Safe to overclock memory from 2000MHz to 2133MHz?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Good day

I have the Patriot Viper Xtreme Series DDR3 8GB 2000MHz Enhanced Latency Kit (PX538G2000​ELK) memory installed on my Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z motherboard.

When I load overclocking profiles I can only choose the following clock speeds for this RAM:
1600, 1866, 2133 all at the default 1.65v.

Currently I set it to 1866MHz which is not the 2000MHz potential.

Can I choose 2133MHz which will overclock it a bit with the same voltage?
Whould I need to change the RAM timings?
I have sufficient cooling in my case so I'm not worried about the RAM overheating.

Please let me know as I cannot find any answer on the Internet.

Just try it and check if stable.

You cannot really damage RAM by clocking it too high. You can damage it but applying too much voltage though.
Once again...

Thanks. I want to leave the volts at 1.65. Should I change the timings? It's currently at 9-11-9-27 (default)

You can try at the specs its at now, you may need to raise vccio a bit. If it doesn't work, try 9-12-9
