I don't understand why the 1600 is faster than 1866 in sup pi 1m??

Can anyone shed any light?

Good question. Pi 1M is usually a pretty poor measure of how fast a setup is but that is a little odd.

As above really, SuperPI 1m usually throws up unpredictable results and shouldn't really be included but it if I didn;t include it people would be asking where the 1m times are :S. The dominator was the first kit I tested back when i7 was first released so something dodgy might have been going on in the BIOS. Thankfully 32m shows a better more apt outcome.

Are you able to set the gt dominators at 1600 and the same timings to see if the results are still the same? The newer bios may be bloated and have a detrimental effect of sup pi scores.

The Dominator brand from Corsair just set the record for fastest ddr3 and as a 6gb kit

LOL I doubt very much you will be seeing this kit in a competition, that is unless Jimbo is feeling exceptionally generous.
