I use this configuration, but userbenchmark does not correctly detect it; however 3 of the 4 2400 sticks were able to achieve 2750 Ghz; however, to use all i was limited to 2650 Ghz which is what the run at now, they are fast, cheap, and never had any problems with them. http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Intel-Core-i7-5820K/Rating/2579#Benchmarks http://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/3575852 Unsure about the glitch in userbenchmark however.
