Overclocking

Like much of the G.Skill kits I have had the pleasure of using over the past few years, all have had some extra room left in them for overclocking; this kit is no different. It is known that the P67 chipset is safe for continual usage with DIMM voltages up to 1.65, so this is where we set our voltage at in the BIOS of the system. Timings were left alone to see if the system would post with the frequency increased to 2133MHz. We had partial success with this as the system did boot, but was not stable using each of the benchmarks. We then played with the timings and loosened them a hair to 9-11-10-28. With this change we had complete success.
