    Default Easy way to "improve" ur RAM?

    Guise halp me, I need to know what was your stock CLOCK timings for your ram and what you use now? Can I decrease 1-2 clocks on CAS, TRCD, TRP and 4-6 on TRAS without any harm at all?

    Also where's that leet guide about ram frequency oc ?

    Tightening timings does not hurt anything but too tight of timings may create instability. Run memtest or a stress test. Higher frequencies yield little performance gain and may inhibit the CPU overclock due to instability. When I overclock, I get max OC on CPU 1st then play with memory via dividers, multis and FSB including voltages......

    DrDeath is right. A RAM OC should be considered sprinkles on the CPU OC cake, not another cake entirely. Sprinkles without a cake are useless, and a cake without sprinkles can still be good.

    It's a long process - keeping the voltage within .5V of the IMC, juggling all the timings and frequencies and stuff. And in the end, the gains are negligible.

    I run my RAM at stock because it isn't worth the headache. Most RAM OC's differently, by the way. For example, I had one kit that could do timings of 5-5-5-5, while being undervolted, while I've had other kits that need insane voltage to run stock.

  4. The following user thanks logan For this above post:
