Would a ram with higher MHz bus than motherboard's overclock better ?

    Well the comparison should be in favor of Kingston already , HyperX rams are designated for overclocking , they come with a heat sink and on board automatic over clocking chip that only god knows how it works

    Hi,
    Compatible timings... will outweigh a memories heat sink :)
    Buy them and see
    If you don't like their return policy buy from a place that you do.

    buying from a different source isn't available in my region . hence why i'll do it on a trip to a different region .
    basically i am assuming on running rams over clocked at 1800 MHz bus they shouldn't even heat since normal bus can take up to 1866 normally , that is like underclocking .

    Hi,
    Is there a law that says you can't take the machine on the trip :)

    there kind of is , i am taking work's laptop , i can't just consume my weight limit with so many gadgets , even geeks dont do that .

    Hi, just mentioning "laptop" precludes most of overclocking because of poor and locked settings in BIOS. In theory, DDR3 is starting with 1066MHz and everything above constitutes OC. In modern RAM that is done using XMP profile written in modules internal controller which BIOS is supposed to recognize and set RAM accordingly.
    Other than using XMP. RAM could be OC-ed in several ways. One is by just adjusting it's frequency but that also means it will raise Cas Latency diminishing overall performance gains. Voltage may also have to be raised for reliability which is poor option for battery life and generates more heat, both detrimental to laptops.
    Other option is to change RAM divider which is not adjustable in most modern desktop boards let alone portables.
    Raising BCLK/FSB is another way but that also raises CPU frequency and frequencies of other buses (PCI, PCIe and SATA) and if it's exceeded too much can also draw more power and produce more heat. VRM in laptops and in desktop boards may not be up to task, reducing even more heat and eventually throttling down whole system producing bad instability and worse performance under a load.
    Actual memory controller is in CPU and may not take it kindly to raising frequency, protesting in various was. Every CPU has some manufacturer's determined "natural" frequency and going over it (if possible at all) produces very little gains. Raising RAM frequency without also raising CPU frequency by one step (like 1600 to 1866MHz) may add only couple of % in memory performance which also features only about 1% in overall system performance in best of cases. Hardly a cause for spending more money on it.
