You may or you may not. you can repeat it if you wish, but try and keep from overclocking the ram to much, if it starts getting high then lower the ram. try to keep the timings tight.
The NB should have its own multiplier depending on the mobo you end up with. Are you getting an am2 or am3. I think ddr3 is so cheep know i would go with it.
I wouldnt get to stuck on how your gonna do it untill you get your chip. Mine goes like 3.5-3.6 on stock volts. I think a lot get to 3.4 with no sweat.
Thanks again for this great reply. +Rep !
Alright. I've ordered a Foxconn A7GM-S (DDRII) with Corsair XMS2 Xtreme Performance - 4 GB ( 2 x 2 GB ) - DDR2 - 800 MHz / PC2-6400 - CL5 - 1.9 V memory.
I needed to go with DDRII, since I needed a mATX FF Board to fit inside my TT Lanbox lite case.. and frankly, I can't buy/find any AM3 mATX FF Boards here In The Netherlands so I really had no choice...
Still one thing is not quite clear for me. What exactly is NB overclocking ? Is it upping the CPU clock ?
Alright, I'll see what I'll do exactly when I get the chip, but I like to plan things first, so that I know what to do
