Memory won't run 1:1, system unstable - help!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok guys some of you may have been helping me through my woes in the past. Well now comes another one. I've been trying to get past 3606mhz on my p4-630. I just tried setting my memory into a 1:1 ratio with the FSB and I had instability. The system wouldn't boot. Before I set it 1:1 the memory was running 200mhz and the FSB was 240mhz. I up'd the vdimm to 1.9v and then when i rebooted there was nothing. Any ideas on how to run the memory in 1:1 will be appreciative.

PS - I am also still trying to get past the 600mhz OC so any advice on that is appreciated as well!

I'm having the same issue except with PC3200 ram. Try loosening the latency and then running 1:1. You'll probably be screwed like me and lose processor OC to get a minor increase in memory OC. See my bandwidth thread "Help with increasing bandwidth."

With PC2-6400, you shouldn't have any issues with running 1:1 on your system. I would suggest setting your timings manually if you haven't already done so; some systems have issues with SPD timings. Also, you may want to bump your vdimm a notch. At that speeds, stock voltage should be enough, but sometimes a bit of extra juice is helpful, even at relatively low speeds.
