Cool OCZ Platinum DDR3-1333 OCZ3P1333LVA6GK Animal Series @2000-2232Mhz!




OCZ Platinum DDR3-1333Mhz 7-7-7-24 (OCZ3P1333LVA6GK 'Animal Series') memory modules are Micron DDR3-1866-2000Mhz CAS9 binned ICs sprinkled into the regular OCZ Platinum DDR3-1333Mhz series and are differentiated by the 'A' in the product code.
  • OCZ3P1333LVA6GK = Animal Series with Micron DDR3-1866-2000Mhz CAS9 binned ICs
  • OCZ3P1333LV6GK = Regular OCZ Platinum DDR3-1333Mhz.

Update: 08/08/09 - Tony from OCZ has reported the Animal series kits have revised ICs, instead of Micron 2000Mhz binned ICs, they now can be any ICs which are capable of doing 1866Mhz speeds but dropped into Animal based OCZ Platinum 1333Mhz OCZP1333LVA6K SKU model. Straight from Tony:
By Tony
The batch you guys are seeing out there now is 1866 Platinum, rebadged at 1333 animals, they may be Elpida, Samsung, PSC or Micron, infact anything that met the spec for 1866 plats.

The first batch was cas 9 2000 rated Microns, these soon sold out and yield went down, I pushed 1600 animal to 2000 spec and 1333 to 1866, ofcouse this does not mean you guys will not see 2000+ from them with a little extra voltage, it just means they failed our 2000 bin spec and made the 1866 spec instead.
Let's see how these modules do on Asus P6T6 WS Revolution.

Back to Back CAS# Delay was left on AUTO which defaults to value of 0. The default Command Rate (DRAM Timing Mode) when set to AUTO seems to change to 2T at high memory frequency CAS9 memory clocks. So I decided to run DDR3-2000Mhz 9-9-9-24 2T first and then manually set to 1T DRAM Timing Mode for a 2nd set of benchmarks as follows:
  • DDR3-2000Mhz 9-9-9-24 2T at 1.66v vdimm, 1.50v QPI/DRAM (CPU VTT uncore voltage)
  • DDR3-2000Mhz 9-9-9-24 1T at 1.66v vdimm, 1.50-1.51875v QPI/DRAM (CPU VTT uncore voltage)
Super Pi 1M, 32M, Everest Ultimate bandwidth tests for 2T managed with QPI/DRAM of 1.50v only 1T config's Hyper Pi 8x16M Pi test required bumping QPI/DRAM from 1.50v to 1.51875v

Continue testing of 6GB OCZ Platinum DDR3-1333Mhz 7-7-7-24 (OCZ3P1333LVA6GK 'Animal Series') kit but with voltage bumps for single Super Pi 32M stability.

For DDR3-2058Mhz 9-9-9-24 1T I tested different Back to Back CAS# Delay values, AUTO (0) vs 6 vs 10. B2B value of 8 for some reason resulted in memtest86+ v2.11 test #2 errors while the other values of AUTO (0), 6 and 10 didn't have such errors. 32M Pi difference between B2B AUTO (0) and 10 was only 3.063 seconds slower at 10 but a 17.6% and 9.96% drop in Everest Read and COPY bandwidth respectively. For DDR3-2108Mhz 9-9-9-24 1T at 1.74v I only tested B2B value of AUTO (0).

DDR3-2170Mhz 9-9-9-24 1T at 1.74v vdimm

Max CPUZ Validation was done with same settings as for above DDR3-2108Mhz benchmarks. Yes that's right 4343Mhz validation at 1.408v vcore HT Enabled not bad for old C0 stepping

DDR3-2232MHz 9-9-9-24 1T at 1.84v


Starting to get a better understanding of P6T6 WS Revolution board, managed to pull off higher cpuz validation of DDR3-2232Mhz 9-9-9-24 1T and Super Pi 1M @DDR3-2160Mhz 9-9-9-24 1T both at 1.84v with CPU VTT (QPI/DRAM) of 1.65v.

They're also capable of DDR3-1600-1760mhz 7-7-7-24 at 1.60-1.66v on P6T6 WS Revolution http://i4memory.com/117786-post4.html

OCZ3P1333LVA6GK 'Animals' CAS8 Overclocking


My first hour messing around with CAS8 overclocking with OCZ3P1333LVA6GK 'Animal' and was a walk in a park to pull off single Super Pi 32M @DDR3-1954Mhz and validation @DD3-1997Mhz 8-8-8-24 1T all at same 1.70v vdimm voltage.

@DD3-1997Mhz 8-8-8-24 1T at 1.70v






@DD3-1954Mhz 8-8-8-24 1T at 1.70v


click image for full screenshot





System:


OCZ3P1333LVA6GK 'Animals' CAS8 Overclocking continued....

Improved on previous max 8-8-8-24 1T clocks of DDR3-1997Mhz validation and DDR3-1954Mhz for Super Pi 32M at 1.70v. Managed validation @DDR3-2080Mhz 8-8-8-24 1T at 1.76v and Super Pi 32M @DDR3-1990Mhz 8-8-8-24 1T at 1.76v (seems 200bclk with DDR3-2000Mhz gets 5-10 errors on test #5 loop in memtest86+ v2.11).

Interesting thing is BACK To BACK CAS# Delay subtiming optimal values for this clock are either 4 or 8. AUTO, 6, and 10 result in less stability for these memory modules.

@DDR3-2080Mhz 8-8-8-24 1T at 1.76v






@DDR3-1990Mhz 8-8-8-24 1T at 1.76v

Been asked where you can buy these modules, and in Australia they aren't stocked but your can grab them from PGN in USA who ship to Australia etc http://www.priceguidenetwork.com/ocz...333lva6gk.html US$125.

Quick 32M Pi bench pushing these OCZ Platinum 1333 Animals to DDR3-1702Mhz 7-7-7-24 1T at:
  • 1.66v vdimm, 1.40v CPU VTT (QPI/DRAM) for default 3404mhz Uncore frequency
  • 1.74v vdimm, 1.60v CPU VTT (QPI/DRAM) for 20x multi Uncore frequency of 4255mhz
As most folks know as you overlock the Uncore (NB) frequency you'll need more vdimm voltage to get stable. But as with DFI UT X58 uncore frequency tests, Asus P6T6 WS Revolution needs more CPU VTT uncore (QPI/DRAM) voltage as well. You can see more Uncore frequency comparisons here. Asus P6T6 WS Revolution certainly needs alot more CPU VTT uncore volts to reach similar bclk/uncore/mem frequencies than on DFI UT X58-T3EH8 though!
