can I overclock my CPU while in XMP?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have Patriot Viper 3 IEM 1866MHz memory, but to run it at the rated speed, it needs to be run im XMP or it will run at 1600MHz. I want to overclock my CPU as well, can I do that while in XMP, or do I need to use manual mode and overclock the CPU and RAM myself?

I have the 1866 ram but I change it to 1600 and then overclock, haven't had any issues doing it.

Just set the timing and voltages to the xmp profile and ram speed to 1600 or which ever speed you need and oc away.
