What's the proper way to OC RAM??

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm tweaking on my RAM all day and have gotten no where. I don't care how loose the timings are, I just want to hit 270 if I can. Any suggestions on a starting point??

4K gskill should get 270 no problem! Ive never had a DFI board or the gskill RAM in question, but id imagine fool around with your FSB, vdimm (3.2v should be more than enough for 270mhz) and your RAM divider until you get what you want (and the loosest timing available to star toff then tighten then as you find no errors in memtest)

The HZ sets are great I know from personal expierence but not all of them are going to hit 270. I have hit a wall of 264 so far and whats your voltage at, also AMD systems prefer the tighter timings over raw mhz.

And if you put 3.2v into that ram you can say goodbye to them they are rated at a MAX of 2.8v, but at some miracle of god AT YOUR OWN RISK go to 3v but AT YOUR OWN RISK.

I can't get 260 with loose timings. These hate anything over 2.6 volts. I think it's related to DRAM drive strength and Data drive strength. I have no clue what they mean.

What timing have you tried...

that sucks but 264 is still quite the respectable overclock. My Corsair take 2.9 just fine, but maybe I should look into lowering it at bit, eh?

3-4-4-8, 3-5-5-10, I can't remember them all but I've been snowed in here at home so I spent the whole day trying different things. As far as DRAM Drive strength, I tried 3, 4, and 7 with different Data Drive strength settings (mainly 1 and 3) for each.

Have you tried the other slots?

And not all ram is created equal, your 1gb set uses different chips then my G.Skill set. My BH-5 took 3.9v.

No, I was saving that for a last resort, as well as rearranging them in the orange slots since my BT is in the way of one of them and it will be at least an hour job to do it.

BTW, are these TCCD, or UCCD based chips?

Well guess what! Start ripping it apart the yellow slots are for single ram not dual channel and I think single sided ram.

What chips?
