If i get ddr3 ram...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
On on my sig rig I have ddr3 1600, but for my new intel rig, if i were to get 4gb of ddr3 1333, could i just go into the bios and up the ram multiplier to x8 to make it 1600 just like i can with my ram now?

You might be able to. You might not get it stable though.

It depends on the memory. If you're buying absolute cheap-o 1333mhz without heatspreaders that are binned like crap, it's a gamble hitting 1600mhz. RAM is pretty cheap nowadays, you can grab this kit of Mushkin with a heatspreader, 1600mhz 9-9-9-27 @ only 1.5v for $45.99 shipped. Since it's lower voltage (1.5v in place of 1.6v/1.65v like some kits) you should be able to either tighten timings or increase the frequency a little more too with some more voltage.

I see, how would i increase the frequency of the memory? Doesn't the 2500k use a Bclck instead of an FSB and it gets really unstable just from moving it from 100mhz to 101?

You can usually get up to 105mhz stable give or take a few mhz. But with an increase in voltage you still should be able to up the divider to 1866mhz and still be stable. How much voltage and what timings, I don't really know but if I had to guess maybe 1866mhz 9-11-9 @ 1.6v - 1.65v should probably be okay.
