Any suggestions as to what i should set my ram to for better performance.. Ive got the cpu clocked to 4.8 from the guide i went thru last night.. And should the clock speed flucuate.. Like on core temp it shows 1.6ghz sometimes and others it jumps up to 4.8.. shouldnt it be a constant clock or am i wrong in that thought.

It is normal that idles at 1.6GHz, it does that tos ave energy. It will ramp up to 4.8GHz when it need the power, so its going to fluctuate. You can disable Speedstep in bios if you want it to be @ 4.8GHz all the time.

Set the RAM back to stock timings and frequency, are you able to boot into BIOS?

if you have no need for more speed then an OC wouldn't be noticeable anyways, aside for synthetic benchmark scores

Yep RAM overclocking will only be noticed in the benchmarks.

I was always able to log into bios. After speaking with the tech at microcenter he thinks i just have a ssd that took a crap early.. Kinda annoyes me and shys me away from them. I have to go today after work to take it back and either get a new ssd or a normal hdd, or just use the cash towards a 6950 gpu.. I installed os on one of my other hdd last night and its up and running atleast and everything runs fine. just wanted a little more humpf out of it. Im a motorhead by nature so getting every little bit i can out of something is fun

i have the 1600mhz corsair vengeance and was using the stepping in bios to up the mhz.. 1600mhz in bios was making the computer boot up and shut down up and shut down... So i guess 1333mhz is the max on these sticks.... Thought about just adding another set of the ram also for a total of 16gb but seems kinda redundant for what i do on a computer...

You have your ram tweaked to 4.4ghz ? Thats gotta be your processor.. I already have my cpu running 4.8 with a kuhler 920... Im wanting to boost the ram itself a little bit. I have 8gb of corsair vengeance 1600mhz cl9 http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0359910
