    Question Overclocking Corsair Vengeance 32gb Kit

    I have 4 sticks of Corsair Vengeance 8gb DDR3 1866mhz ram for a total of 32gb. My motherboard is an Asus Rampage IV Extreme and I would like to overclock my ram to the best possible speed. I have tried using some of the build in presets to bump up the speed but everything I try will not stay stable. As of right now I am running at a default 1866mhz. I would appreciate anyone's help as I am new to overclocking and would really like to optimize my memory to the best possible stable speed for my setup. See my specs which should be visible.

    Thank you!

    Just put the memory multiplier on 2133hz and see if they run stable. If not, more voltage or loosen timings.


    And loosen means HIGHER numbers and tighten means LOWER numbers.

    Example:

    So if you have 1866MHz 9-9-9--24 and set them to 2133 9-10-9-27 --> so it's loosen... (same voltage tho...)
    And if they are 1.5V you can go to 1.65V with no problems. I would not go higher than 1.65V
    That said, you WILL NOT see any major improvement between 1600-1866-2133-2400-etc... for gaming... Only if you run a benchmark or Super Pi or something it will show you it's faster... but in real life you won't feel a thing
    That's because of the i3/5/7 technology... (easy saying)

    If you want more fps in games, buy another graphics card (SLI).

    FPS improvements between different RAM speeds:

    1333MHz --> 1600MHz is an increase in FPS (5-10fps)
    1600MHz --> 1866MHz is just another 3fps or so.
    1866 and above is no gain at all..

    Always look beyond the limits...

    How To Use MemTweakIt - Republic of Gamers may be of some help

    It can be a slight compatibility issue between MB Ram and cpu that causes issues so the first thing to do is raise mem volts by 0.05 and test. particularly because you are running 32GB

    second I would try is looking at which voltage settings are available in bios that pertain to IMC. Google them and learn what they do. In particular learn about VCCIO as I feel this is the one that will help you

    EDIT: sitting here with a cup of coffee and more time now....

    assuming you are using CMZ32GX3M4X1866C10 which has XMP 1.3 you should be able to use that XMP setting if you wish but first set the following:
    Rampage Tweak Mode 1
    VCCSA 1.25v

    As for overclocking, it will be a case of trying each speed bump with the same timings and if it fails ease those timings 1 at a time then run a heavy duty memory benchmark each time.

    Once you get to the higher frequencies you may need to start thinking about increasing Clock gen filter, DRAM voltage, Current cap and VTT .....it all depends on what you want to achieve and whether the mem chips and cpu will let you.

    If you can give us the version number of your sticks we may be able to tell what make of memory chip is installed and then have a better idea of what to aim for
