Q6600 Overclock, Full ram slots

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I was wondering as i have two separate pairs of ram sets, Kingston 2 x 1GB + Wintec 2 x 1GB, will it limit overclocking.
I want to try, should i just try with all ram slots full?

Never tried to overclock this cpu, would like to get it running at 3.0Ghz.

As long as the ram is rated at the same speed and requires the same voltage, I don't see why it would not work. I ran a EVGA 680i SLI motherboard with four 2gb sticks of ram. All slots were full and I had no problems overclocking. Try it and see what happens. smile.gif
