Acoma, I'm still learning how to overclock RAMs but for now how can I run my G.Skill PI 1200 to be running at 1200 with the UD3P? It's running at 1066MHz only as we speak.
google MCH strapping if you havent looked it up already.
you could try 400mhz FSB. the highest MCH strap on ur board should be 400mhz, thats what it is on my UD3R. using FSBs that match those listed as the straps makes it easier to reach common RAM speeds. my FSB is 333 and i have the 3.2B multiplier for 1066mhz RAM. i had to mess with this a lot when i was trying to get my OC setup. just set the highest FSB you can get that matches a MCH strap (most likely 400mhz) and then raise your multiplier till it becomes unstable, then knock it back down .5x and stress test there. if its still unstable, knock it down again. this is a very simple way to do it, maybe not the most refined, but its an easy way to get a good OC and have RAM speeds that can match stock speeds. you can go with another MCH strap, like the 3.0 strap in the 400mhz catagory for 1200mhz on ur RAM speed. there is also a 3.33 or 4.0 strap, i forget which, but those are probably too high for your ram to be stable
it will take some getting used to. if you do use 400mhz, you will need a higher multi to reach the same CPU speed you want, but 400x9 = 3600mhz, a good OC.Edited by IntelConvert - 12/24/09 at 4:20am
