    Makes me wonder, witch (exactly - eg. product number) type of G.Skill Trident rams this overclocker used in bench to get 6-7-6-18 1T timings at 877MHz:

    Because I would like to buy them too. Any special settings (drive?) or voltage settings applied? Dunno. But beside they are likely to be 2G per module ones (the mobo don't have problem of running 12G of ram - 3x4G, so it is not like it see just half of them or something...), I have no idea witch ones to pick.

    Could somebody give me a hand...?

    (official timings for the 4G Trident DDR3-2400 modules are 10-12-12-31 at 1.65V, witch is pretty far from 6-7-6-18)

    I don't have a clue what they may be using.. but i know sometimes on the 1366 socket systems, that the timings can be reported incorrectly.... and that 867mhz is effectively 1734mhz... so hitting those timings with DDR3 2400mhz modules may not be too far fetched.

    Plus... some RAM have 2 XMP profiles (one usually hidden) Here is What AIDA64 found for mine:

    So the RAM in the OP may not actually be doing anything special other running at a hidden SPD profile that the owner found using AIDA64 (or some other way)
