Hello, I would like to overclock my RAM, which is Corsair 16GB (2x8GB) 3600MHz CL18 Vengeance RGB PRO SL. I also got MSI MPG Z490 Gaming Plus motherboard, and i7 10700KF CPU, I would be glad id you guys would write your overclock settings or advice me what to do.

First off, even if someone were to post their OC settings it's nothing that would benefit you. Every kit and every system overclock differently and will require different settings.

 

As for overclocking, your kit already runs at 3600mhz, which is pretty damn good. I would advise you to tighten your timings and see if you can get that CAS latency down to 15 or 16. I would start by lowering your CL to 17, run memtest86 for a bit, and continue to lower from there. After that, work on tRCD, tRP, and tRAS (your primary timings). If you encounter errors bring up your DRAM voltage a little bit.

QUOTE ME IF YOU WANT A REPLY!

So Cl17 works alright, no problems with memtest, but CL16 doesn't even boot.

And I can't raise my DDR voltage, even though it's set to 1.390v, it still shows me that it is 1.200v

When you attempt to commit your changes (F10), does it inform you that voltage and timings are to be changed? It's also important to understand that if a memory OC fails and recovers, you'll see the stock voltage values once again despite having your manual values already input, same with frequency.

 

Get a FAT32 flash drive and press F12 to take a screenshot of your voltage settings and show us what you are looking at. We'll have a better understanding of how to help you with a visual aid.

Just checked, it shows 1.2v only in bios, when in system voltage is 1.4 just as it was set. But the problem with booting CL16 is still same.
