Will raise DDR3 or DDR3L memory speed up to maximum limit shorten its lifetime ?
If DDR3L age is 5 years old since the fabrication with normal usage at 1333 MHz, not max speed, over time till now and is to be set up to 1600 MHz max speed limit, will that shorten the lifespan than letting it be? How many more years it'll last in the future ?

No it's not going to affect the RAM

You are much more likely to shorten the life of any internal computer component by fitting a Cheap No Name Power Supply but running the RAm at the speed it is designed to run to will in no way do any damage.

What you have to look at is will the CPU support that RAM Speed? This si assuming that the M'Board will in the first place.

Heat is the enemy

by TheChas In reply to Will raise DDR3 or DDR3L ...

When you run devices faster, they often produce more heat.
The heat generated and the cooling of the computer are the primary concerns you have for the life of the memory and other electronic components.

As long as there is sufficient airflow over the memory there should be no change to the functional life of the memory.

Of course not

No it won't. It's made for this.

Life span

It will not affect the lifespan of your PC.
Better change the cooling system.


I feel old using a ddr3 too when I read this article.
