    This is the RAM i have.

    1. How is this RAM in general ?

    Currently running it at 5-5-5-15 at 1.8V .
    Its rated to run at 5-4-4-12 at 2.0 to 2.2 V . ​

    2. Also can i run it at 4-4-4-12 ?

    3. Should i run it at those settings ?

    4. That wouln't burn out the RAM ?

    5. How faster will it be ?

    Doesnt matter what ram it is...

    Dont know first hand

    yes it may run 4-4-4-12 try to set it and see

    if you can, do it

    no

    not much, really depends on speed(MHz)

    none if you arent increasing the voltage when you change the timings!

    More speed (overclock) can be more heat which could make difference in a few watts.
