E6600 at 3.4GHz. Can handle more? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Thread Starter 
thank you... But what is the meaning of overclocking if I would be running the memory less than what it can run? When you say 1:1 ram divider, what does it exactly mean? 1:1 ratio is between Ram and CPU? If so, would not it be the same FSB with the CPU? Knowing that a ram can not handle 1512 FSB I answer my question as "NO" but what is it exactly? Please help me figuring out the MHz of a 1066MHz stock memory when you use 1:1 ram divider.

Thanks,
My System

seeing as those timeings are relatively slack and you aren't going outrageously out of your RAM's rated speed I think its most likely a voltage issue for your RAM. My own XMS2 is rated to run between 1.8v to 2.1v, though I get error's in Memtest at 800Mhz with my voltages set to 2.1v. Perhaps you're giveing too much vCore and with that in mind you may want to try running your RAM at 2.1v instead, or maybey 2.0v. Then again your RAM may not be getting enough volts (though I doubt this). Either way, try lowering your RAM vCore a notch.

If so, how about the healthy communication between CPU and the memory? If CPU runs faster than the memory could handle, would this not also cause the stability issues?
This has been known to occur, but not in your case as your RAM is operateing at a higher speed than your CPU bus and has plenty of headroom to feed it the data. Like I said above, you may be giveing just a little too much vCore to the RAM.

Cheers for the Rep

Personally, I only ever lower my RAM speed below its rated speed to run 1:1 when I'm attempting to tighten the timeings. For example, if you were to run a Core 2 @ FSB400 and your RAM at 800Mhz 4-4-4-4 it would perform better than running @ 1066Mhz 5-5-5-5 because of the tighter timeings. Though this all depends on the type of application you're running.

There was a thread created recently to discuss this which you can find here.
