Our overclocking session with the XPG Spectrix D40 3200MHz RAM went pretty smooth. Our overclocking journey begins by increasing the DRAM voltage up to 1.37v for a starter, then we kept pushing the multiplier with timings on auto until the system became unstable. Then we dropped down a notch to find a stable overclock. And we landed on 3600Mhz with 12-21-21-43 timings on auto.
We then started tightening the timing at 3600Mhz and we finally landed on a stable overclock of 3600Mhz at 17-19-19-36 timings. All while the VCCIO and VCCST were set to auto. The stability was tested with a combination of Mem86+ test, Aida64 Extreme stress test, and Prime95 Blend test. All while the VCCIO and VCCST were set to auto.
So how much performance increase did we get with that extra 400MHz? Let’s find out below:
