My System Specs

Default

The CPU still handles your RAM and has to constantly talk with it. The more work your CPU has to do "keeping up" with your RAM (i.e. more channels populated, higher speeds) the more it takes away from your over-clocking headroom. This analogy is not technically accurate ofc. Even though you think you can tun the RAM seperately from the CPU, they are still linked in a manner. Also, you run the risk of your RAM causing crashes when run out of spec and making your system unstable.
