help with overclocking e6400

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Here is the deal. At a overclock of 2.55 mhz my FSB is at 1277.42, 319*8 my mem which is DDR 533 mhz is at 319.3 according to CPU-Z. So Does that mean that my mem is already running above 533mhz, 319.3*2=640 effective? I am fairly new to this so I need some help with this. I plan to try to get to 2.7mhz, But the higher I raise my CPU speeds the mem goes up ,will it crap out? I have been using the AI NOs feature which only goes to 20% overclock, but if I use the BIOS I can raise the CPU frequency up further but I am worried that my ram will not be able to handle the increase. I know this question is simple for most advanced overclockers, but I want to start using the proper technique(the BIOS) but am still a little unsure of how it all works. First I need to know about my ram and if that's the speed it is running at. And can it handle going higher? And third how will I tell if it going too high. And once you have a stable overclock can It all of a sudden crap out(the memory i'm talking about). Thanx for taking the time to help a new overclocker at this fine art. I know using the AI NOS is for noobs, But everybody has to start somewhere, right?!

Yeah you're already running a 20% OC with FSB of 319

If you get 333 fsb you'll be at 667mhz for memory so that'll probably be your limit. Unless those ram OC like mad and you pour the volts to them.

Don't expect to bust much more than 2.6 (you need some new ram BAD)

try this, Go into bios:

Set your FSB to 333
VCore to 1.3
Mem to +.1 or .2 over stock (up to 2.3 volts)

unfortunately, and i know this because until today i had the same problem... your RAM is limiting your OC... i could OC to about 700mhz on my RAM with a FSB OC of 350*8=2.8Ghz - however, this was not that stable...

therefore, with 533mhz RAM i got a stable OC of 2.67ghz...

get yourself even just 1GB or one stick of pc6400 RAM and you will be able to OC easily above the 3ghz mark, even up to the point of 3.6ghz, but take into consideration this also depends on your cooling...

i find myself in the lucky situation where i have managed to grab some Patriot Signature line RAM, pc6400, with heatspreaders at a really good price, so as soon as that gets here, on monday only *SOB*, i can OC my life away again for a while...

Good Luck :d
