  3. Good one!
  4. thanks
  5. does anyone else have any opinions

    and i wasnt; clear before but i was wondering how much i could OC the memory, it is only 1066 now but how high can it go?
  6. If you want to overclock the memory then I suggest getting faster ram at least 1600.
    Having a CPU with unlocked multiplier then there is no need to overclock the memory since the CPU overclocks just by changing the multiplier without affecting other components.
  7. so can't i still OC the RAM to something like 1333 or 1500? and how would that affect the latency?
  8. You will have to relax the timings so you gain clock speed but loose latency.
  9. so would there be any visible gain? and is the loss of latency worth the speed gain?
  10. Best answer
    There is very little gain from overclocking memory it will be measurable but hardly visibly.
  11. alright thanks rolli.
