Worth it to OC my RAM?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I just finished my first build and it's running smoothly right now. Since I have everything pretty much settled, I am wondering if I should go on to OC my RAM. I currently have OCZ Reaper HPC Edition 2GB in my comp. According to CPU-Z my RAM spec is 400 MHz (1:2) @ 5-5-5-15. Would I see any performance upgrade if I OC it? Any advice/input would be appreciated.

Solely overclocking the ram will give little to no performance increase in non-synthetical apps.

yeah man it worth it and i guess those ones timing are 4-4-4-12 set those manually on your bios, Mem volt at like 2.0-2.1, increment the FSB a bit , i don't know your mobo, but keep it linked, and make it 1:1 good look
