What is holding me back? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Thread Starter 
Ok i will increase my RAM voltage, and one of my RAM sticks is made by samsung and the other is made by PNY tech. I dont want to buy good name brand sticks until i go C2D with DDR2. so this has gotta hold me over.

EDIT: just increased the ram voltage by 0.01% and the Vcore on the cpu to 1.6 V, Im now running windows at a 2.6 Ghz overclock succesfuly, now i need to know whats the highest Vcore i should try?

How are your temps? You said you got 51C on load before. You should try to stay under 55. So see how much you can get out of that small vcore increase, then check your load temps. If you have a little bit of room there, you can increase the vcore and see what your temps look like then.

Good luck and have fun.
