Is it worth it to overclock 4x4gb DDR4 @ 2400mhz CL15

Would I get any noticeable performance improvement if I lowered the latency and increased to maybe 2666mhz? Or is it not worth the chance of instability? Use my PC for schoolwork and gaming but looking to get into adobe premiere.

no point, don't risk

 

don't you have XMP? X99 after all...

This kit actually doesn't have its own xmp settings :( .

No.

 

 

No loss if you have the time to mess around with tests and in the BIOS.

Can always reset BIOS to get rid of bad settings.

I guess I'll just leave it at stock

I would keep it stock mate, between 2400 and 3000 there is barely any difference (apart from the price), 2666 you'd be wasting your time.

i'll admit, my face went into the desk just then

2400 is a good enough speed, more than fast enough for anything you need, especially considering that's 2400 in quad channel (here i am having to run single channel because of a broken motherboard...)

Whoops. I was wrong. The kit actually does have xmp profiles. Must have missed it when I was going through the Bios. But the asrock bios is probably the worst on the enthusiast market anyways.  :lol:
