Can I overclock more with better memory?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I currently have the Corsair XMS3 1333Mhz. I can overclock to 3.7Ghz with 1.40v vcore fully stable. So when I overclock to 4.0-4.1 Ghz I HAVE to run 1.55v on cpu voltage. So If I get the G.Skill ripjaws 1600Mhz. Would I be able to OC more with less cpu voltage?

Depends what kind of OC you are doing. Bus clock or multiplier?

I'm not sure with that cpu, but i can say with certainty that better ram will allow for more oc headroom with an i7.

If you want to increase your fsb, then higher clocked memory will definately make a noticible difference.

I don't understand why memory is an issue.. just drop it's multi down when it becomes unstable...

Some RAM just cant take high FSB, no matter how the low frequency is. For example mine will not boot over 275 FSB, even at 1100mhz, unless I up the voltage to 1.58v.

As to OP, no.
