hit 3.0 and looking for help? - Page 3

post #21 of 43
I think what is killing the overclock is the 3 sticks of ram drop it to two sticks for dual channel. AMD memory controllers really dont like anything past 2 sticks, thats why we all only have two sticks on this forum.

And you dont need DDR500 ram to get a great OC out of ram, its all dependent on the sticks more so.

oh, didnt notice the 3 sticks, yeah AMD boards are picky about that

Man...i'd be crying about the balistix! furthermore...just think for yourself...if you had ddr500 ram....if you oc with ddr400 you have a limit of 200mhz in which duo already are using a 120 divider...but if you had ddr500 you'd be at 150 divider and you have all the potential forward until you strike the 100 divider! ...man I just daydreamed!haha

u wanna prime95 for atleast 8 hours before, the game may run, but may crash after an hour of use. So put your ram below 200mhz, try 3-4-4-8 timings, and up your vdimm very little. u could try OCCT its a 30min stress test, ill look for the link

heres OCCT
