Do not ever increase memory voltage.
When overclocking the timings, start from 999 26 to 998 26, then 988, then 888 ect.

I'd overclock the CPU before the RAM, just to discard any type of RAM errors that might appear due to OCing. But be advised some mobos will OC your RAM at the same time as your CPU
Also, how do you plan to OC the ram? speed, timings or both?

Why not? an increase of 0.07v on my RAM makes me able to go stable from 1333 MHz to 1600 MHz, on 9/9/9/24 timings

Hi thanks for your reply.

From my understanding of the website above, it is more effective to oc the hz rather than timing. Actually I have no preference yet on which to oc. Both is also fine.

However I would like to oc the ram to 80% of the maximum stable setting.

What about temp? Is the original heatsink sufficient? I've saw a few website on watercooling for ram... Is that extreme? or needed?

Thanks for your reply
So is better to leave the hz and volt alone?
