I'm now on my third system and have always OC'd my CPU's and GPU's but for some reason have had reservations pushing my memory past it's XMP settings. Now with a little time on my hands, I am wondering if tightening the timings/ increasing the speed to 3733/3800+ will give me some benefits in benches and games like COD Warzone.
8700k 5.0ghz @ 1.29v - no AVX offset (probably a top 40% chip, haven't really pushed it past 5.1 as I saw no need at the time)
Gigabyte z390M gaming MB
32GB G SKill Ripjaws V C16
After doing a bit of research, I think these are Hynix D-Die (davinci) which are pretty close to samsung b die's.. Some people seem to have been able to get them to run at 3800 at stock timings, but I am not sure what else I would need to change. A lot of the info I'm getting is from people running ryzen so I don't know what necessarily transfers over.
Any quick and dirty recs or places to start with this type of memory, as well as basic stress tests or benches to run? Maxmem, memtest, aida etc
Not really sure where to start, speed vs timings - looks like this is a 1.35v kit so I assume anything under 1.4v is safe
Thanks in advance
