Hey guys. Noob overclocker here.

I'm planning to switch my current RAM, PATRIOT VIPER RGB (2x8GB) 3200MHz CL16 to KLEVV Bolt XR (2x8GB) 3600MHz DDR4 CL18 for aesthetic reason. I believe they both are running similar performance in XMP mode.

But will it affect my current CPU overclock? hmm.gif

Got mixed answers from Uncle Google so it's the best to ask folks around here.

Even a Windows update may affect your overclock ...

Depends on the compatibility of your mobo and CPU with the RAM.

Always update BIOS before you buy newer RAM.

You can check compatibility here.

G.Skill also got QVL on their own kits.

Coffee Lake DDR4 performance:

3600 C18 will give you tiny boost.
