I have G.Skill 2133 that runs 1850 ish at 7-9-8 and 2550 at 10-12-11 the performance is pretty much identical at both speeds. Use AMD OD and you can tune it in windows saves a lot of re-booting. Wouldn't hurt if you use another drive besides your dail OS since ram tuning can bork your OS and your bios if you get too aggressive.
Good point. Had overclocking mess up my OS before already. Will make a small partition on the data drive. SSD is already a bit full.
I don't know if I should overvolt. The airflow isn't bad but it aint great either. As the radiator is outside of the case.
Can try to squeze the g.skill cooler on the ram. Will be pretty hard with the tubing in the way though.
Did some runs of AIDA. Have a look if you want:
It kinda sucks that there is fluctuation.
These second run @ 2400 was done immediately after the other one.
Looks like 2000-2200 is indeed best. Probably because of the 1T versus 2T.
