Hi i have a Intel DX58SO2 Motherboard, Intel Core I7 960 3.2GHz CPU, Corsair Dominator GT 2000MHz 6GB. My question is that the memory is only running at 1067MHz i would like it to run at 1600MHz but i dont nkow what the setting must be to do that and will it ruduce lifespan of the memory, cpu etc? and one more thing will it increase FPS in games by increasing memory speed?
Increasing ONLY the memory frequency will have a minimal effect on FPS. Most likely no more than 2-5 FPS if even that. For increased FPS, you need to increase your CPU capability or GPU capability or both. This case be done by OCing, upgrading, or both.
