OCing with new ram

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, so I restored my system to default settings just to make sure everything went ok with the SSD install. Everything is working perfectly so far, but I want to get back to 3.7GHz. I got new RAM, but I was curious how low can I go on the CAS settings? The voltage is 1.5V, is it possible to bump this voltage up a little?
Thanks

Here is my ram:

Unfortunately as they are a generic DDR3-1333 CL9 kit and 4GB DIMMs, the poor binning is likely going to take them as low as 8-9-8 and no further... and speed, 1400Mhz (at 9-9-9) and no further. This may even hold back CPU overclocks, however with the 955 black edition, it will be fine as you can just raise the multiplier. At least that's what I've seen with many of the generic 4GB DIMM kits.

The limited bandwidth (ideally you want 1600Mhz on AMD platform regardless but in RAM intensive situations this may be more important) may hold back your SSD potential, as RAM usage and bandwidth requirement increases significantly with an SSD.
