I was wondering what timing or frequency i should over clock my 8 gigs of 1600mhz gskill ares ram to. This is my first time overclocking ram. And if mother board is important im on the asrock z77 extreme 4 with an i5 3570k oced to 4.5 (changed the multiplier not the bus speed)

It's really a waste of time.

You won't see any difference between your stock speed of 1600mhz and anything above it.

Mostly for benchmarking purposes, and showing off.

Best option is NOT to OC your memory modules, as they can cause big stability issues if damaged via overclocking.

Hi, when you OC the cpu does it automatically increse the speed of cpu memory controller. If it does for instance increase the cpu memory controller from 1600 to 1866 then isnt the cpu delayed by the lag in the rams response time if the ram is at 1600. If this is the case, is it advisable to get 1866 ram opposed to OC'ing 1600 and thereby risking instability . I know the performance between 1600 and 1866 is neglible but will slower ram impact the faster OC i5 3570k cpu?
