Need Advice on upping voltage on NorthBridge for Frequency of 2400MHz.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, i have been doing some stability testing with Prime95 my computer and I'm trying to find the sweet spot for my Ram and NB frequency before finding a good CPU OC.

My current setup is :
AMD Phenom II X2 555 stock for now
Kingston Hyper-X DDR3 Ram at 1600MHz [9-9-9-24]
Mobo=Asus M4A88 T-V evo. 880G chipset.
My NB frequency is set at 2000Mhz.
I spent 4 hours testing Ram stability with Prime95 on blend, and it worked fine
Now I know that usually NB frequency should be 3X the Ram speed(800x3=2400)
So Ideally, it would be better at that 24000MHz
My Question is how much should I up the NB voltage to make it stable?
or is the Frequency fine at 2000Mhz and in no need for improvement?

I would actually probably aim for a bit more, maybe around 2600. You shouldnt have to jump it up that much, i have mine at 2600 running at 1.3v, just make sure you have adequate cooling on the northbridge.
