G.skill ram from 1333 to 1600 safe OC ?

Hi there Here are my basic specs:

cpu = i5-3470

RAM = (G.SKILL Value Series 4GB 1333 CL9 1.5v + G.SkILL RipJaws 4Gb 1600 CL9 1.5v) work together on 1333MHZ

Mb=Gigabyte p61a-d3

Vga=sapphire 7850-2GB OC

i need to overclock g.skill Value Series 1333MHZ to 1600MHZ (without change voltage) this is safe OC ? and it will make any damage to my ram in future

thanks guys and sorry to my bad english :]

    If you stick with stock voltages then it shouldn't reduce the life of the ram with such a small overclcok.
  4. It's always good to use temperature monitoring programs when you overclock. You should understand what "safe" temperatures are for your system components.

    Whatever you do, don't up the voltage on your ram. Changing clock speed is probably fine, but will very likely make your system reboot and cause instability. You can "overclock" by both changing CAS timings and the frequency. You might search for the guides on the internet.
