As you can well imagine – the Xtreem LV kit we are testing today with a frequency of 2400MHz and reasonably high CAS timings and 1.65v, there isn’t a great deal of headroom to boost things even further.

Pushing this kit proved very hard indeed but this is to be expected, bearing in mind the calibre and specifications. 2600MHz with 2T-11-11-30 at 1.73v did manage to boot into Windows but the system was extremely unstable.

Establishing that a frequency overclock was not on the cards I decided to lower the latencies at stock (2400MHz) to ascertain if this can be improved upon at all. Sadly though nothing would work in my favour even with voltage increased to 1.74v

As a result, we shall be testing this kit with just the stock settings configured under XMP – 2400MHz – 2T-9-10-10-28 at 1.65v.
