Ram OCing, need some help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hello,

Ok, I have 2x2gig 1000 ddr2 ram, I have a q6600 G0 that have got to 3.52ghz stable. I OC the cpu and ran prime 95 for 5 hours str8 and no dump. But in getting it OCed with help, I have my ram at 780 (5,5,5,15) right now. How do i go about getting it from 780 to 1000 or maybe somewhat higher? Do i just change the 780 to like 1000, or is there more i have to change? How do i test for stablilty? also with my set up is 5,5,5,15 as tight as i can or want to get? I am looking at gaming alot, and want to get this system tweaked for the best performance I can get. I am going to add a Ram blow cooler on the ram in the next couple months(that is if they work good) and in the process of getting new vcards and OC them. And adding a duel watercooling loop system. but, still playing with upgrading MB to a 780i a1 and ram to 1066(but not to sure yet, with all the other upgrades I am doing right now.

try up'ing the FSB on the RAM, leave timings AUTO. Use memtest (comes with Vista) to check for instability. After uping the freq and tested for stability you could try tightening timings, maybe you can even get 4-4-4-12 2t out of that RAM. If you achieve that with over 1000 FSB with that CPU OC you should be satisfied I guess

No worries. Just remember to set RAM voltage to its correct voltage, or you might have autovoltag mess it up.
