Overclocking That Little Bit More?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
As you can see from the CPU-Z results in my sig, my 4000 is at 2785 - i did really want to join the 3 GHz club, but i know that i can't, so i'm aiming for 2800 MHz, but i think that my ram is holding me back - as suggested i lowered the speed to 333 MHz, and will test that tonight, but i was thinking that only being able to go from 1.5>1.55 vCore might not be helping my overclock, is it? Is their anything i can do to improve it?

Try using an even multi as few boards clock well on half multis. Try looser ram timings, and tighten them again once you gain the higher clock.

He means increase your timings. Bump each one up a notch.

Lower your ram speed as low as it can go...that'll help you find out where your RAM is crappin' out(HTT-wise)..

gotta becareful with the generic stuff, it aint really designed to be overclocked, cheap solution is to apply some HeatSpreaders to stop ram overheating, would definately do what the guys have said, otherwise if you have the cash, looking into better ram solution could be a good idea. somthing like Corsair PC4000 i know that Danm is selling 2GB of PC4000 PM him if your interested.

just knocked the ram down to 266, it hit 255*11 with ease, sure it would do more, but is it worth that extra 50 mhz in clock and 10-20 MHz FSB at the expense of slowing down my ram?
post #10 of 25
you mean FSB down to 266, if you have the ram clocked at 266, i would seriously consider going back to stock, running at 266 with generic ram, your looking for trouble, if you put the FSB at 266, then thats differnt, explain what you done.

if i was you i would go back to stock completely, then start again, remember to set dividers on the RAM, dont want it overclocked like hell, it will just break. set dividers on your ram as you clock up using the FSB
