Hit a wall on overclocking RAM!!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello all, this is my first time making a post here.
I decided to ask the community for help since I'm not sure if I achieved the best results with my OC or not.
I'm using 4x Corsair Vengeance RGB PROs (3600mhz) on a Tuf Gaming X570 board and a R9 3900X. I used the supplied XMP profile and I had to do a bit of tweaking to get the OC stable.
I tweaked the command rate from 1T to 2T and turned Gear down off.
I feel like I could get better performance on 1T, but I'm not exactly sure if it's worth it to proceed.
My RAM isn't even on the compatible list for my motherboard, so I don't want to push it.
So my question is, "Does 1T give better performance over 2T at the cost of stability? Is it worth the hassle?"

This would be a great thing to measure with latency tables and throughput benchmarks. Try giving it a shot and report back the results?

Sure thing! Is there a benchmark that you recommend?

I've used Passmark PerformanceTest in the past. I'm not sure if the free one allows for the advanced memory testing, but it at least will give you a number for comprehensive memory performance.

I'll try that one. I don't think I've been able to find a free program for that purpose and Passmark has most of the keys anyway 😂

Lovely... Does it change much on the other setting?

I toyed around with it and it's too unstable to test. I blue screen after and sometimes before Windows boots. My system should be able to handle it, maybe it's just outside of my knowledge. 🤷‍♂️
