Hit a wall, whats next?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Guys, I have hit the proverbial wall. Take a look at what I'm running and see if I've done anything wrong. I would really like to push a little further, but am at a loss as to what to do next.
Any help?

Actually I think you hit a tree!
There should be a lot more in that system
What settings are you using?

First off on the RAM, increase the divider.

Ummmm, I think it's set at 4X right now. You think it should go to 5X

Divider, ie. set to DDR333 or DDR266, your RAMis currently running over 250MHz, you need a lower base speed to allow it more OCing head room.
Your screen shots show it at a 1:1 wit the CPU and I doubt it can go much higher so the RAM is what is holding you back!
You may even want to try 10x on the CPU so you don't need such a stiff divider on the RAM.
4x on the Ram memory controler should get you to atleast 260, so your near needing the 3x now.

I think I don't understand yet, I only have a 9X on the CPU.

Sorry, I was thinking of a 170, my bad

Drop the RAM to DDR333 and see how much higher you can go. Once you error out the RAM you have to drop to DDR266.

Later, google your RAM, see what other possible known timing tweaks and the safe max voltage it can take so you can get more speed out of it. Unless you already know that

Please tell me how to drop my RAM to DDR333, Is this something I have to calculate for speed? See, I don't really know what my ram is rated as, is it DDR400?

You have PC3500 or DDR433. Setting it to DDR333 in the BIOD instead of DDR400. Your BIOS my go by the base speed ie. DDR400 is 200MHz and DDR333 is 166.

Check out the link, some great info on timings ans it's OCability, if that is your RAM You already seem to have beat them in the OCIng of it already

Just curious, how much volts on the RAM now?

OK, the ram is rated as DDR433, with 2-3-2-8 timings at 2.6/2.7 vdc. I'm already at 2.7.
