Overclocking RAM...sorta.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am going to be overclocking my proc. from the stock 1.83GHz to 3.5GHz (7x500FSB). Basically, I want to get my FSB up to 500 while maintaining 1:1.

RAM Info (straight from NCIX http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...7;20Technology ):

There may be more info about this RAM on NCIX if you don't already know it, or you could google it.
  • 800MHz DDR2
  • CL 5-5-5-12
  • Unbuffered
  • Gold Layered XTC Heatspreader*
  • Lifetime Warranty
  • 2.0 Volts
  • 240 Pin DIMM
  • OCZ EVP (Extended Voltage Protection) is a feature that allows performance enthusiasts to use a VDIMM of 2.1V ± 5% without invalidating their OCZ Lifetime Warranty.

My Questions:
  • Will I be able to get even close to 1000MHz?

If so...
  • What voltage do you think I would be looking at roughly?
  • Would I be looking at custom RAM cooling or will stock do?
  • Realistically what timings do you think (tightest) it could run at this overclock?
  • What temperature do you think I am looking at with stock cooling and will I be able to run this 24/7 without seriously wearing the RAM?
  • What is a good temp for this RAM to stay around under load for a 24/7 OC?

Any help is beneficial to me and I will be grateful. Thanks in advance.

Increase vdimm to 2.2 and use memtest for stability. If that doesn't work, try 2.3, then 2.4. I would not go over 2.4 if you don't have a fan next to it to cool the rams off

Alright thanks for the reply so you're saying I could possibly hit 1000MHz and if I get it at or below 2.4 I can run this 24/7 without problems?

*Edit: Also, what about the timings would I have to loosen those or can I leave them the same?

Lol i have 45 buck cheaper ram than that and it reaches speeds of 540mhz+ and i guess the way you say it that would be 1080 speeds. That ram if you increase the vdimm to 2.2 should be able to maintain probably 5-5-5-12 still at least
