Default OCZ Gold 3x2GB Command Rate

Hey guys, i've been messing up a bit with my D0 again today and i have a question.

My memory is OCZ Gold DDR3-1600 8-8-8-24. Bought this memory because i really like OCZ memory for their bang for the buck. I got that kit 2 months ago for 100 CAD after mail-in(which i received by the way )

So here it is, when i had my C0 stepping, the Memory Controller was kind of weak and i had all the trouble in the world with my memory. Long story short, with very high QPI/VTT voltage, i managed to run my DRAM at stock settings. 8-8-8-24. I ran my Command Rate at 2T because 1T would BSOD during P95 Blend.

Now with my D0, i need way less QPI voltage but i still need to put my mem at 2T because it will BSOD in P95 blend otherwise.

Do you guys think i have another weak memory controller ( i run my mem at 1528 (764 Mhz)) or is the run unable to take Command Rate 2T whatsoever?

Thanks for your usual inputs.

If you cannot run 1T vs 2T it is obviously the Memory you have, nothing to do with your DO OC...Bclk etc etc...that RAM was $100...???...if your running at 1528 Mhz 9-9-9-2T I'd defintely be happy with that..especially for $100!

actually it's 8-8-8-24-2t.

Still good, and they are still pretty cheap.

OCZ Gold OCZ3G1600LV6GK 6GB DDR3 3X2GB DDR3-1600 PC3-12800 CL 8-8-8-24 Triple Channel Memory Kit - DirectCanada

They are 109.96 at Bestdirect or 89.96 with the mail-in. But i only had bad experience with Bestdirect so..i'd rater pay 10 more and receive my product in less than 4 weeks.
