Hi Guys,

Sorry but im a bit of a novice on forums (first ocn post) so go easy please.
anywayz.
I was wondering, for overclocking ram, is it alright if i use the spd tab in cpuz and configure to those reading.
and with the voltage, is 1.65 the right voltage or should you go as close as possible without going over???

Thanks in advance.

every ram modle and brad is different

if ur trying to OC generic ram, good luck

mobo dependant also

cpu chipset dependant also

more info is needed

Hi,
Thanks for the fast reply. I was just wondering, whether the timings given in cpuz spd tab, are useable when overclocking.
Thanks,
Mudith.
P.S How do I show you what my rig specs are. I've built in the rig builder.

Timings have little to no effect on the actual speed of the RAM. Just raise your host frequency and adjust your FSB:RAM ratio. Then test with memtest 86 and raise voltage as needed.

First, go into your profile, scroll towards the bottom, and click on your My System. From there you can enter your system so that is shows in every post you make.

Second, lower timings improve performance. For example, I had DDR3 2000 Cas9 ram, but ran them at 1600 Cas6 for matched performance.

Third, the SPD tab shows what your ram ids programmed to run at. In your bios, there is usually a setting called "XMP" profile. This allows your motherboard to read the higher SPD, and set the ram to that. Don't use XMP if you have OCed the CPU by increasing the base clock (BCLK). I am assuming since you have the ram at 1.65v that you have an X58 motherboard and have tri channel ram. Is that correct?

Finally, yes you can run the ram at the SPD stated settings. There are probably multiple SPD settings, and your ram can run at the far right setting. That should be the specified speeds you bought the ram as. You will find as you increase the ram speed beyond the rated speed (say if you bought DDR3 1600 and you are trying to run DDR3 1720), you will have to relax the timings. For example, if the ram won't run at 9-9-9-24 1T, try 9-10-9-24 1T, or 10-10-10-24 1T.
