You won't really see any difference. When you say difficulties, what do you mean. Try dropping the timings to something like 9-9-9-24, then dropping the divider to get them to the 2000MHz. What voltage are you running the RAM at? 1.64 may be needed, as may a bump in the VTT.

What is the SPD on that memory? note: not that that is always correct....

but as said lower the timmings those are pretty tight IMO...

yeah i have them set at default of 9-9-9-24 wouldnt try anything lower lol, voltage wise been trying 1.65, if i increase it to 1.67 it can boot to windows but crashes.

If you use CpuZ you can see the SPD timmings given by the manufactory.

see picture,



Also don't try to go any higher on the memory Voltage, not recommended...
