Where to start OC'ing - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
I am my own worst enemy when it comes to figuring out formulas on my own. LOL

base clock = 266 or 267
multiplier = 16

ddr3-1333 (1333/2) = max speed (XMP profile)

FSB:DRAM = 5(1330 or 1335):2(1333)

Questions -

Is this really as simple as it gets?

Can someone check my math?

Is it better to underclock my FSB:DRAM by 3 or overclock my FSB:DRAM by 2?

I have a hardware switch to change my base clock 133/166/200. Since I'll be using 266 should I put it at 133?

Thanks a ton for all the help.

So I ran a counting macro to find a base clk & FSB:DRAM ratio combo check and these are the results. Assuming my math above is correct.

166

Which one would be my best option? Personally, I think the 222 6:2 x19 would yeild a very stable build once I get my voltages sorted out.

There has to be something I'm missing..

I was able to get up to 220 base clock with a 1.25V VTT, all other voltages set to auto.

Reset BIOS.

I was only able to get to 160 base clock with 1.20 VTT and 1.1 ICH. When I went up to 170 my machine wouldn't even POST. I had to jumper reset it.

Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
