Overcocking my G.Skills?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
these

is it worth it? what timings/voltage should I try? is it worth upping the voltage on them and trying for increased speed? don't want to burn them out or something, they have stock cooling.

Nothing to extreme with stock. But IV heard its better to tighten ur timings instead of increasing frequency. Gives u a more noticeable performance gain. Idk much about ram overclocking but that's wat IV heard.

I don't think you'll get very far with that kit. Leave it where it is, you won't really notice the performance gain.

I got them to 9/8/7 19 timings, changing them any lower results in corruption or POST failure, am I doing any more harm than good with the timings like that? don't really know how the timings work, but they're a bit lower than stock anyway

You probably aren't going to notice the difference unless you run some benches to measure latency and bandwidth. You can try raising it to the 1866 strap, but I still don't think you'd notice it or worth the effort. For my daily rig, I could care less if the ram is running at 2k or at 1600. I just punch in something that is easy and that I don't have to worry about.

I tried upping it to 1866 but even with the voltage raised from 1.5 to 1.6 it still wouldn't post.

In that case, it's probably not worth trying to overclock them much. Some ram just doesn't clock well. I guess timings at 1600 is all that you can do. Might do 8-9-8, but probably not worth messing with.

I see. so is it fine to leave the timings at 9/8/7/19 even though the difference would be miniscule?

You can leave them there, you won't notice the difference unless you run some benches.
