How much would I benefit from overclocking RAM

  • CPU: Intel I5 3570k @4.2GHz
  • GPU: sapphire HD 3GB OC 
  • MB: AsRock Extreme4 Z77
  • RAM: corsair vengeance 4*2  DDR3, 1866MHz, CL9, 1.5V
  • SSD: ADATA XPG SX900 128gb
  • CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 612s

so these are my specs, how much would I benefit from overclocking my RAM?

would it even be worth it, considering the time that goes into it?

I primarily play games BF3, planetside, skyrim (the more intense ones), and do some basic things on UDK (unreal dev kit).


Also, what would be the best way to overclock it? a guide would be nice...


no, you wont see a gain in performance from ram overclocking

If you plan on using a RamDisk, then you will. However, currently, 1866 is more than fast enough.

Sorry to highjack...but what about if his ram was 1600mhz? Is it worth it to OC up to 1866mhz? I have a similar setup and am wondering the same thing

not really, you wont see any big difference, and it will come with alot of headaches

What System You Run's

What Windows


you wont really see any difference

ram speed wont make any noticeable difference
