Default How much force to my memory for overclock?

Hi, I have 2x CORSAIR CMZ16GX3M2A1600C9 memory kit total 32GB. I want to setup my desktop for overclock but I dont know how much force to my memory for overclock. Normally this RAMs are 1600Mhz 1.5V. Also I dont know this RAM compatible with my new mainboard Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD5H? What do you think and what do you suggest?

do the combined kits pass Memtesr86+ at XMP 1600?
thats where i would start.
also please fill out your specs, overclocking will also depend on what CPU you have.
Thinking about combining 2 or more sets of ram?? even the same part# is not suggested, recommended or supported.

System Specs as of 6/17/10

Go 10-10-10-28 at 1.55v 1866mhz. If can't handle that it's not worth going any lower on timing. May need bump to 1.6v. Or don't bother cuz not going to gain anything you'll ever notice.

Corsair Vengeance 4x8 GB CMZ16GX3M2A1600C9. These are 1600Mhz DDR3 12800. I found a link down below. But I confused there is a two different Latency and timing....

Good morning everybody,

I am in the same situation. I set up my rig last year and spend an eye to overclock one day. Now the time is come and I wanted to overclock the system. I am using nearly similar components like telepati:

Core i7 4770k Haswell
EKL Alpenföhn Brocken 2 cooler
Gigabyte Z87X-UD4H-CF
Corsair CMZ16X3M2A1600C9
ASUS GTX 770 DirectCU II

When I choose medium from Gigabytes smart quickboost options in the overclocking tool easy tune (from Gigabytes), the i7 runs stable at 4300MHz each core. Same at graphics with an offset on 1200% (using asus GPU tweak tool).

But: If I choose in Gigabytes UEFI Bios the overclocking profil Corsair tight 3000 the pc doesn't come up. I activated XMP with Profil1 from the dropdownlistl.

Is anybody out there who uses the same rig or is familiar with the mainboard settings and memory?

Thanks a lot and many greetings from Germany,
