How To Overclock Your RAM for Ryzen Using The Ryzen DRAM Calculator

The DRAM Calculator for Ryzen calculates the optimal memory settings. May be useful for improving RAM performance. Compatible with AMD Ryzen processors only. Overclocking is best done through the motherboard BIOS.

This article will show you how to use the DRAM Calculator for Ryzen. The software does not overclock the RAM, but only helps to select the recommended parameters. You can check how the RAM will feel. There is a built-in MEMbench for stability testing.

How to use the Ryzen DRAM calculator

First of all, you need to specify the exact data of the installed memory modules. The user selects the settings appropriate for his system. Let’s use the Thaiphoon Burner utility to view module characteristics. Although its functionality is much wider.

Memory overclocking parameters calculation

Comparing with the previous version, DRAM Calculator for Ryzen 1.7.3 removed the R-XMP button and Calculate EXTREME . Instead, we added Calculate FAST buttons for optimized, stable settings and Calculate SAFE for fast, but at the same time safe settings.

Everything is now moving on to calculating the optimal parameters for your modules. To find the optimal timings, click the Calculate SAFE or Calculate FAST button . Next, enable Compare timings to compare the set and suggested parameters.


You can compare the suggested timings and the ones already set. Of course, for overclocking, you will have to increase some values. Much more depends on your memory modules. Some modules do not lend themselves to overclocking at all, only using the XMP profile.

In some situations, the timing values ​​will be displayed in different colors. Red means the memory has reached the normal voltage limit (up to 1.45V). Green indicates a safe area. You can also see intermediate values ​​(orange and turquoise).

Stability testing

The MEMbench section has tools for testing RAM stability. Additionally, you can use the AIDA64 program . The selected preset of settings will have to be set manually. The next time you turn it on, you need to test the system.


There are several built-in memory tests. You can specify the desired one in the Settings> MEMbench Mode subsection . The latest version integrates a test of the ability to read and write memory. Actually, the overclocking potential of the memory depends on the specific hardware of the user.


The Ryzen DRAM Calculator is a RAM overclocking aid for AMD Ryzen. Offers stable sets of memory timings optimized for your memory set. With it you can achieve high-quality memory overclocking with greater stability.
