Impossible to do 1:1 in my situation?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am new at overclocking. I spent the day overclocking my CPU (e6600), and I got it to 3.15ghz (350mhz fsb / 1400mhz quad pumped) stable at 55C max running under Orthos for 1.5hrs. I did this with the cpu and memory unlocked, so the entire time my ram stayed at its default 400mhz with 3-4-4-15@2T timing.

Now, after I did that I started reading up on memory overclocking. I am at most able to get a 3:4 ratio going, with my RAM going up to 466mhz (933mhz) with the timing being the same. However, from what I understand in order for my to reach 1:1 my RAM would have to be go up to 700mhz? This is something I don't think I can do. Note, that OCZ allows me to up the vdimm to 2.35 before the warrenty gets voided.

I could really use some guidance. Also, I have read the memory guide that is stickied, but I am stilll very very confused.

Thank you!

I'm sorry I dont understand?

The stock is 800Mhz...you basically need to underclock it to match 1:1...unless I'm misunderstanding you

1:1 at a 350FSB is 350mhz, which will give you 700mhz memory speed. 1:1 is the lowest memory speed that any of my motherboard allow for. What you are thinking of is 1:2, which is much harder to reach and at 350FSB would give you 1400mhz memory speed.

You memory is already at 933. So you are running faster than 1:1 already.

Ah, that makes a lot of sense then haha. After reading the memory faq I got extremely confused I guess my next question would be: Since I am stable at that frequency with 3-4-4-15@2T timings. Should my next step be "tightening" the timings? Would it make a difference? From what I understand, if I can manage to get 1T somehow I will see quite a bit of performance gain... I don't know how much of that holds true however.

1T would be faster, but you will probably have to set the CAS to 4 which should not make a difference anyway. In my case 1T at 880Mhz (440FSB with 1:1 mem ratio or "synced" in the EVGA BIOS) is faster than when I set my ram at 1100Mhz 2T (440FSB with ram at 5:4).

Plus it allow me to run my ram at a much lower voltage (1.9v) because 2.25v killed one of the stick of of my first set even if the ram is speced to run at 2.3v with overvoltage protection up to 2.5v ( I am sure the ram work great at 2.3v on the Intel chipset tho, the 680i like to eat ram heheh). OCZ replaced it and since then it's working very well.
