That's what I'm doing.

I don't use AMD Overdrive though.

Are you able to use it, though? That is, if you wanted to?

No prob man it could have been taken either way. I just dont want people to waste their money thinking they really need 8GB's heck I could do just fine with 4GB's but......

Yeah sure, Changing ram timings would not stop it.
Is there something about AMD Overdrive you like? Why not just use bios anyways...

LOL I don't know. I'm kinda new at overclocking and I figured I'd familiarize myself with the process before I get really involved. I like to look before I leap.

Not against, just would like to warn people not to use it as their only OC'ing tool.(hope you guys understood that, I will explain)

AMD overdrive and any other SW OC'ing utility is fine for trial and error. I just want to warn, caution, tell you not to use it for your only means of OC.(aka set it to load your OC at startup) The problem is that if you get an unstable OC and set to load into windows it can be a PITA(for beginners or people not well versed in windows) to "stop" it from applying the OC. I have read countless times where someone thought their OC was stable and set it to startup only to begin having massive BSOD'd upon entry into windows. The question is always, "how do I fix this, I cant get into windows....."

All that being said SW OC'ing is fine to find out(or fine tune/validation/bench) your OC's just please save yourself some trouble and once you have found that final OC set it in the BIOS.

+1 +1 That's exactly why I wanna use it! For right now at least... Once I find out what selection works best, then I'll use the BIOS for a permanent solution.
