What's the proper way to OC RAM?? - Page 2

I'm in orange right now. I meant swap the 2 sticks to opposite orange slots.

Oh, I mean the chips on the RAM itself. I've read in one place they are UCCD, and in another forum they are TCCD.

TCCD are only in 512 sticks there are no 2gb sets. They are UCCD sets. Sounds like either was you need to change slots, as this happened with my old ram I couldnt OC anythign due to being in the wrong slots.

OK, that was what I thought until earlier today.

Anyway, back on topic. I still could use a little help here, surely these things will hit at least 260 mhz???

I started out with my 3-4-4-8 timings that have been stable forever, but they've only been @ around 240mhz. I can't get my Opty to OC with such a big divider, so I need to get these up to 270 so I can try the 166 divider.

I've tried many other user's settings, boot into windows and run memtest for windows and I always get a failure before I reach 20%. I could list all of the settings I used, but I'd be forever typing and you'd be forever reading so I won't bore you with details. Anyway, where should I start, should I use the divider I intend to use in OC'ing (166) and if so where should I set the FSB to? 270 will only set my RAM to around or just above 220, I'd hope I'm stable there but I prolly won't be when I set my FSB to 334, or will I??

I'm gonna try setting everything I can to auto in my RAM timings with no divider and 260 FSB and see where that gets me, but I know I'll be taking a big performance hit with that and I still may not be stable. RAM is such a pain in the a_ _ !!! If only I could understand it better.
