Hello i look forward for a reply. My system specs are:
AMD Ryzen 3 1200 @3.7ghz
MSI B350 Gaming Plus Motherboard
Gskill Ripjaws v 3200mhz 2x4gb kit
I have already set my ram speed to 3333mhz without changing voltage i am looking for some help overclocking and adjusting timings. I have read some guides and I am confused overclocking my memory. Any help where to begin tweaking the voltage, frequency, and timings.
 
about 1.4v for passive cooling
1.4v up to 1.6v with active cooling
1.6v up to 1.8v with ln2

btw all ryzens have memory hole (every cpu has its own in ~200MHz range) its somewhere around 3400-3600...mine cpu has it at 3433, which means 3433 will post but anything higher up to 3633 will not post, 3666 did post, but dont wanna burn my kits xD

No one can say how far your can go. RAM kits are usually highly binned, with memory that's capable of running faster being sold as higher speed kits. So I wouldn't expect it to get much further than that. Especially since you're already close to the max speed of what 1st gen Ryzen can usually handle.

Ok. I got my speed at 3466mhz 16 18 18 18 36 at 1.43v stable. I think that is too much voltage. How much dram voltage can i push through it? I have heard that changing the soc voltage can help oc with less ram voltage. Is that true?
