G.Skill DDR2-1000 problems

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've noticed there's another topic on this ram, but mine's a bit different

I've been trying to OC my CPU past 3.4Ghz but my ram keeps getting in the way. At 3.4Ghz the FSB is 425 and with the ram ratio on auto it runs at 1020Mhz. Everything is fine with this setup.

I've tried to get to 3.6Ghz with an FSB of 450. That with my lowest ram ratio of 2 brings my ram down to 900Mhz. I'm fine with that but the ram isn't. I keep getting a blue screen after i log on to windows. The voltage is at 2.1V for the ram. If I set higher ratios (next one being 2.4, I get the ram at 1080Mhz; this won't boot.)

So I've decided that it's a voltage problem, but I'm not completely sure. I've tried lower voltages (1.9V & 2V) at 900Mhz and I still get a blue screen.

I can also try and clock it higher, question is how much should I raise the voltage lets say to run the ram at 1080Mhz?

If anybody has any other opinions, do suggest them

Thanks,
Alex

I had to manually set my timings to get my G.Skill ram to 'play nice' with my Gigabyte mb. There is a forum on the G.Skill web site. What I found there helped me out, maybe it will do the same for you
