Load Line Calibration and RAM OC

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have 2 questions here. So say these are my CPU OC settings -

FX-6100 @ 4.5GHz
200MHz Bus Freq
1.45v
What should by Load Line Calibration be set to? I have an Asus Sabertooth R2.0 btw.

Second question is about RAM overclocking. Is it as simple as setting it to a higher frequency? Or do I have to play with voltages as well? I have 2x4GB of G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 1866MHz CL9. I hear freq is more important than latency for games so if I have to go say CL10 I don't really care.

Sorry if these are stupid questions, I am not very good at overclocking yet lol. I hope this is the right forum section!

Well LLC can cause negative overclock sometimes, I would advice you to just try out with it on and off, and all the steps it has. Might give you are more stable OC or worse. No way to tell other than to try that I have found out.

When it comes to RAM OC'ing I would rather aim for lower Latencies, each step on the first which in your case is 9, a step down to 8 would equal a 100-200mhz bump in clock. You can try to increase voltage too, I have run several 1.5v ram chips at 1.65v with no issues, and done 1.7v on several 1.65v ones (You can take it even further with no issues usually).
But in short Latencies before clock speed when it comes to RAM. The first one is the most affecting one, and the others not so much.
Check out this guide to get a little more insight on what everything does: http://www.ocfreaks.com/ram-overclocking-guide-tutorial/

Don't worry about your overclocking skills, we all have to start somewhere and learn. So just read guides for your motherboard/similar hardware and you should get a lot of help on your way! Guides for motherboards often show you how to both OC CPU and RAM, so search up those. That's how I learned most of my OC skills back in the day thumb.gif
