How to overclock Patriot Viper RAM?

November 29, 2012 at 17:14:15
Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate x64, i7 3770K / Patriot Viper 1866 16GB
I have patriot viper ram, 16GB (2x8GB), 1866MHz and want to overclock.

Windows experience index says 7.8 on RAM and I want it to say all 7.9 (which is the best possible). Honestly I could care less about the speed increase. Call me crazy but I just want to see Windows telling me, "YOU HAVE THE MOST AWESOME COMPUTER". lol ;)

I could also add two more sticks of RAM, but I don't think that would increase the experience index, because it's based off speed of calculations.

I think you're being way too anal, but there's not much we can do without knowing the make/model of your motherboard. And what speed is the RAM currently running at - 1866MHz or 1600MHz?

There are many different Patriot Viper 1866 modules and you can make up 16GB using different capacity modules.

I agree with riider about your motives.

If you really need to know if you have a bad ass machine you need to use a benchmarking program to find out how yours compares to others.

Yes, I haven't done anything yet in overclocking.

And if there was anything to brag about, it's that I saved $1500 from the holiday sales.

U don't care about performance all u care is damn WEI score. Increase memory speed won't add anything.

Intel designed core i7 3770K and all chips ending with K with overclocking in mind so leave memory speed alone and OC that chip to 4GHz or further.
Take my word u have kick azz machine.

"RAM is 1866MHz as I had said"

Yes, we know, but what speed is it running at? Have you manually configured the BIOS settings or are you running defaults? If you simply loaded the deafults, the RAM may be running at 1600MHz. Try using CPUZ to check your CPU & RAM settings:

"This guy like to brag about his toys"

Yes he does.

Thanks for the info. I checked CPUz and the RAM is running at 1600MHz (800x2). I didn't realize it would not automatically run at full frequency.

How do I make it be 1866 like it is supposed to be?

WAIT A MINUTE -- DID NEWEGG SCREW ME AND SEND THE WRONG RAM???

----------------------------

p.s. you're just jealous, because I wasn't bragging.
p.s.s. I bought all these parts with my hard-earned money and spent a whole week researching, and you can do the same thing, just do the research and save the money (or just build the same system i did and then you don't have to research!!)

Newegg isn't a fault here...you are. It would be simpler if you set your memory to 1866 in BIOS.

You are bragging again, most of us can build better machine under 1000 bucks and make it perform like yours. How old are u?

I just about gagged when I saw you sys specs! Like everyone else here said:
YOU HAVE A FREAKIN' BAD @$$ COMPUTER!!!!

Yes. Dig in your BioS for your RAM speed and increase it (if you can). You seem to know what you're doing, so i won't elaborate on how to do it ;-)
