Do RAM speed affect max CPU overclocking?

What is the best RAM speed when you start to OC Your CPU is there some general advice here or is it different from CPU to CPU



I'm new when it comes to OC but i will try to overclock one FX8350.

It shouldn't make any difference for multiplier overclocking. If you want to overclock using FSB without droping the FSB/DRAM ratio then you need some fairly high clocking ram. However there isn't much advantage using FSB over just multi for piledriver.

If you overclock through the multiplier, which I would strongly recommend doing as the 8350's is unlocked, then your ram speed won't cause any instabilities.
