I have a set of Corsair Vengeance 16GB (CML16GX3M4A1600C9) on its way home. I will be pairing this with an Intel i5-2500k and an Asrock Extreme4 Gen3 board. If I want to overclock my RAM, which will yield best results on the Intel platform? Higher clock speeds or tigther timings?
What are the best stable clocks / timings you guys have got? Plese indicate platform and voltage in your responses.
Higher clock speeds would increase performance the most (1-2FPS) on an intel system. For the AMD's tighter timings are best (for 1-2FPS). Having a good HSF and OCing your CPU will net the highest gains (aside from a good GFX card) depending on the resolution you play at.
