Problem OCing with 4Gigs RAM

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Here's my system


Intel C2D E6400
Thermaltake CL-P0114
4Gigs Corsair C2XX1024-6400 RAM
MSI 975X PE M/B
EVGA 8800GTS
Hiper HPU-4K580 PSU
Lian-Li PC-V1000 Plus II

Now before I got the 2nd pair of chips I had this oced to 3.2 wih 400 FSB RAM at 1:1 4-4-4-12 and the RAM at 2.0v. Problem I'm having is ocing it with 4 gigs of RAM I cannot get it to POST when I oc it. I tried bumping the voltage up to 2.25 and still nothing. I was able to get 300 FSB I wat 400

Having 4 sticks puts more stress on your memory controller which hinders your oc. Better to have 2 sticks of 4GB than 4 sticks oc wise.

I'm hearing this more and more. I as well have issues with 4 sticks. I have to seriously mess with bios settings just to get anything over stock (and sometimes stock) to pass memtest. I know my sticks are good because I have tested the pairs alone and things run fine. Even if I can get a simple 3.0 OC going that doesn't mean it will pass again after a couple reboots. And still yet if memtest passes then Prime95 will crash and blue screen me into a restart. Take a pair out and things get more stable.

In the manual says for gigabyte that modules must be single sided to have 4 sticks
