Overclocking RAM on FM2+ help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello, i just bought this FM2+ motherboard and as the title says, want to overclock the RAM from 1600 to 1866, and if possible the CPU too. This is my rig:



CPU

According to this database, i asume that my motherboard has the same number of phases that the old revision (FM2) had, and therefore i can apply the same recomendations stated here for overclocking. Please correct me if im wrong

RAM

http://www.overclock.net/t/943109/about-vrms-mosfets-motherboard-safety-with-125w-tdp-processors

"Memory (RAM) power is always taken from a separate VRM system linked to the 24-pin connector, not the CPU VRM system".

If i understand correctly, for overclocking the RAM the number of phases is irrelevant since all the power comes from the PSU? Would it be safe to increase the voltage on this motherboard to reach 1866?

Thx for your help

Number of phases doesn't have any effect on the method you use to overclock. It just affects (slightly) how high you can overclock successfully.

It affects both the RAM and CPU overclocking or just the CPU?

Don't know about your motherboard, but mine has settings for phase control for both memory and CPU.

sorry for the delay, i just checked and no, i dont have those "phase control" options, only CPU voltage, CPU multiplier, DRAM voltage,DRAM multiplier. For some weird reason, the CPU vcore cant be decreased rolleyes.gif., only goes up. The DRAM voltage can be tweaked so no problem there.

If anyone is interested i managed to overclock it to 1866 following the instructions of this thread http://www.overclock.net/t/1210184/overclocking-kingston-hyper-x-1600-mhz-to-1866#post_21869381. Its running at 1.5v (stock)
