Ram OC

Hey guys,

I've got 2x4 G-Skill Ripjaws 1600mhz CL7 and I tried to OC them to 7-7-7-21-2N @ 1600mhz and it failed, then I tryed 7-7-7-21-2N @ 1333 mhz and it's fine.

My question is, is it more beneficial to OC the CAS or the mhz or leave it stock @ 7-8-7-24-2N @ 1600mhz?

  1. What else do you have for parts? If it's a i7 rig you might need more QPI/Dram voltage.

    Thanks for the reply,

    I've got an i72600k running on an Maximus IV Extreme rev 3.
  3. That is CAS 7 @ 1600 MHz RAM that you are using......Its beneficial on both sides as CAS 7 @1333 HMz is roughly equal to CAS 9 @1600 MHz...So if you could get the CAS 9@1600 MHz latency down to CAS 7@1600 MHz..Then that would roughly equal CAS 9@1866 MHz....BTW...that command rate could be changed to 1N and you will see a slight performance increase
