Overclocking & Choosing RAM for Socket 1155 - Page 43

post #421 of 456
Hi guys!

I have never OCed RAM before, just CPU and graphic card.

I got this RAM (F3-10600CL9S-4GBNT) Homepage

Can this RAM be OCed, and how exactly should I do it? Just put it to 1600Mhz? What about the timings? And the voltage, how high should it be bumped?
What is the right procedure to test RAM stability? Running prime with high amount of RAM?

Sorry for the noobish questions! And thanks for your help!!

Stock is 1333mhz 9-9-9-24, you could try the 1600 strap and see what happens. if it boots use either hyper pi, super pi 32m, or Prime blend for a few hours.

If it doesn't boot, try increasing the DRAM voltage in small increments until you can get it stable. Up to 1.65v for 24/7 is fine. Again if that doesn't work, go back to 1.5v and loosen the timings, with each timing that you change increase the voltage if required to ensure stability. For instance try these:

9-10-9-24 1.5v+
9-10-9-27 1.5v+
10-10-10-24 1.5v+ etc.

Hope that helps thumb.gif

Might test my Corisair Hypers with SB if I get time. Oh, and my SST's before they sell.

Bumped. thumb.gif

Unfortunately still no 2133mhz section, will do it once I get some time. Hopefully in the weekend smile.gif

If there is an error of some kind in the OP please let me know, also if you have anything you would like to share, please feel free do so.

Thank you.

Hi there,

I got a question. I got these Corsair Dominator GT 2133 CL9 1.65v memory modules. I got 4pcs. By they default speed they are unstable at 2133mhz when all sticks are in the motherboard, so I have to clock them down to 1866, which is fine for playing etc.

When I bench with them, I take two of them out, so benching goes with two sticks only. For that I run 2196mhz with timings like 7-10-8-24 1T, and it requires me to push the voltage to 1.75v, and to raise VCCIO to 1.3v, and VCCSA to 1.29v to get the system stable. My Asus board tells me that raising the VCCIO and VCCSA can damage the CPU, but most values I use will damage the CPU so I am not really considering that risk too high (been on these settings for more than a year now).

The question is:
When benching my memory sticks at these settings (1.75v), the sticks still feels cool, so how much do people push their sticks, and are there any memory damaging reasons for not taking them to fx. 1.85v? I mean, the 1.65v sandy memory thing, does it relate to some CPU internal memory controller stuff, and not really what the memory can take before getting damaged?

When using voltage outside of the recommended range can obviously be dangerous especially when you consider using them 24/7. The IMC is built in to the CPU, therefore using these high voltage could kill the chip, IIRC it was FTW420 who increased the DRAM voltage to around 1.9v or something and it just stopped posting, consequently killing one of his SB chip's. Recommended values are there to reduce likely hood of killing components and the 1.65v rule with sandy is one of them smile.gif

Just a note, I too have benched at around 1.75 -1.8v (DRAM Voltage) and all was fine but I won't recommend anyone running that for 24/7. For benching, hell yeah but not for 24/7 tongue.gif

I've never OC'd my RAM before but would like to give it a shot, however I need some assistance with what to do as all the numbers about RAM timing, etc. have me confused. biggrin.gif

I've got an ASUS P8Z68V-Pro/Gen3 board with 16GB of RAM installed. Two different types of Kingston 2x4GB:

These came with the system...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820104262

I added these for cheap a couple months after I bought my system. I know having all the same kind of RAM is recommded, but I thought that these and the ones above were similar enough that I would not have issues and so far I have not had any problems.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820104242

I have my system overclocked to 4.4 GHZ and have the DRAM voltage set to 1.5 in BIOS and it has been very stable.

Thanks!
