Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3 1600MHz Memory Kit Review

When it comes to PC components bigger is almost always better. Memory definitely fits into the "more is better mantra" and Corsair has just the kit for you. Operating at a modest 1600MHz at low voltage, the 8GB Corsair Vengeance memory kit is begging to be overclocked and helping to create a faster system. Read on to see how this kit performs and what we think of it!

The Corsair Vengeance 8GB 1600MHz CL9 DDR3 memory kit is a great performer in every regard. Being able to overclock this memory kit easily to 1866MHz is huge! While it does not win outright in benchmarks it is narrowly behind. The results are so close that it would be tough to actually see the difference in everyday scenarios. Its true value lies in its cost per GB where at just $5 more provides double the capacity of the highest performing 2133MHz kit!

I bought these today but I am having trouble overclocking.
can someone point me in the correct direction?

the motherboard is an ASRock Z68 Extreme 4
when i set the memory speed to 1866MHz, it wouldn't boot. i set the voltage to 1.65V, timings to 9/11/9/27/2T.
weirdest thing is, i can run them at 1600 9/9/9/24/1T @1.35V stably.

any ideas?
