Overclocking venice with mis-matched rams

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Please see my signature for my system specs. Kindly tell me if i will be able to overclock my venice 3800+ with stock fan and mismatched ram i.e. i have the following rams.
1. 2X256 ddr 333
2. 512 ddr 400

If i will be able to overclock than a walkthrough of how to do it shall be much appreciated.

Thanx

P.S: Also can somebody tell me what is the performance hit i am getting by using mismatched rams.

A64's dont like more than 2 sticks of ram, so I'd recommend taking those 256's out. They will greatly hinder your oc if you dont.

yea i agree plus there making your DDR400 ram run at DDR333. lets start by setting your HTT to 3X, uping your Vcore to 1.450V setting your ram to run a divder (assuming you take out those 2sticks) to DDR333 then up your FSB to 225 run Prime 95 which can be downloaded here http://files.extremeoverclocking.com/file.php?f=103. let it run for 8hours if iit doesnt fail up the FSB by 5mhz untill it wont post then back it off 5 run prime again if you get upwards of 250-260mhz set yor ram to DDR266
