Tightening timings, increase Memory speeds

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So i have this kit of CORSAIR vengeance RAM

 

https://www.corsair.com/uk/en/Categories/Products/Memory/VENGEANCE-LPX/p/CMK16GX4M2A2666C16

 

Wondering if i can succesfully push it past 2666Mhz. I know that you obviously can,but i have heard some CORSAIR kits don't place nice when trying to overclock them past there rated speeds. IF not the speeds, what about the timings? What number can i expect, or should i just use DRAM calculator? Thanks Y'all

C'mon, man.  If you know about the DRAM Calculator then start playing.  To a certain degree it will answer your question just by telling it what your specs are.  And then you can start trying things out.  That's where the fun really begins.  

 

Definitely create a Windows restore point if you're gonna seriously push your kit.  You won't break any hardware, but you can certainly corrupt data.  These commands will be helpful in repairing some corruption.

You won't get much from those sticks. I has a 3000mhz set that won't do 3200mhz stable. Not worth the effort. Want faster speeds, get faster memory.

Thanks dude, i actually used the safe settings, and that was 14-14-14-14-32, and all other values like tRAS tRDRD, and such, everything. But it was not stable, haven't tested speed yet

You could try 14-15-14-14-32
