Overclock problem

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
ok well i overclocked my cpu to 3.3ghz and my ram too 915 457.5 mhz each.
my cpu volt is set to 1.42v. Now my ram is set to 2.1v and timings is 4-4-4-12
and when i go any higher with my cpu everything is unstable. Now i got my cpu to 3.5ghz 1.45v with my timings set to lower so it was at 7 something and everything was fine. If i want to over**** my cpu and keep my ram well over pc ddr2 800 how can i get my ram to be stable? Should i lessen my timings? i tried to up the volts to 2.25 but i still had the same problem, and i dont really want my ram volt that high.

Loosen timmings, or increase voltage. I would keep it around 900mhz.

ive read that many people have got their memory to 1000 plus no problem, but they usually have their volts well over 2.1. I have read some people have their memory at 2.3volts

how much of a performance difference will there be between 915 at 4-4-4-12 timings, and 1150 at 5-5-5-12

more bandwidth but higher latency...latency affects amd systems more than intels....em i did exactly what your trying to do with my sig computer and i couldnt get it to run stable...it just would not happen...my unstable settings were 1000Mhz at 2.325v 5-5-5-18 2t...best bet is to drop down to ddr667 4-4-4-12 timings. if all is good try tightning timings up some more and see how you get on

does anyone know if the ram will overheat if i raise the volts? Also, is there a way to see how hot your ram is getting? I have very decent cooling in my case, so i do not think it is an issue, but then again i have not really done much ram overclocking. I have the rad with 3 fan's on it pushing cool air into the case and 2 120mm fans behind the grills bringing cool air in as well, with 1 120 in back, 1 90mm above that, and 1 90mm on top all exhaust.

If you're trying for 3.5Ghz on the E6600 your FSB is going to be quite high, even on the x9 multiplier, and I don't think 1.45v is enough as I needed 1.55v to get over 3.4Ghz.

dont go over 2.3 volts with the ram...i pushed it just to see if it would become stable...the ram will just fry if you go much farther...you should try my idea...what speed does the ram sit at when you lower the divider?

i just tried to do 3.6 ghz because its an even 400fsb and it brings the timings to ddr800 and 1000. I set the ram to 800 so i could do tests. The computer booted but the only problem was when i tried orthos it failed right away. I have the volt set to 1.50 and in cpu-z it says my cpu is using 1.44-1.46v.
Do i need to raise the voltage more? What is the reason for the test failure?
Is there a way to get it stable at 3.6?
