post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello,
please could i have some advice?
i got some nice crucial tactical 1866mhz ddr3 ram ,i also have a very nice 3000rpm balistix ram cooler.
am i ok to clock the hell out of them?
and how will i tell if theygoing to fail? ect, ect,


i havent dabbled in ram ocing as my last lot of ram showed errors,that was cpu or mobo related.

but so far i have got to 2000mhz with them with 9.11.9.27.40,is this safe?

With AMD processors it's pretty hard to do damage by overclocking the memory. Intel you have to be careful with the IMC running higher voltages. I've used up to 1.8v with no issues, and DDR3 still doesn't get hot. 1.7v is generally considered safe. Basically RAM will become unstable before you can damage it.

should be able to get 2000MHz+ with 1.65v and 9-11-9-27 timings,or run at 1866MHz and lower timings to around 8-9-8-24 with 1.6-1.65v.
