if you only want to overclock your cpu and not your ram,then new ram isnt required.
if you wish to oc your ram too,then a better ram kit is recommended.
and when u say 12gb,how is the kit divided? 4gb x 3 or 6gb x2
cause having more than 2 ram sticks limits your ability to overclock.
I'm not saying you're wrong, I'm just curious.
I was under the impression with triple channel memory if they're a matched triple then they should OC the same as if they were a matched double on dual channel. What makes you say otherwise?
And btw KEITHRH12 I just looked again at your sig rig, I missed where you stated you were already watercooling It may be that you're already pushing the chip to it's limit. If you can't increase the voltage or the gains have already dropped off with any increase then chances are you're already there.
