I have purchased 4 x 2gb ddr3 dual channel memory for my build and am wondering if anyone has experience over-clocking these modules? I also want to ask a random question, is it worth it? will I see a significant performance increase if I had overclocked the memory from 1333 stock speed to 1600 OC speed? (f3-1066cl8d-4gbhk @ 1.5 v)
Im running an i5 4670k on a asus z87 pro motherboard with a 500 watt power supply. I have read a few guides and understand the very basics of over-clocking, but Im scared to just jump into it like I did with my first overclock. I actually attempted to change a bios setting to enable xmp, and win would not boot. Am I correct to assume that xmp has to do with Corsair memory only? will xmp mode work with these modules? will xmp alone at stock speed give me an increase of performance?
All in all, I watched a video about memory over-clocking and it seems the differences are rather small (between the speeds). thus, Ive come to the pros with these questions. Any help or guidance is greatly appreciated! thanks again@
