Check the ICs used on them via Thaiphoon Burner. The IC type can give you a rough idea of what OC potential you can expect and what timings to try at certain frequencies (from basic scaling characteristics).


Otherwise set 16-18-36-2T, raise the memory voltage to 1.35V and raise the memory frequency step by step until you loose stability. Then go back one or two steps and do a more thorough round of stability tests.


The MSI motherboards also have a function called Memory TryIt, that can achieve something similar.


If you are a beginner at memroy overclocking, you might want to check one or two tutorials first, that explain the basic steps and some of the pitfalls.
