Solved Is It worth Overclocking RAM? Tags: Memory Overclocking Performance RAM Last response: August 16, 2012 7:10 AM in Overclocking Share jordan2323 August 16, 2012 5:44:48 AM I have a RipJawz X-series 8GB ram and its at 1600. If I change it to anything higher will there be that much performance increase that it will be worth it? Also will it shorten the lifespan of the RAM?

Get the answer super-smashman August 16, 2012 7:10:45 AM I had not been able to overclock my G.Skill Ares 2133MHz RAM for the longest time until I realized I had to raise the voltage on the memory controller. Now that it's nice and stable the ONLY thing I notice being different is that Alt-Tabbing is actually slightly faster than before. Unless you're doing tasks that are bound by memory speeds (read rofessional) you really wont see the benefit and chances are greater that you'll just destabilize your system. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
