    Best settings to overclock DDR4 3200 G.Skill?

    So I have Gskill Trident Z 3200 MHz memory. it came with the timings 16-16-16-28. I have overclocked my 6700k to 4.7ghz @ 1.410 vcore. Very stable. I have my VCCIO set to 1.2375 and my SA voltage to 1.2375 as well. CPU Vcore is set to 1.390.

    On cold boots and occasional restart I get Q code 55. So I know that I haven't tweaked the overclock on the memory properly. I have it set to 3466mhz right now and I know that 3600mhz should be easy.

    My timings are set now at 16-18-18-38. Which is good until 3600mhz I have heard, after that it needs 17-18-18-38. Just wanted to see what you guys think I should do to get the ram more stable.

    I have the same memory clocked to 3200 Mhz. Just for reference my ASUS Z170i Pro Gaming's XMP profile for it is 16-16-16-36 @ 1.35 V. I'm running with the XMP profile right now but plan to manually do it later. My 6700K is running at 4.6 Ghz @ 1.35 V at the moment.

    I've got some G.Skill with XMP of 3200 at 14-14-14-34 and this stuff goes pretty effortlessly to just shy of 3400 but not a bit beyond regardless of loosened timings. The more you work with DDR4, the more you'll probably find that there's very little performance to be gained tweaking with it.
