2 Gb kit (G.Skill) any good? - Page 2

What voltage do i have to set them at to run 2-3-2-5 1T? 2.6Vdimm or stock?
Is there a need to test stability with memtest?

BTW how long does memtest take to complete? I'm guessing i should DL Prime 95 and test stability when OCing CPU... yes?

what Vdimm is safe for OCing to 2.5 on CPU?. Also could you explain the divider settings and how to use them accordingly...

thanks, reps for the info

BUMP...

could i raise the FSB from 200-277 (which comes to 2.4) on the RAm withour changing the timings?

would i have to up the Vdimm?

you would definately have to give it some more juice... and that's quite an OC for RAM while keeping the timings the same. especially for 2gb kits. your best bet is to slowly raise the ht and run memtest to check for stabilty. when they won't go any higher, raise the voltage a little bit and/or loosen the timings.

i'd personally suggest, that if you want 2gb of memory, and you want your machine to OC as well as it would with a 1gb, save up and get a GOOD set of memory, like some of the Crusial Ballistix PC-4000 2x1gb or even better, the new Mushkin Redline PC-4000 2x1gb


edit: and BTW, there have never been 2gb kits of TCCD besides in 4x512, the most popular high density IC's are Samsung UCCC - used by by the majority of companies, Micron - which only Crucial has access to, and the new high-yield Infineon IC's which Mushkin uses on their recently-released 2x1gb Redline kits

thanks for clearing that up.

I'll make a mock up of the RAM OC.

default is 2.6Vdimm w/ 2-3-2-5 1T

for 227Mhz i should up Vdimm to 2.7 AND loosen timings to 2.5-3-3-7?

or what would be your OC settings if you were in my shoes?

well it really depends on your RAM. I would first put the vdimm to the highest your memory supports and is covered by warranty. not sure what that is with yours but it's probably around 2.75-2.8.

I would try 2.5-3-3-6 and see if you could do it like that, if not then go 2.5-3-3-7.

it's really all trial and error. try bumping htt up a bit at a time... note you probably should underclock your htt and cpu when testing.

for example, my RAM does htt of 200 at 2-2-2-5, 250 @ 2.5-3-3-6, 260 @ 2.5-3-3-7 and 320 @ 2.5-4-4-8. but it is TCCD so it oc's quite well. with 1gb sticks you're in a whole new ballgame that I am not too familar with.

thanks. I thought my RAM was TCCD? someone said it was...

what type is it then?

thanks
