Already overclocked my CPU, but want more.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I can't really seem to find a stable speed for my CPU above what its at now
3.4 GHZ : 425 X 8 @ 1.375V
I was hoping to get it to 3.6 GHZ but it wont run stable at all. It runs at about 25ºC at full loads right now so I know it can take a lot more.

I was thinking about overclocking my ram instead, but not fully sure what I'm doing on that. I can't remember the exact model of ram i have, but I know its Corsair Dominator series, 425MHZ, 5-5-5-18 stock.

Should I try to up it to 4-4-4-12 and maybe up the MHZ, or do I need to mess with the voltage for that too?

If anyone could point me in the right direction that'd be great!

You can put up to 1.45V in that chip to play safe. As for the ram, I've never had any luck with Corsair. Drop your multiplier one notch and bring your FSB up some. If It still isn't booting, it's the ram. If it does boot, it's the lack of volts for the chip.
