2 kits of THIS

hmmmm, With the Latency being soo loose at 1333MHz, I can't see it coming, You might be able too if you pump at least 1.3V on the CPU-NB and 1.68V on the RAM, you could try for 1600MHz

Sorry for stealing your thread, but I have a question about NB voltage.

is it wise to bump CPU/NB Voltage to 1.50v? I wanna get my NB to 2800MHz but under 1.50v my system doesn't boot. Thanks.

Micro Center is like heroin for me, but they can be expensive. I'd recommend eBay, New Egg, or Tiger Direct for parts.

That being said, the Cooler Master Hyper 212 is a great CPU cooler for not a lot of money, but I would agree with everyone else that my RAM would've been DDR3-1866, or at least the 1600. Micro Center has Kingston HyperX's on sale (with a $30 rebate) for only $50 (http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0360527), $20 cheaper than the lowest-priced 1333 I found there (Crucial Ballistix). If it's not too late, take the 1333's back and pick up some 1600's with the rebate, save money, and get better performance.

Max CPU-NB can go is 1.55V, Not wise to do so for 24/7 though, and it's not good to push it.

try 1.37-1.45V between those areas.

Microcenter memory is rated 1333 CL9... usually at an extended 1.65V unfortunately (usually generic kits never need more than 1.5V, but higher means even lower than generic binning)

Expect no overclockability out of that RAM kit.... and resultingly, no bus clock overclockability for your entire system

Usually if you want to reach DDR3-1600, you have to buy DDR3-1600. Sometimes if you use a multi-locked processor.... if you want to reach 4Ghz, you have to buy DDR3-1600. It usually drops randomly to cost less than DDR3-1333 nowadays...

How high could I OC with a 212+ one fan? I dont even think I could get to 4ghz
post #18 of 21
I'm not sure actually, I haven't subjected myself to a 212+. It can handle overclocked AMD processors to some extent though - I'm pretty sure I've seen others take their Phenom II to 4Ghz under a 212+.

Wut? I wanted to OC it but I didn't know it could go to 4ghz. Was planning on 3.8ghz. And I'll see if I can go to MC tomorrow so I can change the ram. Its 1.5hr drive so I doubt it. What would I be able to do with the setup I have ATM? Like would I be able to get it to 3.8ghz? And I've heard that if I bring my NB up from stock speed it would help performance. There a tut on that somewhere?

I have 1333 mamory, its also micron D9's which go to 1600 6-6-6-16-20 1T smile.gif
