Overclocking

The default XMP profile has timings of 14-14-14-34-1T at 1.35v. Our MSI X370 Gaming Titanium test motherboard currently doesn’t have an adjustable reference clock and 3200 MHz is the highest setting, so any overclocking was out of the question. I decided to try and tighten the timings instead. To get any real change I had to raise the voltage to 1.37v. That allowed the timings to be reduced to 14-13-13-33-1T. There was no significant increase in speed, but when combined with AMD’s latest update, we saw a dramatic 13% decrease in latency.
