the memory is 4 gb 1333 Adata , can it be over clocked to 2000 ?

thanks

To 2000 MHz? I don't think so... a bit over 1333 MHz maybe. However, there's not much point, there's virtually no noticeable performance difference between 1333 MHz and 2000 MHz.

not for performance but to be able to OC the CPU to 4 GHz "according to the biostar manual" I must set the memory to 2000.

- what is the danger that can happen to the memory "as a hardware" ? or only windows will not be stable ?
- If I get 1600MHz memory can I over clocked it to 2000MHz ?

thanks

You don't need it at 2000 MHz normally... unless this is motherboard specific. If you run it too high, you may not boot to Windows or Windows might keeping crashing, and can be easily solved by changing the settings back.

Just try overclocking first...

If you have 1600 MHz memory then you may be able to get to 2000 MHz, maybe not though.

Just try first. I don't think you'll need to run your RAM at 2000 MHz...

I really don't see how if it's running at a lower speed which means it would be running more coolly.

when 1333 RAM over clocked to 2000 will be running at a lower speed ?

No no, if it's running at 2000 MHz it will be running at 2000 MHz, I'm just saying that running RAM at a lower speed, for example, 1333 MHz, means that the RAM won't be as hot.

ok then back to my earlier question , if I over clocked 1333 to 2000 my memory could be burned ? or get any permanent damage ?
