Probably worrying too much but it's my first time doing this so better to be over cautious than under cautious:) your help is much appreciated!
Ok looked it up - couldn't find much info.
But it runs at 1600 @ 10-10-10
OR 1333 @ 9-9-9
Stick to 10, leave the command rate to AUTO - it usually is 2N but 1N is actually better/faster - so if it is defaulting to 1N - then leave it at that.
As for the caution - you aren't risking anything to be honest - just remember the "max voltage" for ram is 1.65v, for your CPU is 1.55v, for your temps it's 95c (being on the safe side).
Anything below those and you run fine, you'll be more than "safe".
Follow the guide for your OC - and it would be helpful if you specified your specs via the rigbuilder (check the top of this page, to the right) where you add your PC to your signature. This is helpful for people seeing what PC you got in order to give you the right advice (ie my temp and voltage is based on IVY BRIDGE CPU's - but I'm assuming you got one as you're on this thread)
And if anyone helps you, do remember to hit that rep button to people!
