You can overclock your ram further to lets say 1600mhz, but it might cause crashes and BSODs. Manufacturers put the default speed on their ram as an indicator for the suggested speed for this exact model.
My suggestion, either get 1600mhz ram (or whatever ram speed you want) or leave it at stock speed, just so nothing breaks
Alright, thanks a lot guys. I was just a bit scare because almost every1 around here who is overclocking uses the 1600mhz rams.
So m good to go then. My goal is to OC my CPU to 4.7ghz, I'll give u the results after I bought the H100i. Thanks KrazyMe. Thanks Yotmam12. And sorry for the late reply guys
Ow. One more question. What would be the deference between me(with my 1333mhz) and someone with, say 1600mhz or, higher speed rams when overclocking?
Running an Ivy Bridge at 1333mhz may actually allow you a bump higher in your multiplier overclock as the CPUs heat from the memory controller will be lower at 1333mhz over 1600mhz, depending on the cooling you are running you may even reach 4.8ghz.
