Hi all.
I'm no expert in ram.

Can I overclock my Vengeance if my cpu is not one of the "k" series (i5-2500)?

If yes, then how to do so?

I believe you can, but i suggest you shouldn't... i overclocked my Vengeance 4x4GB ram and within a day's time a stick stopped working..

The benifits aren't much, it isn't much of a difference in gaming atleast, i do not know about other applications which will benefit from a increase in RAM "100 MHz increase at max"

Thank You for your input Sir, much obliged.

But I need a definitive answer.

What DRAM? 1333 - sure, 2666 - No, the Vengeance comes in a wide variety of models, freqs, CLs, etc

Mine is of the Cl9.. 8G (4+4),9-9-9-9-24...Probably either clocked at 1333 or 1600.. I want to bump up the block.. You can see it in the cpu z validation bottom right

If you can find model # or something to work with....can try, vague 1600 or 1333 could be a bunch of sets, good luck

Best solution

OK, could try, enable XMP and select profile 1, save boot back to BIOS, then change DRAM freq to 1866, base DRAM timing to 10-10-10-27, and set DRAM voltage to 1.575 (or as close as it allows, if no joy, try raising the MC (memory Controller) voltage to 1.1 (not sure what mobo, if a P67 then MC voltage is probably listed as VCCIO voltage, if Z77 mobo then prob as CPUVTT , anyway, if no joy let me know the mobo model

It is z77.

I'm going to try what you have told :)  will be back with results..


However, in the bios, I simply changed the DRAM frequency to 1866 (without selecting the XMP profile or changing the voltages), saved it, rebooted and cpu z now shows :
Size8192 MB
Type DDR3-1866 - Dual Channel
Frequency 933.4 MHz (1:7)
Timings 9-11-11-28
Slot #1 ModuleCorsair - 4096 MB (10700)
Slot #2 ModuleCorsair - 4096 MB (10700)

Is it fine?? Can you kindly have a look at the validator...

Thanks man.. However i tried bumping it up to 2016 MHz or something like that, computer rebooted 2 times :p  what the heck was that??? :D  I again changed it to 1866 MHz and every thing was peaceful again

To get up there (2000+) prob would need to kick voltages up, if it was a K model and you had a slight OC on it, then the MC (memory controller) voltage would be a little higher already from the CPU OC (the MC is in the CPU) then might have to add DRAM voltage
