We will be installing this memory in one of our P67 systems. It is comprised of the following components.
Processor: Intel i7-2600K
Motherboard: ASUS P8P67 Deluxe Motherboard
Graphics: Sapphire Radeon HD6450 FleX
Installing everything was pretty simple, the heatspreaders do not go over the memory modules that far at all, so you should be able to use this kit with larger CPU coolers.
Once you have the kit installed you can go into the BIOS and enable the X.M.P. profile which will set the timings, voltage and frequency. After you boot your system up go ahead and open up CPU-Z and see if everything is correct. You can also check out the SPD chart.
Overclocking memory on Intel P67 system is very easy as you can overclock the memory independently from the CPU. I first tried to boot the system with the memory running at 1866MHz with the 9-9-9-27 timings. The system did not boot at all, so I decided to loosen the timings up to 10-10-10-27. The system booted just fine and I ran a stability test to see if everything was good and it was. I tried to bump things up again to 2133MHz but that was not possible at all. So the max overclock was 1866MHz, which was a little disappointing.
