So we have a thing like this, looks great and all - dual-rank 8 gbit Sammy B running at a chilly 1.63v
Bit of a pain to set up, requires a fan, questionable long-term (12+ hour high-intensity workload) stability.

Thus I raise a question to the folks that peruse the place:
How much performance do you expect to see me drop, if I was to lower these values to something much more reasonable?

2x16 GB 3200 CL14-14-14 kits weren't particularly expensive, back when I last looked, and they're more than capable of doing "easy" 3800 16-16-16 at 1.46v with less pushed subtimings.

what's it gonna be??


I'll go run some Tests(tm) after some votes pour in, even if I already have a vague idea of what it's going to be.

I can't speak for the 5000 series of CPUs, but for the 3000 series running RAM at more than 3600 didn't yield any significant performance differences. This was my take-way from:
