RAM and CPU OC question

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I have an E6300 CPU and DDR2 667 RAM. I am wondering if I increase the CPU's FSB if the RAM will have to be overclocked as well.

Yea, if you overclock one, you OC the other. If you dont want it going to fast though(limits your CPU overclock) you can put a memory divider if your mobo allows it.

EDIT: Please put your system specs by going to the User CP on the top of the page.

The effective FSB on the processor is 266 MHz, and the RAM speed is 333 MHz. If the FSB is increased on the CPU, do I have to mess with the RAM?

Your FSB on the CPU and the RAM should match or the RAM should be higher, but not by much as the above ppl pointed out, to keep from bottlenecking....IMHO

I read it just now. Looks like I can get to 2.3 GHz without touching my RAM.

That multiplier is x7 you should try like FSB=330-340 to start then set a lower divider and find your max FSB!!

No, it depends. In my motherboard BIOS, I have the choice to overclock my CPU:
-Optimal (dafault, not overclocked)
-Linked (overclocks both DDRAM and CPU)
-Expert (manually overclock what you want, overclocking one component will not overclock the other)

I plan on doing a light overclock. Only 20%. I don't need it for that, correct?
