What is the difference between these memory models ?

I have the 1600MHz model (4X8GBs - 32GB total), but they seem to be identical (exact same memory chips, just different configurations), would that be possible to put manually the XMP profile of the 2133 model in my BIOS and it will work good ?

I just have to increase the volts (from 1.5 to 1.6), speed (from 1600 to 2133) and timings.

What are the chances of destroying the memory ?

shouldn't destroy the memory. I don't see why you couldn't manually overclock the memory. Adjusting timings will be the most important, it may help if you can find a list of subtimings for the 2133 model, to help you input them in your bios.

It says 11-12-12 with 1.6V in HyperX site for the 2133MHz model.

 

I did 11-11-11-30 2133MHz with 1.6V - Crashed the moment desktop showed up.

 

Then I did 1.65V and seems to be "stable" (should test it), is it dangerous to run it at 1.65V (This particular memory model), I am a bit worried that it will shorten their life ...

 

Should I try to go any higher ? Like 12-12-12-33 2400MHz ? Or tighten timings on 2133MHz ?

Those aren't the sub-timings though. There are several more timings beyond the main 4 ones. before testing at 1.65, I would again check the manufacturer to see if you can find out what the subtimings are with the 2133 xmp. You'll most likely have to loosen those timings more than what they were at 1600.

 

If you can't find it, there's several calculators you can find online to help you with timings, but i think most of those will be for ddr4. Here's a video that can help explain what i mean
