I've never had good luck with cruicial sport line as far as overclocking goes. basic advice would be to try bumping up the voltage to the ram to 1.65 and slowly bump up your baseclock.



Could always try for the next higher multiplier on the NB , capability varies wildly from board to board even the same board with different bios versions.



I'd absolutley back up your rig before messing with memory or nb overclocking - seems like if I have trouble , this is when it happens.

If you are trying to improve gaming fps - I've seen draw calls increase by up to 15% going from CL6 1600 to cl10 2400 ( ddr3 should test it on ddr4 sometime I suppose).

You can test this for yourself using 3dmark's api overhead feature test.

I've to ask only 2 things:
1)About oc of the CPU NB, is correlated with FSB?
2) About ram frequency: can i've some performance improvement even with 1600 mhz cl8 2T?

Thank you very much
1. yes it is correlated to the FSB in a similar way as the ram speed is.
2. I'm sure it would help some, but as to exactly how much I can't say really, so I'll leave this to cssorkinman as his answer pretty much is exactly what mine would be.

Intel who?

Ok thank you very much for the advise. So i cannot bump up the CPU NB with his multiplier alon, without changing the "FSB right?
About rams....had some room to goo ahead, but never had stability ahead 1600 on a MSI 970 gaming...maybe with a sabertooth r2, things can be better.

Can the cpu nb overclock give me some improvemnt even wuth 1600 rams?

depends on the board.. .my old board would let me change the cpu/nb without changing the fsb, but if you change the fsb, the cpu/nb will change with it.


and yes the cpu/nb overclock should help even with 1600mhz ram... probably not as much as if you had faster ram though.

Fair. About voltage of CPU NB, for 2600mhz, how much it need?

Any suggestion about stability testing?

Thank you very much guys

I set my sabertooth on 1.3v cpu/nb but it didnt heat up my thermals significantly. It will depend on your board, but it might be a decent place to start. Just be sure to keep an eye on temps in hwinfo64 and if anything gets too hot you can out a fan on it

of course i will do, just installed even an old cpu amd fan nearby the vrm and northbridge for more air nearby that zone.
Unfortunatly, if i don't remember wrong, my fx 8320e is not so good with vcore "bingo". had to push a lot like 1.36 for 4.0ghz _S
