The easiest way to overclock on the Intel platform is to simply change the frequency divider in the BIOS. To achieve the best overclock we try to stay with the timings that the XMP profile recommends. If we run into any issues we will bump up the voltage to see if we can get our system to boot and become stable.
The XMP profile puts this kit at 6000 MHz. We were able to get the memory up to 7200 MHz by just adjusting the divider in the BIOS. That is without even having to loosen the timings or up the voltage, which is very impressive!
Here is how our overclocked modules stack up…
