Hi guys. I need some professional opinion.

I have G.Skill Sniper 1866MHz 9-10-9-28 @ 1,5v but I keep it at 8-10-9-28

I clocked it up to 2133MHz 10-11-10-28 @1,6v without any problems. So what I'm asking is what is safe overclocking on these?

I have a Sabertooth P67 and i7 2700k @ 4,8GHz 1,4v

Memtest you say... I keep them under water and I am fairly new to computers so I ask, how can I do a memtest and measure the temps??

sandybridge imc needs a lot of voltage to get much over 2200mhz mate so im not sure i would try and go over 2133 by much.

see if you can get 2133 cas 9, maybe 9-10-9 or 9-11-10 idk the sticks so...

if you look at the stuff pctwin did cas 9 2133 is better to run but the differences are not huge.

9-11-10 is what i run my redlines at but i was able to oc my lovos to 2133 on 9-10-9, ic varies from brand to brand and they each like it their own way.
