is oc amd cpu easier then intel cpu -- coz i mostly acustomed to intel ..
any help

As mentioned, 4Ghz is very possible. It will depend on your CPU (each has its own limits) and your cooler. You will most likely need a voltage bump in order to get 4Ghz stable. Ask your questions here when you do start overclocking, so we can help you get it stable. thumb.gif

Quadfire is also possible, though AMD chips tend to bottleneck anything past 2 GPUs.

So for the FSB:DRAM ratios, are the only options the 4 that are present in the bios? I'm running 1333 9-9-9-24, and the only option that lets my computer boot up pretty much is the 1:2 option (putting the DRAM frequency at 1120).

FSB is at 280, over clocked to 3920.

If I change the ratios to 1:4 or something in between, the DRAM frequency increases to beyond 1600 and my computer can't run that I guess.

I get most of how adjusting ram ratios works, but this confuses me.

Unless I'm totally wrong, which given this is my first over clock, I'd be willing to put money on.

Krymson what bios are you running?
I am trying to get my corsair to even be recognized and it wont see it.

Yes, you only have those 4 options. You can always move your FSB higher and move your CPU, CPU-NB, and HT Link Multipliers lower. I suggest just using the multipliers to overclock if you have a Black Edition chip.

So your RAM isn't showing up at all in the BIOS? This is actually the first case I've seen where anyone has had trouble with RAM not being seen. Which version are you running right now?

I didnt articulate well in a heated moment lol. Bios sees the memory but it wont boot. I am on 1.3 and trying to update via usb and try then. So much for trusting Live Update. its 1.3 I bought it march 09.
post #9346 of 9641
Appreciate the quick reply! I don't have a black edition unfortunately :-(

So then if the board is rated for 1333mhz ram, how far can you over clock that? Does the depend on the ram or the mb? Notice people running 1600mhz

Thanks!

I updated to latest (1.17? The one from February 2010)

Just use m-flash in the bios.

Bios update worked and I have it at 1600. When i boot up it sees 12 or 8 if i take the ocz out.

When i go into windows system show 12 or 8 respectively , but task manager shows 3325MB either way. Control Center and CPU-Z show all the memory.

Any ideas?

Thank You

The stock rating is 1333mhz (667mhz), but you can run RAM as high as your RAM and CPU's IMC can go. Most AMD chips can run up to 1600mhz-1800mhz (800-900mhz), though Thubans have better chances of reaching higher. I've been able to go as high as about 1756mhz (somewhere around there), but overclocking RAM has no real benefits for casual usage and gaming, so I brought it down.

Glad that update worked for you! Are you using a 32-bit OS by any chance? You'll need a 64-bit OS to use 4GB and higher.

Nice, thanks. In regards to over clocking ram, from what I've gathered when you change the cycles (9-9-9-24) or whatever they're called, that improves ram performance.

Is there any kind of math to follow when attempting to change those values? Or does one just decrease them one by one? I tried changing them to 8-8-8-23 and my comp wouldn't start lol (also increased dram voltage incase that was the issue).

http://ncix.com/products/?sku=55546&vpn=996768&manufacture=Mushkin%20Enhanced

Is the ram I'm using. 8 gb, 4 sticks. I think the ram sucks, came with mb probably going to invest in better ram soon.
