    Typo on page 6 cl 16 instead cl 36.

    edit also page 7

    I have this kit, and tweaked it's 52ns easy with 6000mhz. A few on OCN already running 6600mhz tweaked on this kit sub 50ns and 105GB+ bandwidth.

    Ps: active cooling (fan) is required :)

    I have so many questions as to how and why the ddr5 3200 cl36 can be faster than 5200 cl 40 in some situations.

    Auto values on 2 and 3. Timings may change when changing frequence :)

    Something seems wrong where most of the tests seemed to plateau despite some pretty major differences in frequency. It is possible (if not likely) that CPUs just don't need all the bandwidth of DDR5 though.

    @Hilbert Hagedoorn Any chance of doing iGPU RAM tests? Intel typically does a better job with VRAM than AMD but with modern high-res textures, I'm sure even DDR5 won't be fast enough. But only one way to find out!

    there is no ddr5 3200
    he probably tested 3200 c16
    and that can be faster for a simple reason - because of what intel calls gears (memory controller frequency)

    ddr4 3800 c15 in gear1 can run circles around ddr5 in gear2

    early ddr5 adopters really stepped into a giant crap.while I'll be running my ddr4 b-dies I got for 99eur with this and next platform.

    Ddr5 6600 c28 tweaked entered the chat ;)

    Why not testing 2133mhz ddr4 vs 5200mhz micron. Almost the same...

    Have you used XMP profile? I have got this DDR5 kit today as gift for Christmas time but I have seen on the web that many people have had some problems with the XMP profile having to change the voltage so as not to have crashes or instability

    Can anyone who owns this kit tell me if the XMP profile works without problems?

    I have got an Z690 Apex with Bios 0806

    Thanks

    There techinically is a jedec ddr5 3200, but thats besides the point, I don't think its a typo, since hilbert intentionally used the same timings at different speeds, Normally you would expect such a massive hit from doing something like that even with gear 1 , it looks like intel's memory controller is doing something funky,related to what @nizzen was talking about.

    Ddr4 performance for twice (or triple?) The price.

    Nothing to see here. Move along guys :)

    Any comment about the reports saying this board burns with this very ram?
