GEIL Ultra 2200MHz Dual Channel Frequency

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
The configuration is following:

Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R
Intel Core i7-920
GEIL Ultra PC3 17600 2200MHz Cl 9-10-9-28 2GB x 2 DC Kit
nVidia GTX 460
2x 2TB WD Caviar Black 1002FAEX in RAID0

Memory is working only on 1066MHz is possible to make ti work on 2200MHz. I have read something about overclocking CPU but what exactly I need to do to speed it up?

This machine is used for video editing and it does a lot of rendering with uncompressed video material.

I've never done overclocking, but i am not afraid of doing it. I just don't know where to start.

You need to go into your bios and manually change the frequency and timings to the correct specs. Its a little odd to be running a dual channel kit in a 1366 setup so I'm not sure the advertisted speeds would work on your setup.

If you're looking at CPU-z. Or whatever, and its showing up as 1066... Remember its DDR. So... Double that number and that's what you're running at. Like on my 1600, its shows it at 812 atm.

Not meaning to imply you didn't know that. So no offense intended.

If its actually seriously running at 1066mhz, go into your bios and take it off of auto, and set it manually. See how high you can get it to run stable. And what your Mobo, etc, will let you run it at.

I do believe that ram has the x.m.p profiles. So go in tthe bios and select x.m.p profile 2 and it will auto set everything up for you correctly then. Save and exit and you are done.

Meh. XMP reliably waaaay overdoes voltage.

OP, That being said good luck running 2200mHz RAM on X58 with a Nehalem CPU without needing suicide voltage on the memory controller. To get my i7-950 to do 2133 RAM I needed almost 1.5V on the memory controller which is awful for keeping a CPU alive.

Your opinion is your opinion. But it is the easiest and simple way to get his ram to run at the specific speed he asked for. And once he does he can go back and lower the qpi voltage on it. As he has a 920 it will be pretty high for 2200mhz. So he may or may not be able to go down. Just depends on how good of a imc he has.
