The reason I ask is one of my sticks died on me lastnight. I had them running @ 800Mhz at 4-4-4-12 on 2.2volts, just according to specs.
This is known issue with your mobo. Running over 2.2v, users have reported RAM suddenly dying. You might want to look into getting some heatsinks for the mosfets and active cooling with a small fan...

How do you over clock memory?

I have looked in my bios but there are alot of things you can change, but not sure what to change and not to mess with.
If you are able to adjust the FSB speed in the BIOS...you will be increasing both the CPU speed and the RAM speed as well. The options you would want to change are just the RAM dividers and the latency. For the dividers, you can probably select ddr 533/667 or 800 in the BIOS. These are the dividers, that control the CPU:RAM ratio.
Just use CPU-Z to find out what latency, speed and divider you are currently using.

Quick question guys.How long do you test RAM in memtest to be truly stable?I'm currently running my 2 Gig PC28500 Ballistix on Memtest for 12 hours now @ 1120Mhz with no errors.
Extended tests are more for temps than anything else...if you supply a 'heavy' enough load, you will determine much sooner, if errors are going to occur.

ie- I run 2x MemTest, each instance using 850mb's ...then run a 8mil SuperPi. I also have CPU-Z, Ai Probe, and TAT running for monitoring purposes. If it passes the Pi test...I call it good.

*Keep in mind, that method is what I use for stress testing my SMP rigs..they fold 24/7, even when gaming...

Awesome, thanks for the reply. That's what I was trying to find out, if it was a known problem or not.

Hey guys,I was wondering if any1 in here could give me some help in getting the rated speed out of these stix.I got 2 Gb of 1066 tracers 2 days ago and can't get them stable at 1066.I know this is an AMD board with a standard of 800 but........

First thing when I installed them I set the voltage to 2.2v rebooted and checked the v. readings in the bios and adjusted accordingly.

I set the timmings as close to factory as possible with this board 5-5-5-15-26(crucial says 30,board only goes to 26)2T.

I planed a small oc at 3.2 on my 6000+@1.45v(allways stable from 3000MHz-3300MHz) with 267 bus speed,12x multi on cpu,800 devider on ram(highest standard on this board),4x multi on ht,4x multi on cpu-nb,4x multi on nb-sb.This setup resulted in cpu-3.2,ht-1068 and ram-1068.

The board booted up fine.whent through the windows start up and onto the desktop but as soon as I moved the mouse apps started poping up on their own and it whent frig'n nuts lol.I tried several combos but all I got was bsod.

It's running fine right now and stable at 3.3 cpu and 945 ram 4-4-4-12-16-2T but I'm sure there's something I'm missing.Another member on here(topdog) has a cpu-z validation of his m2n32 sli and a 6000+@3.2 and ballistix@1280!So what gives?Is there that much diff between these boards?

Thanks for your time.

I would say, you need more voltage. If the tras is not adjustable below 26 I dont see you hitting 1200mhz with those.

I can run a 30 tras if I bump the voltage on my 1066 ballistix to 2.3v, but at 2.25v setting 30 causes errors. Why not just tighten up the timings some more? You'r not going to hit 10k of bandwidth with the RAM running slower than ~1200mhz anyhow..so why not try ddr2 800 at 3-3-3-8-3-25 instead?

So far, using Everest to record my results, 800mhz @ 4-4-4-10-4-30-7-8-9-9 at 2.3v has tested the best for Read/Write and Latency, other than 1150mhz+ speeds @ cas5

Read-8064mbs
Write-3079mbs
Latency-54.5ns
