4:1 Ratio Why? - Page 2

I am actually going to go for 3000mhz. I am overclocking one thing at a time to weed out stability issues that might arise from overclocking five different things at once.

overclock your CPU first, then do the NB, then do the ram. Set your ram lower speed, so it isn't a factor. Then up everything, then go for the ram.

That's exactly what I had in mind.

I am wondering though if I want tighter timings or higher mhz with the ram though. :S

sounds like a good plan. Go for like 3.7 or 3.8 on the CPU to start with. Then push it up to 4.0 or 4.2. then push the NB.

Yeah, you are running it correctly now. My guess was with your last set of RAM you were looking at the CPU-Z tab when your CPU was downclocked due to Cool n Quite or some other C-state. If you had them turned on in the BIOS, it will downclock when not under load and CPU-z will show you as being at like 100 FSB with a lower multiplier. I'd say you looked at the memory tab when it was downclocked and it put the ratio at 1:1(since your FSB is downclocked at that time) until it ramped up to full speed were it would have been 1:4.

I have already hit 4.0ghz before stable. We had a storm and my mobo was taken. I lost all of my settings and I think there was something wrong with the old board anyways so I am having fun starting over all again from scratch.

sounds like a good plan. Have fun with it. Make sure to watch your temps and you should be fine.

With my H80 setup, I haven't seen 53c yet and I am running IBT and p95 at the same time.

Why? that is stupid to be honest, both programs max out the CPU by themselves. so running both isn't doing anything more.

I want to max it out x2! If it's truly stable, it will survive 20 flops at max while running p95 in the background.
