My comment has nothing to do with the article and everything to do with the "WTF were they thinking that that SATA connector design? Like WTF? I can't see how you can plug in the inside set of connectors! they would hit each other? I don't see how you can cable mode that to look nice? XD
Yes and no. Yes, data is steamed out at 6666 but other timings are almost identical. And they could not be changed cause of DRAM hardware. For example CL-18 @4000 == CL-31@6666.
For me this 6666 tells more about motherboard then DRAM.
When overclocking do they also measure FCC compliance?
