Overclocking the HyperX Predator RGB DDR4-2933 on X470 Platform

I tried to overclock the Predator RGB DDR4 on the X470 to see if it can still reach 3200MHz. Below is the CPUz screenshot of the default or stock settings of the system.

I was able to overclock the Predator RGB DDR4 to 3200MHz with a CAS Latency of 16. Overclocking it to 3200MHz was easy, but it was also its limit. I overclocked it via the motherboard’s BIOS and simply bumping the memory clock to 3200MHz. Depending on the motherboard, there are features that lets the motherboard do the overclocking for you. Below is the CPUz screenshot of the overclocked settings.

Now let’s check out how the Predator RGB DDR4 performs on both Intel and AMD platform on the next page.
