What's the first step?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys my mobo is only allowing me to OC my e6400 to 2.34Ghz. It is stable with Orthos for 1hr. Temps are fine. Now I put my RAM in a 1:1 ratio @ a frequency of 292.5Mhz. The timings of my RAM were automatically set to 5:5:5:31:17 in CPU-Z. Now to finalize my OC what should I do about my RAM timings? Thanks guys.

You can:

a) Overclock more. Loosen (set higher) your ram timings, or up your vcore

b) Tighten timings for a small performance boost

c) Leave it as it is
