I'm a bit of a novice but I believe I can answer this one.

RAM will try to run at whatever speed your mobo teels it to run at. Certain ram is already spec'd and marketed to run at certain speeds (ie. 1600MHz, 1866MHz, etc) by the manufacturer.. but, any stick of RAM can be overclocked or underclocked. The question is... is it good enough to actually work lol.

I've heard from people who've OC'ed their 1600MHz vengeance RAM to 2133MHz. No clue how they did it..... I can only get my Kingston HyperX Red 1600MHz to run at about 1933MHz.

Wow, interesting! Well I think for my build as of right now I'm going to focus on getting a new MOBO to hopefully get some stability. As of right now this on isnt working.

I will give you a REP for your answer since you don't have one.

I would personally just buy faster ram these days because it is so cheap.

but here is a link to see what you will gain.

I have no desire to OC or upgrade my ram after reading this
mainly because I don't encode.

Thanks for the rep points! haha... never thought i'd get any LMAO. I'm definitely way low on the totem pole in this field. But if anybody's got music engineering questions I'm your guy! haha.

NP. Definitely see what info you can get on the mobo's you're looking at. People say that the mobo shouldn't make much of a difference when OC'ing... but I read a lot of testimonials from people who switch mobo's and can overclock things higher and with more stability. I'm not sure if it's the default values of the mobo that's the difference.... or if it's the mobo itself... but there certainly is a difference, somewhere.

G'luck!

Very interesting. I have never ever OC a single computer in the many years I have been playing until now. What I find is some games require lots of system resources and I typically multi task so OCing is a method I'm trying to use in order to keep using my current equipment without spending a lot to replace it.
