OC question with multi

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Would I be better off just leaving my OC at 293 x 10 with my ram at 241 or bumping down to 300 x9 with my ram at 245. I am trying so very hard to get to 250 aka sweet spot of my ram but its just trouble some to do.

IMO 300*9 Would run faster as you have lost the 4Mhz on the RAM but added a extra 63Mhz on the CPU (which doesnt sound like much but it will make a lil difference)

Actually I gained on the ram but lost on the cpu in overall. The CPU would be at 2700 vs 2900.

The higher the FSB is the better in relation to your cpu's performance. The best way to find out is to run a variety of benchmarks like Sandra, SuperPi, PCMark, 3DMark, etc and see how it performs. Sometimes a higher FSB with tight timings and an above average divider will yield better results for your computing needs and sometimes a lower FSB with a 1:1 ratio with loose timings will yield better results. You will have to find out for yourself, and the fun is finding it out, or am I just a computer dork.

No your not a dork but doing that can cause you to run around in a square

LOL.

Well so far I got the FSB up to 312 x 9 with my ram at 255 with the timings still at 2-2-2-0 and 3.5v so we arent doing too bad here. I think this might work out a little better.

Why not relax the timings for higher speeds?

Well the timings can be at that for those higher speeds. This ram is truely amazing. So far this is the best I could get with my original 2.9ghz x10 multi which is pretty good I would say.

Also as you know Duke the AMD systems respond better to faster timings. Also I shaved some time off my SuperPi as it was 29s before.

EDIT: I just updated to 1.37 and it says my OC is at 2931.1
