Memory XMP profiles and OCing my 3770K

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

Quick question: Are there any downsides to leaving memory XMP profiles on and working settings around them when overclocking?

The idea to let the memory at default (instead of using a XMP preset profile) is to know how far you can OC your cpu in the optimal overall condition. To know the farther you can overclock your CPU.

But, my thought on it is that you should let your memory profile to what you want it to be in the end. I would say let it that way, and find some OC settings that will work with it.. Why trying to find an optimal OC settings, but with stock memory speed, when at the end of the line, you want your XMP profile...

Maybe for some benching, to see your maximum CPU speed, you will need to disable that XMP, but instead of that.... I would let it activated !

My 2 cents, and i am new at OC redface.gif

(myself i use a 4.7 Ghz @ 1.35v with 16gb of memory (xmp profile set it to 1600mhz). thumb.gif )
