    HyperX Automatic Overclocking the higher MHz the better ?


    Ok so I was planning to upgrade rams on a DDR3L 1600MHz laptop I have and then I cam across an interesting finding that Kingston managed to make rams that can automatically overclock themselves . They have been around for a while now but till date I see no in depth information of how they work nor real support from Kingston's side , nothing but braggers that just like to post they have one up their rigs .

    So basically my question is , I found HyperX rams to come in 3 speeds 1600 , 1866 & 2133 with minor difference in price , now that my laptop's bus/cpu are designed to operate at 1600MHz wouldn't it still be better if I went for the 2133MHz version knowing it can handle the overclocking heat much better that the thing is actually designed for near DDR4 speed ?

    P.S I have tried both my laptop's & kingston support and had no feed back from both since on that one .

    In particular, XMP (extreme memory profile). Your laptop may not be set up to use that by default. It's likely that the RAM will fall back to 1600 MHz, regardless of its rated frequency.

    My newest desktop motherboard (Asus Crosshair VII Hero) runs its RAM at the default frequency, and has to be set in the BIOS to use the RAM's SPD determined frequency.

    I don't know whether your laptop permits choosing an XMP. If not, there's no point in choosing faster RAM.

    I am aware of the slow down the rams will get to meet system's bus which is actually 1600MHz however my question is :
    Wouldnt buying a ram that is capable of operating at a higher bus act better when over-clocked since it is designed to work at nearly double the bus speed ?

    Also please from whomever had a HyperX or similar upgrade would you hint us some on how it works ?

    Does your laptop permit overclocking?

    I never tested with bios , its phoenix anyways i don't think it has any option for over clocking but I do it sometimes via intel extreme tuning utility , however if I understand correctly with Hyperx rams I need neither , they claim they have 2 built in over clocking profiles that trigger per ram increased usage and then slow down back when things are stable so technically the ram does the job so ?

    I'm not familiar with the Kingston HyperX overclocking claims. For what I see at their web site: https://www.hyperxgaming.com/us/memo...king-education it's not obvious that the RAM is anything different from other RAM that has two XMPs present.

    I see no claims about the RAM frequency changing as a function of load. Can you supply a link to that?
