    Question GSkill 16GB DDR3 Overclocking

    I want to overclock my Gskill Ripjaws 16GB to 1866MHz. When I go to the BIOS it says 1600MH. How do I get it to 1866MHz to use it at its fastest speed with low timing?

    Bclk (base clock) a.k.a. FSB are tied to memory multiplier, if you crease the Bclk the memory frequency will increase as well.

    How do you know your memory can run that fast?

    You have to do trail and error, tweaking its specs as well, you don't expect just select that speed and expecting it to run.

    It is very unlikely you will get 1866MHz.1700MHz or so is more realistic but if you get it post the screen shot. That would be wonderful. I thini the native frequency of your CPU is 1066 so 1866 would be tough.... the performance difference from 1700MHz to 1866MHz is less than .01% in mist apps anyhow. You will not notice the difference as benchmarks will not also.

    @razrbullet, I just purchased 16 GB of G.Skill's new sniper series that is 1866MHz. with timings of 9-10-9-28. I rebooted in default settings and then installed ram and I switched my Bios to XMP (which the Sniper series have) and there was the 1866 and the timings are just as they packaging says. Flawless, fast and it is pretty cool to see 16GB, but I have no idea when programs will ever require that much, except for video rendering and or photo editing.
