Is it dangerous to do this to my RAM? - Page 2

I'm going to manually set it as 10-10-10-28
1.65V
2133MHz.
BRB!

You need to loosen up the latency together with applying more voltage.

dont loosen the latency that much... fast ram means absolutely nothing if your latency is too high... as a general rule, on DDR3, for every CAS level you raise (after youve done it 1 or 2 times) you wont be able to get your speeds high enough to see an improvement... i would leave timing where they are for stock and mess with your speeds... then adjust one timing value at a time... a lot of the time you can get awkward timing and extremely high clocks that work amazingly well smile.gif

I tried.. Latencies unchanged and changed.. No effect. Manually doing all this won't allow for overclocking. I'll just leave it at 1866MHz at stock timings.

G.Skill makes a 2133 kit with 11-11-11-30-2T timings that operate at 1.6v, so you could give that a try. With that said, I have the 1866 MHz variant and I can't get mine stable at those clocks with 1.6v. Fails after about 6 hours in prime95 blend. I'd be fine with that but BF3 causes a system lock after about 30 minutes with those RAM timings/speed.

I may try 1.65v but It's probably not worth it at that point, considering they do 1866 with better timings and only 1.5v. Then again, this is OCN....
