How to OC with E6600 and DDR2 533

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi, guys, I plan to OC my e6600 to 333*9=3.0. But my pain is so far I have only 2 512M ddr2 533 (pc4200) Ram. Can i still make this overclocking? If yes, would you please give me some suggestion how to do this? Thank you so much.

First off, you should fill in your system specs under User CP so that people don't have to ask you about your system. Knowing about your entire system will make it easier for people to help you.

That being said, ddr2 533mhz ram will deffinately hold you back, if you want a good overclock you should at least look into some ddr2 800mhz (PC6400) ram.

I'm not an expert when it comes to conroes as I don't have mine just yet but I beleive you might be able to OC a bit using a divider and if you have some decent ram maybe it'll overclock a bit too. (the divider option is found in your CMOS settings)

Set your divider to the lowest possible, loosen your timings, and up your ram voltage.

Pray for the best.

DDR2 533 is second slowest DDR2 ram (next to DDR2 400), and most have minimal to no overclocking potential.

Hi, dude, thanks a lot! So that means it is possible that DDR2 533 might cause a worse overall performance even i OC my CPU to 266*9. If so, I'd better stick on it's 2.4G, and save money for new memory!

Well it won't cause worse performance. You might not even be able to OC with that ram. But it's worth a shot I guess. You should deffinately save up for some better ram (DDR2 800mhz)

Your bandwidth would be limited, but your overall processor speed would be much higher than stock if you used a 3/4 divider (.75, or called DDR2 400).

...because intel is quad pumped....

133*4 = DDR2 533
and
266 (FSB) * 2 = DDR2 533

180*4 (using a .75 divider) ~ DDR2 540 (mildly overclocked, should not cause a problem)

Therefore, this would bring you to 180*2 (360 FSB). 360 x 9 = 3240mhz

Low bandwith (slighly higher than stock), but an overall high clock speed.

If you try this, it should hold you over until you get your hands on some higher grade memory

Thanks man! but i am confused by this divider thing. Could you please give my some idea about that? what this divider means? and how it caculated? where this 180 comes from?Thanks a lot for help with my dumb question.

regardless of the mathematics, it is a definite possibility, depending on how far your ra will let you take it... I'm using 667 rating, and I hit 4014Mhz with my e6600. You wil just have a hard time, and yes, as both have stated, you will be very limited...

Hi, I have a pair of 2x1 (2gb) OCZ value DDR2 533 rams 4-4-4-12. I overclocked my E6300 to a 2.45Ghz with the lowest divider 700Mhz with a 1.8v on the memory and i had loosen the timing to 5-5-5-15... and i was wondering if i could a a 800Mhz with my rams? My rams is rated at 1.8v, can i up it to 1.9 or 2.0-2.1, is it safe?

I'd say 2.2v is perfectly fine for ram. I'd run up to 2.4v if you have active (2.5v if you really want)
