47% Overclock with CPU-Z

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I just spend some time overclocking my memory. I never thought I was going to get such good results our of this cheap kit.

I took a G.Skill 8-8-8-21 1333 kit and got it to 9-10-9-28 1960. Thats a 47% increase in clock speed thumb.gif
Here is the newegg link to the memory kit.

After passing a quick 10 minute test of prime95 blend, I went ahed and ran MaxxMEM.

Here are the results and CPU-Z

That's pretty especially for a thuban! thubans don't really like to do high memory speeds lol.

Nice OC but I don't think 10 minutes of prime will guarantee a stable OC

Good job but hopefully you aren't considering that stable?

I'd recommend doing all of these as a minimum:
2 hours of Small FFT
2 hours of Large FFT
2 hours of Blend
25 passes of IntelBurnTest with maximum memory selected

If it passes all that then I consider it stable. I personally double those numbers for final testing, but i'm paranoid. 10 minutes of blend could still be pretty unstable. I've had some incredibly bad headaches due to memory not being 100% stable. I generally run Memtest for about 10 loops too...

That was just a quick test before I ran MaxxMEM. Not calling it 100% stable by any means.

I did run 10 passes of IBT on max but I wasn't sure how relevant that was to memory stability testing. Was more for a quick CPU oc check.

Nice result thumb.gif

What voltage did you use for ram, cpu and memory controller?
post #7 of 8
Nice! I have a similar set. Got to 939MHz on an Athlon II.Hmm,might have to dig them out and try on my Thuban.
480

This the set,probably the same IC's as yours.

I found the "sweet spot" for this memory. After doing stability testing for a few fours I can say this memory will run at 1904 Mhz stable all day long. I saw way better results at this frequency over the 1960 because it wasn't completely stable. Also gave the NB and HT link a bump up to 3094Mhz.
This is a 43% memory overclock that I feel safe calling stable. G.Skill is the best thumb.gif

RAM is 1.6V, CPU is 1.41V, NB is 1.3V. All other are stock voltage.
