[OCZ] Plat.Rev 2, PC6400 RAM Question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
ATM i have 2GB [2 x 1GB] PC 6400 OCZ Plat.Rev 2 RAM

These ones infact

In the summer i plan on gettin an E8400/E8200 on a P5K-E And doing some overclocking

My question is,

Will i need new RAM?

I was thinking about the
Crucial BallistiX PC8500 As they would be able to handle the higher FSB

I'd be using a 445 FSB
[890MHz 1:1] on an E8400 or a 475 FSB [950MHz 1:1] on an E8200

Would you reccomend going for the higher speed RAM to ensure stability?

I'm sure the P5K-E Has lots of dividers, but atm im unsure of the math behind the ratio's

If i had a 4:5 RAM/FSB ratio would it be calculated such as,

FSB - 475 / 5 = 95

95 X 4 = 380 [760MHz RAM]

Yes?

Cheers for any responses,
+Rep for helpful people

I'd hang onto your Platinum sticks until you can verify that you'll need new ones. Those things are great and are super cheap right now so if you find that the ones you currently have are enough to do what you need then you could pick up another 2x1GB kit for about $30 after a $30 MIR.

I'm a big fan of upgrading only what I need to, when I need to.

Hey, I have the same ram, they used to run up to 950mhz at stcok volts ran them that way for about... 3 months before they went unstable and now they fail memtest on stock clocks and volts. i'd suggest new ram if you want to keep your ram above 800 mhz if your underclocking to the 780 or w/e u said then it should be fine.

I used to run Plat rev 2's in my old X2 system, I had them OC's to around 900 MHz no problem.

You should be fine with them, although the ballistix (800Mhz) might allow for tighter timings.
I'm using PC2-6400 ballistix with my E8400 at 3.8 with 4-4-4-12 1T timings
