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 4000 MHz. Once we get over 4000 MHz it is hard to expect much more out of kits, but we were able to get this kit up to 4400 MHz without even touching the timings or voltage! That is very impressive!
All of our benchmarks and stability tests ran fine at this speed too!
