Sweden’s No.1 overclocker Rauf has put together guide a pretty in-depth guide to memory overclocking on Intel’s Broadwell E platform. The guide involves Rauf’s extensive experience using the ASUS Rampage V Edition 10 motherboard and helps show just how easy it can be to get a solid memory overclock thanks to improved boards, BIOSes and ICs.
Here’s a taste of what Rauf has to say in the guide’s introduction:
“In the early days of Haswell-E, memory OC could be a real pain in the ass. But fear no more, with improved boards, bioses and ICs, memory OC is now easy. Memory overclocks higher and tighter and is much more fun and rewarding. I will be using the ASUS ROG Rampage V Edition 10 paired with 2x8GB G.Skill B-die retail memory matched with 2x8GB Galax wazza memory (yes you can mix brands just fine). The CPU of choice (my only X99 CPU) will be a 6950X.”
“One of the best parts of BW-E memory overclock is that since you cannot reach anywhere near the frequencies of Skylake, you don’t need to bin memory that hard. Most B-die sticks will do, even your Skylake rejects should be fine.”
As always, it’s great see experienced Elite overclockers sharing their experience with the community. Kudos to Rauf for a job well done. You can check out the full guide here on the HWBOT forum.
