So far this ram had been rock steady at it's default 1600 Mhz 9-9-9-24 1.5v settings. Initially I used a command rate of 2T, but this ram happily operates at a command rate of 1T @ the above settings, this increases the performance a bit. So far I am very impressed with this ram, and I haven't even tried overclocking it yet, but to be honest I probably won't.
I have had much success with not only with overclocking my Phenom II, but overclocking the CPU's Northbridge memory controller (2000 default > 2600). This means that the memory bandwidth has increased substantially, benchmarks have proven this, and this is the reason that I don't feel the need to attempt to overclock this ram at the moment. The ram performed admirably during the Northbridge overclock, with no instability.
Anyway, this is excellent ram at a good and fair price. Recommended.
