1333 mhz to 1600 mhz through bios?...

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello everybody
I have corsair 4gb 1333 mhz dd3 ram and gigabyte motherboard.
When i enter the bios there is an option to change the multiplier of the ram and make it 1600 mhz...
If i change the multiplier ,does my ram or my mobo burn?

Uhmm, its not going to cook anything but I am sure your computer wont boot up and you will have to reset the CMOS

You would have to probably over volt the RAM but even then it may not be stable enough to do 1600

Is there a big difference between 1333 and 1600?

Not necessarily, but 1600Mhz will be likely unstable due to generic memory binning.

my ram is stock 1333 but set at 1606 with timings of 9-11-11-24
runs great

my rams are cheap ones (corsair 2x2) i havent the money to buy quality rams so does a change of timings cook these rams?
another question-) What is the performance gain of overclocking to 1600 from 1333?

Try raising the voltage.
Wow 9-11-11, so impractical... (there goes the performance boost )

Running 1600Mhz can have more to do with overclockability than performance gain. Depending on other system specs (i.e. SSD present) and tasks you do with your PC (i.e. video editing?) you may or may not notice a performance boost.

Because generic 1333Mhz CL9 RAM is the lowest of the low (particularly in IC binning), you should normally never expect these kits to hit 1600Mhz or further, which can hold back system OCs on locked multi processors.

A change of timing won't cook your RAM. Make it unstable maybe, damage no. Only excess voltage can damage your RAM.

Thank you.I won't touch my rams then
