what ram are you running ? is it this 2GB Module PN - OCZ2P8002G x2 kits if so your timings are critical and cpu voltage as well. 800MHz DDR2 CL 5-4-4-15
(CAS-TRCD-TRP-TRAS)
Available in 2GB Modules and 4GB (2x2048) Dual Channel Kits Unbuffered Platinum XTC* Heatspreader OCZ Lifetime Warranty 2.1 Volts 240 Pin DIMM
. what command rate are you running with 4 sticks you will almost always have to run 2T for stability.

No problem I am still a nub at all this but to answer your question yet I have it set to 2T here is what I have right now.

OCZ Platinum v2 ram that says it can run at 4-4-4-15 and 2.2v and I have manually set all this in the bios.

When running the full 4 gig and using MemTest86 I get about 8 memory errors and also cannot run a stable 3dmark06 or any other benching software.

When I remove 2 gig I get a clean run of MemTest86 and all other software also, I also swapped the 2 gigs for the other 2 I had taken out with the same results. Also used the other DIMM slots to be sure that I did not have a bad one.

Currently I am running



Just not really sure where to go from here.

My Bios currenly is set as this:

CPU voltage 1.475
CPU Frequency 220
CPU/Chipset HT Voltage 1.3(.5 overstock)
HT Speed 4x

Still not stable with 4 gig but fine with 2 gig

sorry for the double post.

Have you found the limits of your primary oc componants.

FSB limit = ?
Cpu Clock limit = ?
RAM OC limit = ?

It is easier to determine what is going on if you know the overclocking limitations of those three variables.

I do not have everest ultimate and I tried the basic version and it did not seem to recognize some of my stuff correctly, but as far as cpu goes I am running ~35c idle and ~48c full load. May need to try the ultimate version and see if I can get better results.

Also I am currenly running 3dmark06 with my 4gigs but with my ram underclocked to ddr2 667 so its at about 730ish fsb on the ram and seems to be running through it.

Here's something to ask yourself: why bother with 4 GB then? Cutting-edge, resource-demanding games like Crysis and Far Cry 2 only ask for 2 GB according to the recommended sysreqs. I don't know why I am bothering with 4. Oh yeah--my brother randomly bought me more RAM. Why? I don't know, but these boards can hold up to 8 GB. LOL.

Not that I have really documented, but maybe I will run through the OC guild and try and max each one out since my ram seems to be doing ok with this underclock. Maybe I can OC my cpu a little more to get my ram closer to the 800mhz mark

I was thinking the same thing, but its a challange now!! If I loose then back to 2 gig I go lol or back down to 3.2 where it was stable

I would find out the limits as suggested above and if you find the ram to be the limiting factor see if you can borrow some pc8500 from a friend or someone. If that is not an option then you can always loosen your ram timmings to 5.5.5.18 2T and see if that helps you overclock to a higher yet stable running rig.

OH one other think slink mentioned just running two sticks. You could always try running two sticks and push it even further to see how far you can go so you'll know how far you can go with 2 sticks then you can ebay all four sticks in two seperate auctions and get 2x2048 pc8500 FTW

I am actually about to build a new rig in mid February so this is a good learning experience to really see how well certain components play with each other. Never would have imagined more ram could be worse!!!
