I went into the UEFI and changed the DRAM frequency from 2400MHz to 2666MHz.


This is the model/part number of my RAM sticks: CT8G4DFD824A.

The maximum officially rated speed for them is 2400MHz, however both the CPU and motherboard support 2666MHz max.
So I adjusted only the DRAM frequency, leaving all the rest on "Auto".


I did a full single Memtest86 pass and also did a Windows Memory Diagnostic run just to check for stability, no errors. All is working fine. But should I be worried about instability in the long run?
 
So do we assume the system fails to boot if you Overclock?

CT8G4DFD824A. is a kit of RAM that is 8GB, so what is the total size of your RAM?

Mixing RAM kits is never a good idea even with the exact same P/N. so a mismatch is probable.
