DRAM Reference Voltages

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I don't know if this has been asked before. If there is a thread already please guide me there, since i couldn't find what i was looking for using the search function.

I was just wondering, what does those voltage tweaks do to help with overclocking. In my Rampage II they are laid out in data and ctrl ( which i think means control ) for each of the three channels of the mobo.

Right now i'm pushing +50mV on all 3 of the channels, both on Data and Ctrl, and all i want to know, since google wasn't of much help either, is what excactly Data and ctrl mean, and how much it helps with ram oc'ing.

Thanks in advance, and happy holidays
