    About £700-800 I think? That's a lot of money on memory...:eek:

    I am in need of more memory soon, and these do look mighty fine...

    Will have to do some counting to see if the monitor budget can take much of a hit to accommodate a set XD

    Im thinking of buying the 2x8gb 4133 kit to go with my z270 code and 7700k. The QVL list only shows the 4 dimm kits for 4133 though. Think these will work ok?

    anything above 3866Mhz requires not only the motherboard but also the IMC inside the CPU. 4133Mhz may or may not work straight out.

    Yeah I know it's luck of the draw how good the IMC is on the chip. What I want to know though is will I have to populate all 4 slots for this to work at XMP as that's all Asus list on the QVL.

    4 DIMM ASUS boards use T-branch layout which means 4 DIMM kits are normally easier to tune. I would not be buying a 4133 kit for the code. If you want those speeds, get the Apex.

    For what it's worth, these kits are really nice in the flesh!

    Had a little play with the 4266 kit last night. 4360c17 32m under 1.5v no problem. Ran 4400c17 for giggles but only passed 1m. PCH voltage nudge seems to help at higher speed. I'll dial these in for 4133 tight today but overall quite impressed.

    They ran stock at 1.325v (rated 1.4v) and 1t at 1.4v was no problem.

    HCI mem test 4300c17-17@1.45v easy.

    Wasn't expecting great things from what I've heard about the 4266 kits but these are faultless.

    That's not what you've been reporting on OCN ;)

    What would be the better choice from these two:

    F4-3200C14Q-32GTZR - CL14-14-14-34 or F4-3866C18Q-32GTZR - CL18-19-19-39 on the X99 platform

    This may be obvious, but can u combine 2x 16GB 4266mhz kits to make 32Gb? They don't have this option available so I wondering if there is a limitation with 32 GB at this speed.

    You should always use matched sets.

    I can confirm they don't. I bought 2 kits of 2x8gb @4133 Max I can get is 3733 with all 4 or 4000 with 2.

    As above I am hugely impressed with mine, I ended up going with the F4-3600C16Q-32GTZR which is working really well on my X99 build.
