 than you do with all air, volts don't really scale at all either... the result? a perfect kit for 1050mhz 24/7 clocks on your well overclocked thuban cpu... what i always love about getting back onto the amd platform is how logically things work, and thuban memory clocking is no exception to that. it is just the same as deneb except you get this nice boost past 950~ right up and beyond 1100mhz.. all the following results are done with air on cpu and rams, stock cooler on cpu, a few scattered noctua fans.. Setup: GSKILL FLARE 16000 7-9-7-24 2T ASUS Crosshair 4 Formula ASUS M4A89TD PRO Corsair 1000W AMD Thuban 1090 definatly a good looking module and if you are running anything asus rog or evga (im thinking p55) then they will look good in your rig.. My performance results with both ASUS motherboards are identical so I will present one set of results, give or take 5+ mhz if you put these sticks in either board. My stability test is based on 10 loops of LinX at the pictured settings. First let me say 2T is not required, if you want to run 4 modules then to push the same frequencies it might be required, but on both these asus boards I tested I could do everything at 1T, 2T gave me a few more MHz but nothing dramatic. Max validation is 1109 MHz, but retardly cpuz has overriden my max memory validation because at a lower memory speed the CPU SPEED is higher.. 7-9-7-20 1T 1075 mhz pass 1100 mhz fail 7-8-7-20 1T 950 mhz pass 975 mhz fail this actually crashes here at loop 7 but gives a good indication that there is hardly any scaling with these modules at cas level, PSC is totally TRCD bound.. so forget your cas 6-11-6 world record, go push your TRCD instead, cas is so BH5 6-8-6-20 1T 6-7-6-18 1T 850 mhz pass 875 mhz fail 6-6-6-18 1T 750 mhz pass 775 mhz fail Some notes on this kit, price point is good for the performance, sub timings you can go fairly aggressive, and for anything except 32m this kit should be a real aggressive kit in competitive benching... i found i could hit all the high frequencies without really sacrificing any nb, with earlier PSC kits you had to have a very loose nb and trcd to push the kits..
