Solved What does it mean when ram is "highly overclockable"? Tags: RAM Build Corsair Graphics Last response: June 26, 2014 8:11 AM in Memory Share ImReadyD151 June 26, 2014 7:34:31 AM Looking at different ram for my build, probably getting 2x4gb sticks of corsair vengeance ram, but I saw this phrase pop up more than once. What does it mean? Is it the speed? More about : ram highly overclockable Reply to ImReadyD151 Best solution Eduello June 26, 2014 7:40:53 AM It means that the RAM is advertised to be very stable and hence very good for overclocking it. If you're not into overclocking, it doesn't really benefit you at all. Reply to Eduello Share oxiide June 26, 2014 7:41:18 AM Overclocking RAM refers to increasing its clock frequency beyond the factory default. For instance, setting the frequency from 1600 MHz (DDR3-1600) up to 1866 MHz or higher. Yes, basically, it is speed. Whether it actually makes the RAM noticeably "faster," though, is a lot less clear sometimes. Side note: Is this really a question for the Graphics & Display forum?
