    Can I ask why you wish to do this? It usually yields very little performance gains in terms of real-world speed.

    Overclocking your memory is just like overclocking any other part of your system. As you increase its speed, you need to increase its voltage. However, if you are already at the 1.65v region, you may wish to look at loosening your timings instead although from your specs, you would benefit more from tighter timings and slower speeds compared to higher speed with looser timings. AMD CPUs prefer tight timings and lower speed to make up for it over high MHz and loose timings, unless you're using the APU then it is a mixture of the two.

    Just learning how to do things, was just wounder on how to do it, i understand that it won't change much, but just was looking at on how to do it, my voltage is currently at 1.5v

    Using the APU as in for Graphic's? and Tightening my timing would be lowering the 9-9-9-47?, LOL i am pretty new to all this, last time i did anything like this the P4 had just came out. so like i said i am New =)

    Hey Matt,

    You can overclocking your RAM by using the freq settings in the bios. There should be preset settings and manual settings, however sometimes to get the ram stable, you will need to make small adjustments to timings (tighter or looser timings). What I would do is google the RAM you have and see what others have used as for as timing goes. This will give you a baseline number and set of timings to work off of.

    The timings can vary but each set of RAM, however the baseline will get you started. Getting it exactly how you like it can take time, but as I previously mentioned (by email), if you are looking to go higher on the freq, it will require a overclock on the CPU part to get things running smoothly and see any performance gain. I think you will benefit more just by overclocking the CPU itself.

    No problem, learning is all part of the fun. Try to google and see what others are using as far as timing goes and what freq. This will give you a baseline to start with. But I think you should be able to OC without having to mess with it to much and just going into the bios and upping the freq. Just watch your voltages and the new AMD APU platforms tends not to like higher voltages. Maybe not a high OC, but something that you can maybe run a few before and after benchmarks to see what kind of performance boost you got.

    Cool, will have to see what programs Vinny gave me, and see if i have one for RAM, if not i am sure i can grab something from him. Thanks, and have a good Night.

    i have been unable to locate something with stated numbers, they just state that you will need to do basicly what you stated above Kenny, would someone be able to point me to a site that has numbers listed, other then this site that is. Thanks.

    I find it so much fun to overclock memory and tweak it. Setting timings and voltage is so fun! I've learned so much from it!
