Hey guys. Even with the crappy heatsink and fan I have on it, I've decided to overclock my Opty, just to see where it would go on stock voltage with terrible cooling. So far I have gone to 9x270 = 2430MHz. After that it didn't post, so I thought I should come here and ask for advice. I'm probably doing something wrong with the RAM because I'm a total RAM nub, so help me out please! I have it at 3-3-3-10 2T right now, but it was at 2.5-3-3-10 2T. It did not post at 9x270 with 2.5 CAS, so I put that at 3, and now it doesn't post on 280. I have not tried anything in between those two yet, but thought I should seek some advice here first. This is the first time I have overclocked this specific processor, but the guy who sold it to me got 2800MHz on stock voltage. I'm trying to get to 2600MHz stable by the end of tonight. I want to go to sleep around 10:00PM. It's 9:26PM right now EST. Can you guys help me get there? Let's go!
