3770k (first time) OC advice. - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, sorry for the late reply work has held me up.

Temps were getting to hot while I was trying to OC so I have installed a Corsair h100i water system. I am going to start from scratch and reset bios to default. I am not sure what to do about my memory, I read on some posts in that guide that moving the ram from 1600 could cause instability when going for a big overclock. Should I leave it at the default 1600 until I get close to stable or can i move it up to 2133 and put the correct timings in?

I think the opposite. If he's using RAM rated for 2133 then I'd set it for that first. Otherwise all your doing is getting a stable overclock for memory at 1600.
If you get a 4.7Ghz OC with 1600mhz then set the RAM to the rated 2133mhz it most likely would be unstable.

In my case, I'm limited to 4.5Ghz on my 3770k because of my 2400Mhz memory, but I could go higher with slower memory. I'd take the memory speed over the possible ~200mhz CPU speed difference.

I say that because RAM instability is harder to diagnose because it looks like CPU instability. Reduce variables, get the CPU stable, then overclock the RAM. But that's the way I was shown, there is more than one way to skin a cat.

I was always told to do the ram first cause of the instability thing. If it was unstable it was the RAM since the CPU is stock. I think it makes more sense.

Sorry for the confusion guys my ram is 2133 but default eufi sets it to 1600 for some reason, I just didnt know if it would help me to set it to the correct setting before trying to oc. Didnt matter though im still fighting temps, guess ill try delidding next.

Just Make sure the Volts and Timing on Ram are correct
You can then run it at lower speeds with no problems if needed .smile.gif
