I do not know if my mother board would allow me to overclock it.

That is a sick overclock, dotcomthese

ny_driver, look around in your BIOS or read the manual for your motherboard

To clarify how memory overclocking is done, you have to raise the FSB (some manufacturers, like asus, call the setting "cpu frequency"). If you are running at stock right now, your FSB is most likely set to 133MHz. When you raise this value, the clock frequency of your CPU will increase as well as the operating frequency of your memory. To find out what the values will change to, you need to multiply a couple things out. FSB x cpu multiplier = cpu clock frequency. FSB x 2 = DDR memory speed (unless you're running a memory divider, which is useful if your FSB is higher than what your memory can run stable).

I'm gonna buy this. New_egg owes me 30 off my next purchase. I can just about afford 70 out of pocket. Should be a healthy improvement. I was advised that my motherboard isn't a very good overclocker and it works well as is. A little faster will certainly be nice, however.

Meh, it's CL 2.5... you could probably find better for the money

true you could run some 2-2-2-6 ddr 400 and probably be better off..like this ram a lil more cash but probably worth it

Very useful information, and well stated so that I could understand it. My mobo with it's current bios only allows me 100 and 133 mHz to set the FSB to. I have it set to 133 of course.I am currently using speed-fan to adjust the clock from it's standard 133/33/133 to 146.7/36.7/146.7. This increases the cpu speed from 1990 mHz to between 2198-2203 mHz. I tried more i.e. 150/30/150 which locked it up as I kind of expected. I read that xp2400+ max's out at 2.2 gHz. So what kind of potential gain do I have from over****ing or changing the bios on my ECS K7S5A ver.1 according to bios, but says ver. 3.1 on the board. ?

if you are content with the 2.2oc then you have in effect 290 of ram speed so even though the ddr400 would only be running 290 it would be doing it well and if you get another board or go s939 then you have some good ram to start with...thats why I mentioned the crucial ram

Why not get a pair of 2 gig sticks, so your games will run their fastest?
