overclocking Kingston HyperX

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm a newbie with overclocking. I recently bought a water cooling kit and i'm quickly becomming addicted to overclocking.

I just overclocked my core i7 2600k to 4.5ghz and now i want to overclock my memory

MSI Z68A-GD65
Kingston HyperX KHX1600C9D3K2/8GX

My memory is advertised as 1600mhz and currently running @ 1600

I was wondering if it is possible to go over 1600 and what would be a safe frequency to try ?

Thanks a lot

Just tryed setting it to 1866 and my computer would instantly turn off then turn on again and so on... Hopefully my BIOS detected that the overclocking failed and put it back to 1600 frown.gif

So that means i can't go over 1600 ? frown.gif

you might need a voltage bump, try 1.6v, if they are on 1.5
