Help with Corsair Vengeance

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm kind of new to all of this and was wondering what the best settings would be for my RAM.

This is for my sig rig below. I have the processor overclocked and stable at 4ghz.

I'm wondering where I should go from here in general, but especially with regards to the memory which is something I don't know much about and seems hard to find (understandable) information on. Most of what I can gather seems to suggest that I won't really see much benefit from messing with the RAM settings. I'm open to other suggestions in other areas, though.

I kept my core clock at 200mhz, the multiplier is at 20x. My HT and NB are at 2400mhz using the multiplier (should I raise the NB a little more and put the HT back at 2000mhz?). I did bump the memory up to the rated 1600mhz from what it defaulted to at 1333mhz with 9-9-9-24-1t. It's at 1.51v. Memtest is stable.

CPUNB is at 1.2v and CPU is at 1.475v.

I'm looking to optimize the system for gaming but have it be stable 24/7 with little risk. (It's only on about 2-3 hours a day, though.)

just manually set it to its rated speed, timings, and voltage and you should be fine. They can be found on the ram stick itself or if you remember which ones you bought you could check online.

Do as mentioned above.
Overclocking ram can be hard because of the many settings you can tweak and the results is often very little improvement, specially for gaming.

For example on my brothers rig with a dual core and ddr2, I tested single and dual channel on some games and the best result I saw was a single fps increase... and dual channel was supposed to double the bandwidth..

Focus on the NB an HT, but I can't help you on that because it's been a while since I last OCed an AMD system

You can use CPU-z to see the timings, voltage and speed that is rated at.
