Will a set of better ram bring me thru the 3.2ghz bottle neck?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
seriously I've tried pretty much everything, from changing the multiplier to all the voltages, to make it stable at higher than 3.2ghz but failed.

last thing I can think of is my ram... will a better set of ram, say, a set of g.skill ram, bring me thru this bottle neck by any chance ?

Maybe change the timings on your ram..i have that ram and same board as you and i get a 43% overclock from my stock 2.3 to 3.4, use the program called memset

Having new set of memory won't actually help much, i went from 2GB OCZ Vista Pack to 4GB OCZ Reapers, even at 2.3v my Memory isnt stable at 1066 mhz with stock timing (5-5-5-15 2t)

Right now im at 800 Mhz at 4-4-4-8 1T 2.2v

Well not really, just run a higher divider to run your memory at an even lower speed to get past your 3.2ghz wall..ive got OCZ Ram and ive hit 4.0ghz on my cpu so all it takes is a higher divider.

Have you tried 1:1 ratio? At 400FSB your at 3600Ghz and mem should be at 400Mhz. This is the best way to eliminate RAM as your problem, and find out if you're at your FSB limit.

Ram is not your limiting factor because you are only at 3.2ghz.
3200/9multi=356
356fsb at 1:1 ratio=712mhz ram.

But have you set the ram ratio to 1:1, if not, those ballisitx could be out of spec.
