Need your opinion on new system

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I just purchased an ASUS P5W DH Deluxe Motherboard and a E6300 processor. I'm now shopping around for memory and I would like your input. I'll try to oc the E6300 to E6600 performance levels (apparently the Core 2 Duo processors oc well), but that would be useless if I don't get memory that can keep up. Now, PC2-8000 and PC2-6400 would blow my budget (gotta save some dough for the x1900 xt) so I'm thinking of going with PC2-5300. The question is, will I be able to oc the memory to a decent level? Any recommendation on the brand, voltage, timings I should be looking for.

Thanks

Phil

With a RAM Divider you should be able to push the E6300 up to 3gHz w/ 5300 RAM.

G-skill seeme to be one of the better manufacturers of RAM. The Patriot Extreme (6400) series that I have also does very well, though I had to change the timings (they were 5-5-5-15 out of the box, not 4-4-4-12).

VDIMM voltage around 2.1 - 2.2 ought to keep it stable, so check the stock rating as you don't wanna fry your RAM sticks.

Good luck.
