Someone mentioned overclocking RAM, can speed up your system. Is this possible, how is it done?

It's also possible to burn your ram out as well isn't it? - if you do it too much?

running a lamer cpu at stock might allow some overclocking of ram since the cpu bottlenecks performance enough to keep the ram from crashing

the amd64 cpu's with onboard memory controller's are exactly the opposite, cruddy memory has trouble running at stock settings

usually only deluxe versions of premium brand motherboards offer the appropriate settings in bios to increase ram voltage and adjust all the memory timings and system/memory bus speeds

bottom line, forget overclocking memory, it does burn it up

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
