I was really surprised to see what these lovely sticks did today. This is the Mushkin Ridgeback 1600MHz 6-8-6-24 kit. On AMD, it is extremely difficult to run any ram above 2000MHz. Well today I broke a personal record and clocked these sticks all the way up to 2240MHz 8-10-6-15-1T. I used my trusty Gigabyte 890FXA-UD5 & Phenom II X6 1090T Setup.
I did not expect these results at all, actually I did not expect my IMC to allow speeds this high. Turns out I have a great hardware combination. When I was in the BIOS the speeds just kept going up and up. I eventually tightened the timings down to CAS8…which I thought was amazing for a frequency of 2240MHz.
