First time overclock

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi guys

I wonder if you could give me some advice. I want to overclock my new i7 3.06. I am going to buy a new CPU cooler and probably a better psu, but my question is about ram.

Is it possible to overclock my cpu to a decent amount using the ram i have a 1333mhz or do i need to buy some faster stuff i.e 1600mhz?

Sorry if its a noob question but ive never done this before

No need, You could easily overclock the RAM at CL9 timings with a little extra voltage

Thanks for the reply. So the ram will stand a little bit of overclocking too?
