    Memory does not usually support over-volting AFAIK. Whichever VRMs are supplying the vram with power will not be getting very stressed. In other words, the memory chips will fail before the VRMs do.

    I've just serviced an AMD 64 3200 939 system with an ATi RX 600 with Elpida RAM with literally no heatsink, and a pathetic 40mm fan. The GPU still works after 8 years of use.

    The difference between Elpida Hynix and Samsung is how well they OC and has nothing to do with longevity.
