Corsair ddr3 1600 oc to 1800?

I have a couple of Corsair ddr3 1600mhz. Would there be any damages to my rams if I have it oc to 1800mhz? I have the option in bios to set the multiplier at 8 which will bring it down to 1440 or 10 at 1800. So would it be safe to put 10 and have it at 1800 at 1.64v or should I just leave it at 1440. In CPU-Z, In the memeory, it's showing my timings at:
DRAM Frequency 720.0mhz
FSB:D RAM 2:8
(LC) 10
(tRCD) 10
(tRP) 10
(tRAS) 26
row refresh cycle (tRFC) 80
(CR) 1T

and in SPD



Any ideas?

I have a feeling it won't run at 1800. But it can't hurt to try. I've tried a couple times o/c where I forgot to change my memory multiplier from 10, I usually o/c with turbo boost. And the cause of the reboots are memory timing.

My 1600MHz, CL8, 1.65V Kingston KHX1600C8D3K2 RAM runs at 180x8=1440MHz as well with voltage less than the max specification(1.575V) from Intel.

Hence, if your RAM is also set to 1440MHz, you should be able to stay within the max voltage without having to reach the absolute max(1.65V) which might cause permanent damage to your MB according to Intel's datasheet.

Thus, I suggest that you stay at the 1440MHz.

BTW, the latency has more impact than frequency on the performance of your RAM.

As long as you don't take it over 1.65v, try it, can't hurt. I've had my G.Skill 1600 to 1750 without a problem. You can even try to loosen the timing a little if it doesn't work the first time.

my experience is, i had been one hyper x ddr3 1600Mhz 2gig, single channel. i had overclocked it. it reached up till 1780Mhz. then i bought another one..same one. I successfully o.c up to 1800MHz. but it is not very stable. all i have done with not do any adjustment on voltage, just on frequency. the voltage is just 1.5v but it can operate up to 1.7v. So you can get 1800Mhz. dont hurt your hardware.

I have 6 X 2GB's of corsair TR3X6G1600C7D 1600 7/7/7/20. I currently have mine set to 1800MHz with 28 X 150 and it runs stable. I also have the dram v up to 1.7 volts to keep it that way. And the timings were changed to 8-8-8-26. Main thing you will need to keep in mind are the memory sticks temps. When you start increasing the voltage they will heat up some. The heat is what will cause the damage - granted, if you up the voltage to 2.5 volts that will fry it pretty quickly. And experience tells me that you will have to increase the voltage in order to overclock the memory that much. I have a memory cooler on mine and a Temp sensor on the middle ram stick so I monitor mine.

Do you have your CPU overclocked? If so that will make it harder to overclock the ram. If you are just overclocking the ram it might actually work.
