2500+ Overclocking - Page 5

post #41 of 49
Thread Starter 
I think a major problem is my RAM (value stuff). I set my RAM to 80% of FSB, put my vcore on 1.75 and my computer was more stable (temps barely went up also, just a degree or two). When I get home tonight, I'm going to try to get it higher.

what speed is your ram again? pc2700? i would guess so since 83% of 200mhz is 166mhz. thats probably the problem. i had 512mb pc2700 in my system before, i bought a 512mb pc3200 to replace it and things are a lot smoother now. consider buying better ram. even some kingston value ram would do the trick.

Best not to run a divder on socket A as it just causes problems and reduces performance too. Put it at 1:1 and work from there.

You may need to bump up the vdimm a bit to get the memory stable at higher speeds than 166Mhz

Wouldn't the memory start to get hot then? I don't have any cooling on it.

Yes memory would get hotter so best to get some active cooling for it. Quiet easy to rig up a fan to blow over it. No need to spend loads on it though. Plenty of ghetto mod guides knocking about.

in our bios is says ddr reference voltage waulpi. i'm pretty sure this is what postmanfw meant by "vdimm".

if you're getting a new computer, then just work with what you have and pump it up!
