LOL, yeah, tell me about it!
I don't have much patience to keep changing settings, restarting and stress testing but it's so worth it. I got quite a bit more performance with this guide versus default setting. If XMP works for you that might do it but for me the default XMP profile didn't work, even with higher volts.
Try to follow it, despite it being uber LONG you can skip all the first pages and go straight to the "steps" it suggests. It shouldn't take such a long time.
Basically you go for the highest Mhz possible on the first step (like I have a 4000mhz chip but it's only stable at 3800mhz), then you go to tertiary timings (until you get unstable, lowering a bit then testing) then secondaries (or something like that...).
The way I did it as to not get annoyed with all the testing /restarting is: whenever I'm playing single player games (like bannerlord currently) I'd do "one step" of the guide and at the next restart I'd go lower and lower until crash / instability. Then I'd move to the next step. Since bannerlord uses 100% cpu/GPU frequency I think it's enough of a test.
Since I AFK due to kids/wife I also let mem test run whenever I change settings. I'm still not done with my RAM but each day it gets a little better and I don't burn myself only doing OC all day lol
