youre in good shape they are a lil oced cause your current oc but, in order to really change the speeds and experiment you gotta go into the bios and go to the advaced settings. hold ctrl and press F1 the screen will flicker quick. when you enter the settings again you will see more options including ram options when you change the ratio it changes the speed, if you are going for high speed loosen the memory timings then tighten them when you find a stable speed. Check out the ballistics thread and see what people are getting usually around 1000Mhz , there alot of tuning involved i run 1:1 if i remember right

if i change my mhz to anything higher then 1:1 my stress test fails. so its at 1:1 now and the timing is 4-4-4-12. so i try to get the timing lower? i guess the mhz will be stuck at 825.

up the vdimm then. i have my tracers at 2.30 running a bit hot but they can handle up to about 2.4. give it a try.

hint: intel benifit with high Mhz then tighter timing.

well before with the volts at 2.2 timing at 4-4-4-12 and 1000mhz it failed the stress test right away. now with 2.3 and same timing and mhz its running it for about 5 mins already without errors. if it stable like this should i raise the mhz up another notch til it fails? then back it up to the last working mhz?

OK just so you kn ow I wouldn t run more then 2.2v with that ram. A good way to get a rma going on.

Whenever you run more then a 1;1 multi on your ram your stressing your NB. Keep this in mind when ocing. Also when your uping your fsb you are as well so you need to raise your vmch a bit. You could probably lower your vdimm and raise your vmch and get stable at those timings.
