In the picture above we see the default timings of our PNY XLR8 kit, you can clearly see that this kit of memory is EPP ready with 3-4-4-8 timings.

And in this photo you can see that we were able to get the memory running 100% stable at 3-3-3-8 at the same 2.3v! Check the “Tight Timings” section for performance with the lower timings!

And finally we have the highest memory frequency we were able to reach with the PNY XLR8 on our Asus board. Keep in mind you’ll see much higher results on a 680i based board but this is still an impressive 1155MHz!
