[Question] Is Overclocking RAM worth it?


Hello members,

I’m mostly using my new pc build for gaming and web browsing, with the possibility of video editing later on. I’m using a asus rog strix z370 e motherboard. Would overclocking show improvements in daily tasks like browsing and gaming?

Depends on what platform.

If you’re on a modern intel socket (LGA 1155, 1156, 1150, 1151) then it might give you a few percents better performance, but it’s not really worth your time for the performance gains. if you’re OC’ing on those platforms, do it for the fun of the process, not the destination.

In most cases, you can barely see any performance gains; however, they still aren’t entirely noticeable when used in applications.

In the case of AMD APUs, the graphics cards and the processor share resources from the RAM and an overclocked RAM on an AMD APU will almost always show meaningful performance gains.

In short for RED Team its works
For team blue Works like shit :upside_down_face: :upside_down_face: :upside_down_face:
