Overclocking my Memory

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have Corsair 1024 MB DDR Ram (2x512 MB DDR ram sticks) and I'd like to overclock them. It's currently at 220 mhz for some reason, which is pretty slow.. are there any ways for me to overclock it in the bios or something? It's running on an AMD Athlon 64

It is DDR so actually it is running at 440. 220 is the bus speed but multiply that by 2 to get the actual ram speed.

Voltages, timings and temps for your RAM. Yes, your RAM can get too hot and get screwed up or not OC as high b/c of it.

Temps and voltage for your NB make a difference as well.

Wrong. His memory is running at 220MHz, transferring 2 bits per clock. So, it is as if it is running at 440MHz, transferring 1 bit per clock.

(Same with DDR2, but effective speed is 4x actual speed, as 4 bits are transferred per clock.)

Just increase your FSB/HT value in the BIOS. Make sure to test stability with Memtest. Use the guide in my siggy.
