Overclock My RAM Help. - Page 3

post #21 of 80
I would treat testing for memory stability just like CPU stability Longer the better.

But yes you could do that until you run into a mem instablility.
Small wonder.

Hi there...a few pointers:

-Test with IBT max memory, 5 passes
-Then a superpi 32m run with no errors
-If you wish add a hyperpi 32m run

As for clocks, I'd go for 2133mhz cl9, that would be the sweetspot for your cpu and memory controller. You need to get your cpu-nb speed up to 2700-3000mhz to get a performance increase though.
Try these timings and let me know how it goes:

1866mhz multiplier, 230 HTT speed.
cl9-9-9-24-2t auto subs
1.7v

No sweat...remember to have fun and post some maxxmem benchies at 4.5ghz cpu.
post #25 of 80
what I do to test my ram overclocks is to run memtest 86+ for 20mins and if its ok carry on overclocking or tighten timings if its not ill add just a tad voltage or lower it.
I find that amd likes tighter timings over faster speeds.
set your default voltages and timingas and lower one timing, so if its 8 8 8 24 go 7 8 8 24 and memetest for 20 mins, if its ok do 7 7 8 24 and soforth.
if it crashes at the timing you have just changed change it back and drop the next one

my dominators are at 1600 6 6 6 18 stock there 1866 7 8 7 24

You're quite lucky with them, memtest86+ only works for stock clocks for me. Doesn't make a difference stability wise. I can pass that overnight and still be unstable running spi32m or ibt. biggrin.gif

I use that booted off usb and then I use memtest in windows and prime 95.

I've used it too, but regular memtest86+ is only good to test stock clocks to determine if the sticks are good or faulty and in need of an rma.

I only overclcok at night, IU have about 2 hours spare, then I do a small stress test for a while, then fold to make sure smile.gif

Would it be too optimistic If i lowered everything to CAS 7? Would it be very bad if I put vDIMM to 1.725?
