Corsair Dominator Platinum 2x8 2400mhz CL10 to 3200mhz CL16 >?

Hey dear forum

I am curious about something but cant find proper information about that.

 

I have 2x8 CL10 2400mhz rams 1.35v. And I am so curious about it.

I would like to use it with higher mhz but imo its hard to get keep it at cl10 if mhz goes up.

There is the question corsair rams have same specifications on 1.2v 2133mhz but they are changing at 1.35 so if i keep the CL at 1.35v can i get the highest mhz?

 

As example you guys can check two link.

Which is if i can overclock mhz to this 3200mhz with CL16

or

3200mhz CL14

Ddr4 rams 2x8 kits all same specs at 1.2v

As a general rule of thumb, you need to go +1 on CAS latency for each standard memory frequency you hop up to. So 2500-2600=11, 2666=12, 2800=13..., 3200=15. Try 15-17-17-35-T2 @ 3200MHz. If you want to try and tighten more to 15-15-15 or 14-16-16, that's up to you, but I would consider those sporting propositions. I would also stick with the 1.35v as you move through. If you almost have something a need just a bit more voltage, that might be a good trade-off, but there is no real reason to run 1.40v@2666.

 

You also might be able to get 11-13-13-26 (or similar) @2666/1.35v. That might make an interesting comparison point with your 2400 XMP and 3200 speeds.

thanks for answer.In this case my example correct if we check the other corsair rams? all of them has same specs at 1.2v 2133mhz and same timing.

But they changing at 1.35v depending on CL & MHZ

 

When my motherboard arrive to me. I will give a try about these options >D

The 2133 MHz (15-15-15-36) settings are the JEDEC standard all DDR4 modules must be run by default. Any other speed or timing set must be provided through the XMP preset system, but neither will give you a true indication of what the memory can or cannot do. 2400C10 is not a common setting and your modules likely need both the voltage boost (1.35v) and to be a high quality batch of material to accomplish that. This likely means you can run adjacent speeds at better timings than most other kits. Whether or not you can take that all the way up to 3200 is another matter.

 

So the two main factors in what your kit can do are the material quality and your voltage & timings. The second is the only one you can control. Your kit could not run the 10-12-12 timings without the 1.35v. At the more common 1.20v for 2400, it might run 11-13-13 or 12-14-14. More voltage means more heat and 1.35v is the place to stop for most people. Dominator modules tend to scale well going up in frequency (and loosening the timings), but as you reach for higher speeds, other factors can come into play, including motherboard quality, CPU memory controller, number of modules, etc.

 

I am not sure if you are looking for general information or trying to gauge the viability of a purchase. The 2400C10 is a very good kit and you will not find better modules at that speed. However, if running 3200 MHz is a definite desired goal, you might be better of purchasing a specific 3200 XMP kit. That same kit can be tightened down and likely run with similar timings to 2400C10, although I suspect the 3200 would would benchmark better, albeit slight for most applications.

I see. I want to overclock them to that 3200ghz beacuse of

 

[ame]

[/ame]

 

I want to compare them because i have to see what happens

 

first of all i will use them as 2400CL10

after than if i can i will do them as you give me some examples

I will try to put that number for them.

 

If i gain some fps i will use them with higher fps if dont cl10 2400 is fit for me. thats why i choose them

 

I think you see my point why i want to put higher mhz! >)

That is interesting. It seems we have different rule books for Intel and AMD performance right now. The differences between 2400 and 3200 on Intel almost never make a difference and I have spent two years plus witnessing the same. If accurate, the above video suggests a definite hop up when climbing frequencies, both for average FPS and also for the minimum. That is something noticeable.

 

Sounds like you have a plan. Good luck!

Tyvm for all your help <3
