Overclocking my ram?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi, im new to ram overclocking, and i wanted to know how to do it and is it worth it?
Ive heard that ram is very easy to misconfigure and can be easily broken...
Currently its down clocked by 4 mhz. Default is 1066mhz. Because of my CPU overclock.

And if you can please explain little about timings, not what each dose, but something else, like Lower is better.. Limits/stability etc.
And i wondered in SPD tab there are 4 different settups/configuration, if thats what it is?
I understand them like this...They all are the same, is it true?
Looser timings, but higher freq.
Tighter timings, but lower freq.
And basically it shows 4 different settings my ram can use @ its stock speed (not talking about freq, but overall performance) - Is that true?

Daily use you will not see a difference. If you are doing synthetic ram benchmarks for hwbot. Then it will help out some for that. But for the general stuff I wouldn't even worry about it.

Here is a good read for you. Thanks

Does ram speed even matter that much?
Like 1033 vs 1600mhz -Daily use, gaming etc.
And that thread explains ONLY what each of them dose/ means.
I kinda need help with that SPD tab etc.
