Checking Overclocking:

Overclocking is a standard feature for top-end gamers since it permits PC components to operate faster for the ultimate performance. If you have an excellent cooling system and components that allow overclocking, you can test it yourself to see the effects. However, many users don’t realize whether the RAM installed is overclocked or not. That can confuse and could cause problems for the system.

Here’s how you can test the parameters for overclocking that your RAM has:

  • If you’re using DDR4 RAM and you are using DDR4 RAM, the default rate of the RAM ought to be 2400 MHz or less.
  • When the speed of RAM is faster than that of the standard rate, it may be overclocked.
  • In most situations, you shouldn’t be concerned as it will not significantly impact the motherboard or RAM module’s performance. However, if you’re experiencing issues, you must look into turning them off.
  • To do this, head to your motherboard BIOS settings.
  • Switch to the Advanced mode, and search to find “XMP profile.”
  • The BIOS settings interface could be different depending on your motherboard’s manufacturer.
  • When you have found that profile, you can disable it. XMP profile, you can disable it.
  • Press F10 to close the BIOS, and then click Yes for saving the setting.
  • The RAM should be operating at the default speed.

Conclusion

RAM is among the most critical components in your computer. Therefore, it is essential to be aware of every aspect of RAM that is installed on your computer. That will allow you to understand the RAM module and even know the expected performance. That will also enable you to determine the most suitable choice to replace or upgrade your PC. If you’re unsure about any aspect discussed in this guide, tell us in the comments section, and we’ll give more information about the subject.
