Any way to overclock cpu and ram separately?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I fear that my ram is holding back my cpu when it comes to it's overclocking potential. The lowest divider that is given to me is 1:1 apparently, though, it's not enough. Is there anyway I can unbound the two in order to overclock my ram and cpu separately. If not, is there any way i can at least lower the ratio even further. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You should have a RAM divider that goes low enough. What FSB are you trying to get? and what is the rated speed of your RAM.

For example, I have an external clock of 320mhz and a RAM divider of 1:1.50 which means my 800mhz RAM runs at 960mhz. I can still go alot lower if I want.

I want to hit at least 450mhz (or higher) for the fsb. I have it at 430mhz and since i have the divider at 1:1 my ram is running at 860. The ram runs fine at this speed but when I put it at 900 mhz then ran memtest a lot of errors popped up (then the computer later restarted). I know for sure that my cpu can handle it, it just seems that my ram is holding me back.

On nvidia chipset you can just unlink them...you can reduce the divider, so your ram stays at it maximum, and you get fsb raised...5:6 or 4:3 fsb Dram ratio...

See where it says DRAM Speed CPU : DRAM

You will want to try the aboved mentioned settings there

Or set your ram timings a bit looser 5-5-5-18

I was thinking of doing that but my ram timings are already 5-5-5-18 (when i bought them) is it common to have them like 6-6-6-23 or should i just leave them alone. Cpu-z actual gives me two timing tables for each of my ram sticks. One column says that the frequency is 270 and the timings are 4-4-4-13 then the next column says that the frequency is 400 and that the timings are 5-5-5-18. I dont know how to interrupt that.
