Ram OC tips

Hello,
I got some 1600 cl 11 ram at 1.5v that i wants to oc to around 1600 cl9.
I have a i3 4330 and a gb board with the new bluish bios.
Got memtest on a usb ready.
I found the first 4 latency, and switched them to 9-9-9-24. But what do i do with the rest?
and how much voltage should i increase per try?
I dont care if the ram dies earlier (gives me a reason to swap them), but will it reduce the life span of the cpu? And haswell should do fine up to 1.65v right?

  1. Simple to see, set DRAM voltage to 1.60, and the timings as you mentioned (might however change the 24 to 27) and give them a try, if no joy raise the MC (memory controller) voltage
  2. These are ball park figures. Play within the neighborhood of these numbers. I always leave command rate at 1t some like to change it to 2t when OCing. Numbers I dont have listed, I usually leave on auto
    Try cl9 trcd 9 trp 9 tras 24 trfc 60 cr 1
  3. Hi I wouldn't have high hopes of achieving those numbers.
    Download http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html and have a look at your kit in the spd tab.
    Your kit is stock 1600 cl 11 which is guaranteed to run at those numbers from the manufacturer.
    I don't know what kit you bought , you might get some tighter timings at 1600,or maybe higher speed with looser timings.
    Don't know!
  4. +1 for davcon. I've got my 1600mhz ram running at 1387mhz with 7-7-7-20-59-1 timings. I am more a fan of low latency than high MHZ
  5. ^^^+1 Exactly!
    Otherwise @ Yingda Wang you should have bought a cl 9 kit which is the most common latency at 1600.
    For the most part I don't think you'll notice much of a difference if your ram is cl 9 or 11 for the majority of your pc use.
  6. Just benchmarks

    I told my friend to get the cheapest 1600mhz ram out there, forgot to mention the latency... So he got the cl11 instead of the cl 9 which was 5$ more expensive..

    Not a big deal!
    Just set your kit up in bios so it will run 1600.
