Should I overclock my Ram? What would the effects be?

I tried in different ways, but it didn't work, tho I think I successfully set it to run on CL 12

"Goodram" isn't exactly a big name brand, so I wouldn't expect it to be able to run above its rated speed of 2133. Good job getting the timing down though, that impacts latency quite a bit.

So I was wondering if overclocking my ram makes any sense. I have 8 GB of 2133 MHz DDR4 Goodram memory(2 DIMMs, each 4 GB), maybe CL 13 or so. How would it effect performance of my PC if I overclock it somehow? Would overclocking it make sense?

On intel, wouldn't matter too much. 

 

On AMD, faster frequencies do help. 

I have an intel i5-6402P :(

Overclocking ram always helps, just how much varies. Of course, don't bother overclocking if you are satisfied with your performance, unless you'd like to know how to do it for the sake of it.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

I have literally never heard of this CPU. Nevertheless, overclocking ram probably isn't what's holding you back if you aren't seeing top tier performance.

I would like to learn how to do it. Could you help? At christmas I will upgrade, and I will overclock for sure then

Oh then yeah, it's not a bad skill to have. 

I'll leave the rest to jay.

Be warned that overclocking ram is more risky than overclocking the CPU. If the CPU crashes, it is unlikely to cause much data corruption. If ram is unstable, you can corrupt your stored data. Keep that in mind if you decide to go ahead.
