Having trouble with my 2500k.... Have a few questions

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Im trying to attain 4.2 stable with the lowest vcore possible.... But one of the things im CLUELESS about is the voltage for my ram. Can I leave it at stock? 1.5v? Or do i set it to offset and let it spike to 1.65? Or do i set it to something inbetween? Or to 1.65? System specs in sig.....

Also if anyone else has any suggestions, Im willing to listen.

Sorry for poor grammar, im really tired.

Im fairly sure that RAM voltage should be manually set, if its on factory clocks, set it to factory suggested voltages.

that thread has useful information on how to overclock your chip, see the spreadsheet.

Set your ram specs manually and leave be. Your using the multi to clock the cpu so ram will not be effected by this.
