hi all, i need some help on overclocking my ddr3 1333mhz ram, i tried changing the timings like one website said to 7-7-7-20 but that didnt work (had to reset bios)
what mhz is safe to overclock valueram? and timings?
There is no need to overclock DDR3. All current Intel and AMD processors have an integrated memory controller ( IMC ) that just does not need high speed RAM. DDR3 1600 is the sweet spot for both brands. When I say the sweet spot I mean based on price as much as anything. The gain from DDR3 1333 to DDR3 1600 is a few percent at most. Nothing you will ever notice outside of a benchmarking program.
The only exception is with the new APUs. The integrated graphics on an APU likes the highest speed RAM you can give it.
