I can't stand stock components normally...unless it's some sort of glorious chip or stick I'd rather keep safe for benching, I oc all I can, and specially ram...it's fun to tweak it
You won't see a big difference, even a stock ivy won't show a big difference when gaming and with real life usage but still we delid chips and oc them to 5ghz for 24/7 use, so what's the deal with ram these days?
