Upgrade to 8gb memory more.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
hey!

I'm sitting right now with 2x4GB memory (http://www.ebuyer.com/274035-corsair...l8gx3m2a1600c9)
I'm thinking of upgrading to 2x4GB more, how much does this affect my overclocking of the CPU (running at 4.7ghz) Will I have to increase voltages to run a total of 16gb?

I find OCing with maxed number of modules to be a hinderence. Maxing out the dimms has always been a limitting factor to OCing, not just the ram, but the CPU as well. Having said that, I have no experience with SB (have messed with everything but...).

Yeah, if anything it's going to require higher vcore/dramv/vccio, which pretty much means slightly higher temps. If you don't need it, I wouldnt bother quite yet. 8gb is more than enough for most of us here. Only reason I have 16gb is cuz I was building a new rig and decided to go all out. I figured another 50 bucks or so was a drop in the bucket compared to the rest of the expenses.

Edit: If you're itching to spend some money, save up and get another vid card to SLI. Probably the best gain for your buck looking at your sig rig imo.

My reason is that I have a "giftcard" in a computer store, and those memories are very cheap

I don't OC ram, but going to 16gb had absolutely no effect on my 4.5ghz oc on my 2500k.

Going to 8GB (4x2GB) and 16GB (4x4GB) had no effect at ALL on my i5 2500k. I did have to raise VCCIO and VDIMM slightly to compensate for the extra IMC load. But I needed to do that at stock anyway. It really had no effect at all on CPU overclocks.

I have to agree with noticeable performance being nill. I went from 6Gb to 12Gb (and gave my Trdient 2000 kit to a freind... how I miss that kit) and saw no change. Even when I went from 4Gb to 8Gb with my 775 system, I saw no performance change.
