would ram help my overclocking?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi all!

After reading a lot on the net about this two rams PC3-12800 DDR3 1600 Mhz /7-8-7-24 /1.6 V / Ripjaws-blue / F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM, G.Skill 2 x 2GB PC3-12800 DDR3 1600 Mhz /9-9-9-24 / 1.5V /Ripjaws-red / F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL
I'm now asking if this rams would help me reach my goal O.C. of 3.8ghz, currently I'm stable at 3.59ghz with only my kingston value ram 1333mhz... Which of the two rams would help me gain an extra 200mhz? I'm thinking of getting the red ripjaws because its much cheaper than the blue but it's only c9 compared to the blue c7... I'm asking for advice on which ram should i buy

If you want to OC the cpu, increase the multiplier instead of the FSB and ram won't matter. If you can't raise the multiplier higher increase the fsb and reduce the ram multiplier/or set timings higher for the increased frequency.

actually I can run the cpu on 264x14(3.69ghz) with small FFT in prime 95 for 5mins just to check if the cpu was stable, but when i run blend test for it crashes and BSOD on me after 20secs or less.. so I suspect that my ram is holding me back... I already tried lowering the ratio making the ram run close to its rated speed of 1333 but still no luck it keeps on BSOD on me

I'd still doubt it's your ram, have you tried lowering the ram freq. massively just to check?

Either one really. 1600Mhz RAM usually offers better quality and overclocking results than any 1333Mhz kit. The binning is as follows: the 9-9-9 kit can often do 7-8-7 max and up to 2000 9-11-9, and the 7-8-7 kit 1600 6-8-6 max or up to 2400 9-11-9.

@ph10m I didn't tried lowering it to the last ratio, I'll try it tomorrow.. it's 12 AM now here and I have work tomorrow I need to sleep..

@xd hmmm I think would buy the red ripjaws cause it's much cheaper here, but on the other hand is the blue ripjaws a good investment for future builds? I will be trying make a new build months after Bulldozer is released just to see if it performs well...

Go with whatever fits your budget; one thing's for sure though, both are great overclockers/great investments.
