How does RAM effect overclocking

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I bought a Celeron D 2.93 478 and installed on an Asus p4p800-e. I am using 1 stick of 1gb pc2100. How does my slow 2100 effect my overclocking ceiling?

It has little head room. For example if you have OK pc (3200) ram and you want to get a really high FSB then you can run that ram in a divider making it start at 333 mHz in sted of 400mHz. PC 2100 is the lowest mHz so it is unable to be set in a divider on most motherboards, I think it can be done but its really tricky.

well, it is going to slow down your OC because your memory works hand in hand with your processor's bus speed. I think your bus speed is 166, so your memory would have to be rated to run at that speed to not have a devider. (since your memory is rated to run at 133) So you would have to run a devider to OC your cpu, which will slow down your overclock (memory will be bottlenecking your CPU) If i were you, i would get 2x512 or something like that (2x of something so you can run dual channel) of PC3200. That will allow for a higher OC..

Ram is not the only thang limmiting your OC. It would be really help-ful if you filled out your profile. Just go to "usercp" in the top left corner of the screen. What kind of cooling do you have?
